He told me that my business cards should leave an impression and that what was on the back, was just as important as what was on the front of them.

Refer to my earlier blog Re-purposing a chewing gum packet for what I mean by this.
My cards fit perfectly as they are slightly smaller/shorter than many out there, but that has definitely worked to my advantage in this case.
