@rich-brooks I believe that less is more, especially if your website is the ultimate desired destination. If, assuming, there is only one chance to retain a visitor, I would prefer that task to be taken on by the website. From there if the visitor wishes to engage in the social fluff, they can do so.
I do, also believe in creating limited-run cards to suit a particular purpose, or audience. I once had limited-run business cards made out of wood veneer to use at a builder’s conference. They were a big hit, and left a memorial impression with some. I could envision a audience-specific card produced to be used at a conference for social media professionals.
Quick side note on my two cents here – I prefer translucent plastic as the material for my standard cards. I think they are clean and professional looking, however, I would not use this material for cards for a special event, like an industry conference. You can’t scribble a note on them, which I’ve found I’ve wanted to do, from time to time at events.
