Hurrah for Moo Cards!

Ever since Andree from are you gonna eat that? told me that she carries Moo Cards around with her in case restaurant staff question her photo taking, I thought it’d be handy to have some cards of my own. Something with my blog information would have come in handy when we were reproached by the manager at Hundred last year.

It took me a while, but I finally placed an order, and received them on Friday. They arrived in a small recycled plastic box along with a label that would have allowed me to send them back should they not have been to my liking.

My Mini Moo cards

At around $35 Canadian for 100 cards, they were more expensive than conventional business cards, but I was able to choose a full-colour photo to include on one side. Also, the weight of the cardstock is nice and heavy, and the smooth finish on both sides really sets the cards apart from the typical matte style seen. The only downsides were not being able to choose the size of the font on the text side, and not having the option of a non-white background. In hindsight, I probably should have included my e-mail on the card, but for the most part, they will be a great thing to hand out when need be.

  1. Aren’t Moo cards great? The mini ones stand out very well, especially against standard cards. They’re always keepers.

  2. Moo cards are great. The higher expense is based on having unique images on every single card and the quality/weight of the card stock. Usually, typical card printers will only allow one for each side, because it’s less labour to set up.

    Meanwhile, you can upload completely custom designs on either side, so if you have Photoshop and the dimensions of the card, you can mockup whatever color, type, background you want. But not everyone has PS. ๐Ÿ™‚ You could always ask your neighborhood designer… (whistles)… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Lea – I had no idea that you could customize the other side. Maybe I will have to enlist the help of a designer when I run out of cards :).

    Bellavino – the cards are printed in London, and the ETA was 5-7 business days. They arrived to me in a week.
