Mini Cards: Just The Right Size To Take On Tour

One of the most exciting things we’ve seen in ages for bike touring just landed in our mailbox: mini contact cards from Moo, an online printing company that ships from the UK, the U.S. and Europe.

Moo Cards

At first glance, you might wonder what’s so exciting about that. Business cards are hardly new. But these ones are great for many reasons. In addition to being stylish and personal, they are also very small. They measure less than half the size of a normal business card, which means you can easily put 100 in your handlebar bag and hardly notice them.

Here’s what else we love about our Moo cards:

  • They’re personal. We put our own photos on one side of the cards.
  • There’s lots of variety, with up to 50 different photos in each pack.
  • The online order system is intuitive.
  • Delivery is speedy. Our cards came within a week, faster than promised.

Picking out which photos to use is especially easy. If you have photos on flickr, Moo can connect to your albums and let you select and crop the photos you want to use. You can also upload your own photos from your computer. We chose the second option and were pleasantly surprised at how quickly the photos were uploaded.

Cards come in packs of 100 and depending on how many photos you upload, you’ll get several of each design in each pack.

Once you’ve picked your pictures to go on the front of the cards, it’s time to choose the text for the back of the card. You can have up to 6 lines of text, less if you decide to also put a small graphic on this side as well.

When you’ve finished your order, you have a couple hours to make changes before the printing process begins. I got an immediate confirmation of my order and was promised delivery to the Netherlands within 10 days. Moo delivered a few days earlier than we expected. The cards were well packed and even came with a small, sturdy box that would be fine for protecting about 150 cards inside a pannier.

Moo Cards

Now, with the cards in our hands, we’re impressed with the quality. The paper is thick and sturdy. The colours are stunning. Everyone we show the cards to has a positive response. Their instinct is to grab more than one – making these cards a great way to promote your bike touring blog, as well as simply swapping emails with friends you meet along the way.

I think what we like most about the Moo cards is just how fun they are. There’s something really satisfying about flipping through the different photos from past bike tours and other travel adventures. It’s a little like picking out candy when there’s a whole shelf full of sweet-filled jars to choose from.

For the price – about $0.12 each for our order of 400 mini cards – we think they’re perfect and highly recommend them.

Moo also do stickers, greeting cards and other fun products. Check it all out on the Moo website.

    They look great!, Still I do have a question; how waterproof are they? I realize that the photo colours will bleed if they get soaking wet but what happens if they are just get one drop of water on them? Also if you are cycling in a humid tropical country – will the humidity affect the photo colours?

    Maybe you could test a card by putting it in the bathroom while you are taking a shower?

    Grace, I think they are as waterproof as a business card can be, without actually getting a plastic card printed. I don’t think the colours would bleed actually (it’s not ink jet printing) or be affected in humid conditions. The cards seem quite stiff and robust to me. But, I will dip one in a glass of water later just for you, to see what happens!

    I just stuck a card under a tap for a few seconds. The cards have a coating on them that makes the water bead up and run off. I don’t think they are exactly waterproof (what business card is waterproof??) so I wouldn’t leave them out in a rainstorm or anything like that, but if someone spills a drink and the card is quickly snatched away, it’ll probably be fine.

    Thanks for the answer – I was curious to know if the cards were printed via ink jet. The cards sound like a great replacement for standard business cards.

    We used Moo cards for our Goingeast adventure ( It was great, but I caution that you choose your pictures well. In many places we visited, pictures of me on my bike in biking shorts (and not capris that covered my knees) was not appropriate – oops. So our Canadian friends are more likely to have a picture of me than of Scott! People really loved the pictures of us on our bikes.
    The photo quality is excellent. I just placed in a new order, and there is so much more flexibility now with how you can configure the backs of the cards (with your own graphics) – before it was just text and your flickr profile picture.
    I can also attest that they hold up well to being shoved into wallets or zip log bag (aka bike wallets). They don’t run when they get wet, but like all paper, they do warp a b it.
    I too highly recommend them .. they are so darn fun and the price is right … When we originally ordered them, you could only get them in the UK. Our last order was on from the US site, but given how long they are taking for delivery (I’m still waiting), I’m thinking they are still shipping from the UK (at least to Canada).

    One thing is the fact one of the most prevalent incentives for applying your credit card is a cash-back or maybe rebate provision. Generally, you will get 1-5 back upon various expenses. Depending on the credit card, you may get 1 back again on most acquisitions, and 5 back again on acquisitions made using convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores as well as ‘member merchants’.

    Thanks for your publication on the travel industry. I’d personally also like to include that if you are one senior taking into consideration traveling, it is absolutely crucial that you buy travel insurance for older persons. When traveling, older persons are at high risk of experiencing a medical emergency. Getting the right insurance plan package on your age group can safeguard your health and provide peace of mind.

    One thing I have actually noticed is there are plenty of misguided beliefs regarding the lenders intentions whenever talking about home foreclosure. One myth in particular would be the fact the bank wishes to have your house. The lending company wants your money, not your home. They want the money they loaned you together with interest. Avoiding the bank will undoubtedly draw some sort of foreclosed final result. Thanks for your publication.

    Thanks for your intriguing article. Other thing is that mesothelioma cancer is generally a result of the inhalation of dust from asbestos fiber, which is a dangerous material. It really is commonly noticed among workers in the structure industry that have long contact with asbestos. It’s also caused by moving into asbestos protected buildings for an extended time of time, Genes plays a huge role, and some persons are more vulnerable towards the risk as compared to others.

    It’s my belief that mesothelioma is usually the most dangerous cancer. It contains unusual properties. The more I actually look at it a lot more I am persuaded it does not conduct itself like a true solid cells cancer. If perhaps mesothelioma is really a rogue viral infection, hence there is the chance for developing a vaccine along with offering vaccination for asbestos exposed people who are vulnerable to high risk of developing long run asbestos linked malignancies. Thanks for revealing your ideas about this important ailment.
