Got my Moo cards today from http://www.moo.com/


And no, I don't get kickbacks... I just like the idea of being able to fork over a card to someone I meet while out shooting or at a karate event.

I just got some done, and love them too.

One thing to watch out for: I did a split image/text design for the back, and assumed the black background of the text would match the (pure) black on the image I used, so it would blend seamlessly. The text's background printed a little lighter, so there is a seam.

For my next batch, I've already designed up a full-card image with the text and picture I want on it. You'll get a lot more control over the fonts and layout this way, I'd recommend for anyone doing cards there to take the time to do the back as a full image.

Nice cards iggy - I've seen lotsa moo cards and normally they are well done - pricey - but well done...convenient too.
I might just get a set.

Ha! Lol, I just got some done too! They are great! Thought they would be handy since I spend so much time in urban areas photographing. Give out a card and people are more accepting of you.

If you buy the cards there's no Moo.com on them is there?

No, just the text you specify and the pics you choose, Marco.

They are something of a phenomenon on flickr : click here (http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=all&q=moo+cards+&m=text)

Yeah I've been seeing them for well over a year now and actually ordered a sample pack that looks pretty good. Just wanted to triple confirm that if I pay there is no distracting advertising.

I think I'm going to give the notecards as Xmas gifts this year. I figure I'll print off a bunch of my photos and use the best ones of the year.

Almost handmade gifts and my family (especially my Mum) loves that sort of thing. Maybe do up a bunch of 2010 calendars as well.
I ordered some cards for a test run as well to see what they look like before I go ahead. Figure I'd put Professional Chef and Amateur photographer as my "title".

I just purchased photo quality blank business cards and made my own, much cheaper. I looked at the moo cards and had thought about getting them but at the rate I hand out cards these days it would cost me a small fortune. So I picked 20 photos I likes and set up my business card program to put a separate photo is each space, takes time to set up, and save the template and print them, and I put all my info on the back of the card. Just between the cost and the shipping to me it was just not worth it when I can do the same thing almost myself. If I didn't hand out as many cards as I do I would have got some.
