As most of you know I have far too many irons in the fire where it comes to projects.

One of which is the custom file cards....well recently I started not liking the whacky color schemes I've done for cards such as the Night Force cards and so on.

Here like this...

It don't look too bad, but the letters come off as a bit fuzzy, and lord knows spelling errors are abound in many of my cards, plus I've had to edit some text out for it to fit properly.

Well not to recently I made a more DTC style card template, and am really loving it. Not to mention it is more in uniform with what file cards of the 80's looked like. There's something nice in a collection having file cards that are all uniform don't you think?

So I've been tinkering with the idea of redoing all my redone file cards in the new and better (in my opinion) DTC style, but it is a big undertaking, and I'm wondering if it's worth it?

Here's the new one of the same character...

That's where you come in....worth doing, or not worth doing.

I wouldn't redo them, persay, just perhaps tone down the color :smoke

I like the classic style better than the credit card look. But If you don't have the time, don't worry about changine them, I thought they were pretty cool to begin with.

Well I've pretty much decided to redo all the cards in the DTC style.

It gives me a chance to clean them up a bit artwise, and spelling wise. Two big issues with the cards.

Plus as I rewrite them on a word document, I'm keeping track of the little tidbits I throw in each card, like who's name is a reference to someone else, why this was done this way etc. Kind of interesting I guess....well likely only to me, but still.
