If you aspire to be a talent of any sort, the first thing you need to invest is a comp card.  Do you know what a comp card is?

Example of a comp card from one of our Blivene’s talents.

A comp card (also called composite card, zed card, sed card, often misspelled set card) is a marketing tool for actors and especially models. They serve as their portfolio andbusiness card. 

A comp card typically contains a minimum of two pictures — cover page with full size portrait and a second page with a selection of representative shots from the portfolio — and the model’s basic stats — typically height, weight, three sizes (bust, waist, hips), shoe size, eye and hair color, nationality and contact information.

Comp cards have been around for many years as the essential marketing tool for a model and are likely to retain this standing because they are an inexpensive way to effectively and professionally showcase a model’s ability. Composite cards are used on three major levels—they are used by models, agents and the agent’s clients.

Currently, models have many different options of creating comp cards. They can ask their photographer, create their own on their computer using today’s selection of image editing or graphics software. 

If you have your comp card ready, you can send in to us to be featured on this blog and to be presented to our potential clients.
