Summary description:  Businesscards with QR-Code

Announcement text:
 What happens, if you give your visiting card to someone? 
 Either he manually types the text into his computer or mobilefone,
 or it will end up in a box and be forgotten.
 Nowadays data is required electronically, not on paper.
 Here is the solution: A visiting card with QR-Code that contains a full vcard,
 so that it can be scanned with an app on the mobilefone and therefore automatically
 imported into the electronic contacts.
 This also works well, when you are offline and bluetooth transfer fails.
 So here is the highly configurable business card or visiting card
 with full vcard as QR-Code, ready to send to online printers.
 You can specify the exact size of the paper and the content within
 the paper, inluding generation of crop marks.
