Sure, you might need a card holder to actually hold your business cards, but why use one that's boring? Metal? Black? Blah. How about a suede one with a pop of color to it? This one happens to be simple and cute, but gives your professional side just a little touch of style ... and we all need some of that. Or you could just use it to stash your debit card, license, and dollar dollar bills y'all. Then call it a day. Simple, right?

Hallmark's got it's time and place -- like your second cousin's graduation and when your grandmother turns 88. Some of us, however, don't share the innocent emotions and vocabulary of drugstore greeting cards. That's why we should stock up on the genius-desktop publishing creations of Blue Barnhouse, who not only convey your messages in a more light-hearted manner, but that sometimes are just plain crude, like my sense of humor. Christmas cards with Santa refusing autographs and romantic cards with lovers calling one another just a "booty call" are exactly the kind of honesty that is lackick from most gift shops. The Asheville, North Carolina letterpress studio has taken the glitter and pop-up flower idea of the 99 cent greeting card section out and given us a reason to actually keep the little vessels for birthday checks. While not all of their cards are an honest slap-in-the-face, the more cutesy cards still may give you an honest giggle (like the skunk apology card that says "I'm sorry I stink"). If you've already got a stand-out personality, share your true self with your friends and express on paper what you really think about them on their special occasions -- or at least check out this slideshow for a good chuckle!
