    A friend of mine asked me to make some cards for personal use at a 6 week national training he and his crew with the Police Department are attending. I laughed and said... So you guys have trading cards. LOL Anyway here is the card I designed for him.

    The EOD Crab he supplied sucked. I created the one on the card because I thought it fit his personality a lot better. Keep in mind this is not a normal "business card" I really don't think the Bomb Squad is going to roll up and hand you a business card looking for future business. LOL Cause that would suck.

    The grunge worn out look was created in Photoshop using Alpha Channels and photocopier paper. I talk a little more about in on my website HERE.

    Some of the text is pixelated on purpose as Joey didn't want his cell phone and email posted.

    Anyway... Thought some one you might like the card. I had fun doing the card because I didn't have to worry about some of the standard marketing associated with a business card.
