Well, so far none of the above mentioned ideas are what I am looking for. I would like to make it so the vcard is attached to the email and make it so there is a link to the vcard in the signature. Is there any way to link to the attachment from inside the email?

I found out that I can customize a business card and add it to my signature. This should work for my customer.

What was wrong with the answer I provided? You said "I found out that I can customize a business card and add it to my signature."

A business card is a .vcf

I already knew about .vcf files and how they worked but I didn't think they would work for our customer because their generic look, but then I found out that you can customize a business card with logo and graphics. I thank you for your input but it didn't really help my issue.
