Our verdict

Does Moo give you more? The range of printed items is more limited than Vistaprint’s or UPrinting. The MOO line includes business cards, mini-cards, postcards, greeting cards and sticker books. Obviously it’s less of a choice but the quality of the products and the designs is high. If you’re looking for a full range of marketing and promotional products, try another service, but we think MOO covers the bases in style and offers high quality core products.




Full review

MOO offers a classy alternative to the large-scale online printing sites. With a small range of hand-picked designs and products, the MOO experience is a quality one and we think you’ll appreciate the end result.

Sign up

Sign up with your name and an email address. Once you’re signed in you have a record of your orders and can recreate products when you want.

Process

The MOO process is especially suited to artists and designers as you can easily upload your own work to make business cards, postcards and other promotional materials. Creating your own custom designs through MOO is made easier with online MOO tools. However, there is another option to use MOO designs and add your own logo and/ or words. Once you’ve got your design sorted out, you choose the type of paper or card you want, decide on your shipping options and then make your payment. Try the goods before you buy with a free (including shipping) MOO sample pack including a pre-printed sample of all the MOO products.

Features

The design templates are professionally designed and it shows. There’s a range of different styles to choose from but they all look fresh and modern.

Create a set of stickers for branding purposes or to hand out at events. For a little extra stand-out appeal, order business cards from MOO with rounded edges. Going further in the individuality stakes, MOO Printfinity is a clever little innovation that allows you to print a different image on every business card in your pack. With different artwork on the front and your business contact details on the back, these cards give you a fresh way to provoke conversation and let others know more about your business. You can upload your own artwork or choose a ready made pack with a different, MOO-chosen design on each one. There’s no extra charge, aside from the regular print and shipping costs, of printing cards in this way.

The MOO brand doesn’t stop here. MOO also attends to the detail of packaging your business cards and mini-cards. The free MOO cases that hold your cards are eye-catching, well-designed and rather attractive. The cases are made from recycled board and are meant to display your cards as well as store them.

Quality of prints & products

MOO prides itself on the quality of its papers and cards and you’ll probably be impressed too. You can choose from a variety of finishes and weights to make your printing jobs look professional and eye-catching. If your order arrives looking not quite like you expected, you can claim for a reprint, or a coupon for a new order, or ask for a brand new order.

Shipping

Your shipping costs with MOO depend on the method of shipping you choose and whether you select to have your order “rush printed”. Shipping times range from standard (seven to 10 days) to express (six days). Rush printing means the company prints your cards in two days, rather than the standard five days. Your shipping costs also depend on what you have ordered. There’s a cost calculator on the site to help you work out how much your shipping will come to.

Ease of use

The MOO site initially looks a little clunkier than its competitors and several areas are slower to download than Vistaprint and UPrinting. However, the process of creating and ordering business cards and other products is simple and the step-by-step process is easy to understand. Searching for the design you want is fun and once you click on one there are a number of other related suggestions to try.

Help & support

If you need help with your order or you want to ask a question, you can email the MOO team. There is a live chat function, but as the function is under construction it is not available all the time. You can track the stage of your order through your account. There’s a creative section giving you inspiration based on the designs of past clients of the site.

Overall

MOO is the design-conscious option for business cards, postcards and simple print formats. With its attention to detail and range of eye-catching templates and designs, MOO helps your marketing stand out from the crowd in a modern, distinctive style.
