Madonna, could you hold these for me?

28th March 2008 by Denise

It’s awfully glamorous working at MOO, as I’m sure you can imagine. Based in the heart of the up-and-come ‘East End’ of London, we’re working in a place steeped in history, industry and creativity. The oldest printing company in the country is just around the corner. The first magazine in England was published about 5 minutes from here and Charles Dickens set the scene for much of ‘Oliver’, on the Green around the corner. If that wasn’t enough, Madonna and Alexander McQueen have been spotted hanging out in the very market where the MOO Crew buy their lunch.

Look, it’s Madonna, hanging.

Yep, the glamour never stops. Or, that’s what we tell ourselves when faced with this:

It’s a stack of the awesome new MOO MiniCard Holders. Each one needs to be checked – have some special MOO magic placed inside – and packed ready for travelling.

So it’s been all hands on deck:

From Richard (The Man in Black – our CEO) to Brian (blue shirt – VP of operations), to Kim (Product Manager – yellow cardigan) to Pete (left hand side, Global Marketing Manager).

Hardly anyone was spared this mammoth task – here’s Lisa (VP of Sales & Marketing), Dan (Operations Supervisor) and Alicia (Associate Marketing Manager).

And suddenly, from the initial chaos, order is restored:

As a reward for all the hard work, it’s back to the glamour again. Champagne! Well. Kind of. It’s special British Champage. You know, some people might call it ‘Tea’.

But the true glamour in this post is provided by ‘elb_the_prof’, with this lovely photo, proving all our hardwork was worth it. She’s already received her MiniCard Holder, and it looks like it’s a hit!

Don’t quote me on this, but it could perhaps – in this instance – even be said to be more attractive than the photo of Madonna. Even better, the MiniCard Holder is more likely to hold your MiniCards without complaint for long periods of time. I have to admit I’ve not asked Madge to hold my cards, so I can’t say that is 100% true. Perhaps if you see her you could ask her, and let me know?

Thanks for your help.

    Yesterday when I was getting lunch Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy shot past in a big Jag! The celebs are drawn to us!

  2. Pete:

    Ooh, I got my card hodler the other day. It’s a star in it’s own right! Forget Prime ministers, celebs and the ‘upand coming’ East end. ;-)

  3. Denise:

    @Pete – thank you.
    And oi! The East End has up-and-come! We’re here, after all, you can’t get more stylish than us :)

  4. elb_the__prof:

    OOh – fame! Thanks for using my photo, but you forgot to mention the best bit – that it matches the lovely white iBook!

  5. evilscotty:

    Hello hello. Can I have one? Or a job @ Moo? Cos then I can nick some from the stationary cupboard.

  6. Alicia:


    I’m afraid there’s no nicking from stationery cupboards around here. Dan M protects those little white holders with his life. (He can be pretty fierce when he wants to be!)

  7. balintgilicze:

    It would be great to have an option to print a name on the stickers… Will it be possible some time?

  8. Martin Lindeskog:

    I have ordered MiniCards and a holder. I look forward to receive the stuff!

    All the Best,
