    I was working with a Middle Eastern business client, and I told him his current business cards were a bit crappy and he needs to get some better ones.

    My client appreciated the advice. He recently wrote to me and asked to help him find great cards and money is not an issue.

    I am looking around, but don't know where on the planet the top top business cards come from... Where do the insane rich get their cards? Anyone got names?

    PS: I am looking for something a bit higher than Crane.

    The ornateness of a business card is inversely proportional to the position of the owner.

    If you must have one, the plainer the better.

    Unless you are a young "creative", in which case go ahead and make the metal one!
