A comp card (sometimes also called a “composite card” or“sedcard“) is an important marketing and information document in the modeling industry that is used by modeling agencies. It is used to provide potential customers and clients with quick and clear information about a model. The compcard is usually a card in credit card format or a sheet of paper and usually contains the following elements:
Your best model photos
The compcard usually contains several photos of the model, often including a portrait and full-body shots. These photos are intended to give the customer a visual impression of the model’s appearance and charisma.
- Typically only your 6-8 best photos
Your body measurements
The compcard contains information on the model’s body measurements, such as height, weight, chest, waist and hip measurements. This information is important for the selection of clothing and the planning of shots.
- Body size
- Chest circumference
- Waist circumference
- Hip circumference
- Shoe size
- Eye color
- Hair color
Contact and agency logo
The compcard contains the contact details of the model and the associated agency, including telephone number and e-mail address. The compcard often bears the logo of the model agency to emphasize the professionalism and authenticity of the model.
Your compcard is an effective marketing tool as it provides customers and clients with important information about the model at a glance. It is often used at castings, go & sees and presentations to introduce the model to potential clients. Models must ensure that their compcards are always up-to-date and meaningful in order to increase their chances of getting bookings.
