1. Keep your business cards clean and crease free by carrying them in a business card holder.
2. Present your business card with the print facing the recipient so she won’t need to turn the card around to read it.
3. Take the time to read a business card that has been presented to you, then carefully put it away in a respectful place.
4. Never give or request a business card from someone who out ranks you.
5.Don’t pass out your cards indiscriminately as this may make you look unprofessional and pushy.


CAUTION: Some cultures consider proper business card etiquette a vital part of the business relationship. The improper handling of a business card exchange may be seen as disrespectful.
