I am looking to have these screen-printed and hand cut.
I am still pretty green in the realm of Design, and am trying to 'activate the negative space' as much as possible.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Hi Shawn, I like the design of the first side with your name, but I think there is a few issue for placing elements on the back side.
Having everything in upper case is kind of hard to my eyes too.
I hope this help
All very valid points.
I am struggling with horizontal centering the elements on the back side: I think the shape of the logo prevents the effect I was trying to be successful.
I am going to play with it more and see if I can't come up with something a little easier to read.

This is Bebas - it' a nice font in the right place. I think it's a bit hard on a business card, fonts that suit business cards are generally, helvetica, aller, etc…
Agreed, though I want to maintain an industrial-revolution era aesthetic. Will address this with take 2. Thanks.

I encourage you to read the following references:
Strive for readability. Good luck!
Michael, as always spot on.
I appreciate the useful referneces.
I tried again with a serifed font, and feel like it addressed the readability and kerning issues.
Also implemented a splash of color: I want to keep the tone muted, hance the dark red.
Thanks again for the feedback.

I like the last one.......
Not trying to call you out, but this isn't terribly useful feedback.
I'm not even sure which one you're referring to. Why does it work? Why is it superior to the other concepts?
sorry i'm a newbie...
The url is imphasized since the images above is small
and it is centered. It will encourage clients to read more about you.

The red definitely needs to go. Use pink or something light since you are dealing with a charcoal background.
