Bringing Businesses to the 21st Century with Only Card

Think about the last time you were handed a business card. Did you log the contact information into your phone the second you had the chance? Or, did it make its way into your wallet, never to be seen again?

If it played out more like the second scenario, don’t worry — we’ve all been there.

According to Adobe, 88% of all business cards get thrown out in less than a week. For those that do make it past those first seven days, the number of sales generated generally only increases by about 2.5% for every 2,000 cards handed out. Ouch, right?

Only Card, the business card for the 21st century, has set out to change that.
