I think it would be cool to look into the history of business cards and how we started using them today as a visual representation of ours.
The history of business cards
Did you know that the business card wasn’t first used for business? It sounds counter-intuitive, right? The business cards looked a lot like playing cards, thus the name. In the 1600s in Europe, people used “visiting cards” to announce someone’s arrival back home.
Those people were mostly wealthy or aristocratic. So they could afford to engrave them with gold and beautiful handwritten texts. By the 1800s they became indispensable to anyone who was in the middle class. Etiquette, as shown in “Pride and Prejudice”, demanded cards to be presented to each lady of the household on first visits. Delivered on card trays, the lady of the household would then examine it and see if she wanted to meet them. We could say that it created an exceptional first impression of the lucky guy.
The state of business cards in 2018
Plain white business cards with a name and phone number shouldn’t even exist. Today business owners and career-driven people try to stand out even through something as small as a business card. And what’s not to like about the beautiful and creative business cards? Needless to say, they come in plenty of different colors, designs, textures, etc., but the shape and size remained pretty much the same.
Therefore, designing an eye-catching, inviting and a unique business card may be challenging.
