Just posting a short review on the Moo MiniCards I ordered a short while back. I had seen them before online and thought they were cute, but at the time I didn’t need business cards. Then I recently saw a 50% off deal on these Moo cards on Moolala, (a deal site similar to Groupon) and I decided to make some business cards for my blog. The cards come in packs of 100 and are double-sided, full color on both sides and printed on a satin finish premium paper with a matte laminate coating. The cards are normally $19.99, but with the deal, I received 50% off, so in all I paid $10.00 plus $5.00 for standard shipping,
What makes these cards stand out, is you can have 100 different images on each of the 100 cards if you choose. I ended up selecting about 30 images, so I ended up with about 3 of each. On the reverse, I put my PhotoBookGirl contact info. I don’t know if you can tell from this photo, but my logo is a little blurry, but that’s my fault cause I was in a bit of a rush and couldn’t find the PDF file for my logo before my coupon was going to expire. I hate being in a time crunch, don’t you?
I found the online interface easy to navigate and it was very easy to upload my photos and center them on the card the way I wanted the images to appear. Since these cards are narrow, you’re going to lose a significant part of the entire image, so you do have to take a little time to figure out which part you want to show. The cards come in a presentation box which is nice because they showcase the cards well, but it can be a bit bulky to carry.
I think these cards are ideal for photographers, artists, graphic designers etc. who may want the flexibility of choosing more than one image for their cards – like a mini portfolio. The uses for these cards are not limited to just business cards, you can use these MiniCards as gift tags, favor tags for weddings, informational tags for products etc.
The cards are not cheap and you can certainly find a cheaper place to print business cards, but the option to choose 100 different images, the paper quality and four color printing on both sides are upgrades that you expect to pay more for.
So far, everyone I’ve shown my cards to have loved them – the main problem is they want more than one card because they like all the different images. At that rate, I’m going to run out pretty fast!
