What do business people look for in a good business card?

My answer to What do business people look for in a good business card? on Quora

I like to encourage writing on business cards—which means that the card shouldn’t be glossy (to ensure pens work on it). Our business cards, designed by my partner Natalie Downe, actually have a labelled “notes” area on one side of them.

I also like to include a photograph on the card, to acknowledge the fact that most people have trouble remembering which face goes with which name (especially if they pick up dozens of cards at a networking event).
