Cardxc.com is an online business card generator. The site provides the user with code for using the card online, or it can be downloaded and professionally printed offline. The site offers a number of convenient tools for creating business cards. These include a collection of basic card layouts, a template section which consists of templates contributed by users and a layout editor that is very easy to use. The layout editor has a set of predefined fields which are filled out by the user. These fields can then be positioned at various places on the business card. An image (or multiple images) can be used for the background of the card.
For the online business card generator, the layout editor allows the user to enter a description and keywords for search engine visibility. Cards can be published in HTML form by choosing “Embed to site”, or can be published as vCards by choosing “Publish as vCard”. There is a template editor for users wishing to design their own templates. Once a card is published on the site, it has it's own URL, which the user can provide to others, much in the same way as they would hand out a printed card. There is a print option on the card's web page as well, allowing visitors to easily print a copy of the business card. The site has a good selection of basic layouts and templates, and is steadily growing.Show more screenshots »
