Is there a way to attach multiple contact information to an email? Manually copying field-by-field to text body is even worse than sending them via SMS.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Well, ok. The answer is correct, even if far from satisfying. I personally will not force people to deal with vcards - who knows what software and devices they use. – Justinas Dūdėnas Sep 29 '13 at 16:36

From the web-based version you can using the export functionality. Select you contacts in the contacts browser, select More->Export and select vCard format for your selected contacts. You can then download the file and attach it to your email.

True. Still sms beats gmail here :) – Justinas Dūdėnas Feb 1 '12 at 10:06

I had the same problem but was able to find a quick way out on the Mac. I am sure you can do this on other OSes too with a thick Contacts client.

  1. I synced my Mac Address Book application with my gmail contacts.
  2. Created a new email message
  3. Dragged the contacts from the Address Book application into the body of the mail message

I had an email with multiple VCFs attached.
