Above the age of eighteen, a person is to use small cards to present himself or herself, officially, unofficially, as a representative of a business, organization, profession, government, or home.
Practice using business cards.  After your elevator introduction, be prepared to receive cards. When asked, “Do you have a card?” Be able to say,” Here is my card.” Expect one to be provided in kind. Have cards with you to give in kind: give a visiting card or a business card for the same.
At a minimum, have a business or organizational visiting card. It is to list your logo at the top left, and your first and last name, without your title, center (or just above center) the card. It can list your telephone number in the bottom right hand corner. It may list your email address in a smaller point size, above the telephone number. For more social events, the logo might then be omitted. It can list your major designation, or an allegiance logo or website at the top right. It may list it at the bottom right, above the telephone number. You can personalize any card you give using a fountain pen, or a pencil.
Practice using personal correspondence cards. There are old school rules for the design, format, and use of these cards, especially for men. They can be especially useful for Thank you notes.
