To whom are you going to hand your business cards? If you're networking
with non-techies at all, then there's a good reason not to do it there.
Even if you're networking with non-perlite techies, it still might be much.

If you're like many programmers, and you plan on wallpapering your cube
with them, then print whatever makes you happy. :)

Basically, think of your audience.
