Social Calling Cards

Do you have your own social calling cards? I have had calling cards in my stationery wardrobe since I was a young girl.  They are great to use at parties, class reunions, or just to give to an old friend when meeting after a long absence.  The card is a great way to connect socially--"Call me, here’s my number."
If you want to learn more about calling cards, try to find this sweet book "Calling Cards," from Victoria Magazine that I have had in my library for many years. All the publications from Victoria are exquisite and this book is no exception.  It’s full of photos of lovely cards and fascinating facts on the history of calling cards as graceful social accessories.
My cards are engraved in brown on ecru paper.  I have used the same cards from William Arthur for many years--they have my full name and my telephone number in the bottom right-hand corner.  You can find beautiful calling cards online at Crane Stationery.

I will share the rest of my stationery wardrobe in my next blogpost.  Thank you for visiting with me today.

I do miss stationery. While I appreciate the speed of email and instant messaging, it doesn't feel the same as the physical. Even greeting cards seem to be in decline. Regardless, I'm going to see if I can find a copy of Calling Cards you mention.

I had ordered my embossed calling cards from Victorian Trading Co and now they don't carry the ones I have always loved. Ecru embossed cards with a swag and little angles on the swag ends.
I have looked everywhere for reasonably priced embossed calling cards

I do miss having these pretty cards with me
