      I dunno, probably double sided.

      I'd like something to catch their attention on the front like the "Are You Dreaming" thing with some graphics, but not something that will cost a fortune to print.

      Then a small message to come visit us at our URL on the back.
      Possibly even add something about our active forum and it's url as well.

      I think some people might see the main page and fail to notice that we have a forum.

      EDIT: I can get 100 of these for $15

      Did you make those? Where are you going for the prints? (and on what type / thickness of paper?... if you know that yet)

      There was a place around here that would print you 1000 full colour double sided buisiness cards for $99, I don't know where I put the flyer though.

      And thats in aussie dollars so I don't know how much it would be in US$

      edit:
      I did this cloud one, but i think it still gives off that 'god' look.

      Yeah, I know. Probably comes off as a little hard to read and a little "evil scripture"-ish.

      Just a little.

      I found that online. They had a bunch of pages to help you create your card. Thing was, I had to choose from a canned background.

      Here is the url: http://www.overnightprints.com/main.php

      I'll be going to the local Kinko's during lunch today to see what they have to offer.

      I'm also thinking about putting my dreamviews email address down in the lower right corner. That was, if they pull my card from the fishbowl at the local resturants, they will know how to contact me for my free lunch!

      Doesn't all the colour gradient and full colour cause issues for business cards... esp versus price ?

      Local CopyMax store will let me have 1000 text only for $11.99.

      Guess I'll go the simple route, white with black ink.

      Are You Dreaming?
      www.dreamviews.com

      maybe my e-mail address, or perhaps create a new email so I don't get spammed.

      I thougth of, after looking at the other suggestions here, a info card with a reality check.

      The idea was the smaller the text, the bigger the curiosity. When striving to read one need to concentrate more on what really stands there. To pick up "Lucid Dreaming" in the context, i think could be rewarding, if one come across the words another place trough the web, friends, books it could lead to bigger curiosity. Under "Are you dreaming" there is room for some info, compact info, questions... And with a little reality check over, a lucid bible buisness card

      The back side can have lots of info, the front side should just have 'Are you dreaming?nwww.DreamViews.com' IMO
      The front has to be striking, so I also reckon a plain white background, with a pretty font, medium size, smack in the middle
      And the url can be a little smaller - its the reality check part that needs to grab initial attention

      Well, have you considered putting more information on it? One side should invoke curiousity, but people need a reason other than curiousity to visit a site most of the time.

      How about on one side, have the "Are you dreaming?" In small (but not illegible) letters, and the URL in the bottom right corner (along with Seeker's email, should he choose to do things that way), then on the backside, have some simple sentence like this:
      Control Your Dreams,
      Unlock Your Mind.

      Yes definitely - minimal info on the one side, and more info on the other

      Yeah, something like that one we did earlier, the simple one, but black and white.

      On the back perhaps a brief description of Lucid Dreams, scientifically most likely, and then seekers e-mail address, possibly userame?

      I quite like that actually. A scientific description on the back! Scientific, yet enticing - explaining what lucid dreaming is, and a little about what you can do in it (or at least hint towards the unlimited possibilities).

      $28 for 250 double sided cards....

      It's gonna have to be one sided. I like the minimalist approach. Just finding a card laying around with "Are You Dreaming?" printed on it is bound to get someones curiosity up. Once they visit the forum, hopefully they will be hooked.

      I remember seeing a card laying in a phone booth in London one time. It said "My way is your way". Turned out to be a business card for a call girl. I've still got that thing laying around somewhere in my junk. It made me grin.

      Of course, I don't want to cast our pearls befor the swine, and therefore will exercise a litle discretion on where I leave them. Last thing we want is a bunch of rude wankers flocking in here disrupting the place. Some ideas of where to leave include:

      1) Public and university libraries
      2) Local New Age store
      3) Restaraunts (not McD's!)
      4) Phone booths in the mall

      Yeah, the minimalist approach sounds the best to me.

      I would definately not just throw them around either, it sounds like a good idea to put them in certain places instead of everywhere.

      Hehehe. Call girl. How'd you find out that it was for one of those? Did you like, call a number?

      i think something like that might deter people from visiting. to me, coming right out and saying that sounds kind of wishy/washy, new-agey, or occult-like. i think the intro page on our site does a nice job of "warming one up" to the idea of lucid dreaming; just diving in i think can turn people off. i don't think there's enough room on a business card to say what should be said, so saying essentially nothing perhaps is best.
      Each new day is a chance to turn it all around.

      Then there are those common folk who appear interested, put the card in their pocket, get home, then forget what that they wanted to go to the site. Sad, but true. Overall, the cards that have been made are excellent, and one only has to imagine what they will look like once emboss and impressed with letters of sorts (if that is the approach your heading for, as in the letters "sink in").

      I dunno about anyone else but that sounds expensive to me. I don't think thats what was going to happen, I could be wrong of course...

      It would look neat thouge.
      What if we made differnt versions which we could choose to print out. Its our own money we have to use so those who want can go for the expensive.

      I just now saw this thread. I like the whole idea.

      I also like the minimalist approach, with just "Are you dreaming?" and then the url. I think it makes it more mysterious, more intriguing.
