Image 4 of the Christmas and Holiday Card Caption Competition

October 2008, by Alicia | 58 Comments – latest by Fiona

As the response to image number 1 in our Christmas and Holiday Card Caption Competition proved, there’s nothing you all like more than a cute animal dressed up in a silly outfit.

We figured that seeing as we featured the lovely Yorkie, Trixie, it’s only right that we give the cat-lovers a turn.

Our fourth photo was taken by Dr. Hemmert.

Aw. Doesn’t your heart just melt?

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Great news! More MiniCard Frames are now in stock!

For those of you that missed out on the first load, get in quick before the others fly off the shelves as well. Also, make sure you get your frame whilst they are still at the introductory price of $39.99/

The MOO Holiday and Christmas Card Caption Competition is already off to a flying start!

We’re thrilled to see so many brilliant captions submitted already. From the cute to the funny to the downright ridiculous. We love them all, and picking our winners is going to be pretty tough!

Remember, you can keep submitting captions for all the images until the close of the competition, so as we add more images, keep checking back to the old images too, in case it takes a couple of days to think of the perfect caption!

Our second photo was taken by Sappymoosetree.

Once you come up with your caption, remember to post it in the comments, to be in with a chance …Continue reading this article…

Announcing the Christmas & Holiday Card Caption Competition!

October 2008, by Lisa | 236 Comments – latest by Sue

It’s all go in the MOO cowshed this week. Yesterday we announced the launch of our brand new product, the Mosaic Frame for MiniCards, and today we announce the start of our 12 day Christmas & Holiday Card Caption Competition!

Now, without wanting to make you all big headed, we know you’re a creative and witty bunch. (The Egg Hunt showed us you were also rather clever too). So this season we thought we’d hold a caption competition, rather than a photography one, to get your creative juices flowing in a different way.

The idea is as follows:

New Mosaic Frame, for MiniCards!

October 2008, by Paul T | 18 Comments – latest by Heber

UPDATE: That was quick! We’ve sold out of the first batch – but we have more on the way and are hoping they’ll be available to buy on Monday! Sorry for any disappointment. When we said we had a ‘limited number’ – this wasn’t quite the limited we meant – there are more to come, please bare with us.

Hi, my name is Paul Thorogood and I’m the Product Designer at MOO. I’m the person who designs everything you physically get to play with – from packaging to products, like the new Mosaic Frame.

As you can see in the video, the Mosaic Frame is …Continue reading this article…

MOO API hacks at BarCampLondon5 – and a winner

October 2008, by stefan | Add a comment

At BarCampLondon5, I gave a session on the beta MOO API. The slides are here. We also held a little competition – the best API hack over the weekend would win a Flip Video Ultra

The entries were as follows:

They’re all a little rough and ready (knocked together in hours, in
true barcamp spirit), but they do demonstrate the range of things one
can do quite nicely.

MOO & People’s Music Store – Beautiful beta welcome packs.

October 2008, by Nicky | Add a comment

Because I’m into API fun, (and just like showing off) I wanted you to see a beautiful use of MiniCards the lovely chaps at People’s Music Store made up to thank their beta testers.

You all know how much we love people-powered here at Moo, whether it’s making personalised gift tags or postcards from your actual holiday instead of boring Scarborough seaside collages (well, maybe I should go on better holidays, but anyway). So what do you get when you put MOO and the People’s Music Store together?

At the People’s Music Store you add exactly the music you want to your store (they’ve got lots), start telling people about it and when they buy from it, …Continue reading this article…

Pretty in Pink, Back in Black, and… Orange!

October 2008, by Denise | 15 Comments – latest by Emily

(I couldn’t think of anything for orange – can you? Answers in the comments please). Anyway- we’ve got COLOURED MINICARD HOLDERS! They’re in stock right now – and come in hot pink, bright orange, and a black so black it could crush a man’s soul.

The office opinion is split as to which colour is best. Notable comments were as follows:
Pete (Global Marketing Manager): I like the pink one best. I mean, well… Not for me! For my wife.
Richard (Founder & Chief Executive): White is still the best, I have no need of this coloured frivolity.
Jake (Lovely German intern, since gone to study): At last! They come in black! I know it’s only a test one but can …Continue reading this article…
