My Discover card and Chase United card have the numbers on the back and I'm not really a fan of that. It looks cheap. The numbers on my United card are raised a little, but they're not embossed. It's weird.
About the card designs, I'm sort of considering that as well (even though it sounds so stupid). I think the Citi Dividend card looks so much better than the DC card (which I want to convert to)
To me, while I'm quite used to having the embossed numbers on my cards my entire life, it does make more sense to just print them on there. By comparison, the embossed way seems old-fashioned to me, the more I think about it. The printed way just seems a lot cleaner.
With regards to pictures/designs on the cards themselves - I don't really care what they look like as long as their functional and it's not something stupid obvious that would draw attention like a hot-pink card. My only real beef is when two cards look nearly the same to where I have to look at the card to see if it's the one I really want to use.
