you’ve been carded

so of course, everyone is aware of the importance of the business card.  you want your contact information — and information about your company and/or your job presented to the recipient, in a compact, easy to manage bundle. this will help them remember you, what you do, and have your contact information handy.

so the new trend is that “business cards” are not just for traditional business anymore!  how many times have you wanted to give your info to someone — anyone  (not just a business associate) — and were fumbling for a piece of paper and a pen? 

as a stay-at-home mom, always looking for a playdate or trying to remember a mom’s name (b/c of course the kids’ names are easy to remember), these “mommy cards” or “playdate cards” are a thing of genius.   personal cards are also great if you’re a natural networker.  these cards are for you if you find that you’re always giving your name and number out to new associates at cocktail parties, a club, the supermarket (or anywhere).  

because they’re not very typical (outside of the business world, of course), you’ll really be making a great impression when you whip out your unique personal contact card.  the other great thing about these little gems is that the sky is the limit in terms of design.  you’re not limited as to how much or how little you put on the card…you’re not bound by rules of some corporate overseer necessarily, your cards can be the traditional 2.5″ x 3″ — or square, or whatever!,  there are no rules as to what you can put on or do wiht the card.  really, the sky is the limit!

really consider one of these, i’d be happy to help you figure out the perfect personal (or business) “ID Card” for you.

get to networking and hopefully you’ll get carded — and will be “carding”!

here’s the one i’m using now for “mommy” purposes:

    Ingrid,
    I love your playdate cards. I used these types of cards myself when I was at home with my first and not working. Moms would always give me their business cards and I would always fumble around for a pen and scrap paper until I wised up and used the playdate card. It was a really great way to reach out to other moms I thought I would click with (and of course the kiddies who I felt would play well with my daughter.) I have some lasting friendships from those I’ve “mommy carded”!
