pioneered the Otterson Electronic Business
Card in the mid-90s. Of course, in these days, it was available
on full size CD or, most commonly, floppy disc. Now the popular
format is 50 MB business card sized CD but we can still offer all
formats, including the floppy disc if you would like a retro look.
The floppy format was popular, in the early days,
with a client who regularly visited the more remote parts of Africa
and wanted to show his web site with the latest business offers
to local businesses and organisations with no Internet access. We
were even able to squeeze an off-line browser onto the floppy. He
found that he could telephone Otterson-BG 48 hours before leaving
for another visit and have his site updated and 20 floppies prepared
ready for him to collect on the way to the airport.
The availability of business card CDs with 50MB
of data potential has meant that much more sophistic material can
be used. While we list some of the uses below, design is completely
flexible to meet your needs.

buy just what you need for use between updates of your products,
services or web site - no quantity is too small. Your
