Something to Moo about

3 Comments

I usually don’t post stuff like this, but I love this company and have sung its praises many times over the past two years. I’ve ordered three sets of business cards from them, and I did research paper and presentation on them when I was studying ecommerce.

You’ve probably heard of them, but maybe not. They’re Moo, and they produce amazing customized business cards. You can create an account and do all your designing right on the site. You can even upload photos so all the cards are different. I uploaded some of my Instagram shots for one batch, and they’re really cool-looking.Moo mini cards

If you’re a writer, photographer, designer or recovering journalist, this is a great way to produce a business card that leaves an impression.

  1. Hear, hear! I got some business cards from them (offer from Klout) and they are very cool (except that they say Klout). But now that I am more settled here CH, I’ll order some proper ones. What resolution-ish do the images have to be so they appear nicely on the cards?

    • I got mine through an About.Me offer, and I think they’ll say “Moo” on them, which is fine by me. (I was just excited to take advantage of the offer.) The recommended size was 1039 x 697 pixels; the minimum size is 333 x 223 pixels. The max file size of each photo is 50MB, and they can use hi-res GIFs and PNGs. The interface is super-savvy, and the software will tell you if the resolution isn’t optimal. A couple of my Instagram photos I wanted to use would not have reproduced properly, and I got a message telling me so.
