Yay – Moo Cards!

Yay – Moo Cards!

They came! Lovely lovely moo cards.

I’m just thrilled. If you haven’t seen them yet go look at moo.com.

I paid for this batch of 100 – US$19.99 which translated to £10.84. They came nicely packaged with a postage cost of £1.27 so even with a couple of duds they still work out at less than 10p each. Fantastic.

I’m just not sure that I want to give them away….

  1. How do business cards work? Well the idea is that you give one of these little cards to people with whom you want to continue or build a business relationship. They have your name and contact details on, so that when the person wants to contact you, they can just look at the card and see your phone number or e-mail address.


    OK that’s not what you meant is it?

    Moo.com are offering business cards printed on-demand. They have linked up with flickr, the photo-sharing site and you get to choose which of your photographs you’d like on one side of your cards. You can have 1 picture on 100 cards or 100 pictures on 1 card each or anything in between (I chose 10 x 10 – hilary clinton, snowman, waterloo bridge…etc) and you get to put in I think 4 or five lines of text on the other side.

    They are about half normal business card size – a long thin strip – a bit like a Paris metro ticket. They come in a matte finish on good business card stock and I love them very much.

    The first one I gave out was one with Hilary Clinton with a beard to someone that I was interviewing yesterday.

    If you have a flickr pro account you can get a sample of 10 cards free – which was where I started, but once I’d used the interface and got an idea of what was coming I decided that I could blow a tenner without waiting to see what the samples looked like.

  2. Thanks Lloyd. I am much clearer now – I had no idea what you used business cards for, apart from dropping them into an empty giant whisky bottle in a futile attempt to win a meal for 2 at your local indian restaurant!!

  3. I discovered these the other day. It’s awesome that you actually got some of them. So, they are evidently all they’re supposed to be? All pretty and stuff? If so, I am going to order them, eventually, too!! 😀

  4. TD – yours would be beautiful I’m sure – the only tip I’d give is to choose sharp pictures with relatively high contrast – the finish is matte and some of mine look a bit underexposed and washed out – but then they were taken with a cameraphone! 🙂

  5. Thank you for the information and the tip, Lloyd!! I’ll keep that in mind when choosing the pics for the cards. The other night, I sat down and went through the motions, as though I was going to purchase the cards then. (Sorted through and picked the photos, etc…so that I could get an idea of what they were all about.) After doing so, I decided to hold off a little while on purchasing them, but do have full intentions of doing so in the near future. 🙂 Thank you again.
