Cards that can turn into cool tools like bottle openers, blade, cheese graters and dental floss are also becoming popular.
Business cards have been used for any many centuries now and before being called by that name they were known as "Calling cards". Back in 17th century, the practice of exchanging these cards began to rise particularly in Europe. Woodcut and letterpress techniques were used back then to make the business cards. Initially, they were made in single colors until the discovery of lithographic printing in 19th century.
Today, varieties of materials are used to make them including plastics, metals, rubbers, magnets, poker chips and even real wood.
