There is no question if you have a business, about the need for business cards.  No matter where you go, or who you talk to, the need for a business card is a must.  But, good quality business cards are expensive!  If you are going to do them yourself, you need to make sure you buy the high quality paper printable cards and use a laser jet.  We learned the hard way about using ink jet!  One good storm, at a craft show, and your cards are done for!
