Win Some Awesome Cards from MOO

MOO

MOO.com has offered to give away a great set of prizes to five of our readers. If you’re not familiar with MOO, they print custom business cards and postcards with Printfinity technology, which allows you to put different images on each card. Their cards are perfect for creative designers because they print in high quality and because of the Printfinity technology, which allows you to showcase work from your portfolio on your cards.

They have pre-made designs that you can choose from, or you can use your own work by uploading it or importing from Flickr. If you’re looking for something that will be more interesting and impressive than a traditional business card, MOO is an excellent option.

    I’d use Printfinity by having a different Photoshop shortcut or tip on the back to keep them memorable and useful. Thanks for the contest!

    These would make a perfect gift for a friend of mine who just graduated with a degree in painting. She doesn’t have any cards currently and could put pictures from her portfolio on them.

    Giveaway:
    I’d like to begin by saying that I am a big fan of the posts on the Designm.ag Community. Thank you.

    I would use MOO’s Printfinity technology to show case different types of Photo, Design, and Ad work that I do on different cards. This would engage the people with what I do a little more by allowing them to choose a card and/or give them a specific card tailored to their needs.

    I would take advantage of being able to print different images on each card by offering this type of design and photo service to everyone that likes my MOO cards.

    Thank you,
    -Aldo

    I would use these card to help promote my photography and graphics design. I would pick out a set of my favorite images and digital works from my portfolio and get them printed to the cards. Display some of my information on the back of the cards and hand them out in public to help gain new business and work for myself. I currently do not have any business cards and these would greatly help me.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Nice I need some new business cards.

    Where do I begin? I’m a portrait painter, commercial and wedding photographer, and graphic designer. To be able to have cards that I could give out to someone based on the service most valuable to them while still having a cohesive set of cards would be so useful

  7. May 6, 2009

    I have a 3 or four images that show how we are different from out competitors (i.e. a picture of 3 teddy bears reminds us that one size doesn’t fit all, and a picture of a college graduate emphasizes that we were students with disabilities before we began working as consultants to Disability offices). We could also print cards with before and after screen shots of our web design projects.

    Printing a series of these unique cards would be an excellent way to make these points very quickly with potential clients, and to reinforce them with existing clients.

    Ooh! Hope I win!

  9. May 6, 2009

    cool.. count me in.. 😀

  10. May 6, 2009

    My passion in life is producing images, both with a paintbrush and with my camera. If I had business cards that could contain my different images I could choose which card I would give to the person asking for a card. It would also be like carrying a mini-portfolio which is a very cool concept! Isn’t it wonderful what technology is doing for creativity! I must admit that i do not live in USA but right on the border in Canada and I have a US post box! so I hope that it counts and I can be included in this contest.

  11. May 6, 2009

    There are so many things that can be done…but the biggest thing I would do would be to get my daughters different pictures printed as she is the biggest source of inspiration for me. She encourages me and she makes me feel motivated all the time…

    MOO is awesome. I’ve seen their product and have an interest in using them in the future. As a freelance start-up photographer, being able to hand out business cards with the right image to the right client is a perfect idea. It beats having a company print out 500 business cards of one image and having to do it over and over with a different image to showcase that you can do weddings, seniors, families, etc. It can get very costly, this company is looks easy to use and professional and offers a product that is different compared to all other business card companies.

  14. May 6, 2009

    Oooh, these sound perfect. I would use them to print several of my watercolors as a portfolio OR it would be really fun to use them as a sort of calling card. Thanks for the great contest!

    I’ve already used some of their products for personal uses but as a photographer, I would love to be able to use their products to expand my freelance work. And honestly, I would also love to send out different photos to family members and friends to help keep in touch with them throughout the years as our family grows.

  16. May 6, 2009

    Thanks for the offer. Hope I’ll get one this time.

  17. May 6, 2009

    I have 2 ideas:

    • For my freelance design business cards: Take the 5 sides of my work desk/area (5 = all four sides + top/birds-eye view) and recreate/stack them up into a 3D box when going to client meetings. only problem is I can’t do this when outside but can say I view my creative process from all sides. (I know, I know… but some clients will buy it)

    •• For my motion graphics: Take 10-20 frames (depending how many I can get printed) from a motion design clip and create a tiny flip book on the back of my business cards. I will flip animate for my clients and then ask what part of my story they want to be a part of. (again, I know I know… I’m full of velvety cheesiness. Thank you sleep deprivation)

    I am a designer and anthropologist, and I was recently laid off from a design consultancy. I am networking for freelance work while I’m looking for another permanent position, but I haven’t made business cards yet.

    I would use MOO’s Printfinity technology to put images from my portfolio on the back side: details of process work, analysis, synthesis, candid shots from design research, finished products, etc.

  19. May 6, 2009

    I would use MOO’s Printfinity technology to put images from my “Side View Mirrors Project” on each card to promote the project.

    The project is essentially a catalog of images of people in their cars through their side view mirror. These images are captured surreptitiously during normal driving encounters.

  20. May 6, 2009

    If I was able to use Moo’s Printfinity technology, I would be able to present client-specific cards to each client. A client wanting photography services would rather see a card with a creative photograph, as opposed to a picture of my print design work. By having unique cards, a client immediately sees the creativity and flexibility that I possess. I would be able to give my clients a new card each time, increasing interest and cash flow!

  21. May 6, 2009

    Nice!!!

  22. May 6, 2009

    I really like moo business cards, I already have them. As I’m a mtb photographer, it’s nice to have business cards showing the right picture for the right client; xcountry, singletrail, dirt, downhill, freeride, fixies, etc. Especially the “green” cards are nice, they really feel like good, strong paper!

    My sister (15 years old) has recently started her own tie-dye shirts business at LoveTieDye.com. I built the website for her, helped her figure out the costs of producing the shirts and the price at which she should sell them. I’m also her photographer and photo editor.

    Neither of us have a ton of money to spend on marketing, and we’ve been relying on word-of-mouth so far. MOO’s services of printing unique images to each card would allow us to print some of her photos to use as one side of her business card and her website and contact info on the other side. She would be able to distribute these to her classmates where tie-dye seems to be a pretty big hit (and one of the reasons for starting this business).

    In addition, I’ll be going to two very large electronic music events near the end of the month. With her own MOO cards, I’d be able to help her kick-start her hand-dyed shirt business and push past this initial hurdle of a new business without much exposure.

    These look great. As a photographer with different specialties, I could showcase different types of work on different cards, to give to different prospective clients.

  25. May 6, 2009

    Great idea! I’d design some different business card type flyer things, and get them all printed to promote my company! If not that, I’m planning on make a handheld portfolio soon, which would be postcard size and turned into a fold up book.. kinda hard to explain but it’d look awesome!

  26. May 6, 2009

    I would use these business cards for contact information and a reminder. As a system architect I would put useful syntax highlighted code samples where strings and variable names described what I do…

    Since I’m a freelancer these would be handed to both potential team partners and clients.

  27. May 6, 2009

    I recently started my company and I need to save some money.
    I’d use moo to print my business card.

  28. May 6, 2009

    I’m a photographer (also just started), so I could use some nice portfolio-cards.
    Thnkz for the offer!

    I’m about to open a very small art gallery where me and 3 friends will display our work. How cool would it be to get a set of cards where each artist could have their own picture. Love that idea. Love those cards.

  31. May 6, 2009

    I’d like to design some business cards with contact data on the front side and examples of my works on the other side.

    Callum Chapman got a nice idea of using moocards, too.

    After years as an amateur photographer I am finally starting my own photo business. Being able to use this technology would allow me to print cards with a variety of different images – anything from landscapes to macro work – that would let me customize which card I would send to which publisher. This would be a great boon to my fledgling business.

  33. Rae
    May 6, 2009

    Truthfully, I’m more interested in the random drawing for the mini cards, as I can think of a few different things to use them for gifts for a few weddings and birthdays that are approaching. Although I could do the same with the larger cards, I suppose. The ability to print different images on different cards opens up the possibility for some very cool personalized gifts.

    Or, to be selfish, I’d love to use them for myself to either create a design that both stands alone as well as spanning multiple cards, or use one side to showcase fun facts and quotes as something to make me stand out.

  34. Tim
    May 6, 2009

    I would use the cards to promote myself and Moo as well. I have used Moo in the past and they are excellent!

  35. May 6, 2009

    Each card would feature a 2 x 3.5 inch portion of my face… and clients can work together to reconstruct my portrait. Next, I’d use them as give-a-ways in cereal boxes for kids to collect and trade -like baseball cards… “Hey, I’ll trade you my ‘Kevin’s upper right cheek’ for your ‘Kevin’s left iris and eyebrow'” -Collect all 36!

    or maybe I could showcase my work.
    Its a toss-up.

    MOO has really cool thing goin’ on. I’ve been wanting to try them out.

  37. May 6, 2009

    These are great! I would use these as marketing material and samples to increase my business, which in turn, would increase my business with Moo. I`ll send them more of my print jobs.

    I`m in Canada. If I am eligible to win, I`ll pay for shipping.

    Just started a new tech consulting business. I could really use these

  39. May 6, 2009

    I would use the cards because I can never come up with just 1 design I like! Plus I don’t have any business cards yet!

  40. May 6, 2009

    I’d use the cards to advertise my illustration and design company. It would be great to be able to show more then one design

    I work for a large technology company as a graphic designer.

    We could use MOO’s Printfinity technology as a cost-effective way to highlight the various service and product offerings to select customers.

    Throughout history, we have been inspired by the profound insight of our poets, philosophers, storytellers, and bards. For most of my life, I’ve been convinced that modern wisdom is most often found in the lines and verses of our favorite music.

    To that end, I created the MNRV experiment ( http://twitter.com/MNRV ). Put simply, MNRV is an outlet for those wise, funny, and profound quotes. More than being a basic collection of lyrics (which can be had anywhere online), each of these lines is chosen by a small group of music fans, taken directly from the music we happen to be listening to at the moment. Each quote includes a link to the artist’s site (when available). We’ve already started a weekly contest (with un-google-able questions) and will begin a weekly “Twinterview” series (a 140 character, single question band interview).

    It’s a fun experiment and a great way to kill some time, but the bands I’ve talked to love the idea. Rather than leaving them a quick, hand-written note, it would be great to give them something a little more official. I would also love to litter the town (Portland, Oregon) with MNRV cards. The ability to use random, music-related photos on each card works perfectly with the spirit of MNRV.

  43. May 6, 2009

    When I started my freelance business, I search many companies tried to print cards online.

    After several days, and several contacts with other designers, they recommended me to MOO.
    I design into the site, ordered, and a week later had the cards in my hand.

    I was surprised by the quality and price.

    With these cards it has many jobs.

  44. May 6, 2009

    I am due to have a fresh batch of cards for my design business after a real revamp and this would be an ideal opportunity to show off some of my photo and design work to the masses !

  45. May 6, 2009

    I’d have a different card for each day of the week.

  46. Pablo Cordero
    May 6, 2009

    Thanks for the opportunity. If I win I would like to showcase different products and items in my portfolio on each card.

  47. May 6, 2009

    Wooah. I need these cards right now. Please?

  48. May 6, 2009

    I would use the technology to help promote local artists (bands). Each card could pull from a list of local musicians and showcase a live photo published by a patron from a show – the quality control of the images would be up to the artist, but the groups/artists wouldn’t know which final photo was used, or which photographer (patron) was chosen. Random, but still promotional for local artists. They can use all the help they can get. Once printed, the cards could be distributed all over town (perhaps, with upcoming show information or a contact?).

  49. May 6, 2009

    I’m trying to get my own business started so these would be so great. I’m a graphic designer and I plan to specialize in event design, so I would showcase different types of events/designs on the back of my cards. Thanks for the great offer!!

    I would love to win these cards I would use the to promote some of my pieces but first I would take them and build a card castle out of them so my pet spider Charlotte would have somewhere to live since her house was foreclosed on.

  51. May 7, 2009

    My small antique business could sure use great marketing concept. What am I talking about? This isn’t a concept — it’s reality! These cards are great! Customers could pick a card that reflects their taste and personality. I believe it would make them remember what they liked about my shop and keep them coming back for more!!

  52. May 7, 2009

    I would probably put a different PHP, WordPress, or design tip on each, along with a unique design or photo. I’d leave them in the computer-related books and magazines I check out from the local library, so the next to check the book out gets a bit of knowledge, and a link to find more.

  53. May 7, 2009

    it would be nice to use moo card as my handy portfolio. I dont have to bring a heavy photo album anymore and the coolest thing is I can show everyone each photograph I make.

  54. May 7, 2009

    I have a website but not moo card so I want them !

  55. May 7, 2009

    I’m a web and print designer who designs a lot of business cards.
    I have a female and a male website (www.stressfreedesign.com / http://www.veronikafreeman.com), a blog for women entrepreneurs (www.WEBlogMV.com), and a tips website (www.WorldWideWebmistress.com) – it would be great to be able to hand my clients a card that correlated to our discussion.
    I’d love to see how easy this process is, as I think I could sell them to my clients.

  56. May 7, 2009

    My boyfriend, a follow designer, and I are building a firm together and we’d love to get quality business cards to lure in clients.

  57. May 8, 2009

    First of all, what a nice price !!
    I’m freelancer in graphic design and still studying (I’m never bored of learnign).
    I’m constantly looking for new clients and projects..
    That would be more than usefull to get a set of those awesome cards from MOO.
    Best luck to everyone =)

  58. May 8, 2009

    This would be perfect for promoting my new little side business (stationary & invitations). I could totally have photos of my invites on the cards! This would come in soooo handy since I don’t have any business cards yet!

  59. May 8, 2009

    Congratulations to Callum Chapman, Kevin, Jen, and Kerry. Great job to all!

  60. May 8, 2009

    On a side note, I love moo.com by the way. In any case, I would definitely use them to put my work on and possible bind together to make a nice look book. Just an idea. Thanks for the giveaway, good job guys!

  61. May 11, 2009

    I would love to show a bunch of my different art pieces in a card set. I always have a hard decided which new custom munny vinyl figure I want to feature. With Moo I can do the whole set!! AWESOME!

  62. August 6, 2009

    My wife likes to use moo for each wedding client she photographs. She picks some engagement pics to print on them and sets them out during the wedding for additional advertisement. We would definitely appreciate the discount. Thanks moo!
