    Hi madunix.

    To my humble opinion, too much information for a business card.

    Why is the capitalization inconsistent? Why are these words in all capitals anyway? It makes it difficult to read.

    Without knowing more about your particular business, I would lay the card out this way -

    Note that it's a "business card" (two words), not "businesscard" as you wrote in your title.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Good point- writing in capitals is not helpful.
