Business Card Dos and Don’ts

Business Card

When creating business cards, be aware of these dos and don’ts:

Do use a white background, not colored. List a home number only if you have a phone line dedicated to business. Present the card at the end of a conversation, when both parties have an interest in staying in touch.

Don’t list an unbusinesslike E-mail address. Have a photo of yourself on the card, mention a degree, unless it is necessary for your specific field.

Helpful: Keep cards in a place that you can reach easily so you never have to search for them in a purse or pocket.
