Business Card Holders

Updated on August 18, 2014

Beautiful business card holders

By Loretta Livingstone

If you have a business that's on the arty side, you want a card holder that's on the arty side, Yes? You want to be different. I did. I was just about to settle for something traditional when I realised there might be a bit more out there. To save you the effort I've put some of my favourites on here. And if you know someone who uses business card cases - well what a great gift! I'm always delighted to receive a nice one! I'd happily have a collection! I'm sure your friends will be equally pleased, especially if they never thought of getting an unusual one.

Beautiful business card holders for business women

Why use boring old stainless steel, or silver business card holders. Use one with panache, give your business a bit of verve and personality. I was going to use a plain one like my husband's, 'til I discovered At Handbag Heaven. I bought two beautiful enamelled card holders and, from my friends' reactions, realised that lots of us don't even know there is an artistic version we can use. So I've found some lovely ones for you to have a look at. Give yourself a bit of individuality!

If you have a business which is considered arty, why use an ordinary business card holder?

if your business is considered arty....painter, author, musician etc, why use an ordinary old business card holder. My husband is an accountant, but I'm a writer. When I was getting a business card case I suddenly realised it didn't have to be plain, it should be something which reflected my business and personality. Take a look at these. Aren't they gorgeous? I'm so proud to have gorgeous enamelled busniess card holders. I got mine from Handbag Heaven, but can't find them to add to here, but the ones below are just gorgeous too.

What's your card holder like?

Do you have a gorgeous card holder? Do you want one? Or do you prefer plain and simple. Which is best for your line of work?

Great business card holders

I think these look really gorgeous. If people notice your Business Card Case they may comment on it, which gives you the opportunity to turn the conversation to your business. In this economic climate it makes sense to use every opportunity we get.

First impressions

Yes, your business card will create an impression! But create an impression even before they have seen that! Get noticed a bit more. Be different!

More business card holders

I just couldn't resist adding these here too. Aren't they just gorgeous? I'm getting quite addicted to collecting them. Really pretty, and a real talking point.

Business cards are important, too.

I designed my own business cards, using a photograph I'd taken myself. I wanted something which tied in with the name of my website. Something which might stick in peoples minds. The nicest compliment I have had is from someone who said the picture just made him want to dive into the treasure chest. I want my business cards to stand out from everyone else's.

How important is your business card to you

This is a photo of the back and front of my latest business card design. I'm always tweaking it. I can usually find a way to improve it. Rather like my lenses.

Have you considered designing and printing your own business cards?

Here's some interesting ideas. I'm not sure I have the technical skills to print my own business cards, but if I did I think I'd have a go. These items look like they could be most useful.

I'd never heard of these before. They look interesting.

 

Did you design your own business card?

I designed my business card using a template from a website, and adding my own photograph. Lots of people get them designed by professionals tho. Which do you do.

How did you get your business card?

Just a few more lovely cases - because I think they're gorgeous

I know, I know, but they are just so lovely. I really would like some of these. And I enjoy just looking at them, sighing and wondering if I should put some more on my Birthday list.

What do you think?

You already know how important my business cards and card cases are to me, now have your say.

How important is it to you that your cards and cases make an impression?

      @anonymous: I agree. And it's important to be aware of the image you want to project with your business card case. There's a big difference between sleek and efficient, and arty. I'm pleased to be able to choose beautiful arty cases, but there are some very nice sleek business card cases out there which can add that little extra something.

      Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

      I think a nice, professional looking business card holder is an essential business accessory. I bought a really nice stainless steel business card holder last week. It's really nice and sleek. Perfect for the image that I want to project in all my business dealings.

      @Rosanna Grace: I think it adds to the pleasure of having your first business cards. It is such a thrill to be able to put them straight in a beautiful holder. Sounds like yours is doing an excellent job of double duty.

      I am getting a business off the ground and will get some cards made soon! I have a beautiful card holder that I often use instead of a purse as it fits credit cards just as well as business cards.

      @jimporsche86: Yep, it surely isn't helping. Mine is more of a hobby at the moment, but I am hoping when it grows up it will become a business. :)

      @BuckHawkcenter: Haha, I think most of them come in nice little velvet cases, so they don't get messed up. I try to keep mine in them, or in a side pocket in my bag so they stay nice.

      What a great collection of business card holders. I don't think I would use them, I think they are too pretty to get messed up. I must start a new collection!

      @TransplantedSoul: And I think it helps raise peoples' interest when they see you get out your gorgeous holder, not to mention giving you a talking point which leads straight into what you do. I find it gives me a bit more confidence too - silly but true. Thanks for visiting.

      So true - if you are trying to present as artistic - it pays to cover off the smaller details too.

      @WinWriter: Thank you, I'm so glad you like it. I had no idea either, 'til I suddenly needed one for myself, and didn't want a plain one like my husband uses. I've discovered so many gorgeous ones now - I'm getting quite addicted to them. It seemed like something a bit different, and I wanted to show people all th beautiful designs out there. The orchids are really pretty, aren't they.

      I especially love the orchid design. I'm a big fan of orchids. This was a great idea for a lens. I didn't realize there were so many different designs.

      Blue Crystal Waves design is one I really like. The others are really nice too but blue is one of my favourite colours.

      @favored: Lovelifelaughter How nice of you to stop by again, Favored1, so kind of you to remember me. Christmas sales didn't go as well as I'd hoped, however I don't have the Apple sales figures 'til the end of January, for the downloads, so here's hoping they are up. Most people don't expect to enjoy poetry as they think it's rather highbrow. If they tried mine they would see that it can be lighthearted and amusing as well. People who don't normally enjoy it have told me they find mine easy to read. The problem is getting them to try it in the first place. I got a gorgeous new card holder for Christmas, as you see above. I think I'm turning into a card case addict, lol! Hope you had a very blessed Christmas and wishing you a happy New Year. x

      @Linda BookLady: Thank you for your visit and comment, Linda. I responded on your page, but I get a bit confused on squidoo still so I thought it would be nice to respond by email too. I'm so glad you agree with me about business card holders. I really love mine. I think this may be the start of an addiction lol!
