MOO Aggregated Reviews
Mine’s just a doodle contact card using the Moo rounded cardstock. The paper feels quite nice.
Moo offers a 30% discount on a very regular basis just from emails, so a discount isn’t much incentive. A very long time ago, maybe 2006ish, Etsy partnered with Moo to give free cards to everyone who ordered, which was pretty awesome. It wasn’t a lot of cards, like 50, but it seems like everyone I personally know who uses Moo cards is someone that was able to get free cards back then so I think it worked out for them in the long term.
Moo makes lovely cards, but $165 for 600 is outrageous.
Moo’s cards are in a different class. The quality is like a mini fine art print on heavy cardstock, and you can make every card in your order a different image. Back when I was doing stained glass, I ordered from Moo because nothing else had the quality to represent my art. At craft fairs people would gush about my cards, and they’d go through the stack to choose the one they liked best – sometimes even asking for two because they couldn’t decide. I guarantee those cards didn’t get tossed or just end up lost forever in the bottom of a purse. Definitely worth the premium price.
I’m doing decals now, and I order from a place even cheaper than Vistaprint . Decals don’t need fine art quality business cards.
It’s nice that they are providing a discount for Moo, but I doubt people would be able to order enough to balance out the premium fees. It would have been even better if, in addition to a discount with Moo, they also worked out a discount with some other company for the vast majority who don’t need fine art quality cards.
I’ve had several clients comment on how they like my business card. I think it’s all about the thickness. Moo.com sells some great Mohawk paper business card; you just have to pay more. If you want the best of the best (even better than Moo’s ~$50 cards), use a local letterpress shop. You’ll probably be paying at least $100-$200. The cards look incredible though.
Overnight Prints is best for quick fixes on a tight budget. MOO is known for superior quality. They are relatively quick with turnaround as well.
Moo is always my favorite, but their sizes aren’t the norm. The card stock for my business cards is top notch, but they’re larger than normal cards.

GRIN games emerged
As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
