Postcards from the edge

16th March 2011 by Charlotte

Well, we knew it wouldn’t take you long to grab our new double-sided Postcards and put your personal stamp all over it – and we weren’t disappointed. Over the last few months, we’ve been watching Flickr with a hawk-eye for anything extraordinary, and as you can see, we were spoilt for choice.

Stylish photographer Kylie Clarke Photography has taken full advantage of being able to upload pdfs to both sides of the Postcard, by branding both sides of her promo Postcards with her arresting images, plus contact details.

After 19 months of freelancing Peter Guthrie was ready to begin marketing his services properly. He displays a range of beautiful architectural renderings on the front of these MOO Postcards. On the back he adds his contact details and also a thumbnail selection of his work, so that the recipient can get a full impression of his portfolio.

Multidisciplinary artist and Etsy crafter Madeline Norris aka Meeni also makes fantastic use of the double-sided feature. She’s uploaded scans of genuine vintage Postcards that have shades of the 1930’s travelling circus about them. She hands them out at wedding fairs to promote her commemorative portraits and painting services.

Illustrator Lisa Manuels uses MOO Postcards in a traditional way – she uploads her cute images, and sells the to customers who can’t get enough of her work, no matter what the format.

    Certainly did not expect to bump into my own postcards on this blog, how cool! Thank you!
    I’ve ordered greeting cards and stickers a few days ago and of course I’m looking forward to receiving them; love your services, MOO!

  2. Laurie:

    I LOVE my postcards! MOO service and quality was awesome. I created the postcard as a ‘Save the Date’ reminder for my dad’s 80th birthday party and everyone has loved them…now I’m trying to figure out my next MOO project…maybe a set of postcards with different pics of the birthday boy to hand out at the party…or maybe the small business cards…can’t decide!

    Laurie
    You could use the postcards as invites to the birthday boy’s bash.
    I’m going to turn the postcards into invites for my 40th.

  4. lanne:

    Kylie’s images rock and look so great on these postcards. I might have to look into ordering some too.

  5. Carmen:

    I am really excited about this because I need to order more business cards soon! Oh, and Peter Guthrie is amazing!

  6. Architectural visualisations:

    Peter Guthrie’s work is absolutely amazing, and these little cards make his stuff look very impressive
