Cards arrived!

Yay! My order of new business cards from Moo arrived today! I was confused in this post when I said they would be here last Friday. Due to my curmudgeonly views on shipping costs, the cards were supposed to take two weeks to arrive but they ended up only taking a week and a half, so that was a nice surprise! Opening the packaging was an experience, as I believe it was intended. The cards arrived in this lovely magnetic storage box.


Isn’t that nice? Don’t you want to open that box? Here’s what the inside looked like.


Those are the edges of my extra-thick luxe cards. So as not to go into debt, I ordered the mini size. I like the size and wanted to keep the cards very minimal anyway.

Here are what said cards actually look like.


Like I said, very minimal—but perfect to hand out and I can write my number or other info quickly if I want someone to have it. I also ordered a handy dandy carrying case.


The case itself is lovely, but only holds 7 of the extra-thick cards. An oversight on my part. Also, I am a weenie about putting a key ring through anything a quarter inch thick (don’t want to!) That said, the case will keep my cards nice while they’re floating around in my purse and I don’t regret the investment.

So my final thoughts are that I’m very pleased with my cards and will reorder when I give all of these away. Moo is pricer than the competition and some of that cost goes into their fancy presentation, so I would recommend buying more than 100 cards at a time to spread that cost out. If you want a standard size business card on regular weight paper, go with another company. I’ve had good luck with OvernightPrints.com. However if, like me, you are attracted to Moo’s specialty sizes and treatments, go for it! The mini cards are affordable, especially in the normal weight and the company is a delight to work with. They also let you print multiple images on your cards.

Now for a bit of shameless promotion: Click this link to receive 15$ off your first order from Moo, and I will get 15$ off too! Nice!
