Cardnetics Brings You Business Cards with a Twist


Analog cellular phones became WiFi-capable smartphones. Vinyl records became MP3 files. The abacus became a calculator, which later on evolved into the scientific calculator. But amidst all these changes, one thing that stayed the same was the business card.

Well, of course, there’s the electronic business card, but that’s not exactly something you can physically hand out to people as you meet them, right? But thanks to sites like Cardnetics, you can hand out interactive cards that will grab your prospective client’s attention (which is obviously something that you’d like to do.)

They work best though, if you’re a photographer or someone who’s offering similar services. That’s because the Iris Cards come in the shape/form/likeness of a camera with a mechanical iris that you can find in cameras. Move the lever up and down and the cardboard iris in the middle of the card opens and closes with your movements. Cool, huh?

You could also consider these business cards more of a novelty and only hand them out to high-paying (or sure) clients because they don’t come cheap, starting at $6 a pop.

You can have Cardnetics print out colored Iris cards for you or order a kit off the site and assemble the business cards yourself. Now that’s being literally hands on.
