    Nice, and professional. Did you design it yourself? What software did you use?

    Do you guys have car signs or magnets or no? Do you use the same design as your cards?

    my suggestions

    1. Need a bullet between plowing and salting.
    2. Never hypen a word on a business card i.e. salt-ing
    3. Take free estimates out of the bulleted section and put it somewhere else.
    4. Use a different font, that looks like Times new roman, which is old and stale.
    5. Get some help with a logo design, there are cheap companies on the internet.
    6. Dont like how it says MSR on top, but says what MSR is on bottom, this should be in same area.

    Sorry, but I am just givin you my input, not tryin to knock you.

    Thanks for the tips, I appreciate it. The hyphen was on accident, it wasn't like that until I made it a pdf document. I'll play around with it some more and see what I come up with. Thanks.

    Is that you in the skid steer? If not, don't take someone elses pic for your business card.

    Pics are very hard to get right on a business card and expensive to print.

    Take out Lawn Care. If you do it, that's fine, but you main focus now seems to be snow. You want to make it sound/look like you are professional and make enough money doing snow that you don't have to work in the summer.

    Thanks for your help quadplower. I wasn't sure about the pic either, I just found it on john deere's website. And removing lawn care is a great idea also, never thought about that.
