What exactly is a calling card?

Calling cards actually have a history of their own. In the 1800s to early 1900s Before traditional business cards, calling cards were used by individuals as a mark of their introduction or visit. Read more about the history of the calling card.

Nowadays, this tradition can still be leveraged to make a clever, memorable first impression - especially in a day where personal, tangible connections are in the decline.

Each card features your first and last name followed by your choice of either an email address or a phone number. Simple, elegant and to the point.
