got moo?

This has to be one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time. Everytime I look at it I get a head full of a thousand ways to play with it. It's like a really big box of crayons for grown-ups only so much cooler. is a company out of London that is offering custom printing of minicards from your Flickr photos. Cool right? But here's the best part: they're $20/100 and you get to choose up to 100 different images per pack! There's also space for up to 5 lines of text, full colour, on the back along with your Flickr buddy icon (optional). No additional charge.

Imagine the possibilities. . .

A contact of mine who is a professional make-up artist has started using them in place of traditional business cards. I'm imaging art projects and think that I might just have found the ultimate cure to grey cubicle walls. There is already a gallery of what people are doing with these on Flickr. Just looking at the promo photo inspires me. So much colour, so many choices. So much fun! And at this price, I can afford to play.

I'm placing my order this week-end.

Wow! You're inspiring me. So I could use this as a business card?? Hmmm. I guess the options are endless.

How are you doing? I hope all is well. Mark and I are having a pumpkin party tonight. It's last minute, so only 3 people are coming so far. We're going to carve pumpkins and watch a not-scary Halloween movie (if one exists).

Have a splendid day!

If you are interested in something closer to a business card, check out QOOP when signed into the Flickr website (or go directly to QOOP).

They have a 2.5" x 3.5" photo card and orders are 50% off right now. So with shipping to Canada, the order comes to about $23 USD for 100 cards. These are photos (and optional text) on the front and up to five lines of text (and optional photo) on the back. They also have a single sided option (slightly less money for that).
