Thanks for the great post, Kathy! I, too, often wonder how and why calling cards fell out of fashion. I have a few very old fashioned plain ones with my name and address printed on them, but I love the colorful modern ones in The Well Appointed Desk's post. Let's bring cards back!



Calling cards have fascinated me for a while. I too would like to know why they fell out of fashion! I use some business cards I've printed as a sort of calling card. I might make some with my ravelry name for when I cross paths with fellow fibre artists though.


I have always loved the idea of calling cards. While I did at least get mini Moo Card business cards printed with my blog information (which has come in handy a few times), I'm now wishing I had formatted them more like a calling card. I do like the idea of being able to share a bit more personal information when desired.


I made myself cards once but never gave them to anyone because it felt presumptuous. I love the simplicity of old cards and would love to make some for myself again, although I still don't know if I have anyone to distribute them to.

Definitely going to letterpress print some of the first card


I'm so happy you added P.G. Wodehouse to your post. I came across this and was delighted.
