Guidelines for Use
Used only by employees of Appalachian State University.

The business card is a calling card, meant to provide the recipient with a concise way of contacting you. Only primary contact information should be included. A business card is not meant to provide multiple addresses and phone numbers. Include business cards in your correspondence, notes and packages.

The business card is not meant to provide information about your training or level of expertise. Therefore, professional certification initials should not be included. Exceptions are made where the academic certification has a direct bearing on your function represented by the job title on your business card. If you have a doctorate use the title Dr. or use Ph.D. at the end of your name, but do not use both. No courtesy title (Mr., Mrs. or Ms.) is used.
