New business cards

An interesting conversation with new people normally ends with me scribbling down one of my URLs on the back of a business card so I thought that it was about time that I got some new cards with the main URLs printed on it, and here it is.

It still has my email address and mobile number on it but there is no postal address, because nobody uses this.

Instead, it has the best websites for keeping in touch with me and with what I am doing. These websites are LinkedIn, Twitter and this blog (Ham Life). From here people can get to all my other web stuff easily.

The on-line service that I used had a wide selection of styles to choose from, let me add a photo and allowed me to tailor the colours and fonts, to produce a unique card that I am very pleased with.

I got 250 cards with a metal carrying case for £10, which is a very small price to pay for improving my network of contacts.


  1. Matthew, what a clever, modern idea. It seems absolutely appropriate and in tune with our age. Where did you get it?

  2. I guess there are several places that do this but I got mine via Vista Print having seen one of their adverts in an Amazon mailing, see http://www.vistaprint.co.uk/free-business-cards.aspx?xnav=TsrItem&xnav=TsrItem. The basic deal is good but they try hard to sell you lots of add-ons, like a gloss finish and matching fridge magnets!
