Stylish Business Card Holders

Oct 27, 2010

As a child of the digital age, I don’t really understand the need for paper business cards.  Which is probably why I always forget to carry mine.  Luckily, a friend suggested a stylish and utilitarian way to carry my business cards so that I won’t forget them anymore.

During the mid-20th century, smoking was America’s favorite hobby.  Presidents smoked, businessmen smoked, even pregnant women smoked.  So fashionable smoking accessories, sometimes called Tobacciana, were all the rage.  But now that most Americans eschew cigarettes, these accessories can be found aplenty on Etsy or eBay, and they are the perfect way to carry your business cards.

This small turn of the century silver cigarette case is probably the nicest one I’ve seen, and would set you back $90.  If leather is more your thing, you can pick up a bright red cigarette case and matching lighter for $10.  This wood, puzzle box-like case is also very stylish at $40.

So if you’re looking for a stylish way to tote around your business cards, try a cigarette case. It’s certainly better than rummaging through your handbag every time you need one.

    I own one of these in a brushed stainless steel finish. I found it at a thrift store in graduate school, and it has proved itself again and again to be incredibly useful.

    Need a small stylish wallet for a very small evening bag? Just toss in your driver's license, a credit card and a few dollars. Carry it in your pocket to meetings in neighboring buildings with your business cards, ID and a few dollars tucked into the back in case it turns into one of those lunch-from-the-vending-machine days.

    The metal ones do tend to be thinner, if you are looking for something that will fit easily in a pocket.
