 Business cards don't have to be boring.
I love the business cards I get from Moo.comhttp://www.moo.com/share/wgf6bt. They are not boring. They are the best icebreakers money can buy. When I pass out my cards conversations are sparked. My cards have a full images of 50 of my favorite paintings. They look great, the quality is wonderful and since they look like little works of art, it is more likely that they won't get thrown away.

A new order of Moo cards

I just received a new order of cards and as I was looking through them I had a brainstorm.
These cards would make great little Christmas ornaments or gift tags! The cardstock is so nice a sturdy all I had to do was attach a loop of twine to the back of the card. I could get fancy with pretty ribbons but I like the natural look of twine.

Moo allows you to upload and use up to 50 different images to one batch of cards with no extra charge. So I have 50 different potential ornaments or tags!  If I had thought of this earlier I would have selected only my winter images. The possibilities are endless for themed ornaments!

My Moo order nicely packaged

Painting notes: Today's painting is a 5x7 plein air study I did as a demo for a workshop. uart paper, no underpainting.  I love fir trees!

thanks so much Karen for the idea! I had previously ordered my cards from Vistaprint, but now that I'm getting low, I'm going to order from Moo.

I love that fir tree! Thank you for sharing where you get those great cards printed! I love the one you chose for me, the cat painting is beautiful and warmed my heart. Ari purrs at you too.

I'd wanted to know where to get these made and will definitely be getting some next year. I'd put off getting a printer cartridge and blank cards, but this would be a lot better. You're right that they don't get thrown away. Every artist friend who gives me cards with their art on them it gets saved, well cared for, easy to see who it is at a glance.
