Too pretty to open – creative packaging with MOO

October 2012, by Andrea | 9 Comments – latest by Photo Booth

Obviously you want people to open the present they’ve received or parcel they’ve ordered – but if you’ve done a great job with the packaging, they’ll probably think twice about ripping the paper off without taking the time to admire the effort!

Once again, we turn to our creative community for inspiration – because while we make the cards, we never stop learning ways to use them from you. And these three examples are a really good start to unleashing your pretty packaging potential.

Photographer Robyn’s an old friend of MOO – and she’s a lady who understands the positive power of packaging. She creates festive MiniCardContinue reading this article…

Here’s looking at Euclid

October 2012, by Rebeka | Add a comment

The Luxe Project has been busy partnering with renowned designers to offer exclusive Luxe Business Card designs for a full year. And since we believe great design can change the world, 100% of all net proceeds will be donated to the designer’s charity of choice.

We’ve had some fantastic offerings from Michael Osbourne, Dan Rubin, Katie Barcelona, and Sean Adams. And in our fifth installment of The Luxe Project, we introduce Helen Friel. A paper engineer based in London, Helen’s work spans huge a range and reflects a dark sense of humor and her clients include Vogue, Vanity Fair, Time and Harrods.

Here’s looking at Euclid

Inspired by Oliver Byrne’s 1847 version of Euclid’s Elements, these designs are a startlingly modern …Continue reading this article…

MOO and Improved – Part II

October 2012, by Aaron T | 12 Comments – latest by Double U.

We quite enjoy watching dodgy sequels, you know, the ones that went straight to DVD! But when it comes to our website upgrades at MOO, our sequels just keep getting better…

We ‘re always exploring new ways to make life easier for our customers. When we were improving our upload, image and design tools recently we had one reservation, “What about all the designers in our coMOOnity? None of these improvements are going to make life easier for them”.

You see we have noticed that a great many of you arrive at moo.com with complete designs – some great ones too – for both sides of your cards. You don’t need MOO tools and templates; you just need a great printer.

Well we …Continue reading this article…

Scary good ideas from our Halloween competition winners

October 2012, by Jon | 6 Comments – latest by tankrides

Despite not having the scariest of product ranges (what could be scary about Business Cards?) we do quite enjoy Halloween here at MOO HQ. Mainly because it gives us an excuse to dress up in silly costumes and eat lots of tasty treats.

And with fright night only a couple of weeks away, we’d thought we would ask for inspiration from our wonderful customers. We asked you to show us your uses of MOO products in your Halloween celebrations. And we were absolutely delighted with what you showed us. Here are our favourites.

These tasty (trust us, we sampled them!) and stylishly wrapped Pate de Fruits by our friends at Zukr Boutique who use …Continue reading this article…

Celebrity Cards – our Lego photography winner

October 2012, by Jon | 14 Comments – latest by Ali

For our most recent design competition, we combined the launch of our Gloss Business Cards and MiniCards, a love of Lego (which we had a hunch many of you would share!) and a love of classic photography and art. Phew! With such a broad range of inspiration, we received a wide range of submissions, from film and music posters to classic and modern paintings.

We’re very pleased to announce that Chris Marwood has been chosen as our winner! Chris’ ‘subterranean’ design appealed to the music fans at MOO HQ and the fact that the whole image is composed purely from Lego. Fantastic. Chris wins the lovely prize of $300 cash and $100 …Continue reading this article…
