Products, prices and ideas for printing with MOO

23rd November 2008 by Denise

We often talk about ‘Printfinity’ at MOO – which means a different photo or design on every Card or Sticker you make. It’s ideal for ‘pocket portfolios’: all of your images on hand when you need them, to show potential clients exactly what you can do.

Below is a list of details you might need for making your own pocket portfolio, along with a few other great ideas we’ve spotted along the way.


Business Cards

Price per pack:
Starter pack (50 Cards): $21.99/€15.09/£10.99
Networker pack (200 Cards): $69.99/€48.05/£34.99 (20% saving)

Paper stock:
MOO Classic: Matte laminated, sustainably sourced, 350gsm
MOO Green: Unlaminated, 100% recycled & recyclable, 300gsm

Size:
84mm x 55mm
3.3″ x 2.16″

Full bleed size – recommended for creating finished artwork:
1039 x 697 pixels (300dpi)
88mm x 59mm (300dpi)
3.46″ x 2.32″ (300dpi)

Ideas for using this product:
• Your portfolio in your pocket – a selection of your favourite images to carry around with you
• Business Cards to hand out at events, in your studio
• Mini fliers or leaflets for clients/buyers to pick up at exhibitions or events

Great ‘real life’ examples:
• A chance meeting gave photographer David Moore occasion to put his pocket portfolio to the test when he successfully secured himself a one man photography show. Read his account of the show set up, and the additional materials he used to make it work.

• Wedding photographer Tom Leuntjens uses MOO Business Cards as a very successful marketing idea, in conjunction with the weddings he shoots. When he makes a wedding album for a client he always includes a couple of their photos printed on his Business Cards. He knows the couple will pass them on, which advertises his services at the same time. Find out more, and see if this could work for you.

Using ‘Printfinity’ to the full, she can make cards for different clients at the same time, and use the same back for each.

    Is anyone thinking of introducing bespoke, uploaded calenders?

  2. Louis Roeder:

    Being new to Moo, it would have been useful if the dpi of 300 could be stated on the homepage. Not knowing this most of the scans I uploaded were only 200. Hopefully the images are OK!

  3. Naamah:

    This information needs to be immediately accessible from the front page of Moo, and it needs to be listed on the individual product pages, which it isn’t. I should not have to go offsite and do a search to find your prices. That is not cool.
