I use a lot of "business cars" just printed from my home printer to give people who are interested. Currently they just have an outline of a fighter realm name and web site. Simple.

But today I got the idea today for recruiting/info/business cards. lie this:

But customizable like this:

So that anyone in my realm can customize there own and hand them out. Not only would this be more fun for us, encouraging fighters to get cards and hand them out, but also feel a bit more personal and fun for the person receiving the card, hopefully prompting them to remember it and hang on to it.

What do you think? Yes the resolution is really low on these, 72dpi. Any one know what an average printer can do for dpi?

300 DPI is standard printing resolution.

Just a quick note on the format of the card...

Use "Fighting Since" instead of "Years Fighting." "Years Fighting" will be accurate when the card is printed and not much longer than that. "Fighting Since" will work perpetually.

This is a very creative idea! And if it doesn't prove to be effective for catching the interest of potentials, it'd still be fun to give to already-established warriors to hang onto. Needless to say, it's way cooler than pulling out cellphones and exchanging numbers, or worse, pulling out the ol' pen and paper while in garb. Nothin' like it to break the medieval mood.

Once I actually finish creating my bare-minimum garb, I'll probably make a card of my own, with your permission of course.
