Ms. M...lol...it's hard to imagine you not having a business card, but it happens... I always THINK that I have a few more in a box somewhere. The worst thing is when I can never find them in my pocketbook when I need them, I go digging around and finally find one that looks like it's been in my pocketbook for years... I think if the business can afford it, the more professional the better - again, if it's affordable.
Business cards may have lost a bit of momentum with the onset of online technology, but they are still a good way of networking and will continue to be for quite some time. It's really all in the presentation and the creativity and personality that you put into your cards. You don't need a fancy gadget to be marketable.
iloveprint, Great point!! Face to face social networking isn't "dead" yet and I now find myself going to more and more events with nothing to hand out to people who want my contact information except for my work business card. I really don't want them contacting me freely at work. I still need to get cards other then my work cards.
Connie, Did you ever get your business cards for the Sandwiches site? I would be interested in hearing what you ended up with.
I do not think so. I hate that almost everything now is done by a smart phone. I am one of the rare people who have a simple cell phone and who still like things that are considered outdated like business cards. If one day I do have a business making my cards will be fun and exciting for me.
