International Etiquette for Professional Business Cards
With an increasingly global economy, international outsourcing and more and more companies opening foreign offices, the odds are good that you'll be doing business outside the U.S. in your lifetime.
It's important to remember that different countries have different customs when it comes to exchanging professional business cards. While everyone appreciates quality business cards, there are specific rules one must follow for different parts of the world.
