Nope. Don't like it. Too plain / bland. It has kind of a 'quickly put together' look to it, like you just grabbed the sunburst design and typed on top of it.

Don't get me wrong, its not awful, but could benefit from better composition.

Suggestion for some inspiration:

How do they differ from your current business cards (you imply that these are specifically for potential business clients)?

I think the where the lines intersect in the corner gets a little busy. I would probably take out the horizontal lines.

I'm not sold on the back of the card. A lot of people stick my card on their computer or in a business card slot where you can't see the back of the card. My business clients know me as the computer guy, not the guy that can do this, or this, or that, and this too. And if it's not on the list, do you think they'll call you? Maybe, but maybe not.

My point is that if you just have good relationships with business clients and potential clients, you can drop the back of the card (which looks a little cluttered anyway) and still get their business.

Ok, should I put anything on the back, or just leave it blank??

Use it.

Very valuable advertising space.

Additional cost for double sided printing is negligible.
