If, after reading last week’s post, you spent some time designing business cards, and they’re on their way to you from the printer, consider this your next step. A business card holder is a way to look professional, and show some personal style. It’s also a way to protect your investment; you don’t want to be giving out cards that are dirty, folded, or bent.
I keep a little stack of cards in my wallet for business emergencies, but I also have a series of card holders to keep things organized. One for my purse, and one for each of my camera bags. I also try to keep one easily accessible in the pocket of my jacket. After a few mishaps where I moved my gear from one bag to another, but forgot to move my cards, I don’t see any harm in being a little over-prepared. Because I have a few different business cards, I try to keep a full set of cards in each holder.
I’ve found a number of very affordable options at business or art supply stores, but I wish I owned Mjolk’s lovely wooden case….sigh. A girl can dream.
1. Wooden case from Mjolk – $98
4. Bungee Card Case from Umbra – $7
6. The ShowCase from Moo – $11
Whether sleek and simple or ornately vintage, it shouldn’t be too hard to track down a business card case for your little beauties.
