What do you do?
(a) Stutter, "Oh, I don't have any cards with me now, but I'll email you."
(b) Rummage around the bottom of your bag and pull out a dirty wrinkled card.
(c) Pull out your snazzy business card holder and hand them a crisp clean card with your contact info.
I wish I could say it was always (c), but for me, the answer is usually (a) or (b). I have a few cards (for work, freelancing, my volunteer work and the blog), so it's hard to keep them all straight or in stock in my purse. I use a Coach coin purse that was a gift back in grad school to tote some around, but I have to admit I usually forget to switch it when I switch purses. For that reason, I usually keep 1 or 2 cards in my wallet, too.
Card cases keep your cards handy, clean and crisp. They're also a fun accessory, so let your personality come through! Check out these sweet options.
