new business card

I thoroughly enjoy getting back into graphic design, after spending a couple of decades, and a couple of careers in it.  My existing business cards are ok - with one minor except - you almost need a magnifying glass to read the phone and email address!  My old versions of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and Macromedia Freehand don't work on my new Macs.  In checking the prices of a current bundle that includes Illustrator and Photoshop - I was shocked.  $1800!  That still would be a good investment for this really great software if I was using it in a graphic design business daily.  But, just for my internal marketing purposes, at this stage of the business - it doesn't compute.  So, to get by for a month I downloaded a 30 day trial of Illustrator.  Purchased a surprisingly powerful Photoshop Elements for $62, and have downloaded a trial version of what looks like a very nice, quite powerful photoshop new competitor - Pixelmator.    Gosh, technology does change if you drop out of the loop for a decade or so!  -  Oh,  let me know what you think about the new biz card.
