First photo:
+ Bottom banner is good
- Versteeg doesn't play for Chicago anymore
- The font needs to be changed for the Name and Number
- Kind of plain in my opinion

Second photo:
- Double panthers is a no-go
- Font again

thanks for the opinion. like i said, it is my first time using photoshop and barely had a clue of what i was doing. whats wrong with the fonts? and i know versteeg isn't on the blackhawks anymore but i couldn't find a good large photo to put in there. do you have any idea of how to add more design to the first one?

These are good if you were just messing around, and didnt really know how to use it .


The font, and honestly, the whole design is kinda plain. I dont do Hockey at all, but look up some of the customs on this site. They all use a cool font

Not bad, would you mind if I took a crack at some designs? I'm just feeling photoshopish tonight.

This in my opinion is much better, very well done. Try a font that resembles the name on the backs of their jerseys. I'm pretty sure you can get Yearbook Solid for free, it works well and should do so nicely in this case!

Versteeg is a nasty player, try to use a font that resembles that, more bold, less serif on the font would look nice!

Since the card is a landscape card, I would use a photo of him during a game but not magic wand him out only, but keep the entire scene in. For the autograph spot, I would make a gray gradiant spot somewhere.

Good luck!

added the blackhawks logo behind him since thats the uni he's wearing in the picture. also changed the font. is that any better? i couldn't find that yearbook font but this looked kind of cool. let me know an opinion on the updated one. obviously jawa's is better but he has a lot more experience then i do. versteeg is one of my favorite players on the panthers so would like to get a very nice picture to get signed in gold
