Dating all the way back to the early 18th century in Europe, business cards began as “Calling Cards” or “Visiting Cards” and were designed to announce who was visiting and often explained a brief description about why they were visiting.
These cards and the status that went with them, made their way to North America and today we still use a Calling Card or more appropriately now called a business card.
As printing presses and off-line processes have become more sophisticated and available, the simple calling card has become a masterpiece, showcasing the company that purchased them.
Convenience and portability of Business Cards solidify their importance for business and personal use. Your business cards should represent you, your company, and the brand you stand for. Whether they’re the first thing you hand out, or the last thing before you leave, your business card is an extension of you for people to remember long after you’ve met.
