Do you have a business card?

More than half of those who previously used business cards have now given them up since the start of the pandemic, according to a poll by Ipsos for City A.M.

The poll found that some 52% of those who carry around business cards have not given one out in over four years. And, two-thirds of current users felt it was very or fairly unlikely they would be using them in two years’ time.

The newspaper said fewer than 15% of those under the age of 34 have ever given out an 85mm by 55mm piece of card with their name and number on it.

And, while people are still exchanging their information, they are doing it in a more tech-savvy and sustainably-focused way.
