Maybe it's just me, but I think a pretty calling card can make quite an impact and help people remember you. Case in point: my friends Sue and Thai recently went on a trip to the East Coast (I was jealous) and brought me back a couple of unique cards from two Brooklyn businesses (I've never been, but Brooklyn seems so cool). They're the top two -- the oversized one from domestic construction and the one that reminds me of a rucksack from nydesignroom. The bright red one is from a tiny bar my friends and I discovered on a fantastic, insane 3-day trip to London a few years ago. I keep it out on my dresser because it reminds me of all the craziness and fun of that trip which is a nice way to start the morning.
