Thanks to Margaux’s response to my post about the best business cards, this post is now happening! I was just going to post photos of the new cards I’d ordered from Moo so you could see them too. Then Margaux said in addition to seeing the new Moo cards and their design she’d really like to see the before and after.
Eek! She had no idea what she was asking. She wanted to see a little piece of my imperfect unfinished journey. And look backwards at where I’d been?? Margaux is a designer at M & J Design Bureau My first reaction was no, just no. I’d then want to try to explain that even these new cards aren’t quite perfect and I was already visualizing an updated look and…
I took a deep breath and asked myself What if I did? Could it possibly help encourage someone else? I think I know the answer.
Here they are, the poor old cards that got left home more often that not because they were not perfect.
Look at the poor guy on the right, a little ride in a damp pocket on a humid Tennessee day made the ink run.
And Here are the After cards! They arrived in a cute little Moo box.
By the time I photographed this I’d already given away a lot of cards.
I ordered the Moo Original card stock. I was pretty happy with it. It’s got a smooth feel to it. And I found out if it sits in a sweaty pocket on a humid southern day the ink does not run! Yay!
My favorite part! Here, I ordered three different looks for the back of the card. I could just see this working so well for say a hair salon.You could put the salon logo on the front and the back could be printed with each HMA’s name. So many possibilities.
Moo also sent along their sample pack.
In cute little packaging.
I really like being able to touch and feel all the textures. I decided against ordering any of the unique shaped and sized cards. Not because I think standing out is a bad idea, but because of my own OCD. I like all the cards I receive and wish to save for future reference to fit in a neat stack.
I really like the eye-catching color seams they offer. Plus the Luxe paper is so nice and thick.
I still kinda like the square moo business cards anyway. And I can tell you the exact name of everyone I’ve ever received a square card from.
I only ordered 50 so I can put in another order soon and might just go with square!
