Best Business Card Holders
While many people carry their business cards in their wallets, that’s not going to cut it for your upcoming networking event or business trip. Using your wallet to store business cards can result in bent corners or faded print, leaving the recipient with a less-than-perfect impression of you and your business. That being said, it’s time to invest in a business card holder or case. Let’s get started!
1. Leather & Stainless Steel Multi-Card Case
It’s elegant and sturdy, yet still lightweight and its interior pockets have the capability to hold note cards, business and personal cards, or ID and credit cards. Best of all, it comes in a seriously wide range of colours to suit every style, from classic black to snappy teal and beyond.
2. Personalized Leather Business Card Case
A card case that fits perfectly in a blazer pocket is a big win in our books!
This one can be personalized with an engraving, which is the perfect way to jazz up a simple card case and impress colleagues. Choose from seven colors to go with any outfit or complement the brand colours of your business. You know, so you’re literally be ‘on-brand’ at all times!

5. Personalized Gunmetal Business Card Holder
This cool gunmetal-styled case features a sleek finish with a raised ladder border for extra sharp appeal. And just like a holster for a gun, this holder will give him easy access to his most lethal weapons. Ahem, we’re talking about his business cards, of course.
Engrave the front, back, and/or inside of the case with his initials, job title, special text, or favorite quote.
