Calling cards for moms (and dads) are all the rage. We've never used them but can see how they could come in handy on the playground. Nursery Reader Heather wants to know: Hi! I'm in the market to buy some Mommy Calling Cards and have found a lot of online sources. While the designs look great online and there is plenty of selection, I want to find a product that is made of good quality card stock (doesn't look cheap or homemade). So, my question is if anyone has any recommendations of cards they ordered that were great quality? Please post any sources. Thank you. Dear Heather:
There certainly are numerous choices for mommy calling cards these days. We love the collection of calling cards available at Juniper Design & Ink (pic above). The cards are printed on linen paper and start at $25 for 50. For something a bit more nostalgic, try these play date cards by Felix Doolittle (pic right). The cards are printed on medium card stock with rounded corners. 40 for $50.
For more pared down and modern, try the Amy calling card by Event Bliss (pic left). We like the simple design (also comes in a Mom with two kids version, but you'll have to ask for custom design if you've got more). The business-size cards have glossy UV coating on front and are matte white on the back. 100 for $60 or 250 for $75. Anyone else have a recommendation? Do you use calling cards?
