These are the business cards I give property owners for permission.  I’ve learned that the only time these make sense is AFTER I’ve asked the right person for permission.  Leaving them with a secretary or administrative assistant seems to go into a black hole.   What do you think?

My original cards:

My Metal Detecting Business Cards

One downside to cards is that you can get lazy and be tempted to just “leave your card.” So far, leaving my card has got me zero hunting permission. The way I use it is just to supplement conversations I have in person.


Update:  I have two new versions of my cards…   one for property owners and one for archaeology/preservationists.   They seem to work even better than before.
