Business Cards Emerge – In the late 19th Century the business card as we see it today began to emerge in the United States, where there was a clear distinction between the visiting card and the business card. Visiting cards were a social nicety, used by the elite and well to do. Business cards also had the name and details of the person handing them out, but were used by shops and businesses much more widely to promote themselves. Using a business card for social purposes was considered to be very bad manners, the implication being they were touting for work. So for the first time the distinctive business card made its appearance. As calling cards fell out of favour, the business card became the main means of passing your details to someone else. As business card printing has developed, so has the range of designs that can be included, but the basic principle is the same. It serves as a reminder of who you are, what you do, and how someone can get in touch with you, and in that respect seems very much here to stay.
Some people state that the need for business cards has now gone by and that in the electronic digital time, our own use of a card is passé. The reality is absolutely nothing could be further from the actual truth. Maintaining and sending out a calling card is going to remain a signature of stylishness, elegance and dependability. It of course demonstrates that company personnel are concerned about their career and about the people they are meeting. Acquiring a card is a clear sign that a personal communication is certainly not dead.
