Little Papers You Can Put Your Name On

Today is Freebie Friday here at The Crane Insider. The first order of business is to announce last week’s winner, and that is – Lisa T! She left this comment:

I am brand new to gardening, so I’m sorry to say I do not have any tips. This will be my first spring with a patch of land to cultivate! I would love to win this pad and journal as I am sure that I’ll be need to jot notes and such as I go along.

Wish me luck!

Congratulations Lisa. Send me your address at peter(dot)hopkins@comcast.net.

Here’s what we’ve got on tap for today. (It’s maple sugaring season here in Vermont!) Little papers you can put your name on. Place cards are such a simple way to dress up any dinner party, whether it’s a full table of eight, or an intimate table for two. These place cards are so elegant. Their edges have been rounded, beveled and gilded with silver or gold. (You can see how it’s done here).

Along with them, you will see one of my very favorite papers from the recent past: A boxed set of calling cards:

You know me; I love calling cards, and they have become quite the stationery phenomenon as you can see here.

So, in order to win these little papers you can put you name on, I would like your opinion on boxed calling cards – cards on which you write your own name and contact information. Are they a good and safe means of exchanging contact information for young people? Are they too much trouble and you’d rather just have your information already printed on them? Would they provide an inexpensive entry for personal branding?

What do you think?
