moo recipe cards


like the ball popper balls, this is one of those things that I found and got excited about and wanted to pass on. i have all these recipe cards i've made and have been printing out as photos (which then have to be trimmed slightly to fit in a recipe box). but the photos stick together and aren't all that strong and get dirty and blah.

so i searched for a site that prints professional postcards. i found 14 that do it but you have to order like 500+ of the same design.

then i found moo.com. they do postcards (among other things). and you can order only one of each! hooray! they're wonderfully thick and laminated (for wiping off messes) and they slide around on each other like a kid on a slip and slide.

they have some guides for creating your cards. they're pretty simple to figure out. they just help you keep essential parts of your design far away enough from the edge so that it doesn't get clipped.

so i put together a bunch of our recipes (typing onto other people's flickr photos, creating them with digital scrapbooking thingers, scans from magazines or handwritten pages)

the rounded corners were my own doing. i just didn't want you looking around for that option on the website.

    I live in Lyman and you did my Aunt Anna and Uncle Stephen Beck's engagement photos. I've been looking for someone to do my Senior Pictures, and I've loved all your work that I've seen. My Aunt said you might not be available since you've had your second child, but I would REALLY love if you could contact me. My email is jabber_box_@hotmail.com and my cell is 3077470411, home 3077876624. Please let me know!!
