NFC business cards aren’t new, but they never took off because they have always been credit-card like and who wants to carry a bunch of those around? Well a company called TapMyBiz is the first to offer a true high quality paper-like business card with an NFC chip embedded in it. It just so happened that I needed to order more business cards for CES so I figured I would give it a shot. I was shocked at how awesome the quality was. They will easily fit in a wallet and since I will need to carry a bunch of them to the show, I have no problem doing it since they are no thicker than your typical business card.
TapMyBiz will program each card to do whatever you want it to do when someone touches their NFC enabled phone or tablet to it. It can automatically add your contact information to their device, go to a website, open a video, head to a Facebook Page, or whatever you can think off. You can even set it to place a phone call or even a Skype call. If you ever want to reprogram any or all of your cards to do something else, you can easily do it with most of the NFC tag apps that are available in the Google Play Store.
You would think that a product like this would have a slow turnaround time, but they are able to produce and program your cards within 3 to 4 days. Ordering your card couldn’t be easier as their site offers free templates for designing your own. Of course, if you need any help, they offer 24/7 customer support. Right now they are a little limited in the style card, but come February, they will offer more sizes and different styles like rounded edges. That’s not all because by mid-year they will be offering greeting cards, flyers, and posters.
Check out my hands on video below to see how easy it works, and I am sure you will agree with me that it’s finally time to spice up your business cards with a little NFC.
