"Business Cards" during traveling?

We are planning a trip to Alaska in 2014. It is going to be a bucket list trip of around six months and I was thinking of printing business cards to hand out on the road. Do any of you hand out cards? I was thinking of putting a picture of us as back ground with first names, home base, CB handle, etc on the card. Anyone have thoughts on this?

We've had them and do pass them out occasionally. What I did make up is an Emergency Card.
This card includes the cg and lot number we're in and the dates we're there. Gives the MH plate number, make and model, pets, our names , cell numbers and our sons name and contact numbers. We each have a card in our wallets, one in glove box of the toad. And one on the dash of the mh with the toad's info.

Anything can happen at anytime. A rig sitting in a cg for 3 or 4 days without somebody there probably would not raise suspicion.

They are available for around $10 off the net and can be personalized. We put our email and first names and our coach nothing more. We refer to them as "new friends card"

Many of us had business cards to swap with new friends.

Name, address, phone #, email, and usually a photo of the rig or a graphic.

"Business" cards

When I was cruising in the Caribbean, everyone had "boat cards", the name and picture of the boat, names, and email address, and/or Ham call sign. On my boat card, I also had a Security Officer listed - Sloopy, my cat.

I was planning the same type card when I finally get my 5th and truck and get going. Soon, I hope.

We get cards made up at Office Depot. I believe 500 are about $20. We have our name, web site address, phone number, email address and a background of our lower 48 visited states map. We get a lot of enjoyment out of them.

Try Vista-print on the web. Design your own. Maybe 10 bucks for 250 to 500 cards. We dont list our actual home address, just the city. Safe travels...ed

Mine are called "Friendship Cards" as WagonMaster and Ralley Master for numerous groups in the Northwest, I hand our cards with our picture on them, I have an awful time remembering people myself.
I print them myself as needed.

We are just finishing our Alaska/Canada vacation and I think it's a good idea. We have met lots and lots of people who pull over to look at wildlife etc and we strike up a conversation. If your heading south and they are going north they all want info. I don't have the time right there to share it all but at the end of the day I could email information . We are going to make some up when we get home .
