What a perfect drop cap letter image to use for a business card! I could so see this vintage drawing of the letter S being used that way. With the easily seen letter S, the ivy leaves and the long tendril going across the top it just seems perfect to use as part of someone’s branding. This fancy letter S image is in the public domain, so you would have no worries about using it publicly.
