Yesterday I came home excited to see a tiny package waiting in my mailbox. Now I know this looks like a big old pile of pictures when in fact they are my new business cards. I've been putting of having cards made because of my lack of formal logo and website. Finally I said to myself, "This is stupid. People are always saying 'Do you have a business card?' " I like the idea of these because they are a photo and a business card all wrapped into one.

I had become enamored with skinny mini card at a photo trade show last spring. I ordered these through and on-line company called Moo. I found out about them from another photographer's blog and when I went to their sight I was thrilled to find the skinny mini. There is just something about this shape that I'm really into right now. I am even finding myself intentionally cropping my photos to a 5x10 ratio.

With Moo the cards are sold in batches of 100 and you can have up to 100 different images. Perfect for people like me, who find choosing their favorite photo is like choosing their favorite child. They also offer a variety of products including postcards, traditional business cards, greeting cards and accessories. I just LOVE the Mosaic Frame. How clever is that? They even have pre-designed cards that are oh so cute. I know I could come up with many uses for those guys. Check out their site and enjoy. The Moo Ideas page is fantastic. Their prices are reasonable, the turn around time was nothing out of the ordinary and I do say I'm impressed with the quality of the product. And let's face it. Who wouldn't like a company named Moo? It just sounds fun. Doesn't it?
I can't wait to start handing these out so I can order more.

(moo) :-)

Crys, they look GREAT. You are right they are fun. Leave it to you to find such a neat card. I will have to check out the web site. you often mention different places like this but it is nice to get a reminder on something like your blog where I won't loose the name
