I had calling cards at one time. Think I may print some out. I go to TOPS for weight loss. It would be a good way to get the info out.

Plenty of food and love , but the commute would be a pain. Wild caught trout Wednesday.

I don't get it. does it count if your employer gave them to you? Well, that's my situation and I said yes. I hope that's right.

I use it for insurance sales to be professional.. Rarely do people call back please quote me, so I give one out and at the same time write your contact info to call you!

Let me clarify, I have little "customer" interaction and the brokers I deal with are in different cities. They have my e-business card. I'm not anti business cards, just haven't needed to give many out

huffy when I turn them down on things like making a matching hat and scarf set out of merino/cashmere for $5 or insist that I HAVE to make them a full sized afghan then get insulted when I ask how much they'd be willing to pay.

And I doubt you've ever set foot in a bar much less had someone request your phone number while in a bar.

I was so inundated with custom orders from them that I didn't get the annual hats and mittens done for all the kids in my own family until last week.
Plus, now that family members can actually go online and see what I and others that make similar things charge for them, they're no longer getting…

For a few smaller items like booties & baby leggings it can take me longer to get half-way decent pictures than it does to actually make the item.
One major plus, though, is that now that my neighbors and my kid's friend's parents know what I do they beg me for business cards. Just before Christmas…

It's not nearly as easy to do as I initially thought (selling I mean). I expected photographing the items and typing up the shop description to take maybe 5-10minutes per item max. Instead I can spend hours trying to get the pictures & description for just one item right.

Instead of mocking your company for giving you business cards you should take a little more pride in your work and hand out more business cards.

I've printed over 25 million flyers and business cards. For big runs a local printer is best. For print runs 100,000 or less gotprint.com is the best. I've tried them all. Gotprint has great service and they'll actually help you. If you're extremely good at graphic design you can try vistaprint

I could see these maybe being passed out to parents of students at parent/teacher conferences, or even continuing education courses.

Obviously a narrow minded view of what business cards can be used for. Business being one. I don't want to have to verbally exchange my phone and email with every client who comes to the office, nor do they need my Facebook or cell info. Business cards are highly practical.

As a college student I own business cards. Even though I don't own a business it has my name and number. It takes it easier to give out my number when I'm at a bar or when I am in a group project for school.

So...does anyone actually rent your house after you give them a card saying you're an eviction specialist?

Yeah. What happens at a business meeting and there are like 10 new people? That's where the business cards become nice.

Oh, for chrissake, obviously different people get different levels of information. For instance, if I'm dealing with someone older, they get a business card. If its someone younger that I've met at a social networking event, Facebook usually.

So, like a business card sized resume/CV? That actually sounds like a really good idea.

When my girls were young and I was a stay at home mom I had some printed out because it was easier to plan play dates if I could just hand over a card with all our info. Before that I was Director of Operations at Internet Service Provider so I had cards there. Now I am a teacher aide no cards now.

We do not have kids. We have a rental home.. The cards say that I am an eviction specialist, I give them to prospective tenants in our rental home.

I'm a Doula, so I always have cards on me. And I am the "manager" of my husbands side IT business. I'm also an intactvist, so I have those cards on me too.

I come in contact with so many people who may need to contact me on a regular basis. It's just easier to hand them a business card with my name and the station number on it instead of writing everything down constantly.

Often it's easier to exchange those email addresses, Facebook, twitter and phone numbers when they're all already printed on a little card for you. ;)
