Default Do you consider this to be "centered?"

I have lost perspective after looking at so many cards over the years. Never thought that would be possible. Do you guys consider this to be a well centered card?

I would not call that "perfectly centered" or "dead nuts centering" or even "50/50 centering", but, yes, that is overall a "well centered" card (and I'm a centering snob, so to speak).

The one thing that helps is the T/B centering is just about perfect, while the L/R is 60/40 at worst.

Thanks, gents. I appreciate the feedback. After looking at so many, my eyes have started to cross. Agreed 100% it isn't perfect, but I was thinking it was in acceptable parameters.

As someone who focuses on centering, that is centered.

I'm an engineer, so no card has perfect centering. Our rulers are just not fine enough.

As far as that Clemente: Yes it is well centered and easy on the eyes.

Better than some but I would not consider it well centered due to left to right being off.

No, I would call that "decent" centering as L/R as just ok
