Personalized calling card

Would it be wrong to make up little cards that say something like:



On the back it could say:



The situations where these would come in handy are endless.
  • Waiting for an appointment
  • In line at the store
  • Waiting for a table at a restaurant
  • Gynecologist visits
  • Drive-thru
  • Family vacation
I'm sure there are many other applications I haven't thought of but these could really make life grand!

In addition, Joe could keep a stash in his wallet to hand out. Like this past Friday when Joe was at a doctor's appointment. I worry an unnatural amount. I think I'm somehow less patient when I'm not the patient. While waiting, I was thinking it would be great if he could hand them something like this, maybe speed them up a little.

I'm totally going to call and get a quote.

I think those calling-cards would be just the right medicine! And so, perhaps, would be a visit to my Silly Sunday Sweepstakes?

Snarky A. said...

Fabulous cards. Oh, I can think of so many time when these would come in handy...

Maybe I should call and get a quote for something similar as well... Brilliant, Cate!

The Wife O Riley said...

Those are great! You can also make a sign to hold up.

C. Beth said...

I think it's fantastic, and I love the peaceful background. I always like to make sure I'm presenting a peaceful aura before punching someone in the face.

andy said...

i am SO making some calling cards now.

i love the back of the card the best...now if only i had a catch phrase.

must ponder.

andy

p.s. i realize that i am a failure for not joining SWS. there is no need to point it out.

Call Me Cate said...

Melissa - I'l take a visit!

Snarky A - Maybe we can get a group discount!
Wife O Riley - I can hire someone to wear one of those sandwich boards and follow me around!

C Beth - I designed the graphic background before adding the text. I was originally going for a more calming request but it was so not "Cate" of me.

Andy - you may borrow my phrase until you find one of your own. And no failing yesterday. I don't write people off for one missed Saturday!

Just say Julie said...

Fantastic! I'd like to hand these out to parent's at the beginning of the year.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

the letters i wish i'd written said...

the front of the card is fantastic, the back of the card is genius!

PetalsYoga said...

I love the subtlety of these cards.

SO understated and yet so effective.

LOVE IT!

blognut said...

I think this is a fabulous idea, and I happen to know that it wouldn't cost you much at all to have them printed.

'Cause, like, my husband? Commercial Printer!!!

Yaya said...

Those are hilarious!

Juliana said...

LOL, I like the way you think! I could use something like this myself!

Call Me Cate said...

Just Say Julie - A variation of these would work quite nicely in school!

Teresa - Thanks for stopping by! I'll try to return the visit!

the letters i wish i'd written - Well thank you!

PetalsYoga - I think the message is in such conflict with the design, they'll have to read it twice. This will make it more likely to stick with them.

blognut - Your husband may be my new best friend!

Yaya - glad you like!

Juliana - If we put our heads together, I'm sure this group could come up with the perfect wording.

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Fabulous idea!

Sassy Britches said...

If you do NOT call for an estimate, I will punch YOU in the face. I am not even KIDDING you; I think this is a brilliant idea. Go for it.
