Business cards, without the card!
02/06/2015



If you're a regular at networking events, you'll no doubt have a drawer full of business cards, most of them you've never looked at properly.

That's because in the digital age, the first way to get in contact with someone new is through the internet. It's faster, it's better organised, and it doesn't need a rolodex.

And yet, though for years the internet has been threatening to eradicate printing all together, newspapers and books have survived. The internet can't match the enjoyment of a physical object.

So what better way to emphasise the unmatched experience of an object in your hands than by mixing up the medium.

So, here's our favourite non-card-business-cards, which look like a joy keep hold of. Hopefully these will inspire a few of you to think outside the box before your next networking event!
