Vicocards EN FAQ
Which paper size fits best for your desktop?
Vicocards are designed to be printed on DIN A4. Two cards fit per sheet if you use DIN A5 as final size. Four cards work also per sheet if you use DIN A6. Card size DIN A5 would be the best size to be presented in front of the desktop camera for good recognition. If not much space is left on your desk the smaller size will work also.
Can I use plastic coating for Vicocards?
Of course, this depends on the usage of the cards. Plastic coating will protect them and they will look fine even after a while. Please think of the environment and if it is really necessary to do the coating. If you would use matt coating, reflections while showing the cards will be avoided.
Is it allowed to use Vicocards in my company?
Yes, that is possible. Vicocards are published under the creative common license. You could use them in your organisation.
Can I use Vicocards for classic meeting formats?
Yes, that is also possible. The main idea is to use Vicocards for video conferences. Thus not all messages of the cards will work out for classic meeting formats. We would use print size DIN A4 because of the longer distance and for better recognition.
Which paper weight should I use?
Depending on your printer we recommend 130 g/qm for best results. This is printable and it is not too thin. Paper weight of 80g/qm is fine, too. But there would be less stiffness and the usability would be not as good as with thicker paper.
May I buy the cards in a printed version?
Until now there is no printed version for sale available. But if you are interested in, feel free to request a set beginning with 100 pieces.
How can I have quick access to my Vicocards?
Sort the cards and put them in easy reach on your desktop. Then the cards are always accessible. Extra Tipp: Put down the cards always at the same spot for faster access. There will be then no need to search for the cards.
How can I access Vicocards on my mobile device?
Just store the Vicocards PDF on your mobile device and open it. Then swipe to your favourite cards. By using a PDF App you avoid navigation menus on the screen.
Which color is to be used for which purpose?
Find the instruction in each Vicocard deck and how to use the different colors.
Why are Vicocards for free?
I work since serveral years in the area of “Digital Collaboration” and I use video conferences a lot. During the video conferences I discovered a lot of problems and got to know the pain for the participants. That is how the idea developed.
In addition to that I wanted to contribute something to society which is a practicable solution in corona times.
I am convinced that you create a better atmosphere in video conferences, online-meetings and online workshops by using the cards. These become more effective and more social. Try it.
