Creative Uses for Business Card Cases


Have you recently received a new business card holder as a promotion or graduation gift, but haven't received business cards yet? Check out some of our great suggestions on alternative uses for your special gift.

Clever, Creative Uses for Business Card Holder Cases

Traditional Use: Obviously, the most expected use is for holding business cards if you have them. Nobody wants to be handed a card that looks as if it were picked out of the bottom of a handbag or retrieved from the far reaches of a pants pocket. A striking business card case is a great conversation starter, plus it will make a professional impression. Keeping those cards neat and clean when you do finally have them is essential. All are important reasons for being prepared. 

But if you don't have business cards perhaps because you are just starting out or in a field where they aren't the custom business card holders are still one of the most useful gifts you can receive. Here's why:

Business Card Carrier Used as Portable Office Organizer


Metal business card cases make excellent thin metal wallets. They are the perfect way to carry your drivers license and credit cards. A slim case holds just the essentials when you want to travel light or keep a slim profile. With a sleek business card holder, you can just tuck in what you need and slip it into a pocket or tiny purse. Jamming your regular leather wallet in a pocket just wont do, nor do you want to risk leaving cards loose in a cavernous purse, briefcase or bag. 

Kyle Design even makes a slightly thicker business card holder. It allows you to carry your license, credit card, HMO card, health club membership card, plus several bills up to 9 credit cards or 12 tri-fold bills, or some combination of both. I find it can accommodate everything I need for most trips and it keeps me organized. 

Cases Hold Sweetener Packets and Condom Cases


Another slick use for these cases is as a sugar packet carrier. It is just the right size to store packages of sweeteners, tea bags or spice packets. 

Many fashionable women nowadays who enjoy going clubbing or who are actively dating have started carrying calling cards. ID calling cards are just like a business card but with simply a name, email and possibly a photo or cell phone number. This is a classier and safer way to provide contact information when meeting someone new. Again, if you are interested enough to give someone new your ID card, then make a good impression by pulling it out of a gorgeous card holder. Even better, by keeping this case in a pocket, youll never have to ask someone else to keep an eye on your purse again. And, if so inclined, you can even carry a condom in your card holder. 

Business Card Cases Can Hold a Huge Variety of Items


There are many situations where ladies may prefer not to carry my purse with them, preferring instead just to bring an ID, cards and cash. Among them include hotel conferences, helping out at your childrens school, or an evening out. A purse at times can feel like one is carrying everything but the kitchen sink, but in most situations you may find that less is more (comfortable). 

For example, most hotel key cards fit in a standard business card case, so you can leave the bulk behind while working the crowd in the conference room. (Kyle Design even has cases that allow you to hold your credit cards on one side, business cards on the other.) For more formal occasions, many women prefer to use a tiny purse or evening bag, and depending on the style, may find that a designer business card case is the perfect size to tuck inside. 

The above examples are just a small sampling of situations where business card cases are a more convenient way to carry the essentials. With all the distinctive, artistic choices available here at Kyle Design it is easy to find one that reflects your personality and style.
