More than just ‘cards’

30th March 2009 by Denise

Those who subscribe to the MOO Newsletter*, will have seen that last week we were talking about different things you can do with your cards, over and above the ‘usual’.

Of course you can use them as regular business cards (that’s what they are, after all!) but we’ve spotted some people using both MOO MiniCards and Business Cards as a form of packaging for small, handmade items.

We mentioned these beautiful bobby pins, mounted on MiniCards, for sale by Nestdecorating:

And since then, we’ve spotted a few more examples…

These colourful buttons made by Polka Dot Cottage are hand-stitched to Business Cards

and ready for the yarn shop

These ceramic clay magnets by Lauren Denny are also attached to Business Cards, and ready to sell at a Handm@de Fair

We’ve seen MiniCards used to great effect at craft fairs in the past, like the ones in this shot, used to mount earrings, made by Julie Bug Designs:

And even used as simple hang tags, like these, by Claudes Creations

So, the question is: what are you doing with *your* cards?

    Thanks for mentioning my buttons! I love moo cards. I’ve been using the mini cards as hang tags for the jewelry & accessories I make for some time. They always get a positive reaction – people think they’re “cute” :-)

  2. Denise:

    Hi Lisa – no problem – we love them! They look so smart. The design works perfectly too.

    i use the business cards for promotionwith details on one side and a picture of my artwork on the other-and sell them as ‘pocket money buys’ with a page of stickers attached(printed with my paintings on)-they sell like hot cakes!
    i love moo!!
