Ordered some of those free Facebook business cards from moo.com and was really surprised they arrived as Euro business card dimensions (credit card size)... they came from US but assuming because moo.com is originally a UK company.
This is first time I've come across cards this size, is it the norm everywhere else in the world? I much prefer the longer ratio of a North American card, but credit card dimensions do make sense in my wallet.
but i prefer the uk ratio
- golden ratio, ya?jaylarson
I guess my question is; are more people in North America starting to use the UK/Euro ratio? Moo is pretty big in the online printing biz, even bigger with the Facebook plug, I would think the cards will become much more common.

We tend to use 86 x 54mm with rounded corners, because the boss gets his dogeared and ratty all the time. Mind you, he does carry around both his personal and business cards in bundle wrapped with an elastic band, and put into a small coin bag.
He's classy like that.
