Beautiful idea for Stickers!

September 2007, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Deborah Read

It’s been crazily busy at MOO recently. We’re working on loads of new and exciting stuff at the moment and this week has been frantic, so it has to be something pretty cool that makes me want to make more Stickers at this time on a rainy Friday.

But look at these! Beautiful photographic Stickers turned into a wonderful promotional package, by yoshiko314.

She says ‘I hope someone wants to have one (or two, or more) of them at the photo exhibition.’
One or two? I want them all actually! What a great way to promote your work. I love this idea as an alternative ‘business card’.

What’s the time? Maybe I will just make a quick …Continue reading this article…

Travelling (s)miles by post

September 2007, by Denise | 9 Comments – latest by Margaret

Email isn’t as nice as post, is it? Well, sometimes it is – you know, when it’s something cool like an amazing job offer, but really, post is king. Finding a nice handwritten envelope in amongst the bills and junkmail is a real treat. Like kicking leaves in Autumn and finding a shiny new penny hiding underneath.

I’ve mentioned the MOOSwapping community before I think, people on Flickr and LiveJournal trading MiniCards. Very often people get creative with the way they send things, and these, sent out by the crocheted cat really tickled our fancy:

Word up! Top tip for primary school teachers

September 2007, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by Stefanie

Stefanie, a pre-service primary school teacher has come up with a great use for MiniCards. A LiveJournal user, she’s used the Text MiniCard option to make a a set of cards featuring the most commonly used words in the English language.

Each of the cards in the 100 pack has a different word, clearly written on a plain, but colourful background. She plans to use them as flash cards or prompt cards, and perhaps make a set of nouns or adjectives next.

We love this idea! (Actually we made a less educational version ourselves a while ago, and attached magnets to the back, for use as fridge poetry.)

If you’re not a LiveJournal user, but you’d still like …Continue reading this article…

Newsflash for scrapbookers!

September 2007, by Denise | 11 Comments – latest by Mariangeles from Spain

Are you a scrapbooker? We were asked when we launched Stickers if they were acid free and thus suitable for scrapbooking, and we were pleased to tell you they were.

We’ve been doing a bit for digging around since then, to find out anything else we could, and we’re really pleased to be able to tell you – direct from our paper mill – that the paper for MiniCards and NoteCards is both acid and lignin-free!

Now, if you’re new to scrapbooking and wondering what on earth I’m talking about – this page here might help. It explains acid and lignin and the problems they can cause to your work over time.

If you’re not a scrapbooker, …Continue reading this article…

MOO receives news from absent CTO

September 2007, by Denise | 9 Comments – latest by Stef

Isn’t the web great? Stef, our CTO has gone to Burning Man. Naturally we’re running amok in his absence, and he doesn’t know. (I hope). We know what he’s been up to though, as we’ve spotted him on Valleywag, handing out Stickers with gay abandon.

And what’s that on his thumb? Nail varnish? A bruise? Actually, is that even his thumb? I must say we’re pleased to see there’s what looks like a good selection of condiments in the background. It’s nice to know he’s eating well.

Once we’ve finished re-configuring everything we can lay our hands on in Stef’s absence, a few of the MOO crew are off to dconstruct, in Brighton, on Friday. If you’re …Continue reading this article…

The New MOO

September 2007, by Denise | 4 Comments – latest by Maude

We’ve changed! Actually, we changed last week, but we’ve been a bit too busy to tell you about it. We’ve expanded our selection of great design, and made it much easier for you to mix and match images, to make cool stuff. And why have we done this, you might ask? Well, (thanks for asking) mainly because we know what its like when you want to make Stickers or MiniCards or something and realise all your own photos are rubbish.

We introduced Ready Made in July, launching with artists Brian Taylor, Blanca Gomez, Lara Cameron, Marc Johns and the COLOURLovers. We also introduced photography packs by the Science Museum and others by Fotolia.

Now, rather than use …Continue reading this article…
