If you are attending the upcoming PASS SQLRally event, one thing you will want to bring with you is business cards. You’ll be meeting lots of interesting people and in order to better connect with them, you should have a supply of business cards with you at all times.
If you don’t have a business card, now is the time to get moving and have some made. Now, you’re probably saying to yourself “I already have my work business cards” . Yes, that’s true. You really should have a personal/professional business card in addition to your work card. Head on over to Vistaprint and you can get 250 printed up for free. All you have to pay is the shipping. They also have other options and deals if you don’t like the canned cards.
Another source that you may want to look at is MOO. MOO cards are very unique. They let you do more and better customizations. What’s even better is that you can upload your own picture or personal graphic and that will be printed on the back side of the card. I highly recommend MOO cards. Yes, they cost a lot more. But I think it’s worth it in terms of personal branding and impressions. Remember the old saying? You never get a second chance to make a good first impression. Go and order some business cards right now.
