What is a Comp Card? We’ll at one time it was a mandatory expense models had to cover; “update your comp card yearly” agents used to say. Comp cards used to be costly, something like $2.25 per print. By the time your agent was done sending them out, the model or actor would look different and have to get all new ones made up.
Now, in 2020 like most things, comp cards are now digital and are used for models and actors to showcase their headshots and stats in a clear, clean and simple form used to submit to casting agents to land castings call and auditions.
The benefit of digital comp cards is they can be edited in no time, making sure they are accurate and up-to-date can help you land that role or gig.
