Well, that should get M.C.'s attention. Lisa makes my cards but I wouldn't know how to get the logo on it myself.

great prize.
Run when you have to, fight when you must and rest when you can.

I hope I'm never in a survival situation; I may just like it's simplicity and decide to stay there.

um.... let see.... your the owner....... your the one asking for a quote """"business card""" unquote... so i'm going to take a big wild stab at it  and say it would be your phone number.

and you don't put a mission statement on a buisness card thats the whole point so people will go to the the website and see what it is.  also mine said "wildsurvive survival forum" but now that i think of it should have put "outdoor adventure forum" that it's kind of big to put on there.

if your looking for something that has more informantion on it about the site. that would be an AD.


but your looking for a card to give to your friends or to people you meet like your shirt guy. so they can contact you or what ever right?

ok that brings me to my point... my dad is 50 and the only thing he would be able to read is WILDSURVIVE.COM.   

also another point... once you give that to someone they probably won't remember who you are and it doesn't say that on the card... and what if they want to contact you?

they have to create an account and wait a few hours for us to approve them just so they can talk to ya.

King,
    Nice design but the Federal Govt would come down on swede worse than a ton of bricks for using there sign and logo.

Take the one swede posted and try a different pic on it with lettering that would stand out. You have the talent to do this. Maybe JJ's colors

the funny thing about that is that is the government can't do anything. then again why would they. it wouldn't be worth there time.

and i was thinking about changing the US to WS.. for wildsurvive.

i also had another idea with a map that had wildsurvive as a location  (like a city) and make it look old  and burned edges.

or something like this
