Calling Cards vs. Business Cards

I've always preferred the look of calling cards over business cards. Here are some I had made. They are more pleasant than your typical business card, and they come packaged like a gift.

Most calling cards are printed on both sides, and on think paper, and they are often decorated very artistically. They feel like a small piece of art rather than a business card.

The company I bought these from told me that calling cards are often popular with two groups of people I had not considered: Stay at home parents who meet other parents at the play ground, and dog owners who meet other dog owners at dog parks.

I like giving them out as business cards, since they look nice and other people often comment on them when receiving them.

For more information on calling cards, see this great article recommended by David Dickens titled The Gentleman’s Guide to the Calling Card - http://artofmanliness.com/2008/09/07/the-gentlemans-guide-to-the-calling-card/ It talks about how to design and use calling cards, and where to have them made.

Seems like they should be delivered with a sterling silver salver. (Say that three times fast! )

Cute design and I love the packaging! But have to ask, did you mean to say "attitude" on the card?

Kate Harper said...

Dorky Ramos-yes I meant to say "attitude" - since that's how I describe my artwork.

To Anonymous-see the left sidebar navigation under "copyrights Legal info"

I figured, just asked cause it seems to be misspelled on the card in the photos.

Hello Kate, new to your blog, still digging around, but a quick question, and probably unrelated to this post... we're getting into the wedding stationery business, we're starting with save the date magnets (link below); however would like to move into doing traditional invites, thank you cards, etc. My question: we'd like to license artwork for weddings stationery, do you have a good source? We learned w/ the magnets coming up with original designs is time consuming and expensive.
