Design Your Own Calling Cards

Moo Business Cards

When you meet someone cool at a party who you want to stay in touch with, you probably say "Facebook me," right? Since Facebook allows us to personalize the URLs of our Facebook profiles (they started on June 13, 2009), it's easier than ever to direct people to your page. (Did you beat out your Facebook name twins for the URL you wanted? I got mine,!)

Here's a new idea: If you want to make a strong impact when you meet someone, get mini, personalized cards printed up on with your name, new Facebook URL, and a design or photo of your choice. This is especially perfect if you're starting college in the fall and meeting tons of new people. 100 mini cards only cost 20 bucks!

These Cards aren't just for the employed. They're also a retro way of socializing — back in Europe in the 1800s, young, well-to-do Victorian ladies would hand out little cards like these to let a visitor know she had stopped by...or to drop a hint to the cute suitor she was crushing on (hint, hint).

Even though I have business cards for work, which honestly are boring, I'm making fun ones with photos and my personal contact information, to keep in my wallet in case I meet anyone awesome who I want to keep in touch with.

Important: Don't put your mailing address on the card — only give that to people you really trust. But you can put your new Facebook URL on there, a blog address, a Twitter username, or an email address. Also, don't use your fabulous, funky cards for business. If you're on a serious job interview an employer would want to receive something more formal. But these playful cards are perfect for promoting a creative hobby, staying in touch with friends, or giving a hint to a cute guy to look you up!

How would you design your cards?

Fashionably yours,
