pagedown has a unique output type to make business cards: pagedown::business_card(). pagedown_business_card_template() creates a YAML template to use for this output. What's unique about this output type is that almost all of the contents are supplied through YAML. An R Markdown file that only contains YAML related to the business card is enough to produce the output, although you can also customize the output in the body of the document (see the pagedown vignette). A good workflow to write a business card is to use pagedown_business_card_template() to specify the YAML and pass it to use_rmarkdown(), which you can then to knit into business cards.
