The Return of the Calling Card
I recieved my weekly copy of TIME magazine on Saturday and opened it to find a great article on the return of the calling card. We have always thought these little cards made a big statement, seems like the editors at TIME magazine now agree!
"'Is it technology fatigue? A colorful way of branding yourself? We're not sure,' says Peter Hopkins of Crane & Co....calling cards - essentially nonbusiness business cards - have brought a welcome dose of energy to the stationery industry. Among the buyers: playdate-seeking parents eager for a sane way to exchange contact info, retirees who miss having business cards and itinerant young professionals whose cell phones and e-mail addresses are their most reliable locators."
Clearly, whoever you are, a calling card is a great idea. It is a great way to to express yourself. The options for these cards are truly endless, colored paper, custom logos, letterpressed, you name it. We can't wait to help you with your new identity!
