Scan the image on the right with your mobile phone and it will put
my contact details in to your contacts on your mobile phone!
I don't expect you to manually type my Name, Company name, Company address, Phone number, Cell phone number, Email address and Website address into your mobile phone using a tiny keyboard without any spelling mistakes.
It's just a black and white image which can be printed on Letterheads, Business Cards, Flyers, Newspaper Advertisements, Vehicles, even Buildings, websites and tee shirts.
The simple fact is: if someone scans the image with their mobile phone it stores your contact details in their contacts on their mobile phone, if you're in business you need a 3DvCard.
This is the really cool part:
Your 3D barcode image always stays the same, its the vCard it links to that you can change anytime.
Example: Suppose you make a 3DvCard send it to the printer who prints it on your letterheads, then you send some letters out .
Then years later you change your phone number or change your business name etc. You come back here and update your details.
If someone scans one of those old letterheads from years ago they will get your current up to date information!!
Because the image stays the same, it just links to the vCard and you maintain the vCard here on this website.
Fictitious Local Plumber Bob Smith wants to boost his business.
Being a wise chap he creates a 3DvCard
..He saves the his 3D bardcode image on his computer by right clicking and Save As...
..Then emails the people who maintain his website and asks them to put the 3D barcode on his contact page.
..Then emails the printers and has thousands of Flyers printed containing his 3D barcode with the text "Scan to save in Contacts" printed close to it
..Then emails the local Newspaper and takes out an advertisement also containing his 3D barcode and the words "Scan to save in Contacts" etc.
..Then he contacts the sign writers and has a large vinyl 3D barcode put on the site of his van.
..Then he paste's his 3D barcode and HTML link into his email signature.
It impossible to know how many people will scan his 3DvCard, but we do know if thousands of people in Bob's local area have his details stored on their mobile phones it is going to be very good for Bob's business
People very rarely remove contacts and they always transfer contact to their new mobile phones, the trick is getting your details into their contacts.

Where as a normal striped barcode contains numbers, QR codes or 3D barcodes contain letters and numbers: the QR Code on the right simply has the words "Welcome to 3DvCard.com"
vCards have been around almost as long as the world wide web, they are the industry standard format for communicating contact information. Because they've been around so long most if not all email systems and mobile devices accept them.
