    I like everything except the call for free quote, The font size looks a little to big. When I look at the card that is what stands out. I would tweak it to see different looks. Just my personal opinion. I like the trees and the oval with your services.

    I would suggest using the same font for everything and one that is easier to read.

    E-mail address, website and phone # should all have a more basic looking font that is easier to read.

    I like this revision but just because, flip flop your name and phone numbers, maybe make your name a little smaller also. Or put your name and free quotes on the back side.

    I say loose the cell #. Replace it with a fax #. If the client or potential client is important enough, you can always write your cell # on the back or something. But, that's just me as I hate those 3 am calls on my cell for stupid BS that could wait until normal business hours. Especially if it's from someone that I don't even know.

    I would take your name off of bold letters to me it draws your attention away from the main part of the card. but you did a great job.

    the last revision is pretty good.
    I'd lose the "fall and spring cleanups". isn't that obvious if you do lawn care?

    remember, a business card has a function
    and it's not advertising.
    It's contact info.
    You've already sold people and the card is how they remember you and get a hold of you.
    do you have a fax number? or they just call the office.
    how do most people contact you?

    don't bother with the back, leave it blank.
    NOBODY looks at the back of a business card, it's a waste of money.

    get a real .com address.
    nobody uses .biz, and nobody remembers it.

    the same font should be used thruout your marketing.
    so whatever font you pick and for whatever reason, should be on your website, the business card, marketing materials, etc. When people see that font, you want them to think of your name.

    I think the "management" was a new addition as the other cards don't say that

    I think the last example looks good other than the miss-spelled word. The only other thing I would question is do you snow plow or do snow removal or both?
