If your business doesn’t have a website, it’s likely Facebook functions as a handy online HQ. It certainly provides useful access to consumers. If Facebook does form the majority of your online presence, you’ll want your business card to reflect this. You probably want it to serve as a call to action too. This social media business card deftly emulates a Facebook profile and includes a QR code to send recipients directly to your page.

Displaying its Instagram handle and email on one side and its offering on the other, two parts of the card detach to become collar stays. This card doesn’t say “Stay sharp. Stay Crisp” for the sake of it – it means it.
