  If you need blank cards, call a local IBM office and ask for them.
They'll probably give you all you can carry. A friend of mine that works
for IBM says he's got about 100,000 sitting in his office. Lots of other
businesses also used to use them and have tons laying around. Banks, phone
company offices, utility companies, computer services, etc. I've been
given piles of them over the years. I use them for notes, fire starters, etc.
