Yes... and hand them out all the time; get asked for one quite often. Somehow it seems amateurish to say I don't have a card to give you when asked for one. Besides we are always asked to leave one in houses we show. So always a supply in my handbag.

Buggy whips went out of business because the purpose they served guiding buggies pulled by horses disappeared.

The PURPOSE of the business card is alive and well. Business cards are the common solution in an environment where many narrower solutions exist.
