    Hey everybody!

    I wanted to start a discussion about the ideal business card. A business card is often the first impression that a new acquaintance will have of your company. A plain, generic business card will generally not leave a great first impression. However, a sturdy, professional card will enforce the impression that you are a successful individual. Therefore, professionals need to view their business cards as a representation of themselves, since that is exactly how they appear to others.

    Now, I want each of you to describe briefly how they view the ideal business card. You can post pictures if you wish, or you can post your own business card (thus having a little bit of advertisement ;p )

    This way I hope we can generate some interesting ideas on how a really good, professional business card should look. And then we can apply those ideas to improve our own b. card.

    So, go on! Who's gonna be first?

    I'm happy with the one my company prints for me.... and if you must have these business cards make sure you at least have a proper holder/case for them and learn how to properly hand it out.... so damn many these days have no clue how to give out their card without sounding like a dork.
