Default My Custom Cards

I like Pumphrey. Not on Hillman's level yet, but I like him!

Yeah, he's a great back but not good enough to be drafted in the 3rd round like Hillman. He's having some great success right now with the Broncos.

With you recent customs (black border with the two separate pictures), may I suggest adding a subtle border around the boxes just to add some more detail?

Very nice looking either way!

Since the border is already saved, it would take some time to add a border but I will consider it for sure.

Those look great, but I'd definitely find a way to upgrade the fonts you're using. A lot of them remind me of something you'd find on an angelfire site, very old school in a not so good way.

Great photos, especially on the calhoun.

Thanks, I'll look for better fonts because I realize that some aren't the greatest.

Things I would change are the font as other pointed out, and work on the spacing and kerning of the letters. Maybe Word/LibreOffice can handle this but I've seen this best handled in Indesign.

Also, the colors cause the letters to vibrate which brings attention to jags on the letters. Maybe softening the background color or changing the font will help.

Thanks for the help, and yes they are 4x6. If anyone would like one, I can make it.

Also, is there a certain font that you would think would look the best on the card?
