Chiropractor James Von Hipple was visiting my chiropractic office in Los Angeles recently and he left this business card by the front desk. I had not seen it at first, we like keeping a collection of cards for other chiropractors practicing in Southern California (actually we like keeping cards for pretty much anywhere chiropractors are practicing) so that we can refer to other doctors when people are moving, traveling, or have requests for chiropractors to take care of their friends and family.

I thought the card looked like it belonged to a race car driver, but then as I looked at it closer, I started thinking it more reminded me of those safety crash testing colors used when preparing automobiles for mock car accidents and such. Thought I had a card similar to that already posted here on the blog but I failed to locate it.

It’s not common that you see a chiropractor’s business card in black and I think it’s pretty cool. The combination of yellow red and black (venom lack ha ha) is a nice mix that gets one’s attention. Sorry the pictures aren’t the greatest, my regular camera is being temperamental so I shot these two pics with my iPhone.

Front of the card reads Murrieta Advanced Chiropractic – Dr. James P. Von Hipple, Doctor of Chiropractic. I don’t think I ever use my middle initial on business cards but I’ve seen quite a few other chiropractors that have. I’m taking a look through some cards from the past to see if that’s a common practice.

There are so many chiropractors that are creative with their card designs, I’m impressed with the desire for DCs to express themselves with a unique look, I’m not a big fan of the plain white and black professional looking business cards ( although I think it’s a good idea to have a set of those as well) so when I see colors or something I haven’t seen before, like sharing it.

I am to blame for the quality of the photo, sorry I didn’t get a better shot of the back of this card. This one got me searching through business cards I’ve posted in the past, and I’m reminded that next week I’ll be at 2010 DCS in Orange County, where I will undoubtedly collect several dozen cards from chiropractors visiting from throughout the United States. I hope if you see me you’ll have a card to share.

I like these cards I got at a DCS event in 2008, the Six Card Monday card I got from Colorado, the chiropractic gold cards, and Dr. Laurie Mestdagh’s Red White and Blue Free Exam Cards.
