I never saw myself as the mommy calling card type – you know, someone who would have a stack of cutesie little cards giving me a job title like "So-and-So’s Mommy" But then, I never saw calling cards like the ones from Hello Ink. These lightweight, glossy calling cards from designer Alison Hunter incorporate Havana Street clip art to funky effect. You’ll find cheeky retro designs like the working mom card shown here, modern silhouettes and monograms, and other stylish graphics. Plus I love how easily the fun designs lend themselves to clever job descriptions. From here on forward let yourself be known as Mother/Caffeine Addict, The One With the Formula-Stained Shirt, or PTA Black Sheep. They’re just $25 for a set of 100 which is definitely worth its weight in grocery receipts – you know, the calling cards you were using until you found these. –Liz

So please stop over, play some silly party games, and win some awesome prizes thanks to our sponsors who you’ve probably seen once or twice here on Cool Mom Picks. –Kristen
