TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
In the company I work for we are given business cards at need, i.e., if you
travel or meet internal or external customers. Although I have been trying
to convince the PTB that I need one or two months in France to regain
fluency in French <g>(we are owned by a French bank) I have been told that
I shouldn't expect to travel, so I won't have business cards.
I have recently seen generic business cards for the company with a blank
line each for name and telephone number (I will probably grab some of these
for the STC conference).
BTW "Documentation Goddess" is what one of my co-workers calls me in all
seriousness because I polished up the documents he presented to the PTB.

Subject: RE: Business cards
Management guru Tom Peters urges people to put anything they want as the
title on their business cards, even "Supreme Ruler of the Universe." I
wouldn't want that responsibility, myself, and I did see a resume lately of
a person who listed her job title as "Documentation Goddess." Wouldn't want
THAT responsibility, either! <G>
Just pick a title you're comfortable with. The fictional detective Spenser
(in the "Spenser for Hire" series) kept a pocket file of business cards
several different job titles, one for any occasion!
