The importance of business cards
Business cards are incredibly important for any form of person-to-person networking, and no matter who you are or where you are, a physical card can take the place of a boring, non-personal Facebook or LinkedIn profile, find out more

This post is an outline of how I've created this project, so you can skip straight to creating your own physical card.
This project is not about creating a new physical card, but rather a new way of communicating with people. What's the difference between using the same format for social media and a physical card?
Let's start by explaining what an email is. An email is a way of communicating information, with the sender agreeing to receive updates from you via email. When I get a question about your project I like to use an email, as it's less intimidating. However, I also have a bunch of business cards that I could send through email, and since they're just text (which is kind of lame) I've decided to write up a quick blog post on how to create a deck of business cards.
The reason why I'm going to do this now is because you need to understand the process before you can go through with it. If you can, feel free to follow along. If not, then read on!
Now that you know what an email is, and you understand the basic ideas behind business cards, you'll see why I'm going to start with business cards. After you learn how to create business cards (even a quick tutorial on how to create business cards can save you a lot of time!)
The cost will be very important. When setting prices, make sure you don't just be in it for the sake of selling your card, but are willing to pay for it and want it to come out of your pocket. If you're just in it for the money, then you'll have your cards as soon as they come out. 2. Finding a business contact. After you have created your business cards, the next thing you need to do is find a contact to send them out to. This is usually your ideal contact, because they can help you determine exactly what they want out of your business cards. If you are sending out cards to yourself, then you will probably want to reach out to some friends and family. Otherwise, your ideal contact is a close family member, friend, colleague or other relevant business person. 3. Planning your card. You need to know your business cards, what they will contain, and who is going to receive them. If you have a general idea of how you're going to do the card, that should do you fine. Just make sure the information you send out is perfect. The best option is to print off a copy of your business card so that it's easy to go back to in case of a question. 4. Ordering cards. Now you're ready to send out cards. If you have a regular business card printer on hand, then it's likely a great idea to purchase some cards.
