The most innovative part of the review first; Moo is the only business card printing service that offers NFC technology. For those shaking their heads at the prospect of using business cards as they represent a dying business tool, NFC technology answers the call. By embedding a microchip inside business cards, Moo allows for you to upload your contact information into phones, tablets, and other mobile devices with a simple tap of the card. This brings business cards into a different century so to speak.
As for traditional cards, Moo offers many of the features you’ve come to expect. Cardstock and linen paper are available, as well as matte and gloss finishes, and vertical printing and mini cards.
In the printing process, you’ll be able to utilize bleeding edges and rounded corners. Print quality was top of the line as well. Standard 300 dpi is used and print jobs in our review process were consistently above board.
You will miss out on some options though. Plastic, magnetic, and specialty cards are not available. Neither are calendars or banners. If your business isn’t looking for these options then no harm no foul. You’ll still be able to print flyers, brochures, and door hangers, as well as postcards, envelopes and address labels. Be sure to keep in mind that you will not be able to utilize UV spot finish, one of the few black marks in our review.
It should also be noted as you design your cards, there is a limit to the file formats you can upload. If you plan on using PDF, JPEG, GIF, or PNG files you’re okay. But AI, TIF, PSD, EPS, and BMP files are not supported. The design process though, is an easy one, with a large number of professionally designed templates and images available.
Likewise the customer support experience was refreshing. LiveChat, email, and phone support are available, and throughout our review process each had little frustration element, particularly LiveChat, which was easy to use and required almost no wait. This is a benefit that should not be overlooked, as proofs are not available. It is up to you to be sure of the finished product before making a final purchase for delivery
As far as those deliveries are concerned, Moo is about average with regard to turnaround. At two to six days, wait times are not over the top, but don’t do anything to set the service apart. As the prices are at well above the competition at 350 and 700 dollars for 1000 standard and premium full color cards, respectively, you should be sure of the purchase you’re making. With the option for NFC cards and high print quality, Moo could be a formidable card printer. It all depends on your business needs.
Moo offers a set of solid features and options, a bevy of templates, and customizable options for your business needs.
