Calling Cards for Couples

When a couple uses a joint calling card, the home address is optional. The card is written as Mr. and Mrs. with the husband’s full name. Abbreviations are used only when necessitated by constrictions of length. In this case options include leaving out a middle name, using an initial, or abbreviating a title such as Rev. for The Reverend. If both are doctors, you can use The Doctors Peterson, Doctors Judith Peterson and Michael Peterson, or Dr. Judith Holmes and Dr. Michael Peterson. In the last instance, Dr. is used because of length. If only the husband is a doctor, it’s Doctor and Mrs. Michael Peterson. If only the wife is a doctor, it’s Doctor Judith Peterson (or Holmes) and Mr. Michael Peterson.
