Their design tool has excellent control for customizing every design aspect or text element.  The rest of the design tool is fairly standard, with the ability to edit the text size, font, alignment, line height and case.  There is the option to add text, photo or patterns to the back of the card for an extra charge, or to leave it blank for free.
