Hello Everybody. I am not a business woman. I never see a business card. That’s why I can not tell that what kind of information is written on the business cards in my country. But in my opinion business cards shows the information about the business man or business lady means their bio data and their employment status etc. Thank you.

It depends on whether it is for a company or for a professional. It should contain the name of the company or professional and then a brief description of the activities carried out. And finally, emails, number phones and a address. (Please correct me if I made a mistake)

Hello DarwinM,

Thanks for your comment. I'm afraid we aren't able to correct our users' texts. If you have a specific question about one particular word or phrase, please let us know, though.

All the best,
