Little cards for the tour

Iím just curious, have anyone of you used printed cards with your address and stuff for the tour? Like a business card but with the basics of your tour instead. Itís an easy way to swap addresses (especially URLs) with other travellers, so I just printed my own at work after everyone else had left.

Never tried it, but it sounds like a good idea.

Great idea. I'm riding across Australia next year. I'll have to give it a try.

Sounds like a great idea. For those of you looking for a bit nicer look, of course you can buy perforated business card sheets which can be used for printing nice, professional style business cards with your home computer and printer.

Microsoft Publisher helps you create some nice business cards. You can get these blanks wherever computer paper is sold such as Office Max, Office Depot, or even K-mart and Wal-Mart.

swekarl -

A way great idea. I have made my own business cards since I am currently not working - but I never thought to bring them with me on the centuries I will be doing - a cool way to keep in contact.

Thanks. :cool:
