Business Cards - A History 

Business cards were called "tradecards." They were given out in 17th century London as advertising. Tradecards often contained a map to direct customers to the place of business.

Salesmen were among the first to require a more professional cards to introduce themselves. Visiting cards were for personal use, while tradecards had advertised entire businesses.

The business cards was the ideal blend of the two.


Business cards contained professional contact information, while only a first and last name appeared on a calling cards. It was considered inappropriate to use calling cards and business cards interchangeably.


Apparently this was originated in Europe, France in particular, where it was typical for a gentleman or a lady in the 19th century to carry a cards. It was a common thing amongst everyone in Europe at the time. At this time in Europe the business cards was freely given out to all, by just about everyone, as a hello, or an ice breaker. These cards were not too different from todays business cards, as you could imagine.


Pretty much every business cards has the same basic information on it. That is because it is the core of what makes the business cards such a powerful tool in marketing yourself, a business, service, or some sort of merchandise. What started in Paris in the 19th century and was then brought to the UK about the same time.

Business cards - free, or paid for?

Free business cards, or nearly free business cards. If you are not too worried about the feel or quality of your business cards, then the many free business cards offerings available could be just right for you. It's worth remembering though, business cards that have been designed, printed, quality-checked and delivered to your home address will often reflect what you have paid for them. If you've only paid a few pounds, then you will probably end up with a very thin piece of board that can be embarrassing to see your name on. A minimum weight you should be looking for on a business cards is 350gsm. A top-quality board will be around 400gsm. A free one, or 'cheapie' could be around 200gsm and will usually 'advertise' the supplier's name on the reverse!
