Then, we need to get rid of sufficient empty lines so the Mobile Phone is visible on the card.

We additionally added an internet site as well as e-mail address as well as got rid of more blank lines so they show up.

You can also move message to the best side of the card or make it centered on the card.

We also changed the shade of the lower 3 lines to blue. Click OK to accept your adjustments as well as shut the dialog box.

The last style of business card shows in business Card view on the People display.

If you have a signature that contains the business card for the call you simply upgraded, you will certainly additionally need to upgrade the signature by eliminating the business card and also including it again using the Business Card switch in the Signature editor. You can additionally add the upgraded Business Card to a signature without the picture or without the vCard (. vcf) documents.
