Welcome to Design.com, your go-to destination for creating personalized business cards that make a lasting impression. In this section, we delve into the fascinating history of business cards, tracing their origins back to ancient times.

Business cards have a rich history, dating back to 15th-century China, where they were known as "visiting cards." These cards were used to announce one's arrival at a home or to request a meeting with an esteemed individual. Over time, visiting cards evolved into a means of self-promotion and networking.

In the 17th century, European aristocrats adopted the use of calling cards, which were presented to hosts upon arrival. These cards became a symbol of social status and etiquette.

By the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution brought about advancements in printing technology, making business cards more accessible to the masses. As trade and commerce expanded, these cards became essential tools for promoting businesses and establishing professional connections.
