Too pretty to open – creative packaging with MOO

30th October 2012 by Andrea

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 MiniCard gift tags and Stickers every year for her online shop Paperie Boutique customers – and as everyone knows, you can’t go wrong with a classic candy cane.

Fotomarathon Berlin is a non-profit photo contest that spans 12 hours, and themes revealed every 4 hours, culminating in an exhibition of over 8000 photos! “This jar was a thank you to our sponsors, containing a 3.5 m long filmstrip with one of the photo series exhibited that year.” And of course, no gift jar – be it photos, jam or something else delicious – is complete without a QR coded MiniCard gift tag and logo sticker!

Cupcakes for Clara is a collection of whimsical goodies from puppet maker and master crafter Laura Clempson. Laura makes paper dolls, stationery, art prints and more – including these fantastic notecard sets, complete with a sheet of festive Stickers. Fantastic!

  2. Embassy Ofd:

    At Embassy Ofd we LOVE moo cards, the quality and customer service is unbeatable!

    We are currently using our moo cards as both a business card and a swing tag for our Luxury Ostrich Feather Dusters, I can’t recommend highly enough

  3. Urbanknit:

    Hmmm, you’ve just given me a good idea on how to use the mini stickers for customer packages during the festive period. Danke.

  4. Sara:

    Beautiful! That’s a great idea. I use my Moo stickers when I send holiday packages. They brighten up the free boxes from USPS.

  5. Emilie:

    Ooooh! I ♥ the mini stickers… I think that will be my next MOO purchase! :)

  6. Abigail Tyrrell:

    Thanks for the ideas! Am currently using the sticker books to create inspection stickers for my lingerie – the stickers have pictures of my cats on them with “Inspected by..”. My customers love them. But using the labels for bottles and box covers… genius! Was wondering how to label my upcoming perfume – thanks for the great ideas!


    Thank you for the inspiration! Just received the box of business cards from Moo and LOVE the packaging. Can’t wait to see people’s faces when they receive the cards.

    Wish I could order dozens from these. Perfect for the holiday season

  9. Photo Booth:

    Very good I am going to order some for your Christmas Photo Booth Party for our customers
