Thanks everyone for the great feedback! We opted for larger elements and a foiled clip - hope you like it!

I chose D - The larger name and paper clip feels bolder to me but I also like that the paper clip doesn't have any shading effects like on B.

I think the plain border works well, the only thing I might change is either making the name slightly bigger or make the paper clip a tiny bit smaller.

I think the single border is fine. Have you tried a slight shadow on the paperclip? Might give it a little dimension? I think the font for the name is perfect.

I think it's a good balance as is.

Cute design, I really like it! But I agree with Charlotte - for me there's too much contrast between the size of the paperclip and the name.

I agree with the other comments as well. One thing I was curious about is the paper clip. It looks like it is resting on top instead of seeming to clip onto the page.

Thanks so much everyone for all the feedback! We are going to put together a poll to try out some of your suggestions. Carmelita, we know the paper clip appears to be resting on top, but we decided to do it that way because, frankly, the shape of a paper clip is not as interesting if it's realistically "clipped." But we totally had that discussion too! :)

I agree with some of the other commenters. A wee shadow on the paper clip ( not a deal breaker though) and I'd adjust the proportion of name and clip. Nice font choice on the name. Would like it to see it bigger.

Lol, I figured that! I was thinking that too after I had already commented! Can't wait to see the final result!
