    Of course I don't have my model S yet... Thanks to ToddRLockwood for the inspiration and some of the text. I wanted business card sized, and wanted a black MS (like mine will be), so ordered these myself from Vistaprint. They turned out really well IMHO. Blown up they look grainy but the cards themselves look very smooth and professional.

    I'm sure I'll still talk to people about the car, but if they take this home in their pocket...who knows. As a Tesla stockholder, I figure it's worth helping promote the brand. :)

    Excellent. If available I would love to get the PDF file to print some for myself. Although it looks easy enough to redo, too.

    Very nice. Would you mind sending your source design so I can translate in French for use in my province?

    The card looks great and I'd like to print a few of my own. After clicking the link I'm able to view the main page for your card but I can't use the design to print my own. When I tap on 'customize' nothing happens. Is the design locked where others can view it but not actually use it?

    Your HP/torque numbers are off?

    My only nitpick would be with the range... It's a bit disingenuous, especially when toward a n00b who won't know. Even the EPA range requires some careful driving. 300 though? Don't know that I could ever achieve that.

    It's what Tesla says, so... I could have added YMMV ;)

    I'm not sure, I'll see if I can figure it out so you can edit it...

    Carrerascott, those cards are fantastic. I can't seem to print them either, but it should be easy enough to replicate yours, using the same photos from the TM Model S page. These will come in handy!

    Thanks, just make sure you edit the #s a bit, seems I got them a bit off (I really wonder where I got those HP & Torque #s...).

    I don't know why VP won't let you customize it, sorry. Like you said I just used the pics from Tesla's website -- I've attached the ones I used (I faded out the pic on the backside)... you can obviously used any pics you want.

    To save typing here's the text from the back:

    Love the cards. Thanks for making them.

    Which design did you use? I tried doing the custom design and couldn't figure out how to arrange things the way you did.

    Thanks again CarerraScott, I took your framework and made an informational postcard, which I saved in PDF and was able to have printed at my local Fedex Office (formerly Kinkos) store. These will make nice handouts for the middle school "Build Your Own Battery Powered Car" race day I am attending today. Screen scrapes of the PDF are attached below, PM me for the source PDF file if you would like to modify or print the same cards. I made the back in greyscale as it was much cheaper that way.
