What is a Composite Card?

February 18, 2012 |

As explained on Wikipedia (click here to read full article at wikipedia.org):

“A comp card (also called composite card, z card or sed card) is a marketing tool for actors and especially models. They serve as the latest and best of a model’s portfolio and are used as a business card.

A comp card typically contains a minimum of two pictures — cover page with full size portrait and a second page with a broad selection of representative shots from the portfolio — and the model’s basic stats — typically height, weight, three sizes for women (bust, waist, hips) and for men (suit or chest, waist, inseam), shoe size, eye and hair color, nationality and contact information — printed on both sides of an 8.5″ x 5.5″ piece of card stock (12 pt stock) (US) or A5 on card weight (350/400gm2 stock in metric countries) which is between 300 and 450 microns thick depending on the card stock or quality chosen (Europe, Asia).”
