Jotter cards

Both Crane and Dempsey & Carroll make what they call Jotter Cards which are basically the size of a 3 x 5 index cards on exquisite paper. I think Crane prints theirs, and D & C engrave theirs. American Stationery has some, which they call Chits, and can be thermographed or letterpressed.

Does anyone use anything like these? What do you use them for? Are they simply the equivalent of a really expensive scratch pad for shopping lists?

I don't have any, and never have had, but off the top of my head...

Revision notes
Cue cards for speeches
Research index cards (bookmark you can write page and paragraph references on)
Task management "to do" cards
Thank you notes for online sellers
"If found, please return to..."
Recipe cards

A little poofier than I prefer
Never heard of “Jotter cards”, but it’s a cool idea. Sounds like what most people use sticky notes for. I also like pocket notebooks for that sort of thing.

I was actually thinking about something along these lines today. I have a history of using just about anything at hand for bookmarks, like business cards that are no longer current.

My first thought was to buy a new set of personal cards, then I realized that I would also want room to make notes since I have a dislike of writing in my books. So, maybe some semi personalized lined jitters might be in my future.

"which they call Chits"

We used chitties when I was a young apprentice engineer. If you needed anything from the stores you'd get a chity from the shift foreman and then hand it in at the stores. About the size of an old pack of 20 smokes. Ah the good old days.
 
I have some from Levenger similar to these but personalized.


Nice to have for quick notes when out and about.

Sounds like they'd be great for "thank you" notes when you don't really have anything to say other than "thanks for the thing, it was great!"

Seems kind of silly writing that on an *' x 11" and leaving the rest blank.
