Hey guys, need your opinion...
This is a discussion on Hey guys, need your opinion... within the General Prepper and Survival Talk forums, part of the Survivalist, Prepper, Bushcrafter, Forest Rangers category; Hey guys, need your thoughts on something real quick. Getting business cards printed up tomorrow and I have a few ideas for the background image ...
Just my opinion but I prefer the secondand third pictures for background. The landscpe and tent will be ok with 90% of your customers - pleasing comfortable yet outdorsey. The on site shelter of evergreens will be slightly less acceptable to some because it is made of "living trees" but it will still appeal to a good 80% of those out there. The military pictures and gun pictures will only appeal to those who find a connection to military and paramilitary lifestyles and those that have enough "common" sense to realize that repurposing military gear does not mean you are going to war.
The #2 picture with landscape and tent is also easier to print over - making your cards easier to read.
Here's my vote.
i think the 4th and 7th would be the best choice considering your name, and what you intend to sell.
I like #4 but all of them would be great.
I agree with Paraquack

The other pictures with the grunts in daylight were too "busy." And the other sihouete photo does not convey (to me) the essence of The Brotherhood like #4.
The generic camping ones would be fine if you were Billy Bob's Outdoor Camping Supply, and the one of the rifle is too limiting since only a little over half of your stock is gun related.
Just my opinion, which is neither more nor less valid than any other.

Maybe this will help a little. Click o n the image and it should blow up to near normal size.

It is less what you sell and more who you want to reach. I would agree on the soldier background if you were trying to serve only the militant crowd but you want to appeal to the largest group of those who are prepping - that will be your "daily bread".
I have been in sales for almost 40 years, I think the first picture is the best.
I don't mind you using pictures of our armed forces to promote your company but realistically very few people can relate to that, what is the % of people that have actually served?
If you are going for active or previously active duty soldiers, the use the desert storm pictures, but for the rest of the arm chair generals, do #1 so they can relate to your logo.
