Inspiration: vintage business cards

I found these cards on the internet some time ago. I was in love, I needed them, no I wanted them! So after careful negotiation, they were mine for the amazing amount of €2,50. A bargain!
But I love these, the letterpress vintage printing on these small businesscards. The typo I love! Nothing like Arial or Times New Roman. They are simple, yet elegant. It made me want to have my own business cards!
These probably came out of someone's collection from when a dear one passed away, since most of them have written on them "with sincere condolences". I think they are from the forties or fifties, I can't really decipher the postagemark.
But what a great era, when you just send your own business cards to someone.
