if there is webpage including IDN, I think that the users will show a URL with IDN instead of punycode or ASCII verison domain name on the other side of the business card.
In China, there is a famous advertisment by China weather bureau in CCTV (a famous powerful TV in China) a few years ago, which shows [Chinese Character Weather].cn inestead of weather.com.cn.
my point is that IDN will appear in common in the other side of the business card when IDN is becoming popular.
