Despite the meteoric rise of social media as the communication medium of the masses the tradition of exchanging business cards is alive, well and thriving. While social connections occur over the air with a swipe or a click business connections still rely on the ritual of a handshake and exchange of business cards.
The tradition of sharing cards dates back as far as the French court when name cards we exchanged between the courtiers at gatherings. Calling cards were soon adopted by the newly rich business and entrepreneur classed during the industrial revolution paving the way for the modern business cards still in use today.
In this video blog Mike Wilson the co-founder of Clubcard Printing discusses the basics of business card design from what information to include on your cards and offers tips on printing your cards, including how to choose a card stock, ink colours and finishes.
