Etsy.com's blog, "The Storque" recently ran an article showing some of the ways Etsy artisans use their moo cards and they featured one of the images of how I use them, procured from my Flickr account.
It's a fairly old picture and my packaging has changed some... Here's an updated image:
But I figured I'd post the "behind the scenes" of how I use them
moo cards are part of my packaging- I have my shop/artist name, web address, and tag line on one side and on the other I have a list of ingredients I use in my work as well as space for the title of the piece. I found that some folks find meaning or coincedence in the titles and the materials I use are interesting- including this information with their purchase, lets my work speak for itself- particularly when given as a gift. It also passes on my information to the recipient, in a slightly more subtle but very useful fashion.
The "ingredient" card is also used to keep things organized. Each piece that is available for sale, is stored with a moo card, with the title written on it. That way, if I have a helper in the studio, I only need to communicate the title of the piece- rather than relying on a description which can turn into a game of operator/telephone. The moo cards also help me keep not-yet-listed pieces out of the mix, so I can have a better, visual representation of what I have that can be listed. Before I started keeping things this organized, I would often realize that a piece I had not listed was in with the listed goods, and I would wonder why it had not sold yet.
This keeps it simple, streamlined, and fascilitates the flow of information and goods within the studio, as well as tightening precision as far as filling orders.
Hope this gives you some ideas on how to use these handy and beautiful cards!
