Yes, finally, the damn package arrived on Friday. OK, so it's not like it was late or anything, and it was coming all the way from London, but I am supremely impatient so it felt like forever.
What did I get?
Moo Mini Cards!
They're about half the size of a regular business card, with a full-bleed image on one side, and text on the other. You get a box of 100 cards for $19.99 and you can choose one image, one hundred images, or anything in between. I think I picked around 20.
The text on the back?
OK, see, here's the thing. I'm working on getting a shop set up on etsy. So the text on the back is the url for my shop. It's not set up, yet, and there's nothing in there. I'm waiting for my one last test run and hoping that the quality is what I've been told it is. If so, I'll be one step closer to what I hope is a no-later-than early September shop opening.
I'll be starting with limited edition signed 10x10 prints. I have not yet decided 100% for sure which snaps I'll be starting with. Each run will be limited to 20 prints.
Depending on how things go, I will start offering paired prints, matted and framed, in October or early November.
Up for Grabs:
To celebrate (and, also, to spread the word), I'm offering up four sets of five random mini cards. Each set will contain one special card that has a code written on the back. That code will get the claimant one 10x10 print of their choice from my shop. Use it for yourself, give it away, it doesn't matter, but it's going to be free.
Gruppie is already owed a prize, so she will be getting her very own set of five cards with one special code.
For those of you paying attention, that means I'm actually sending out a total of five sets of five mini cards.
