Getting Down to Business

As I prepare to attend my first ever writer’s conference, I have found myself swimming in a deluge of options for, you guessed it, business cards.

What exactly should a writer put on a business card?  Basic contact info, obviously, but how detailed should I get? Should I list what genres I write?  Do they really need my physical mailing address?  Is it okay to make cutesy business cards, or she I keep things strictly business?

Luckily, I have stumbled across this blog post by Lauren Ruth on Slushpile Tales, which gives at least one publisher’s opinion on the matter; it’s got the answers to a lot of the questions I had.  I thought I’d share the wealth!
