Do you Moo?

I wanted to talk a minute about because I have LOVED everything I have ordered from them. I rarely talk about products on here but, I get so many comments about these products whether it’s something for my blog or for my personal life.

I was first introduced to Moo by Foodbuzz. Every featured publisher gets a free set of minicards from Moo when they sign up. I got my minicards with my blog name and email address with just some stock photos on the other side. I remember being instantly impressed by the quality of the cards. They are seriously THICK and have a great satin matte finish.

Since then, I decided I wanted business cards with photos that are from my blog. I love that you can upload up to 50 photos for your 50 business cards. I usually go with 10-12 photos per set. And they come in a nice black box. I keep mine in my purse at all times so I always have my cards handy.

And check this out. This is a new feature since the last time I ordered business cards. Now you can get a photo/logo printed on the back of your business card. It takes up the top third or so for the card. I put my blog header up there since I don’t really have a logo and then included my key info under the header.

I’ve also ordered their postcards. I have postcards for my blog that I include in anything I ship for my blog. So for giveaways that I host or packages I send overseas for Operation Baking Gals, I write a little note on the back and throw one in the box. I have also used the postcards for party invitations and my nephew’s birth announcement (with nothing on the back) as well. The postcards are thick like card stock with a glossy finish.

When I ran out of business cards and needed to order more, I contacted to see if they would give me some for free (hey, it’s worth asking!). They said they couldn’t, but did offer me 30% off of three products. Since I was already planning to order more business cards and postcards I decided to try something new. I went with the sticker book. How fun is this little guy! Now I have little Beantown Baker stickers. I’m still not sure what I’ll do with them, but I’m sure I’ll come up with something.

So if you’re in need of anything printed, definitely check out

**Disclaimer, I am not being paid for the post. I was offered 30% off to try 3 products from Moo.

    Thank you so much for sharing. This is UNREAL. My husband Jeff ran the Boston Marathon this year, and I spent the day traveling around on the T watching the marathon with my in-laws. We ended the day just a block from the blast sites – I shared my story here:; Jeff’s story here:

    It definitely does help to put some words together. And I feel the same way- even though I was volunteering at the 10k, i can’t help but wonder why wasn’t i volunteering at the finish line so I could’ve helped?

    • beantownbaker — April 19th, 2013 @ 4:10 pm

      I agree – it was therapeutic to write this up.

    Thanks for sharing Jen. I haven’t lived in Boston for 4 years now, but my husband and I had a similar reaction. We both wanted to get “home” to the city we love, a city that becomes part of your being no matter where you go next.

    • beantownbaker — April 19th, 2013 @ 4:11 pm

      I’m glad to hear I wasn’t the only one who felt that way. Living in Boston leaves such a strong impression…

    I’m a longtime reader, first time commenter. First I want to give you big virtual hugs regarding the events in Boston. Your feelings are no less valid, no less important. My heart goes out to you. Also, I want to say, welcome to Cincinnati! I live east of the city and am a transplant from Seattle. Cincy is growing on me, and slowly but surely I’m starting to tell people that I’m from Ohio not Washington. 🙂 Best wishes to you and thank you for sharing.

    • beantownbaker — April 19th, 2013 @ 4:14 pm

      Jen – thanks so much for commenting. I realize that at some point I’ll say I’m from Ohio, but the events of this week just my my heart tied even tighter to Boston…

    I’m so glad all of your Boston people are safe. I can completely relate to your feelings of helplessness, I felt the same way after 9/11. It’s hard to be away from family and friends and a city that you love when tragedy strikes.

    Big hugs for you and your crew.

    • beantownbaker — April 19th, 2013 @ 4:14 pm

      Thanks Jene. I’m sure it’s very similar to how you felt around 9/11.

    I feel the same way–Boston was my home for four years of college. I love that city. I feel like it is MY city. I wish I was there, locked in with friends, watching the news and hugging them. I feel so helpless on the other side of the state, so far away.

    As soon as I’m able I’m going to the city and having a moment in the Common before heading to all my favorite places. My heart aches for the city, I wish I was there.

    • beantownbaker — April 19th, 2013 @ 4:15 pm

      I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who feels this way. We are trying to make plans to get back to the city sometime soon as well.

    Oh I so know how you feel.. I live in Michigan. I’ve been here for almost 10 years, and I still call Boston home. It’ll always be home to me. You’re not alone!

    • beantownbaker — April 21st, 2013 @ 6:07 pm

      Glad to hear I’m not the only one. I definitely think Boston will always feel like home to both me and Hubby.

    I know exactly how you feel – I am a 2004 graduate of Virginia Tech. I was at work when the April 16th incident happened in Blacksburg, and I felt SO far away, and SO hopeless – the only place I wanted to be was in my beloved Blacksburg.

    To make matters worse, I flew to Missouri the next day (for work) for 3.5 weeks. It seemed that the people out there had ALREADY moved on from the tragedy – it just made NO sense to me. I cried most of those 3 weeks, and since I was out there by myself it was a struggle.

    I have always loved Boston, and I know that that community will love and support one another, just as Blacksburg did (and still does). It was the sixth anniversary this past Tuesday, and with everything happening in Boston, and the thoughts of VT and Blacksburg, it was an extremely long and tiring week.

    Stay strong.

    • beantownbaker — April 22nd, 2013 @ 11:46 am

      That sounds like a horrible situation for you in the aftermath of the VTech tragedy. Thanks for the kind words and for sharing your story.
