The definition of a business card has loosened a bit compared to ten-fifteen years ago. Then, it was all about simple and informative in a very preset way. Usually the cards were plain black and white containing straigth forward contact info. Today it’s only your imagination that will set the limits with the possibility of using your own color-schemes, different layouts and shapes and more.
The card is meant to provide your contact information to all your different kinds of contacts, make people remember you and notice you. In a way it is almost like a mini-flyer that has your advertisement on it.
