Did you know . . .
Business cards have a long history that dates as far back as the 15th century in China. The card began as a “visiting card” or a calling card. It was a social convention that was bound by some very strict etiquette rules. The visiting card was introduced to Europe in the 17th century during the reign of Louis XIV; in the same century the practice began in English society.
At around the same time, the card moved from its social beginnings to a business purpose with the introduction of the trade card.
In the United States, the visiting card tradition caught on and became very popular. For a short period there was not much distinction between the business card and the visiting card. Gradually, the two types of cards began to separate. Rules of etiquette during this time began to make the idea of a card that stressed a business function unacceptable as a calling card. In fact, when a person left a business related card during a social visit to a home, it was seen as an attempt to collect a bill or debt.
As time has passed, the visiting card has gradually vanished, while the business card has gone on to become a business mainstay. Due to advanced technology today, mass production of cards is relatively inexpensive.
A business card is a must for anyone who deals with the public today, and for many it is one of the most important advertisings tools.
