Business Card History

Modern business cards forebear, Visiting Cards, were created in China around fifteenth century. The Calling Cards (another name of Visiting Cards) were used by aristocrats. Their function was to announce the arrival of a visiting card owner to whomever he was visiting.

Although our world is big, it is still integrity, and everything within it is strongly interconnected. That is why it's hardly surprising that two century later visiting cards were adopted by the courts of England and France. Visiting cards became an essential part of etiquette of aristocrats and noble people of that time. It didn't take much time for Americans and the rest European countries to accept visiting cards as a part of etiquette, and terms of behavior connected to these cards were also base on English and French systems.

At that time handcraft was applicable to the process of creation of cards; they were produced in large number with printing presses, but before printing each card had to be created by hand. Instead of logos and emblems on modern business cards, visiting cards of that time were decorated with coats of arms that seemed masterpieces.

Aristocrats, however, were not the only class to have visiting cards. The visiting cards were considered essential accessory as early as in nineteenth century. No honorable gentleman or self respecting lady would go out without visiting cards. The common practice was to place a card holder in the front hallway so that everybody could see who was participating at the party and know with whom they could communicate.

In the beginning of seventeenth century, London gave birth to trade cards that further were developing simultaneously with visiting cards. At that age street addressing system did not really exist, so in addition to the information introducing a company trade cards have a map on them; the map was to show people the way to a company place. Meanwhile printing was becoming more and more advanced. Trade cards could be colored and better designed. They even happened to become the object for collecting. The hobby of collecting trade cards was getting increasingly popular and many companies started ordering cards with pictures, as baseball players, on one side, and contact information on the other side. It was the beginning of modern business cards design.

Trade cards

Originated in England in XII century

With the advent of trade cards at early XII century in London English merchants could advertise their goods and direct their customers to their shops just by placing a small map on trade cards. These maps were of great importance to both customers and merchants, because at that time no proper street numbering system was created. Speaking of that age it is necessary to mention that newspapers didn't gain recognition as advertising tool simply because they were undeveloped. People of that age had no electronic maps enabling to discover easily the location of the place they needed, so maps on trade cards were especially instrumental in this respect. 

From the technical point of view, printing of trade cards can be divided into several periods:      

 • In the beginning of XII century to print trade cards letterpress or woodcut method was used.

  Copperplate engraving replaced letterpress or woodcut method by the XIII century.

 • From around 1830 lithography allowing printing several-colored trade cards became the most popular method.

For almost two centuries trade cards were only done in monotones or sometimes with simple tints. In spite of the poor printing facilities, they still were in great demand. The trend to distribute trade cards was getting more and more topical as business grew.

The XIX century, however, was a different time, which determined the development of periodicals and newspapers. In the XIX century technological development made these media affordable and popular, which lead to the common recognition of newspapers' advertising. With the advent of the machinery that was so lavishly displayed and advertised trade cards became out of fashion and suffer decrease in the use, but they are considered to be ancestors of custom business cards and were spread throughout the England.

Peculiarities of cards in USA

In USA the difference between visiting cards and business cards was very distinguishable.

Visiting cards were associated with certain social level, and served to meet social obligations. They were also used as letters of introduction. The card tray in the hall of a house where a party took place was filled with visiting cards and enabled people to see who had called on. Hardly were visiting cards used among people of lower classes such as farmers or workers. That is why visiting cards in America had a flavor of affectation.
