I would display the website as www.yourdomain.co.uk, and have info@ instead of hello for your email address, also where you have Console Repairs you could put instead Games Console Repairs.

Haktar did you say in another thread that you were based in the UK. If so I would be very careful with your name as it is almost identical to Novatech, who are a large computer retailer in this country. Last thing we want is for you to get a knock at the door or have to change the companies name after you have got yourself established.

But otherwise the cards look good, I really like the design they are very much web styled...they fit in with your site perfectly. I think half of being in business is to build a brand that even if customers don't remember the name they remember the logo/motifs used.

p.s. This might sound daft but I have never thought of making "free local pickup" a major marketing point (although I do it), thanks to you I am going to push it as I think it is a really good sell!

Good point edgepcs, I was thinking the same, There is already a novatek out there, not in computer repairs and some customers could search for you and just use one K instead of 2 kk's, I would prob change the name.

I see you have registered as a limited company, I would of stayed as a sole trader for a bit to see how business go's, you now have to pay extra taxes and accounting fees.

They look great. I also checked out your website. Very nice. The only thing I can think of is the text on the back might be a little hard to read once its down to size.
