George Bush Business Card with QR Code

(Added: January 18th, 2010 [1] QR Coded LinkedIn profile with tracking on your business card).

(Added: January 13th, 2010 Since I wrote this post Viscards seems to have ceased operation).

(Added: May 3rd, 2009 I am now using my new and very different [2] Web 2.0 business card to great effect).

How many different ways can you think of to get a working QR Code on your business card?

Here are two to start the ball rolling and when you think of others please add them in a comment.

First, the way that MT Digital’s [3] Viscards would have you do it.

1. Sign up at viscards.com
2. Enter your contact information
3. Download your QR Code which points to http://www.viscards.com/your-user-name, the location of your vCard .vcf file.
4. Print the QR Code on your business card

Quite straight forward and once you have signed up you can go back and change the contact information (if you change jobs for example) and still use the same QR Code.

A second method using a drop.

1. Create your vCard .vcf file [4] in Outlook or one of the many online generators like [5] vCardMaker
2. Creat a new drop at [6] drop.io and upload the .vcf file like this for example http://drop.io/hgjyqfr
3. Create a QR code [7] somewhere like here for your drop.io url.
4. Print the QR Code on your business card

If you change jobs then you just create and upload a new .vcf file

Here is an example of one I produced on [8] drop.io and one on [9] Viscards both for The President.
