Today I received a parcel I was already eagerly waiting for: my very own business cards.
Part of my personality is that I love to be or at least feel prepped for anything, so that no situation can catch me off guard. I really like to plan and organize, mainly to avoid any unexpected surprises…this isn’t always helpful I must admit, but that’s me. This is why I decided to create my own business cards – not like I would desperately need them taking the current size of my blog into account – but at least I’m now prepared for whoever I might encounter along the way.
To my relief, they turned out even better than I expected. Let me tell you a little more about my experience with http://www.moo.com . Just FYI: I paid the normal price, so this is not paid advertising – I am just truly satisfied with their service and hence want to share this with you + a little goodie at the end.
First of all, Moo offers a great variety of beautiful ready-to-use designs, however I decided to go for the second option: to completely design my own layout. That way I was flexible enough to realize the ideas I had in mind and achieve a 100% individual and unique layout.
At first I was a little skeptical whether I would technically be able to create my own design, as Moo.com states that they would only recommend this to design professionals and those who have a sound knowledge of graphic software. I’m really not used to working with Photoshop and the like (as mentioned before, I don’t beautify my pictures) and I still didn’t have any problems creating my own design. However, my concerns were needless as Moo provides you with templates that make the design process super simple. If you have a specific image in mind, I can really recommend trying yourself as a graphic designer J You can even order a sample for free to see how the printed version of your card would turn out (you only have to pay for shipping). This test-run reduces the risk of ending up with hundreds of well… not-so-pretty cards in case you really don’t have a feeling for graphic design.
I chose the original business cards with a smooth matte finish and rounded corners – the haptic is truly something special. One thing I loved most about my experience with Moo was Printfinity – this amazing feature lets you upload up to 50 different photos for each business card backside. Hence you end up with a mini portfolio of your work in your pocket.
Of course Moo.com is certainly not the cheapest option on the market and as I haven’t tried any other vendor, I can’t draw any comparisons. Nevertheless, I can say that I am 100% satisfied with the quality of the outcome, the easy design creation and the intuitive order process.
What put the cherry on the cake was that I signed up for Moo’s newsletter a while ago and hence was informed about their 25% sale. Sure that I grasped the opportunity J – who doesn’t like a sale?
If this made your fingers itch and you can’t wait to create your own business cards now, make sure to use this link to enjoy 10% off your order!
