Are any of you paper lovers?  You get excited by a brand new notebook and fun stationary?  I have always been one of those people.  Maybe it’s partly why I love making lists on fun paper.  Making business cards has been one of those more challenging things.  I order online and don’t get to feel the paper.  I miss the tactile response to picking out just the right paper.

My first set of business cards came out fine.  They were made with recycled paper, which was important for me as a green blogger.  The design wasn’t perfect but they were inexpensive.  Then I got to try out the green cards from Moo.  Pretty cool design options, eco-friendly paper, plus some really cool customizing options.

I decided to do a custom option for my green Moo business cards.  Some bloggers suggested adding a photo to cards in light of the masses headed to BlogHer.  I have to agree that I did like seeing other pictures on cards because I was able to place where I first met someone. 
Since I do love paper, I was also able to test out the Luxe Moo cards.  Not exactly eco-friendly, but beautiful.  Each business card is like handing out a present.  It’s heavy, well designed (Moo design, not my own) and has great color saturation.

Which is my favorite?  I think I would like the design of the Luxe card on my eco-friendly paper cards. The Luxe ones are almost too dense for everyday use, especially for a blogger conference when you are handing out cards like candy. For a paper snob like me, I can vouch for how nice the green card option is.  They are more matte than the standard Moo card so you shouldn’t run into any scanner issues.

Want to test them out? I’ve got a $50 Moo gift card to giveaway! Business are not just for bloggers and business owners. You can get a personal calling card, which is super helpful on the playground when making playmates!

    I can't figure out how to enter . I run a non for profit REUSE center and could certainly use the business cards. Nichole.

    We just moved and the kids are starting at a new school. I'd use them to let the kids give them to their friends so parents can get together to arrange playdates.

    If I won I think I'd get personal cards for my husband…he is always meeting new fishing buddies and also does side work, so these cards would come in handy!

    Thanks for the giveaway…my wife is in the process of starting a home-based business consulting concern, so I would give her the gift card.

    Such a nice post!

    I’m contemplating more offline networking so this article is definitely helping me think about my own card design.

    Thanks for your share…
