I think there is a future for business cards. Cards with more and more technology.

A cheaper solution is to include a mobile phone readable 2D barcode on your card that allows people to scan in your data quickly and precisely.
Finally a reprogrammable, highly expensive card that is great if your target is old people with poor eyesight. It let’s people read the data in huge letters upon pressing the four buttons.
Hard to tell what the business card of the future will be, but we can take Mr Hugh MacLeod’s advice who wrote on the back of a business card, as he usually does: “The future belongs to the artists and the Chinese.” So, if you’re not Chinese you better become the best artist you can be. Hopefully, this post will inspire you to come up with a lot of cool new ideas that you will post for us to see here in the design critique section.
