Make your stamp worth while!

A couple of weeks ago bag making guru Lisa Lam was having a giveaway for some Moo Business cards, and I was one of the lucky winners.  When Moo contacted me with my free business cards code, I cheekily wrote back and said if they didnt mind I'd much rather have postcards if at all possible!  Dan from Moo was delightful and said they didnt mind at all.

Now, obviously, openly, I got a freebie.  Giveaway, its all there in the name.  I am not, however, under any kind of obligation what so ever to blog about them - no-one is twisting my arm or hypnotising me or paying me or nuthin. I'm just telling you all about them cos I was impressed with the service and I love the product.

The only difficulties I had setting up and ordering my Moo postcards were in choosing what photos to use - no matter how nice I make something, almost all my photos of my makes are pants!  Seriously.  2 1/2 years of making and blogging and it was tough to find photos I liked... Terrible terrible lighting.  No garden for pretty background, no washing line for quilt hanging.... Anyway.  Eventually I settled on my photos, and the rest was simple.

My postcards arrived pretty quickly.




Another thing that impressed me was the packaging, you can remove the Moo slip cover and put your own business card on the plain box if you are giving them away or selling them, crafty huh?





Best of all tho, I love my postcards!





Dunno what Moo made of my swearystitching, but honestly, no crossed-fingers-behind-back, it just happens to be one of my better attempts at photo taking, thats all....

  1. I love your postcards. I've just been using my stickers from Moo this morning and already had business cards, so didn't enter the contest. I agree that Moo is really a very good company.

  2. Ha, they are fab, i'll bet you giggled to yourself when you uploaded the sweary stitching, I would have. I ordered from Moo last year and thought the service was fab, but i do "need" some postcards for swaps etc, but first i also need to work on the camera problem, aaargh! : )

  10. I especially love the bit on the back for where the stamp goes (not that I don't like the front, but that bit's really fun!)

  12. Do I have to write to you to get one?? If you are anything like me you will be hoarding them - keeping them all to yourself and I only have wee cards!

  13. Oooh yummy. I had some cards made with one pic of a quilt ages who but they've ll gone now. We do a Christmas card project at school - the kids all do an A4 Christmassy pic and the parents can order it as cards, so I snuck in a photo of a quilt: the cards even had my name printed on the back, shame I'm 49 rather than 9!!!!! I might look at moo when my bank balance has recovered!
