A comp card (composite card) is the model’s business card. It contains the agency contact information, model’s name, photos, and stats. The usual size of a comp card is A5 or 5.5″ x 8.5″.

A comp card is usually double sided. On one side, it has the model’s name, stats, and headshot. The headshot should show the model’s features clearly. If the model’s face is covered, clients might assume that the agency is trying to cover a flaw.
