Experts have been calling for the death of the business card for years. The growing number of Blackberry users (which was pre-iPhone and Android) foreshadows the end of the popular traditional business card. A. as more people start to use smartphones, more people will begin to replace paper in favour of the digit cards. Of course, reports of the disappearance of business cards have been exaggerated.

I have collected thousands of business cards of the people I’ve met in recent years and most of them end up on my desk in a huge pile until you go to a Conference and get a new batch of cards and pull the old ones in the Recycle Bin. Once you send an email or a call made to a new contact, it is rare that let’s go look at those cards again, so the truth what sense do?. A business card is a statement, a way to make an impression and be remembered, while for those whose activity is based on the visual design for some people, the fact of investing in a unique and memorable business card has its advantages.

Although the presentation paper personale card is alive and kicking, the phenomenal growth of the smart phone market allows virtual cards to be viable. Although you cannot have the visual or tactile impact of a business card well physically, designed to comfort offer virtual cards are generating some people want to change (or at least begin to depend less of paper cards).
