Greeting Cards printed by Moo

Thought I’d try out Moo’s greetings cards with a view to ‘seeing if I could do anything with my photos’ I’ve always been impressed with Moo (I’ve used them for business cards for a few years now). What’s really fun is that you can have a different picture on each card if you want. As I’ve been focusing on Lepidoptera this year (apart from one bird card made for a friend) I’ve used 23 different butterfly pictures. The process is really easy. You choose the pictures to upload (you can upload from your computer or pull them in from Flickr, etc). I prefer to upload though. Once the upload is complete you can tweak the crop, zoom etc and it warns you if the resolution is too low. Then you can add a message to the inside of the card if you want – I left mine blank. You can also add a small picture and/or a couple of lines of text to the back. Then you choose how many sets you want and which envelopes you want, pay and you’re done.

Then (in this case a week later) your cards are delivered.

It says Yay! on the box – always a bonus 🙂

And here it is open. The contents are covered in a sheet of brown paper. The cards had a protective card over the top and bottom and a paper band wrapped around them.

And here are the cards. They have a very light satin coating and the insides are uncoated.

Rather swish, n’est-ce pas?

    • Hi. The quality is fine – the cards are coated in quite a matt finish, so they come across more eco/recycled than glossy and luxurious. The printing is good, but the big advantage is that you can buy 25 cards at a time and they can all be different images. In the UK a 25-card set is about £25 with postage, so £1 a card. You would be able to get cheaper elsewhere, but you’d probably have to either buy in bulk or you’d only be able to have one image at a time. Hope that helps.
