A few days ago, we received a top secret special something that made everyone at MOO HQ very, very happy – and we hope it’s going to make you all equally happy (as soon as we’re allowed to reveal what it is). When we posted a picture on Twitter, you made us laugh so much with your impromptu guesses (yes, “Wardrobe to Narnia” and “Time Machine”, we’re talking to you) that we thought we’d have a little fun. So, over the next few weeks, we’re running a competition called “What’s in the box?”
We’re looking for the most fun and fabulous guesses you can come up with – and since we know you’re an uber-creative community, don’t be afraid to (ahem) think outside the box (Oh dear. That was terrible, wasn’t it? That’s what happens when you try to box clever…)
-Post your guesses in the comment section below (though if you do want to put your “answer on a postcard”, you’ll get brownie points if you made it at MOO!). If you don’t see your comment immediately, it’s just because we do have to check that they are nice and clean first – remember your mother could be reading this!
-The closing date is Sunday 17 April 11.59pm PT and we’ll announce the winner on the blog in the week beginning Monday 18 April
-The final decision will be made by Lisa, our very own VP of Marketing and Product
What’s the prize, we hear you shout? Glad you asked! The person who comes up with our favourite guess will win themselves £100 / $165 to spend with MOO.
Let the guessing games begin!
It’s a coffin for outdated printing equipment and ideas.
It’s the first ever set of Giant MiniCards.
it’s a new printer??
naahh too obvious.. a bed!! XDD
Perhaps the box contains a rainbow. There’s got to be some magical source for the beautiful print colors Moo uses.
And of course, there’s a pot of gold with it, for the next generation of Moo printing! Gold embossing!
Taking a guess at the dimensions, I’ll go with 2 metres tall, by 1 metre wide, by half a metre deep. A pile of ten Moo Mini Cards is about 5mm high, 70mm wide and 28mm deep.
Working with these dimensions, you could fit roughly 980,000 mini cards in that box. If you got a few Moo staff members to gently push and squeeze you could get that number up to 1,000,000 mini cards in a box.
So that’s my answer – 1 Million Moo Mini Cards. Why you would do that is beyond me, but I’ve contacted a representative from the Guinness Book of Records and they’re on standby.
Then again, there could be a fox locked in the box. A fox wearing socks with clocks.
A clock sock wearing fox who makes cards with wood blocks on colored paper stock or even nice, flat rocks.
It’s Micro Moo, a new Print Robot that will serve tea and offer foot massages to Little Moo and Big Moo.
Charlie Sheen? winning answer!!?!
the answer gotta be “JACK”
Lurking in that box is a giant, desperate easter bunny monster, made up of all the other discarded, boring business cards that are out there. The bunny has travelled to Moo HQ, as it wants to be adopted and transformed into a happy, fabulous moo bunny made up of moo products!!
Is it a series of incrementally smaller boxes, until the final box which contains a monkey (wearing a hat) with very delicate and arty hands who will be responsible for hand-drawing and painting the best designs for new moo cards?
Hmmm…I think it’s a robot cow that will be the new mascot, painted orange and white and really anxious to get out of that box since he’s probably tilted up the wrong way. He will help around the office by eating (shredding) things and licking stamps. And just being cute to make the staffies smile.
It’s a box full of Pinocchio’s business cards. Like him, they are made of wood, dull, boring and lifeless…. the box has come to Geppetto “moo” to be transformed and given life!
a tiny office for ants. congratulations on branching out to the insect world!
grilled cheese sandwiches. many many many grilled cheese sandwiches. for everyone. and every new Moo customer will also get one delivered to them with their first order. two sammies if you make a referral to a friend. whoop!
Is it a cat, a container of poison and a radioactive source. The cat of course is both alive and dead.
its a box full of farm animals your branching out.
I think its a heard of mini moo cows who individually make mini moo cards, in individual mini moo boxes, who befriend every mini moo card orderer!!!
I think it’s a thing that’s used for doing stuff.
I have to admit, I wish I WAS in the box. I am so impressed with my first purchase of moo cards… esp the mini cards with the unlimited images on the backside, I am just dying to jump into that box and ship myself there so I can see first hand how cool your little print shop really is. I absolutely LOVE the paper stock and the high end quality of these at such affordable prices make my photography and design business look incredibly impressive and professional and i think everyone is filled envy. : ) When I open the box to share my cards its like eye candy… and people want more than one cuz they are soo fun! yay!~ so yes, i am on my way…look out moo people.
It’s a General Utility Non-theorizing Printing Control Robot á la Lost in space
It’s gotta be Lindsay Lohan….hiding from the judge, let her out on the courthouse steps please.
A family of refugees
A small shaved dwarf, a crate of beer, a football and a frisbee. The perfect ingredients for a summer party!
This box has been carefully positioned so as to obscure the air holes bored into the top and sides of it. Recently received via international courier, it contains Moo’s official new mascot: an Australian wombat. Like moo cards, the wombat is a versatile creature that in addition to livening up the office, can stand in as an ottoman in a pinch!
According to Google you have a Dallas night club in there called the Curtain Club (214 6207) or possibly a small Louis XIV style antique fireplace in Verde Antico white veined green marble with a moulded serpentine shelf and scrolled, panelled jambs (6207 print)
Personally, I think it’s an Allure 6207 Strapless Print Dress
I don’t know what’s in the box, but it keeps saying “Bugrit. Millenium hand and Shrimp!”
