The point in handing out business cards is to get people to get back to you. Hopefully, you made a good enough first impression to the person you handed it out to. But in case you didn’t, then you can let your card do the work for you. All it takes is a little ingenuity, a higher-than-usual budget for cards, and some skills–much like the ones Jay Kickliter has when he came up with his DIY electronic business cards that light when it’s touched.
Jay created the calling cards for a job fair and used a capacitive touch printed circuit board to build the whole thing. It’s a creative way to show off your skills if your line of work is connected to electronics. Jay is happy to teach anyone interested in making their own cards and has published instructions on how to do it on his site.
