Moo Mini Cards: An Expensive Lesson in Proofreading

I’ve been an avid fan of the Moo cards ever since they went online. The business/calling cards are of high quality and each one is unique so even if they’re coming in from London and are a little expensive, I ordered 3 boxes.

With all that excitement, I forgot to proofread my submission.

It’s an expensive mistake. All 300 cards have a typo with the mobile number.

Now, either I throw them away or invest in a nice White-Out and spend hours cleaning out the errors. Maybe the latter.

    If you want to take a chance with crappy customer service, bad quality paper stock and numerous software errors and production bugs, go ahead and use MOO. These guys are terrible. BAD COMPANY and bad bad crap they’re trying to market. I’ve known too many people who have been screwed by these guys. Go elsewhere for your cards…..
    THIS COMPANY IS NOT A SAFE CHOICE. Too many people have been very disappointed.

    I feel bad for you, It happened to me too years ago on a batch of business cards, but the printer reprinted mine for no cost (local printer).
    There’s also www.myminicards.com, I don’t know if they ship international but I know they’re cheaper than moo

    I would suggest you resist the urge to use white out. It might be a costly mistake but closing a future business deal might be harder if you cut corners now.

    Might I suggest buying sticker paper, printing your correct number (in the same font, color, and size; DON”T FORGET TO PROOFREAD!), slicing it up with a utility knife, and sticking them over the typo? ;)

    I’m a fan of moo cards. Well, somewhat of a fan, being I haven’t really bought(or ordered)them cards. It is just too darn expensive. Maybe someday. Too bad about your cards though. I recc using White-Out, it would just be a waste of too good cards if you won’t be able to use them.
