Slashcard is a memorable way to keep and share business cards. No apps to download and no account to manage. Just a simple /Card/ URL and the camera on your smartphone.
Let's improve the act of swapping cards without over complicating things.
People have been exchanging paper business cards for decades. It's a very human ritual: passing a small and delicate object, a momentary pause to acknowledge a new acquantance's name and details, the anticipation of what may lie ahead for this new relationship.
The smartphone era has led to countless attempts at "fixing business cards" with mobile apps, barcodes, bluetooth and bumping electronics. These are all clunky and socially awkward alternatives that will never be widely understood or accepted.
It's time for a fresh approach.
With a digital /Card/, exchanging cards is simple

Made your own /Card/ template and want to share it with the world? Cool beans! Make a pull request on this repo and add it here.
Easy. Just add a /card/ page to your website, and start creating your card. Choose from one of the pre-made templates or roll your own.
We recommend the following guidelines:
Not so savvy with code, or happy to use something pre-made? See our examples above.
The project is totally free and open for all. It's not a business. We are just like-minded folks who're done with physical business cards.
Please, join us.

Want to lend a hand? We're always looking for contributors to the project. View the project on GitHub.
We're planning a new section of this site that will gather a listing of business cards. Given the distributed nature of the project, this is totally optional.
Submit the URL for you card to let us know you'd be interested to see such a thing. We'll let you know when it comes online.
Thanks for submitting your details. We'll be in touch with progress on the Rolodex.
