Kentucky Colonel Business Cards

The Office of the Colonelcy recommends that Kentucky colonels make their own business, Internet and personal presentation cards based on our official guidelines. The Office of the Colonelcy does not recommend combining Kentucky Colonel with other trades, business concepts, organizations or ideas outside of their personal branding and title use.

Presentation, Signature and Certification

When a Kentucky Colonel is introduced it is because it was for an honor that is awarded to less than one hundredth of one percent of the population, so it is important that they act like a colonel to impress their audience or company. Having an impressive business card is one of the best ways to make an impression, especially if they like you!

Today there are different types of business cards and methods of presentation that extend to the computer. Check back in 2023 when we add some standard models that can be produced by a number of printers.

Kentucky Colonel Business Cards

Business cards are cards bearing business information about a company or individual. They are shared during formal introductions as a convenience and a memory aid. A business card typically includes the giver's name, company or business affiliation (usually with a logo or other image) and contact information such as street addresses, telephone number(s), fax number, email addresses and website.

Today business cards may include social media addresses such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. Traditionally, many cards were simple black text on white stock, and the distinctive look and feel of cards printed from an engraved plate was a desirable sign of professionalism. In the late 20th century, technological advances drove changes in style, and today a professional business card will often include one or more aspects of striking visual design.
