Anybody got any cool Business card ideas for Steel guitar. Logos, title, The singer for the Band I've been playing with for the last 7 yrs has throat cancer, Bands falling apart so I need to start looking for another band. Thought a card might help. What do you think? Thanks.

Dunno how good an idea it is to put your address on your business card.

The whole purpose of a business card is to make it as easy as possible for people to find you and get in touch with you, to do business. If it has no address on it, it's not a business card!

Not really 100% true. I never put my address on my cards because I don't have a brick and mortar store for people to visit. And I definitely don't want just anyone knowing where I live.

if you do not have "a store" or face-to-face retail dealings other than by screened appointments you should have a PO Box address. Cheap and easy, privacy and security. For example this now obsolete card...

I was always told that a home address is not a good idea. A general location, yes, but no specifics. I see the sense in not pinpointing which house contains thousands of dollars' worth of guitars and stuff.

In any case, it's been a long time since someone offered me a gig by letter! And even longer since someone came and knocked at my door to give me work.

Myself, I never put my adress on any band business card. honestly I was reluctant to tell anyone my last name. Hence Tennessee Lee. I felt If they know where I lived, and here I am on the job, goodbye stuff in my house. years of playing I never had to worry about getting robbed Just getting paid. Just saying,I wasn't paronoid,just cautious. Tenn.Lee

It's sad we have to think like that, Lee, but that's exactly how some crooks work. If they are low enough to burgle houses while the owners are at weddings and funerals, they would not hesitate at all to hit the house while you are out playing.

The Logo might be a familiar shape to those who read Musical Notation.




And here it is on an Instrument.
