So I ordered a set of 100 minicards from MOO.com a couple of weeks ago and they finally arrived a few days ago. I can't tell you why little pieces of paper with cute pictures on them can elicit extreme levels excitement, but trust me, they can.
If you haven't already heard of MOO, they're a UK-based printing company that allow you to upload your pictures from most large photo aggregation sites (Flickr, Facebook, etc.) and use them to print out greeting cards, post cards, etc. You can also use images by illustrators that have submitted their designs to the site (that's what I did).
Minicards are super cute (and mini) and judging from the Flickr group devoted to these little wonders, they're primarily used as business cards or promo cards or they're mashed up to create super duper collages.
I suppose I should also admit that these unboxing photos were staged. I was so excited to finally get them that I kind of tore into the package. As an afterthought I put everything back together and opened it up all over again for the cameras.
P.S. Happy new year!
