    Metal Detecting Business Cards

    Hi, i am new to Metal Detecting. I bought a Whites Priszm II and have been practicing with
    it. Learning how to swing the coil and how to dig a proper plug.
    I would like to get some cards printed up to give to landowners. I would like the cards to have a Detecting theme. I would appreciate any suggestions as to content, icons, or layout
    for these cards. I am not very creative, so i really don't know where to start.
    If there is anyone that has their own cards,i would like to see them.

    Thanks

    Don

    Welcome to the forum Wazari! This is the card I use, created it using Broderbund Print Shop. You can purchase this program or one similar just about anywhere (Best Buy, Target, the evil Wal-Mart, etc.) Good luck. Kevin

    Thanks for the sample of your card. This should get me pointed in the right direction.

    Welcome to TreasureNet. We're glad you've joined us here.


    I can understand the convenience a card might provide. All the information a landowner might want is right on one little piece of paper...very convenient for you and the landowner. Certainly you want your name and phone number on the card. I'd include my PO Box, but not my street address just because I don't like getting robbed of my treasures (don't laugh, it happened to me). You might want to have a little saying on the card, too. Something about your philosophy about private property. Something like: I'll respect your property more than I respect my own." You get the idea. Or one or two of the pledges made in the Metal Detectorist's Code of Ethics -- the ones that apply to private property.

    As far as a design or logo, that might depend on what you like to hunt for. Are you into coins, relics, gold nuggets, jewelry, civil war, any speciality at all? Find out what you like, then the logo might be easier to determine.

    Next, you can practice designing your cards on any of the online websites that make business cards. You can find a website that let's you experiment with design and layout without requiring you to buy from them if you don't want to.

    Please be sure to look at the left side of this window...see my warning label? It says: I GIVE ADVICE -- take it or leave it. I give advice, it's up to you to ignore it or use some or all of it. Have fun and welcome to the great adventure known as metal detecting.

    Here is mine. I did it in MS Publisher. Used card stock for business cards I got from Staples.

    Where did you get the clip art of the detectors? Mine looks real cheezy.

    Thanks

    I took a Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine along to the Printer
    Left them decide what detector pic in it would look best.

    Re: Metal Detecting Business Cards

    I wrote one up for convenience...property owners, cops, etc. might see you as more "legitimate" when you hand it to them.

    Nice card TBGO. Earl I got the Minelab EXP II picture from the website. The picture saved as a JPG them I faded it with a Photo suite program. As long as I don't sell the picture I should be fine with using it.

    Nice cards guys. I've been thinking about creating one for myself. Hope you don't mind if I borrow a few ideas also.

    Thanks,

    Extremely good ideas!!! I'll have to make one up for cache hunting. I knew there was a reason I liked this forum best.
