Jacob,

I am continually astounded by the number of people I meet at networking events who not only don't have business cards on them, but also:

1) don't seem to concerned about it
and
2) don't have a backup plan (which should be to make an excuse and then ask for theirs so you can mail/drop off/email them your card).

To prevent this problem, I have stashes of business cards everywhere; car, purse, notebooks, office, home, spouse's wallet, etc.

Thanks Beth for your comments. I am also amazed at the number of people who I meet who either don't have cards or run out. If you are attending an event, then business cards should be one of the first things you should be ready with. Good for you for being prepared.
