Things to do, while working from home

February 2009, by Denise | 6 Comments – latest by Jennifer

Depending on where you are the world, you may or may not know that London, home of both MOO and most of it’s employees, has been overcome by snow. We don’t do ‘weather’ well in this country, really – whatever weather we get, it always comes as a bit of a shock, and so buses, trains, tubes etc are still working out if they can run or not. At time of writing, most are favouring ‘not’.

Consequently, many of the MOO Crew are working from home – and judging from the Twitters we’ve seen, many of you are too. Once you’ve come in from playing in the snow – sorry, working in the snow – you’ll be needing …Continue reading this article…

Making the most of your unique creations

January 2009, by Denise | 4 Comments – latest by Denise

We see lots of designers and crafters making Business Cards and MiniCards with MOO. Some use them as a regular Business Card, like these, by Ray

Others, like Aaldea Broches incorporate them as part of their packaging:

Or like Jessica Wilson, as part of a display:

Today, we came across these, by T-shirt designer, Squink.

The cute cards on top are for use as regular business cards, but the ones underneath…

are Business Cards printed on our Green stock – which is perfect for writing on…

These cards are signed, numbered certificates, which travel with each limited edition T-shirt sold! Squink’s designer, Chris, uploaded a complete …Continue reading this article…

Tips for keeping track of your freelance cash

January 2009, by Denise | 11 Comments – latest by Pia K

Here at MOO, we’re seeing more and more people heading out into the freelance or small business world. As a few of the MOO team have been freelancers at different times in our careers, we can’t help but discuss how some things have changed for the better – and other things never seem to get any easier.

One question that’s always tricky to figure out is how much you should charge for your work. Too much, and you’ll never get the clients. Too little, and not only will you be out of pocket, but you’ll start feeling like your work is under valued (and if that’s the situation, you’ll wonder why you ever quit the rat-race in the first place).

Luckily, one …Continue reading this article…

Making MOO Business Cards just got easier

January 2009, by Denise | 34 Comments – latest by TONY c r

As you may know, we like to listen to your feedback. Hearing your thoughts on our products and the way they’re made helps us to improve things not only for you as an individual, but for everyone. As you may also know, we’ve added tweaks here and there to our Business Card process in the past, and this week – due to popular demand – we’ve added a ‘preview’.

What does this mean? It means that you can preview the front and back of your cards together, as you make them.

The first place you’ll spot it, is the page where you add your details – click the ‘Check preview’ link in the bottom left hand corner. …Continue reading this article…

A calendar you might actually like…

January 2009, by Denise | 10 Comments – latest by Money Saving Girl

It’s that time of year again – the time when lots of shops reduce the pricing on calendars left unsold after the Christmas rush. Not only that, but you didn’t get one for Christmas, and all that’s left are things like ‘Road signs of Europe’ or ‘Hard-hats we’ve loved and lost’, or something equally uninspiring.

The great people at PhotoJojo have just shared a much better idea, by one of their readers, Sandy Weisz. It’s a perpetual wall calendar, made with your own photos!

Nice, isn’t it? Also works as great motivation to get out there and start taking more photos – as you need at least one photo each, of the numbers 1 through 31, and a …Continue reading this article…

Good idea in a box

January 2009, by Denise | 4 Comments – latest by Joy Appleton

Well, we’re a little late with the new year greetings, but… Happy new year anyway! We hope you had a fun festive season and that being back in the office is bearable. Thanks to those on Twitter who kept us company on Christmas Eve – there’s nothing like a bit of solidarity to cheer up a mini-Christmas-MOO Crew!

For those too cold to get their brains working, or anyone still stuck in a post xmas fug, I thought I would share this idea for a nice little memory game, made with Business Cards. You don’t have to make one right now, but it’s so quick and easy you could save it for the next time you feel like …Continue reading this article…

Quizzes and Questions for New Year’s

December 2008, by Lisa | Add a comment

On this New Year’s Eve Eve, we figured some of you might be going a little stir crazy at home (too much of a good thing) or perhaps you’re one of the minority who’s working today and need a distraction. We definitely did. That is why what’s left of the MOO crew have been trying out some end-of-year quizzes.

However, before you get stuck in to some of these quizzes, we have a few questions for you about MOO. It should only take 5 minutes and we really do appreciate the answers. It’s the same survey that was in our Boxing Day newsletter. If you did complete that, you can skip this part and get right to the end-of-year brainteasers.

Here …Continue reading this article…

A New Year’s Eve Abroad

December 2008, by Emilie | 13 Comments – latest by Christina

Christmas is now at our door. Most people have already bought their Christmas and Holiday Cards. But some of us; Europeans and French, send cards for New Year. I moved to London 7 months ago from Paris and plan on keeping the very convenient French custom of sending cards in January, as well as kissing at Midnight on New Year’s Eve!

Speaking of the French, did you know that In France, New Year

Tips for going it alone

December 2008, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by Denise

After the financial stresses of recent months, we’ve come across lots of people who are thinking of going it alone. Some are ‘jumping before they’re pushed’ and others, who have been made redundant are thinking now could be as good a time as any to go freelance.

As someone who freelanced for two years before working at MOO, I always find listening to different people’s experiences really interesting. I personally stopped freelancing as the opportunity to work with MOO came along, and it sounded like fun (it is, actually). I was also quite tired – my office was my front room, and work was always there, in the corner of the room, needing to be done. It’s quite hard to …Continue reading this article…

Ways to get clients to love you

December 2008, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by raphael

Some time ago, the wonderful Chicago based photographer, Dawn M gave away a free photoshop template for making MiniCards. A raging success, we’ve seen the template used to great effect time and time again.

One of our other favourite photographers, Robyn, has recently used the templates herself… and look how cute the cards are!

More to the point – look how great they work when packged as a gift for clients:

Robyn has used the reverse of each card as a little contact form for playdates. Each pack of 100 MiniCards serves as a gift for 5 different clients (the parents of the photogenic babies) – each client receiving 20 cards. It’s …Continue reading this article…
