No, it's not a GD moo Card.

moo cards are all cute and I'm sure wonderful to be tossing around your local flickr meetup, but once one strays outside the flickr community and the photoblogging world, I think the standard business card works best.

It's hard enough explaining blogs and digital archives on the fly without getting into why I just handed the person a ridiculous sized card that can't even be licked and stuck on a letter and mailed. I got enough trouble already.

A blog card can serve as a get out of jail free card and instantly diffuse a confusing situation, be a point of contact should anyone want to follow up and actually SEE the photos you've taken of them, or (THE BEST) serve as a distraction as you make a quick get away.

  1. You know the MOO card doesn't have to have any Flickr information on it at all and they are very memorable. Of course they are so small I think people lose them.

  2. No, no, the flickr information is cool. My next cards will have it on them. But moo cards aren't really known to the general non photoblogging/flickr public so I'll keep using a standard type business card. Standard sizes rock.

  3. hum. . .

    monumental -- "having the quality of being larger than life; of heroic scale"

    majestic -- "having or displaying great dignity or nobility"

    epic -- "of unusually great size or extent; surpassing the usual or ordinary, particularly in scope or size"

    Words that only the most humble photographer would use.
