I’ve been organizing my contact lists virtually for years now…was an early adopter of the palm pilot and did cart wheels when smartphones made an appearance (well, I’m actually not that limber but I was cart wheeling in my head…believe that). I don’t however; toss cards after inputting the info in my iPhone or outlook contacts. I love how each card has been designed for a purpose, a brand image…the font, the logo, even the colors chosen. At the day job, I organize my cards in a pink Rolodex that screams big box office supplies emporium. For home, I’d like something a little more etsy…
This card file by Richelle of rfrantzdesign in Ohio has great retro graphic art on it’s dividers and the handcrafted case is an industrial beautiful dark wood.
A vintage industrial Rolodex (with many metal parts…today’s version is all plastic) might be just the thing for the top of my vintage card catalog drawers. From NowVintage in Oregon.
One of my favorite trends for weddings is having a quaint or pretty card organizer at the reception table. Initially, it will keep your table cards organized, at the end it will be filled with short notes from your guests and completed address cards in lieu of a guest book (and unlike a traditional guest book, you can continue to use it…genius). Cut the Cake Designs has some of the best. As a self proclaimed library loving geek, I adore this card catalog drawer but am also tempted by the vintage floral dividers in her simple wood box option.
