I use business cards for checking in to campgrounds. I've only been asked to fill out 1 form since I started using them in April of 2012. On these cards is my name, address, phone number, email address, motor home brand, model, size, and tag number, and my toad brand, model, and tag number. It's much easier for the person checking me in also and guarantees no misunderstandings.

I have also made "in case of emergency" cards and have them in several places.

I use a business card wallet to hold all my membership cards, driver's license, insurance cards, roadside assistance card, around 100$, and the credit cards I'm using during the trip. I stock the wallet with a bunch of personal info cards also. When I'm ready to find a campground and check in for the night I just grab the wallet. Everything is at hand immediately.

It just moves right into my purse once I'm settled in.

I've had cards since 1978. If you have MS Office on your PC (Word) you can go on line and choose from many different formats. Purchase the card stock from an office supply store and make and print your own cards at your convenience.

Yes. Me too, and print as needed. Problem with buying 500 at a time is when you have changed. I usually print 20 (2 pages) at a time with edited info or new rig picture.

I print my own cards w/the iRV2 logo, my avatar, user name, title, website & emaill address. I hand them out all the time. If anyone remembers getting one stuck in their entry door at the Affinity Rally in Louisville, KY( 2011 I think)....that was me.

Actually QSL cards are 3"x5" and are used for confirmation of a radio contact. The OP is talking about a business card or "eye-ball" card. They are easy to obtain and bring back good memories of the meeting.

Mine has my ham call on it.... Two suggestions.

1: Vista Print: Low cost commercial printing.

2: Avery Design Pro.. This is software for your PC which uses Avery pre-cut cards and labels (The cards are 10 to a page and they are die cut for easy seperation after printing) it also does return address labels, "other" labels, mailing labels (And it can import from at least one database so it can do a mail list for you) and more. I use the 8 1/2" by 11" "Full Sheet" label size to make signs and such.

And the price for the software is right ($0.00) though the printing stock is a bit expensive.
Home is where I park it!

We used business cards for our Alaska trip in 2012 and continue to use them today. We correspond with people that we have met along the way. Additionally, We started a blog to capture our travels and keep all of our friends updated on our travels by looking at our blog. It has proven to be an excellent source for us to review and remember the good times of our travels. I would encourage you to create a blog for all to follow your travels. Our blog is: RVGR8escape
By going to 2012 you can see our Alaska trip.

Safe travels and THE JOY IS IN THE RIDE
