Work Staples: Business card cases

You're rockin' it at a networking event when you meet someone important – a rep from your dream company, a potential BFF or a like-minded entrepreneur – and they hand you a business card.

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.


How many cards do you have, and what do you use to hold them?

  4. I always kept my business cards in a case. I bought a metal one a few years ago. Since then I got 2 cases at different events. The one free case only holds about 6 cards and I don't like it. Sometimes when I need a tiny purse, I take my cards out and put license, credit card, and $20 in it in my purse.

  20. Man's greatest achievement? Perhaps not, but can you afford not to read on when I am about to tell you about <a href='http://simplywinch.com/">professional</a>? I find myself constantly drawn back to the subject of professional. Given that its influence pervades our society, it is yet to receive proper recognition for laying the foundations of democracy. The juxtapositioning of professional with fundamental economic, social and political strategic conflict draws criticism from global commercial enterprises, many of whom blame the influence of television. Here begins my in depth analysis of the glorious subject of professional.

When you consider how easy it used to be to Coach Factory Outlet find fake versions of extremely expensive bags on Canal Street (I remember it very Ralph Lauren Outlet distinctly from a trip to Tiffany And Co New York as a teenager–there Coach Factory Outlet was no pretense of Marc By Marc Jacobs secrecy), it seems as though Kate Spade Handbags the NYPD's Coach Outlet and luxury brands'combined efforts to curb counterfeiting may be paying dividends. Tiffany.com If nothing else, counterfeiters are having to work harder to sell their wares.As for why the market has shifted to bags Marc Jacobs Outlet that retail for only a couple hundred dollars,Coach Factory Outlet Women's Wear Daily doesn't Gucci Outlet draw any Michael Kors Outlet conclusions, but I do have Michael Kors Outlet Online one piece of coach factory advice: contemporary Valentino Shoes bags go on Marc Jacobs Outlet sale regularly around Chi Flat Iron Official Website the Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses Internet at reputable Tiffany And Co retailers, Beats By Dr Dre Headphones and when you consider the relatively Sac hermes small price Coach Factory Outlet difference Cheap Oakleys between Lunettes Vue Ray Ban buying a marked down contemporary Chi Flat Iron bag and picking up a fake on Coach Factory Outlet vacation, we'd suggest Hermes Bag you take the real Cheap Nike Air Max thing every time.Ray Ban Sunglasses In a Valentino Shoes On Sale certain way, the rise and tiffany Outlet
