What can I put on my Capital One image card?

Not much, apparently. See restrictions at this link to the Capital One site.

To quote almost in their entirety:

We will not approve any images that contain the following:

  • Competitive marks/names (e.g. Discover®, American Express®, etc.)

  • Political Statements

  • Branded products (except those associated with a Capital One partner)

  • Copyrighted or trademarked material not owned by a Capital One partner

  • Celebrities/musicians/public figures/athletes/cartoons, etc. (except for those associated with
    approved Capital One partner

  • Phone numbers (e.g. 800 or 900 #s) and URL addresses (e.g.

  • Socially unacceptable groups (e.g. gangs, supremacy, etc.)

  • Provocative or sexual content

  • Violence

  • Profanity or obscenities

  • Any references to the Olympic Games or events

  • Any photo that might result in non-acceptance or other problems at the point of sale

Lee wants the international symbol for breastfeeding.
