Hi all,

I had my latest item rejected because there are already too many of this kind.

Seeing that there is not a single one on graphic River which even remotely resembles my submission I must assume that it’s because it falls into the “basic business cards” category which is On the “not needed” list.

I have a few more nifty business cards which are basically cool ideas, even though the design itself may not be very elaborate.

I guess I better forget about those? Seeing the above, is it correct to assume that at GR there is no interest in smart ideas, only elaborate execution? if there is correct, then I immediately stop on my business card ideas and go back to designing print flyers … I just want to make sure not wasting my time on something that will never get accepted in any case…

Maybe it’s worth contacting staff, or support, or whoever you’re supposed to contact about a rejected item. I think it’s a cool design, and they may reconsider if you put across your feelings about it.

There are already submissions for a transparent business card templates.

But not too many, I would contact the staff and get them to double check their inventory.

And what about the nontransparent business cards? There are no many :D ?
