Business cards are a useful way of marketing yourself or networking with others. In the old days however, it involved going to a printing company or using one of those dodgy machines in motorway service stations where you could whip up a cheap card 'while-u-wait'.
Thanks to programs such as Business Card Composer however, you can now create your own cards in a few clicks. Business Card Composer is a complete kit to create and print business cards, calling cards and badges. To get you going, the full version contains over 1,000 high-quality clip-art images and over 500 ready-made designs.
The handy thing about Business Card Composer is that it integrates with Apple Address Book and iPhoto, meaning you can create cards based on contacts and import images that you've taken yourself. The handy thing about Address Book integration is that you don't have to update the cards themselves if details change - simply update Address Book and the cards follow automatically. Business Card Composer even has Google Maps integration and support for 2D bar codes.
On the downside, this is a very limited program and some may not like having to pay for something that they can do manually in other design apps. The fact is though, that Business Card Composer certainly makes it much easier.
