Circa Business Card Holder
Better than I thought!
I was very hesitant to buy this based on the previous reviews. But, for only $9, I thought I would give it try. I was pleasantly surprised and I really like this product. It holds the business cards securely and there's no chance of them falling out, even if you drop your portfolio. I don't need to pull out the cards frequently, so I really like the design of this holder. I doubled up each slot and it was easy to get them into the holder. My only request would be that they sell a multi-pack. (maybe 2 for $15?) I doubt most people only need one business card holder, and I'm definitely going to order a few more!

I just got this and was surprised and disappointed by what I got. Actually, it's my own fault for not reading the product description or reviews before ordering. I saw business card holder and "assumed" I would get an open slot, easy in, easy out, card holder. Instead, I got this seemingly well built, but over engineered piece of plastic. I was looking for speedy access to business cards, frequent flyer cards, etc; however, this is designed to defy any attempts at speed or efficiency.
In summary, it is well made but doesn't suit my needs. Unfortunately, it's barely worth the cost to ship it back, so I'll probably store it for a year or so and then toss it the next time I see it. To me it's the classic design error: an $8 solution to a $2 problem.

Circa Letter Size Card Holder
The business card holder that doesn't hold business cards. The plastic sleeves are not long enough. I had to turn my cards sideways, which is stupid. Don't waste $8.

A must have!
I absolutely love the Circa Business Card Holder. I have two in my calendar notebook - one in front, one in back. This is perfect place to store the business cards from the doctor's office, the spa, the dentist, the car service department, your favorite restaurants, the bank, etc. When you are scheduling appointments, you have your calendar and the phone number right at your finger tips. This is also a wonderful place to store the cards of your colleagues as well. This is a must have for your Circa Notebook! Inserting the cards in the upside down pockets is a little ackward at first, yet becomes second nature in just a moment. I also agree that the card holder makes the notebook bulkier. Make sure to order larger rings too.

Great for Travel Cards
This is a great addition to your Circa notebook. Not only do I use it for business cards but it works great to store your travel cards such as hotel and airline rewards programs.

Business Card Holders another great Levenger idea
Love my business card holders for my Circa Junior, however would suggest you double the capacity by putting the same # of holders on the front as on the back. While the flat panel is sturdy, it seems a waste to not have it be double-sided.

Most useful item
A friend saw my Circa business card holder and commented on its usefulness, so I bought a couple for a present for her and she was very grateful.

These are not very functional. They are upside down from a manafacturing standpoint. I've tried turning these every which way and they just are not made correctly. We are major Levenger fans but this product is not very good.

I don't get it
I got this, and when I tried to put business cards in it -- the standard size wouldn't fit. (I bought the letter size.) Maybe I'm not doing it right, but how do you get the cards to fit in there? The openings are not wide enough, as far as I can see.

Levenger Can Do Better
The Circa notebook is beautiful. I bought the Junior edition to use as a business card holder. Alas, I find it annoying that the individual business card pockets overlap; that all cards on a single page can't be viewed at a glance. I'd also prefer it if the cards were displayed horizontally rather than vertically. I bought several insert sheets thinking the notebook would hold more cards. The notebook only accommodates 2 to 3 plastic sheets. I'm keeping the book itself to use as a notebook but won't be using it as a business card holder.
