Never... I always have business cards with me... in my purse, or my wallet, or my pocket. Never could understand those agents or other people in the service industry who say "I just ran out of cards" when asked for one.

I hate handing out business cards.  I would much rather not have one, get the person asking to give me their contact info, and mail them a card with a handwritten note.  Handing a card is simply lazy if you don't get the information of the person asking.

Have to say for me, 'not one time' Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041!  And that being said, there are many people that 'do not have a business card on them', 'just ran out', 'only have a magnetic to put on your frig without their name' (and had to ask twice for that), etc.  Maybe all companies do not have business cards for their employees to hand out, even when they are in direct contact with a customer, and that is a mistake!  I want to remember you and your company, because I'm not paying your invoice (it's being paid by the buyer or the seller) and may want to call your company again, and request 'you'!

I always have cards with me and am surprised how many agents don't. One thing I do is write something on the back. Many, many years ago an old salesman told me a biz card with something written on the back is less likely to be thrown away.
