Slideshow (Be patient as this has 20 slides to load.) 
Traditional business cards is printed on card stock with information about an individual or and company. Originally there were black text on a white background and images, embossing and colour have been added as pinting techniques and stylistic fashions have changed. Prior to the ability to print portraits on cards photographs were attached but this was relatively rare.
