Merely possessing one is probably not good enough however. The actual way a person gives you their card is just as powerful as using one in the first place. The ways a man or women looks after and delivers their card is undoubtedly part of their over-all business interactions and supplying a card is the primary impression shown in quite a number of official business settings. Consequently, using a card holder is going to be every bit as important as using a business card.
Early Days – It all started in Europe in the 16th Century, probably in France, when gentlemen used playing cards to write notes on to each other, and such was the acceptance of playing card games as a gentlemanly pursuit that they were accepted as legally binding documents. The note could be an IOU for a debt, a promissory note for money or a business agreement, and were known as Bearer Cards in recognition of the fact that once the card was signed the bearer had a contract in his hand. In 17th Century France the cards then evolved into visiting cards, where they were used to pass general notes and act as general calling cards when gentlemen were out visiting friends and businesses. This evolved quickly in to a form of social etiquette for the gentry and well to do where, rather than just dropping in unannounced, a card was first presented by a servant to check when it would be convenient to actually call in person. The convention spread quickly throughout Europe and calling cards became firmly established as the way to introduce yourself and arrange meetings.
A business card case also assists a company executive to be readied for almost any circumstance. It is recommended to carry cards available at all times. One never can guess when business opportunity will knock. Having individual business cards inside a jacket pocket or bag can become inconvenient. A business card holder helps you to organize cards in just one convenient location and keep them secure inside of a shut case. The case might then be tucked in the shirt pocket, laptop bag or brief case and then be ready when a card is needed.
