Business Card Holders

Updated on March 6, 2008

I am constantly exchanging business cards at work because a major part of my job involves networking. Even if I don’t remain in constant contact with everyone I meet, it is important to keep the business cards because I never know when I will need to contact someone for a project. It is challenging to keep the business cards organized—I’ve found that keeping piles of them around my desk, in drawers, or stuck randomly in binders just doesn’t work.

I have found that the best way to keep business cards organized and accessible is to use a business card holder.

Portable Business Card Holders

You should carry a small holder around with you that is specifically for business cards. This way, whenever someone hands you their card, you can immediately store it in the holder. If you tuck it into your pocket, wallet, or purse, you might never see it again. Business card holders also keep the cards in good condition, so you will be able to keep legible.

Business Card Wallets

A business card wallet is bigger than a small holder, but smaller than what you would keep at your desk. The wallets are great if you are going on a business trip or meeting where you might need access to the cards. These wallets keep your business cards organized when travelling. You might not only have to carry business cards given to you by other people, but also the cards that you will be handing out. A part of social networking is getting your name out there, as well as your company’s name. Sometimes you even need to carry your co-workers’ cards to hand out.

Business Card Binder

Once you get the cards back to your office, you will want to keep them organized together in a big case. This might seem a bit extreme, or OCD, but if you accumulate a lot of business cards, it is important to keep them organized and easy to find. These binders vary in size. Some have alphabetized tabs to help you keep track of cards.

Business cards can be a great way to keep track of all of your social contacts. As you work on new projects, you never know when you might need to look up someone you have met while out in the community. I like to keep notes on my business cards about the people, to help me remember details about them. This comes in handy if someone calls requesting my company’s resources for something they are planning. I can quickly find their business card, and usually a note that will jog my memory about meeting this person.
