Crane & Co and Baby iDesign in TIME

Congrats to two of our stationers - Crane & Co. and Baby iDesign - who were featured in TIME Magazine's article on the return of the calling card.

Some are teenier than standard business cards, others much bigger, and many come in bright colors that seem anything but stodgy. Among the buyers: playdate-seeking parents eager for a sane way to exchange contact info, retirees who miss having business cards to hand out... and itinerant young professionals whose cell phones and e-mail addresses are their most reliable locators.
While I've seen more people my age carrying them as contact cards for a quick means to keep in touch after reunions, they're apparently quite fashionable amongst parents who refer to them as "mommy calling cards" or "playdate cards".

You can read the article on TIME or here on our site! Special thanks to Peter Hopkins, who was featured in the article and pens Crane's delightful blog - The Crane Insider, for pointing this out!
