I love the idea of having a tiny art portfolio that can be carried in my pocket. Moo cards make that possible, as you can have up to 50 different designs on one side of the card, with one on the other. I don’t know where else you can do that. It seems pretty amazing to me.
In the past I’ve tried Moo’s standard matt cards, and also their mini cards, and I have to say that I have l really loved them. But when it came to getting some new ones I was tempted by the new recycled cotton cards they were advertising, made from white cotton t-shirts. Hopefully good for the environment as well as made of the same fibres as some of my favourite watercolour papers. So I took the plunge, and I’m really pleased with the results.
The colours are good, and in the video you can see how close they are to my originals. Of course that is also influenced by the way I have scanned and adjusted the colours in Photoshop to make them as close to the originals as possible. The paper has the same feel as my sketchbook, with a lightly textured surface. The card is nice and thick, and doesn’t bend. It feels solid. There is also no shine on the cards – exactly like my sketchbooks.
I’ve made a short video reviewing them, as I couldn’t find anything relevant to myself as an urban sketcher. Our needs are quite different to those of most businesses. I hope it is helpful to you. Please let me know what you think 🙂
PS: I forgot to tell you how to get to Moo! http://moo.com and then it will no doubt redirect to the appropriate website for your country. Have fun!
