What's on your business card?

Those of you in small shops, where you wear many hats; or those of you that are self-employed... what do you use as your title?

I don't have my title on the card. Just my company name, my name and contact info.

Yep, it's a bit of a problem when you're everything from the tea-boy to the chief exec all rolled into one!

Mine has my name, contact details, website, and then wildlife photography and video in capitals.

And then there is a separate card for the other work I do, but with wildlife photography and video in small letters, just in case anyone is interested.

Here's mine, front and back.

There are three of us in the office, we each have a card with our own picture. Our cards don't give titles because we really don't have them.

I agree with Matt. Your contact info and company name are most important. The rest is to your discretion.

I just have "New Media Consultant" on there for now.

Current card design: http://danielhollister.com/cards.jpg

Printed with a gorgeous satin finish and rounded corners. Not cheap, but great look/feel.
