  1. I would attach hand-made pins/badges to mine so that they double as product packaging as well as business cards!

  2. For my design i would have my heart logo [found on my website] wrap round one edge of the card. with ‘iHEARTpixels’ being printed in gloss, but the same colour as the card so it had a spot varnished look.

    The card would be the charcolay/off black colour, the same as my website’s background colour

    The info on the back would be laid out in an easy to read fashion in a light very light grey.

  3. I’m a puzzle author, and it would be neat to have a set of cards with a variety of different sample puzzles on the card backs using the “printfinity” service.

    I would take advantage of this contest and make my cards stand out by using them as birth announcements for my first child coming in July. I would send 2 cards together that can be assembled to create a 3D rattle.

  5. I’d put love into every design x)

  6. Simple and clean, something which will grab peoples eyes and make sure they get back in contact with you know matter what the occasion.

  7. Gotta go with high res, up close pictures of my face with a emotion name underneath :). Multiple shots so people could collect them all…like baseball cards. Ha.

  8. I would love to print my Moo Cards making them photorealistic! Printing objects that fit on the small cards (at real size).

    Pleeeeaaase! :D

  9. I love Moo. I bought my sister one of the frames which hold all the mini cards in. Brilliant!

    In order to make mine stand out from the crowd, I would use some of the techniques which I have learned right here at Fudge Graphics. The problem with the mini cards is the size, so high levels of detail may be wasted on them. Keeping things bold, simple and making good use of colour will be the key.

    One thing I would love to try with the mini cards, and I thought this on seeing the frame I bought my sister, is to make a collection of mini cards. A collection that, when assembled correctly, would form a larger image. This would make a good end of year gift for my clients. That way you could get some good detail into a larger picture, before chopping it up to mini card size.

    I might begin work on a few ideas…

    Since my job is all about IT, I’d probably make a card that, when folded, looked like a USB pen, a DataTraveller or an old floppy disc (more likely the 1st choices, but the last if well designed would look kinda great).

  11. Different is good, as long as you’re not sacrificing simplicity. As I newly formed marketing / design studio we’d feature our awesome logo, possible bursting out of the traditional card shape (if MOO die cuts). All on a simple earth tone background, so my name & contact info POPS in white. Oh yeah!

  12. What an awesome idea! I love these little cards! I’ve been working on getting my name out there for freelance design work, so I would use them to kick that off in a really edgy way… showcasing all the things I love to do, like photography, graphic design, stationary/bookmaking and wedding planning! That would be multiples of 5 or so images total in a box. Full color images on front are a must, with simple, clean info on back. I especially love white text on black, with lots of “free/open” space. I would package them up in mini envelopes to include examples of each service for creativity, and alternately have a design that includes all images for a more convenient single-card. This would be so much FUN!!!

  13. being a dark artist, i would create an assortment of gothic and dark themed business cards..

  14. I make handcrafted soap. Along with being luxurious, my soaps are colorful works of art. Each Moo MiniCard would contain a close up photo of a different soap. With the soap name and ingredients printed on the back along with my contact info, they’d be perfect to include with a soap sample. A sliver of soap in a small glassine bag with the Moo MiniCard stapled to the bag. The cards would elevate a tiny soap sliver to a very classy and effective product sample.

  15. For my card, I nice textured business card with my portfolios at the back and info in the from

  16. I love texture and would see these cards as texture “swatches” – A way to collect images and show off my photography. This would make a great framed gallery too, with textures side by side.

  17. would like the design to be beautiful, with gr8 typography … for mini cards ..may be each card can have a different featured design of mine just for it being unique… :)

  18. I’m making a series of new patterns for my website which the user can change as they see fit. I’d use each of the patterns on the backs of the cards!

  19. I would like to make framings with thousand of foreground pictures that I have with a lot of facial expressions that my little baby makes everyday, alternating with full colour minicards and others with notes of phrases written by me. Then, I would like to make a poster with that, with a cool nice design..a mix of feelings and design for my son. :)

  20. We sell homemade bakes on our website and would like to take advantage of moo printfinity technology. I love to sketch and will be sketching many of our bakes which will be scanned on high quality and uploaded on one side of the card. So one side of the business card will be colorful highlighting our website, logo, etc and the other side would be different black and white only high end sketches of our bakes. Hinting baking is an ART

  21. This would be perfect for me b/c I am redesigning my site as we speak. How I would make my business card stand out from others – I’d strategically place them in areas where there aren’t other business cards.

  22. its for my yoga studio. We would put images of advanced yoga postures laid under interesting and thought provoking quotations to grab peoples attention and maybe trick the chatty mind to take a break and ponder something grander for a moment.

  23. As I have just went freelance and need business cards, I would make mine with all my new branding.

  24. Wow! All the examples are amazing! Mine would stand out, mainly because it would do exactly that–it would stand! Push out a little square tab to make it stand up and out on your desk. :) I don’t know, I just randomly thought of that because I want the prize. :)

    But my business card idea has been a square one 2.5×2.5″, on some heavy recycled paper. Brown paper bag color on one side, mustard yellow on the other. I’d have two versions printed, and the other versions, instead of the mustard yellow, would be a light ketchup red. :) Warm, natural, Bright—the colors represent me! The side with my contact info would be on the back–the brown side in a darker brown. Maybe I’d do a stamp/emboss thing with the dark brown inside? And the color side would show my logo. :)

    I’m dreaming now. :) Back to homework!

  25. It would be for my cinema.
    I would put a screen shot and a quote on the back, the address in the front and stick them around the city in obscure locations.

  26. my business cards will be mini christmas/birthday cards (but with a more fitting design suitable for selling myself as a freelance graphic designer, of course) and I will create mini envelopes (i already have the template) for them!!!

    Well, that’s the plan, anyway :D

  27. I want to make a series of small business cards which can be used as a flipbook if you put 20 of them in your hand.

  28. I’d like to go for one branding for both my portfolio and business cards. As a last-year student they would come in handy for interviews with companies. The business cards will have the most important contact information.

  29. it would be for me, i’m a freelance web designer. i’d use use them with a little bit of technology stuff in mind, for example on one side a QR code with information to contact me, o maybe a bar code would fit better. i should investigate more, but i think it would be really useful to get information from the card with a mobile device easily. :)

  30. I’d use my gig photography on cards to grab people’s attention.

  31. This contest is now finished. Thank you all for entering. Winners will be announced soon.
