Business Cards - General Tips For a Business Person
By Deshea R Witcher
      

     
Your business card speaks for yourself. You got to make sure they are vivid and unique. And when you're trying to make your card unique, you got to make sure it doesn't end up being ridiculous. Here are some basic insights that might help you make your cards standard and effective.
 
This article actually discusses different aspects of a business card that might have some meaning to business people. For instance, these cards have different implications in different regions around the world. Though there's no such thing as 'international company card' you need to know a few factors that relate to the business card culture in different parts of the world.
 
As for one instance, in Japan, they call a business card a meishi. One can exchange it with great rite. The appropriate way to offer and accept cards is by using both hands. To illustrate, when you receive, you got to use both your hands. This needs to be followed by your humble bow. You have to also express your gratitude to anyone offering you with the opportunity to meet them. And you can't put the card away right away since it would seem rude.
 
In Japan it's frowned upon if you write on a card or put a card in the pocket/wallet. These moves are viewed to be disrespectful. The Japanese culture calls for keeping the card into a card holder. Since the Japanese value the business card so highly, the highest quality cardstock is usually used.
 
That was just an example of how the culture of business card varies around the world. Even if you do not have to print separate cards for dealing with people who belong to separate cultures, know a few things about the culture of the country or region you are about to exchange cards with, helps you settle trust and communications beforehand.

General Etiquette Tips
 
- When you travel beyond the border of your country, it's a good idea to take cards that have includes the translation of the contents of your original card in an appropriate language.
 
- When you are within the border of another nation, try to hand your business card by keeping the applicable language facing upwards - so the receiver gets to glance at it immediately.
 
- Company cards usually are exchanged when a meeting begins.
 
- You have to make your point for studying the card handed to you. It's usually a sign of good etiquette to comment positively on it and placing your queries on it instantly, if any.
 
- And it's wise to have sufficient amounts of cards with you, since you never know when you will need too many of them. Or at least, you do not want to run out of your business card supply.
  
When in Rome, do as the Romans do! This notion is not 100% applicable when it comes to a card, though. Still, you should make sure that your business card becomes a mean of communication and relationship - not an embarrassing misunderstanding.
