SUBJECT: Printing of Business Cards
Department of Defense (DoD) memorandum dated August 28, 1998, same subject as above, modified DoD policy to permit the printing of business cards, using existing software and agency-purchased card stock, for use in connection with official activities. That policy is now amended to authorize the purchase of business cards from The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc., a Javits-Wagner-O'Day participating non-profit agency, when addressees determine that costs are equivalent or less to purchase cards rather than to produce them on a personal computer.
Addressees may authorize the printing of business cards by the Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc., for those organizations or positions under their cognizance that require business cards in the performance of their official functions. This authority may be delegated to subordinate management officials at general or flag rank and civilian members of the Senior Executive Service.
should be reminded that cards obtained under this authority are to be used
only for official business purposes.
