When do you need business cards?

There is and will always be a debate among entrepreneurs on when is the right time to purchase your business cards. There are some who believe that it is a waste of money and time because it does not directly add to their product or service. My opinion from experience is that if you plan on interacting with people at all (99% of entrepreneurs will be) then you must get your business cards early on. Business cards are very inexpensive online and very straightforward to purchase so there is no real excuse as to why anyone should not have them besides laziness. Your business card is what people will remember you by; it is a small representation of you when you are not there. It’s ok to try and cut back on silly spending and focus your resources on what’s best for the company, but there is a difference between being a savvy cost cutter and a cheap one.
