If you want to make an extraordinary impression, why use ordinary business cards? Digital Card, based in New York City, just introduced an "advanced multimedia business card." The CarD is a CD-ROM in the shape and size of a business card. It can store text, graphics, audio, video, animation — even Web links. Create a presentation about yourself or your company, send it to Digital Card, and the company will copy it onto a stack of high-tech cards. If you're not up to speed with the latest software, Digital Card will even create a multimedia presentation for you.
The cost per card is $2.60 (minimum order: 500). Service charges for creating presentations vary according to complexity. For more information, call Digital Card (212-769-9152) or visit the Web (www.digital-card.com).
