I'm trying to make better business cards. Would it be good to include ive won an award. My old ones say close-up magic for all ages. I was thinking maybe making it Award-winning close-up magic for all ages. Would this be good? or would that make me look egotistical?

R123ex: I am not sure there is a site for magician's business card design, however there are many great books on business card, logo and stationary design that you can pick up in the art area of Borders or branes and noble. As a designer, I keep collectionsof these books and annuals so I can use them in my reference library. They show the best designs and give ideas on what others have done.

That is my card. I have the link at the bottom with the extra bit because I'm planning on doing an effect where I cause a spectator to forget a thought while the rest of the audience remembers it. I will be closing out my short walk around street sessions with that for a while trying to get some college parties. The web address isn't working yet, I plan on finishing that up tomorrow. But basicaly it will take the emotion they experienced during the finish of the effect, which I KNOW is quite strong, and then lead that emotion to be attatched to me. (NLP is fun guys, try it out) Thus inscreasing the chances of getting booked.

My card is simple and has my contact information on it, the website gives them more details on what I do and all that fun stuff. I have most of the website up and ready, I just have to throw a couple of finishing touches on it before it's released. Once I set that up, I'm off to the local colleges to do some magic.

P.S. this card will only be given out to people who have seen the effect mentioned above. I need to think about making other cards for just every day handouts.
Coming soon... Who knows!

I made mine in photoshop and printed them out. Once I start getting some business (I just moved to South Carolina) I will get some done professionally with that sexy raised ink.
Coming soon... Who knows!

What kind of designs are good for magician business cards. Mine are really lame, so I need better ones. However, I don't know what should and shouldn't be put on.

Many of you use a logo and may understand the importance of it as a weapon in your marketing tool box. But you may not know that the quality of your logo can mean the difference between success and failure of your magic marketing. It really can be that simple.

Logos make up the most recognizable and international language in all the world. Like magic, a good logo can be understood by most any culture or language no matter what country you live in. A good logo will communicate exactly what that company or product is all about and it will do this in a matter of seconds. We call this brand mark recognition.

Good quality logos do this easily because they can cross many barriers and provide your magical service with a means of delivering to your customers a uniform message every single time. But, your logo must be a lot more then just a pretty mark on a piece of paper. Having the logo look good is not enough if it does not help represent your services to your intended market.

Keep in mind that often times your logo is the first impression a client may get of you and the services you want to provide to them. With this in mind, your logo needs to show professionalism, quality and value. Your logo should try and meet the following criteria:

- Does your logo identify you and your services to your intended market? Does it show your market exactly what magical services you are providing and offering to them?

- Does your logo distinguish you from others with similar services within your marketplace? Does it help you stand out from the crowd and show professionalism and quality?

- Does your logo show to your customers the quality of service you provide to them?

- When people see your logo, can they tell you provide a quality product simply because your logo mark shows that same quality and thinking?

Remember that your logo is a big part of your overall image. If your logo does not do some of these things that I mentioned above, then it is only working against you and your overall marketing plan. As much as a good logo can help you, a bad logo can really hinder your progress. If your logo is a hindrance, then it is time to think about updating it and possibly seeking some professional help to do it.

Your logo design really is that important to your overall marketing. Your logo is really a part of the foundation of your marketing and acts as a way to consistently send out the same quality message to each of your customers. It tells them the quality of your services and separates you from a huge number of similar services your customer may be confronted with on a daily basis.

I hope this has been some help to you and gives you a simple look at how important your logo really is and gives you some guidelines for which to see if your own logo measures up to what it should be.

If anyone would like to see some samples of what I am referring to in this post, please just let me know. I would be happy to share a few PDF samples with you that shows how good logos can really work and points out the various tips I mentioned above. If you might be interested, simply send me an e-mail at magic4u02@aol.com. I would be happy to get it out to you in hopes that it might make some of my points a little more clear to you.
