Actually, i really like name cards, because it looks like luxurious and professional. when i was at a university, i hoped that i had name card after getting a good job. My country don`t use name card in common , unless you have a good position in your company like a Manager, A project Leader or a director. So my country`s name card almost include full name or english name , company` name, especially, it shows your position in your company, sometimes it shows your face if you are director. Im working and living at Japan , its very different from my country . Japan company use name cards in common ,I also have a name cards, its information include my name, company, address and my position.
