Pawliday Cards by Moo.com

It’s rainy outside.  And in Southern California, that puts me in the Holiday spirit!  (Rain is kind of like our equivalent of a snow shower. . .)

 Luckily I just ordered my Daily Toki Holiday cards from Moo.com!

They arrived last week in this cute package: one set of Holiday cards with silver metallic envelopes.

From past posts, you might know what a Moo.com fan I am.  I’ve used them to make business cards, mini-cards, and even stickers.  So when they ran a sale on Holiday cards, I decided to try them out.

My verdict?  The cards have the usual Moo-style, high quality, satiny finish that I love so much.  But a high price point and limited customizability bring the rating down to 4 stars out of 5.

Here’s a summary of the cons:

- not a lot of customization, including font and ink color . . . Moo needs to work on that! (Note: this is less of an issue if you want a straightforward design, or you are able to use Photoshop or other programs to add your own text to your cover image.)

- metallic envelopes felt flimsy (maybe try the recycled brown envelopes)

- I noticed some smudging on the back side of some of my cards, near the fold (Moo generally has great customer service, so they would probably remedy this if I asked)

The pros?  They are many . . .

+ high quality, lovely paper and print quality

+ ability to put a different photo on each card

+ cute packaging that protects the product during delivery, so it arrives in pristine condition

+ clean, professional looking folds

+ uncoated paper inside, for easier writing

+ option to add a fun photo and short message on the back of the card (see below)

Overall, I’m excited about the cards – they turned out great!  But I’m curious if any of you have a favorite customized card printer that you like?

    I haven’t heard of this site before, normally I use shutterfly.com, but I think this year I might try tinyprints.com. they have a big selection of retro holiday cards that are adorable! I really do like the little message and pic on the back of your cards!

  3. Ooh I’ll have to try them out the next time I get something printed.
    Low res prints have always been a pet peeve of mine.

  4. We love their mini cards. I give them to Adventureweiner Club of Seattle members and they and them out to every Doxie owner they see :) If I was going to try greeting cards I would probably go through them. They do come with a pretty steep price though.

    Nice, that’s the one thing that holds me back from getting cards from them, or WHCC who I use as well. I don’t know why they feel the need to mark up their prices so much for the cards. I usually just make my own with some glue, cardstock and 4×6 photos. Not the same I know but I kinda like how they turn out.
