Smart & Sustainable - 7 Reasons Why You Need NFC Business Cards

While it is difficult to provide precise statistics on the damage that paper business cards do to the environment, it is clear that paper production and usage have significant environmental impacts, including deforestation, greenhouse gas emissions, and pollution. Switching to digital business cards can help reduce these impacts and promote more sustainable business practices.

The paper industry is the fourth largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions among manufacturing sectors worldwide, and according to the Clean Air Council, in the United States alone, over 10 billion business cards are printed each year, which requires about 88,000 trees and produces over 3.3 million pounds of waste.

Using digital NFC business cards has now become the smart, sustainable, and logical technology alternative to traditional paper business cards.

Here are 7 reasons why you should consider using one reusable NFC business card instead of using many traditional paper business cards:

1. Environmentally friendly:

Digital business cards are not handed over, just shown, so they eliminate the need for repeated production of paper to give away cards or reprint new ones everytime you need to update information or start a new professional venture or position, thus reducing your carbon footprint and helping to protect the environment.

2. Cost-effective:

Unlike traditional paper business cards, digital business cards are reused over and over again for the cost of one single digital business card with integrated NFC. In comparison to the cost of printing hundreds of paper business cards, digital business cards are very cost-effective.

3. Convenient:

You can easily change the information that you show using your digital business cards, and you can pick and choose, depending on the situation (business, social, private) what information you want to share with a new person you just met.

4. Easy to update:

With NFC business cards, you can easily update your information and add new information. For example, the next time your contact information changes (change of title, phone number, address etc…), you do not need to print a new set of 200 paper business cards. You can simply update the information in your NFC business card using the BLK CARDS mobile App. You will never need to print another paper business card ever again.

5. Interactive:

NFC business cards can include links to your anything, website, social media profiles, vCard, WhatsApp, podcasts, videos, channels, playlists, songs, albums, documents, brochures, and even NTFs...and any other online content.

6. Professional:

NFC business cards can be customized with your logo and branding, making them a professional representation of your business. They also allow you to stand out and make a memorable first impression while pitching, selling and socializing.

7. Easy to store:

NFC business cards take up no physical space, making them easy to store in your wallet, your purse or your pocket.

Never run out of business cards ever again. All you need is one NFC business card!
