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 went ahead with the improvements to our tools, then we took some time to think about what our designers most need. We came up with a list of features, then boiled them right down to the following:
In addition we had two guiding principles:
Ok, so isn’t exactly a snappy title, there wasn’t a whole lot of budget left for that. The good news is that we now have a tool that’s quick and easy to use, whether you are on a computer or a tablet. You can even use it on a mobile device (full disclosure: you do have to be pretty geeky for that).
Thank goodness!! Uploading full front/back designs to the site was always the most confusing/complicated/annoying part of the entire process (which was otherwise quite good!) I couldn’t be happier about this, and can’t wait to upload my next set of cards with this new system!
It’s funny, because right before I saw this story in the newsletter in my inbox, I was thinking about using Moo to print a deck of divination cards that I’ve designed. I was wondering if I could upload a single design on the back, and get rounded corners and a nice glossy finish. Synchronicity can be downright scary sometimes.
Thanks for being so awesome!!!
Does this work with greetings cards as well?
I’d love to be able to print on all four sides of a greetings card. I know the exact position of the fold can’t be determined, but uploading one image for the outer sides and one for the inner sides allows you to ‘flow’ the design from the front to the back…
I can’t wait…
Great improvements! Is it on the roadmap to make the normal process available without Flash?
Also I too would love if letterpress would come in the future, it definitely has a certain charm to it.
Thanks and keep up the great work!
