The history of the business card
The use of Business Cards can be traced back to ancient China, but within Europe they seem to have originated in the 16th century. However, it became most common in Europe during the 17th century.
In the past, the business card was used on five different occasions. During visits, during courtship, for shorter messages, for identification of gifts or documents and marking of place or luggage.
The use of business cards occurred in the upper and middle classes in Western culture in the 20th century. At this time, the rules on how to hand over a business card were complicated. Gentlemen were allowed to send two business cards, one to the gentleman and one to the wife of the other family. Ladies, on the other hand, were only allowed to hand over to the wife of the other family. There was a golden rule that a married lady should never hand over her business card to a gentleman.
If you wanted to say something in person through a business card, you would fold the card in one of the corners. The corners of the business card would be folded in different ways depending on the meaning you wanted to convey.
The use of business cards as was done in the past is less common today. Nowadays, business cards are used by employees in companies and organizations.
A business card can be used in many other ways than the above, it is only the imagination that puts a stop.
The small size of the business card is perfect to use for both stamp cards and appointment cards.
If you run a restaurant or shop where you want to give your customers a gift or discount when they have shopped over a certain amount or a certain number of times, it is perfect to create a stamp card the size of a business card.
