What's on the back side of the cards? White? I'll be buying one soon, but I'm just curious.

Yes, the back side is blank white.

I just wanted to mention that the space around the QR code (called the quiet zone) is quite important to help readers.

I noticed with Casascius's Therilith's design that he has put a quiet zone of 1x the pixel element.
If you have a read of http://www.documentmedia.com/Media/PublicationsArticles/QuietZone.pdf it states that for QR codes it is actually 4x the pixel width.  I recall that that is what the Denso Wave spec says too.

4x is a bit large I must admit - for the QR code element of MultiBit swatches I went for 2x the pixel width.  
Admittedly they don't look quite as nice as 1x but I think (subjectively) the recognition is a bit better.

Discussing that with the owner atm, might update it soon.

Just so you all know... StrikeSapphire offers two free cards made by Brad with any deposit of $100 $50 or more, one with the standard design and your QR-code, and another with our design and the code for your Sapphire wallet -- because you never know when you'll want to get paid directly to your casino account  Grin

This might be a good way to address the recurring payment issue. I might order some of these for loyal BitBrew customers, each with their personal BitBrew payment address for orders that happen on a regular basis. That way, when I see a deposit made to Customer A's designated address, I know to start processing their pre-arranged purchase - sort of like digitally saying, "I'll have my usual."

Still around.

I want to thank everyone who's placed an order or submitted a design.  If you're thinking about contributing a design, here are a few common issues that seem to be coming up a lot:

* I can't do full bleeds.  That means your card image can't go quite to the edge of the card.  I recommend leaving a 20px buffer, which is built into the sample templates.  If you do try going all the way to the edge, when it prints, there will be a little sliver of white space along each side.  However, the white space isn't quite the same on all sides and it doesn't mesh too well with the curved corners.  Overall, I may be making the bleeds into a bigger deal than it needs to be, but I just want to make sure that each card looks as good as possible when it prints.

* I can't use any copyright protected content.  That includes screen captures from movies, video games, sports logos, etc.  If you own the art or you have written permission from the creator to use it for commercial purposes, that's fine.  Otherwise, assume it can't be used.

* I want to be as accepting as possible, and I know it can be frustrating if you put a lot of work into something I can't use, but I do need to reserve a subjective level of editorial discretion too.  This product still needs to convey a professional rated-G feeling.  I've had to reject a few really creepy designs like a stack of dead bodies, skulls, horrific images of war and things of that nature.  Sorry.

(None of the above applies if you just want a custom card for yourself.  I'll print whatever you want if it's just for you.)

As for the QR code thing, I'm using a 1x quiet area on my basic designs and they seem to scan fine.  I suppose going a little larger wouldn't hurt though.

I would keep it how it is. Been scanning fine for me. I'm not an expert on qr codes, though, lol. Smiley

My design that I submitted last week. (couldn't post because of the newbie restriction):

This is just an example and not the exact same as the one on the website.
The QR code is a different size. The font is different aswell. But the rest is the same.

That's really clean, and my favorite so far.

As posted in another thread:

This guy accepts designs, and gives a portion of the profit to the designer. Submit the designs, and I will buy some. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=46933.0

I can submit my design from here.

Is there anything else that needs to be done?
