“One Perfect Thing: The Business Card”

As I came across this article on printmag.com, the opening paragraph drew some true key points on todays technology. The writer basically touches on how everything that once was printed is now only being viewed digitally. Although technology has changed this in society, people will still meet in person and it is always good to have a business card on them to exchange. He says that business cards are “as personal as underwear”.“Some like 
to sport something stylish or unusual. Others are uneasy with anything other than something straightforward in plain white.

    A business card is something that could probably never go virtual–if it did, I’m not exactly sure how that would work out. I liked the comment about how a business card is as personal as underwear. This is so true, and I think it’s important to make your business card unique, and something that they can remember about you. Maybe stylish and crazy, but only crazy enough to get your information across clearly.

    I agree with you MGUINAND. A business card should be very personal and it should also represent who your are as a person and designer. Its almost like your resume. When people see your resume its your first time to actually showing them what you can do. A business card is a first impression. Therefore make sure the information is straight forward, but have the information represented in a unique way.
