I think a band of color might be nice. I like the minimalist text but I suspect your buyers may use a colored picture.

I agreed with Kendra, I think adding some color might be nice, but still keeping the minimalist feel of your design.

Hi Kandyce, adding color is totally up to you. But your 'HOLA' would look great if it was foil pressed. Also, a horizontal format might work better with this photo (plus Minted customers love to get the most out of their photos).

I love a minimal design, but this one seems a little too empty. I agree that a pop in of color or foil for Hola would be great. I think it might look good to align Hola with the left edge of the image and align the name and stats with the right edge of the image.

I agree with Cindy, I'd like to see color and align the Hola with the name.

This is adorable! I think it would look even better with a bit of color, maybe a colored border or background of some kind.

Yes. Or color your type.

Yes! Something subtle. You could also go bright if you'd like, since bold and soft colors go well with black and white.

Yes. Either add a color photo or color to your type.

I love the simplicity of the black and white but it could be really interesting with a pop of color in the name. I'd expanding the tracking a bit on the date and weight.
