I really like moo.com style for business cards, anyone knows other alternatives?

Same style and quality but a little bit cheaper maybe?

Have you checked with a local print shop?

Vistaprint...

Psprint isn't bad. A colleague of mine used moo.com style mini-cards. They are too easy to lose in a purse or wallet, in my opinion, at that size. But the different images were really cool.

Seems nobody knows what Moo's cards are about. None of the options listed above offer what Moo does; that's the ability to have a different image on every card. Or any combination of images printed over a 100 card set.

The others are just regular business cards.

No one that I know of offers what Moo does.

Brad is correct, I browsed vistaprint, psprint, zazzle and didn't see any option to have 50 different pics that I can upload for the design...

Jeff Spirer , Aug 27, 2009; 04:05 p.m.

at that size.

Moo cards come in the mini-card size you are referring to and in a full-size card. The same ability to upload multiple images and have each card different applies to the bigger cards.

Why everyone other than Jennifer felt they could offer suggestions without even bothering to understand what was being asked is something that should lead to more careful thought before posting in the future.

Well, gee, maybe the OP should have gone to the trouble of explaining what Moo cards are about instead of leaving it up to everyone else to ferret it out. Moo's not exactly a household name.

The bad thng about Moo's cards is that the larger ones are not the standard, US size. They're a little shorter, which is not a big deal, and a little wider, which is. So they may not fit in your wallet's card slot or in the biz card holder that businessmen carry (or used to). In card design, we are taught to avoid non-standard sizes for this reason. What doesn't fit may get pitched.

Now, having said all that, I have some Moo cards myself. I like having a variety of pictures on the cards, and they're sturdy and well printed. But I have seen some folks show brief frustration because they didn't fit where the recipient thought they should.

It takes four seconds in google to find out what moo cards are. If someone wanted generic business cards, they would have asked for business card referrals, not moo cards.

The larger cards are a different size than is used in the US, it depends on how someone is going to store cards. The little cards are much cuter and popular because of that.
