Hi Michael,
yes very nice card. Sorry to be a languagenihilitator again but people in Germany will not get what the "P" means, in German. It is a "T" as in telephone here, I guess some other regions might have similar limited understanding. Six decimals in the coordinates makes one's position really very precise... :-)

What does "Bainbridge Island,..."refer to? Is it the work place of the card holder or the official OSGeo postal address?

I would rather want to have an OSGeo email there (one that I can use as sender too, we had this discussion before), or is it intended to directly link to the company email?

On some beta test cards that I have used at various OSGeo booths I referenced an OSGeo project on the flip side (in my case Mapbender). Would it be possible to get this done with these cards too? Else I would suggest that you send a template to those who want to customize their card and they get it printed at their local places. This would additionally remove the nuisance of having to send stuff around (I had to pay extra $50 customs for a shitty cafe press order that took 9 weeks!). To make sure everything is correct the customized card should be sent in for approval. 

Best regards,
