Business cards are used by employees at large and small businesses to give out their contact details. They are used to network, sell and distribute information about a person and company. These small pieces of paper are usually considered a crucial part of marketing materials, along with letterhead, envelopes, catalogs and other promotional materials. Since business cards are so widely used, it is important to be innovative with how they are made and distributed in order to distinguish a small business from larger competitors. You must also remain vigilant about giving them out, and encourage all your employees to do so.
