22 Aug 2007 Finally Somebody Moo’d
Do you have a Flickr account? If you do, you can have between 1 and 100 of your photos printed on the back of fashionably under-sized business cards, packaged and delivered to you from MOO for just $20. The process is completely automatic and can be done from either your Flickr account or the MOO website. Pretty cool.
Imagine the possibilities with a microstock agency. Someone likes the idea but doesn’t have their own photos. Or they want cards printed with photos relevant to their business. $20 for the mini-business cards and $1 for each separate photo they choose from the microstock agency. Bargain!
Fotolia announced a partnership with MOO yesterday, much to my delight. To my disappointment, the partnership doesn’t enable you to choose which photos to have printed on your cards. Instead, they’re offering four different themed sets of pre-specified photos: flowers, puppies, kittens and skies.
Let’s hope they take the partnership further and enable MOO customers to choose any photo from the Fotolia portfolio. Until then, if you want such a product you can manually buy the photos (at any microstock agency) and upload them to MOO yourself. In addition to mini business cards, MOO also offers stickers and notecards printed with your choice of photos.
