      Hey guys,

      I got bored and decided to try my hand at making one of these.
      Keep in mind that all I had to use was ms paint so I had to keep it really simple (sometimes simple is better though?)

      Front:

      or:



      Back:


      note: Maybe in that big space you could pencil in your DV username or something (ex. "Tell em' Billybob_001 sent you!")


      What do you think?

      Simple was the key. Sorry if I didn't write the same thing as everyone.

      EDIT : Eh, the first one came out more constrated than it should have; the blue was supposed to be feint but whatever I only spent 10 minutes on the lot of them; while doing other stuff no less. I'll see if I can't come up with anyting better.

      Clairity says it, it looks good!

      I like the idea of "tell them Kromoh sent you!" then the referrals would have some good meaning

      I think we need to do something thats just creative and extremely minimalistic.

      Lucid dreaming itself is basically having everything even when you have nothing.
      We don't want to attract everyone that picks up our cards, just a certain audience that will appreciate what we have to offer. (I just ask myself: "Would I be interested if I found this card?". I have to say that if I found a card with clouds and silly new age things on it, I wouldn't.)


      Which is why I think a minimalistic card with a handwritten greeting by the distributor would probably be our best bet. (we want people that are friendly and love to have a good chat about things)



      On a side note, does anyone know what would be the best way to make these cards?
      I was thinking just print out a sheet or two of them with my printer then go and photocopy more on better materials.


      EDIT

      Ok just thought up a new design based off the last one:

      Front:



      Back is the same as before.

      My 2¢

      No printing and just emboss is sexy

      3.5x2" @ 0:0 on Avon Brilliant White, Classic Linen Cover, 80# w/ Emboss

      Fun, would be better to substitute a modern sans serif monospaced typeface instead of Courier New, but I don't have one

      3.5x2" @ 1:1 or 1:0 on Avon Brilliant White, Classic Linen Cover, 80#

      Neither of these incorporate the blue, but I like the mystery of the card better. I think people that would be interested in LDing would be more likely to follow an open ended card

      I tried making one and, although it's definitely on the ink-consuming side, I think I did pretty well for my first business card design, though it lost quality in the upload

      I still have a big stack of the cards that seeker made a long time ago. I should put them places around my college...

      Me too. I just got a bit despondent that I put so many in good places, and handed out too, and it seemed like it had no effect. I know at least 2 people found it and thought it was mysterious and fascinating, so I fully expected to see them come to the forum. Seems like I was wrong :/

      Shift, which is the font in "You can learn to be awake.."? It's very cool.

      I like the first one most, I I still think there should be a way to make the banner blend with the blue part better.

      Currently I prefer eating and sleeping under a roof to relying on business cards to recruit lucid dreamers

      Someday...

      I was actually in a Borders the other day and I jotted down "Dreamviews.com" on a little pad of paper where they had pens to be sampled. So... perhaps? haha

      I leave little notes on trains all the time with the DV url and LL url, along with pictures I've drawn.

      I draw on the train, fold it up so it's not ugly but noticeably something that isn't scrap, with little arrows pointing to where to unfold.
      You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light.

      Dude, origami....!

      If I found a paper swan or something I'd totally do whatever it told me to do on the inside!

      Haha, like you did with the pen you sent me? Should've drawn something in that.

      Hmm, now there's an idea. I just might start doing that! I'm pretty good with a square piece of paper.

      Only problem is the url would have to be visible from the outside, otherwise I'd probably never unwrap it....

      I like doing orchids. I could write the URL on the stems and on each petal write a message, "Are you dreaming?" "Do a Reality Check!" etc., etc..
