Collecting Business Cards

Now that Shoeboxed scans business cards, we encourage you to collect as many cards as you can. By sending them in to Shoeboxed, you will have a complete archive of all your cards.

Before Shoeboxed, we all had to keep track of our business cards somehow. From those plastic sheets made specifically for business cards to the more common wallet- or desk-stash, everyone has always been a collector of business cards.

But did you know that some people collect business cards as a hobby? Many people collect business cards of famous people or people involved in important historical events. The International Business Card Collectors is an organization that formed in 1999 to connect collectors together so they can educate each other and, of course, exchange cards!

So if you are looking for a place to meet other collectors, you should definitely check out this organization. If you are already a member of the IBCC, you should try out Shoeboxed. It’s a great way to get a lot of business cards digitized so you can keep your collection forever.

Also, if you’re a business card collector and have a gallery of your collection online, link to your site in the comments so everyone can see!
