Capture your Creativity

April 2010, by Simon G | Add a comment

At MOO we’ve always considered creativity important, and we’re constantly amazed at the creativity of our customers.

As you know, we share ideas through our blog and in the MOOsLETTER (you can sign up in the box on the right). We also share speedy links we’ve spotted on Twitter – and keep a long-term library of links on Delicious.

Part of the reason we like to share all this, is because – like you – we know ideas don’t just generate themselves! We can all use a little inspiration sometimes.

So, whether you are looking for new marketing ideas – perhaps a refresh for your email newsletter or new stand for a trade show – passion, …Continue reading this article…

New Feature! Photo Enhancement

April 2010, by Martin | 19 Comments – latest by neemers

Those of you who follow us on Twitter will be aware that over the past few months we’ve been looking for a steady stream of people to come to MOO HQ to help us test new developments on the site. We’re sure it doesn’t take a genius to add two and two together and figure that we’ve got lots of changes planned, to roll out over the next few months.

There will be lots more information on that to follow but in the meantime, the first fruit of this major update is ready to be unveiled…

Our motto is “We love to print”. And we mean it. More importantly though, we love to print at the highest quality possible, making …Continue reading this article…

A Resource of Resources: The Small Business Web

April 2010, by Lisa | 4 Comments – latest by Lisa

We’re rather lucky here at MOO because we get to meet a load of interesting people. One day we’re meeting MOOsters (like illustrator and designer, Ookhah) who generously provided feedback on an upcoming product. Other days, we’re meeting professional photographers like Ian who shared his insights on setting up an exhibition. Other times, our offices become a meeting point for start-ups looking to exchange ideas or even challenge us in a snowball fight.

A month ago, I met Michelle from another Providence-based business, BatchBlue, who help make running a small business a little less stressful. She told us about what she and the BatchBlue crew had been up to. Rather than explaining it myself, we …Continue reading this article…

MOO Service Update – UK & Europe

April 2010, by Denise | Add a comment

As you may be aware, a large volcano erupted in Iceland yesterday, halting air traffic across most of Northern Europe. Sadly this does have a negative impact on some MOO deliveries.

All international mail, leaving our UK warehouse, is subject to 24-48 hour delays. Please be a little extra patient in waiting for your MOO’s to drop through the door – they will arrive as soon as they can!

We do try extremely hard to fix problems as they arise, but even our mighty MOO warehouse crew can’t fix an erupting volcano.

End of year shows and exhibitions: tips worth studying

April 2010, by Denise | 6 Comments – latest by macs dixon

Around this time of the academic year, final year degree students in the world of art, design and photography start thinking about the future. Usually, it’s the very near future – end of year shows are looming large. The hard work and late nights will start to kick in, along with the questions. What work to show? How best to present it? How to get noticed in a show full of classmates, friends, and sometimes rivals?

A lesson on Seniors’ Portrait Cards – getting wise to the student market

April 2010, by Fiona | Add a comment

For freelance creatives, pinpointing business opportunities in new or less obvious areas can make the difference between a stable, potentially stagnant career and a dynamic, ever-expanding one. Freelance photographer, Amy Neubauer, has recently started to broaden her portfolio of services to meet the growing demand for ‘Senior Cards’ – portraits of pupils in schools and colleges throughout the US.

Particularly popular with high school students, Senior Portraits for the college year book have emerged as a thriving industry for professional photographers. Once captured for posterity, students order packages of their pictures, comprising 8×10, 5×7 and wallet-sized (2.5×3.5) mini prints. The wallet-sized cards are then handed out to fellow students at the end of high school or to coincide with graduation.…Continue reading this article…

Do you feel lucky?

April 2010, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by Guy Lewis

We love it when people share their creative tips for using MOO – like this one, from Jeannie, at Equinox Photography. She mailed in to tell us about her Fortune Cookie MiniCards, and we thought it would be nice to share them with you too.

She says: “I wanted something different that would be a great conversation starter to use on cards promoting my photography business. So I came up with a few ‘fortunes’, some from existing fortunes that I had saved and some I just made up. I thought it would look cool to mimic the printing of a fortune paper that you’d find in a cookie, so …Continue reading this article…

The truth behind our new Business Card launch

April 2010, by Denise | Add a comment

As many of you have already guessed, yes, we were kidding when we said we were launching new, limited edition ‘Back to Front’ Business Cards. If you would like such a card, feel free to flip your regular Double Sided Business Cards over and hand them out with your details presented face up, picture on the back. Magic!

Thanks so much for all the great responses to our little April Fools’ Joke. We had a lot of fun making it.

One thing we weren’t joking about was the discount. We really have got 10% off ALL MOO Business Cards – the ‘Classic’ matte laminated card, and the new Green stock.

Simply place your order before Midnight …Continue reading this article…

Double sided Business Cards: Reinvented!

April 2010, by Denise | 26 Comments – latest by JK

There’s been much excitement in the MOO office of late. It’s been hard not to tweet about it, but for once we’ve managed to keep our excitement under wraps. The Business Card world is a cut throat market – as soon as word of a new product gets out, other companies go for imitation not innovation. This time we wanted our latest innovation to arrive on the market as fresh as the proverbial daisy.

The recent past: MOO’s exciting range of products
For a long time now, MOO has championed the cost effective, double sided Business Card. You can upload up to 50 different images on the front – your photography, your designs, your clever marketing slogans or your product …Continue reading this article…
