Creating a Comp Card

Model Portfolio

A model comp card, also known as a composite card or zed card, is a marketing tool used by models to showcase their portfolio and physical characteristics. Here are some steps to create a model comp card:

  1. Choose your best photos: A model comp card typically includes four to six photos that showcase different looks and styles. Choose high-quality images that highlight your best features and versatility as a model.
  2. Include your name and contact information: Make sure to include your name, modeling agency (if applicable), phone number, email address, and social media handles on your comp card.
  3. List your physical characteristics: Include your height, weight, hair color, eye color, and measurements. Be honest and accurate about your measurements, as clients will want to know your exact size and proportions.
  4. Add a brief bio: Include a short paragraph that highlights your experience, skills, and interests as a model. Keep it concise and professional.
  5. Design the layout: Use a professional design software or hire a designer to create the layout for your comp card. Choose a clean, simple design that highlights your photos and information in a visually appealing way.
  6. Print your comp cards: Once your design is complete, print your comp cards on high-quality cardstock. You can print them at home or use a professional printing service.
  7. Distribute your comp cards: Distribute your comp cards to modeling agencies, photographers, and clients who may be interested in working with you. You can also include them in your portfolio or bring them to casting calls and auditions.

Remember, your comp card is a representation of you as a model, so make sure it showcases your best qualities and accurately represents your physical characteristics and experience.
