    Moo Cards! {Part 2: Sharing the Cards}

    Welcome to the story of my moo card order.

    To catch up, check out Moo Cards! {Part 1: What to Print}

     

    Moo asked me to test a bunch of products and share my feedback. I'm often asked to review products and almost never do it, unless I feel super duper confident that the quality is going to be fabulous. So I ordered MOO business cards, mini cards and stickers through the regular process, and received the products free. The upload process is super zippy and simple. After you place your order, Moo sends a nifty confirm, and keeps you in the loop about ship dates and expected receipt dates. Everything arrived quickly and accurately.

    When they arrived I fell in love with every.single.thing.

    For the business cards and moo cards, I ordered eco-cards {100% recycled, recyclable and biodegradable paper} and they are dreamy. I've always preferred matte over glossy photos. I love the feel of the heavy paper. The color is spot on. If you make 90 business cards, for example, you can upload 90 unique photos or any number and get several of them. So if you order 90 and upload 10, you'd get 9 of each. If you upload 20, I think you'd get 4 of each and 5 of some. The backs are all the same, and can include a little photo too!

    When I put them out on the table, my daughters swooped in and wanted a bunch of the cards -- some of themselves, the dog, familly, abstract artsy ones.

    As for what to do with the cards, check out {Part 1: What to Print}.  The idea is to use moo cards as enclosures when I sell art, do a swap, trade journal fodder, anything like that. I can put some on my inspiration board too, and the kids see them as little collections. I'm thinking for my next set, instead of saying Daisy Yellow etc on the back I'll something like "Best Wishes, Tammy" so that I can use them as gift enclosures. Not as a substitute for a card, just a little extra. I'd like to use moo cards as art journal fodder and as I add images to pages I'll let you know. They would be used the same way that I use prints from the pogo printer, that elegant funky rectangle.

    All in all a splendid experience. My mind is already scheming on the next order.

    I can see how easily this would be to fall in love with!! Wow!! Absolute creativity!! Please help me here...what would you use these for? Do you give them out? Display them? I would love to do this but hesitate because I don't know what I'd use them for. Thanks Tammy for my visual-fix this afternoon <3

    {Tammy}: Eden, I forgot to add a link back to Part 1 where I described a bunch of plans I had for the cards. I went back and added to the post, thank you for the question.

    They look terrific Tammy - I have quite a few handmade MUKKA dolls to sell at the market and I can see the Moo cards would make wondeful enclosures. I really need to work on my photography skills so I can send for some! I checked out their website and it looks quite straight forward to use. Thanks!

    I love my mini MOO cards! I use them for art purposes and Mommy cards too. I am afraid to get stickers. It could be such an addiction. They look wonderful Tammy.

    These look great and the stickers are so fun...I think the whole process of getting moo cards made could be addictive! I could do some with my art...with my kids' art...with my kids' photos...so many possibilities!
