Hoban Cards

Nate Burgos of DesignFeast pointed me to a true gem today: Hoban Cards is a fantastic letterpress calling card printing service by Evan Calkin. To get your own Hoban Card all you have to do is choose from six designs, enter your name, email or phone number, check out via paypal and then wait for them to show up at your doorsteps! Each calling card is hand printed on a 1902 Chandler and Price letterpress. For an affordable $75 you get 100 personalized cards printed on 100% 110lb cotton paper. Here’s Evan’s press in action:

These would make an amazing gift! I might just order a batch for myself…

  1. Not only are his cards gorgeous, he’s a great guy to deal with. I have a custom order with him that should be here next week. If you’re thinking of getting business cards, give him a call or an email.

  2. After reading this post and checking out the link, I wanted a calling card but wasn’t sure what they were for (vs business cards). Thought I’d share this very thorough explanation from the Art of Manliness blog: http://artofmanliness.com/2008/09/07/the-gentlemans-guide-to-the-calling-card/
