We’re having a bit of a… remix behind the scenes at MOO, as you might’ve noticed. We’ll be showing you more exciting things in due time, but for now, we could use your help.
At the moment, MOO Business Cards are available in two different paper stocks. There’s ‘MOO Classic’ and ‘MOO Green’.
Now, ‘MOO Green’ as a name is fine. It’s 100% recycled, produced using wind-power, and very high quality paper. ‘MOO Green’ kind of sums that up….
But ‘MOO Classic’? Well, that’s where the problem lies. It’s called Classic, because it’s the same stock we used for our MiniCards – for us, it sort of is a classic.
But ‘Classic’ implies… a textured stock perhaps, something a little more old fashioned. Maybe you’d think it was an off white – rather than the bright white it is, maybe you’d think it wouldn’t print photos so well…
There’s also the fact that our standard, ‘Classic’ paper is thicker than the standard used by many other printing companies. We just have ‘premium paper’ – we don’t really like the bendy stuff that gets all messed up before you’ve even handed it over.
We need a new name for our ‘Classic’ paper. Something that describes the feel, and the quality.
(If you need more details, its 16pt/350gsm, matte laminated, sustainably sourced and Elemental Chlorine Free.)
Answers in the comments – and the best one wins a box of Classic (grr) Business Cards or MiniCards.
The team here at MOO will be reading your paper name ideas over the weekend and the winner will be announced on Monday 17th May. Keep your eyes peeled…
Call it sMOOth – it relays the lovely texture and its sheer simplicity!
We’re going for a reassuring, tea and a biscuit, slippers on, buttermints, log fire, free carriage clock when you join, ‘back in my day’ feel here. The ™ is very important.
What about “sMOOth like Butter” paper? Or MOOtiful paper? I think you guys are great!
Moo Pure – purely classic, the original, pure in enviromental credentials, pure white…
Moo Cool – cool colour, cool as in ‘great’…
Moo White – goes with Moo Green
Moo Bright – as in bright white, bright ideas…
I don’t think I can top what you already have, here.. how about Moo Sleek?
Hopefully i’ll be hearing from you soon
Moo Proof – Resistant, perfect for bringing in your wallet or Proof like collection coins (“Collection Cards”)
Keep the good work
I’ll second sMOOth
MOO Divine Bovine
I would call is MOO Stock. It’s your own variant on cardstock, and implies a thicker build.
Its Moo + Paper
How about Moo Cow (Chlorine Free, Original, White)
Just a thought
How about Moo Plus?
How about “Moo Contemporary” or “Contemporary Moo” or “SignatureMoo” or PremoMoo?????
I agree with Gareth and several others – Mooriginal.
I’ll be here all night!
I like Moo One too.
Moo Shiny (bonus points for the Firefly/Serenity reference)
and then you can explain the difference. however, i like original moo because it shows that you all were eco-friendly/green to begin with and then just took the new paper to the next level with the wind energy, etc.
ps: thanks for being awesome:)
