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…
As you know, we love photos, cameras and anything to do with photography. And we know you do too. So on this chilly Friday afternoon, over in London, we bring you two pieces of photography related news!
The first thing that we think deserves a mention is a brilliant idea called the Disposable Memory Project. It’s a simple but totally addictive idea. A team of these guys have traveled round the world, leaving behind disposable cameras as they go, in the hope they’ll be picked up, passed on, and eventually return home full of photographs.
If you find a camera (yes, it can be you), take a few photos where you’re standing …Continue reading this article…
Happy Black Friday everyone!
In light of the biggest shopping day of the year (for us Americans – yes, there are a few of us in MOO studios), after you’ve done all your shopping, we know there’s a mountain of wrapping you’ll have to do! It’s really my favorite part of the holidays. I have oodles of paper, and ribbon and ornaments that I’ve collected over the last 10 years! Not sure about the rest of you, but I really do appreciate a nicely wrapped gift. It makes it more special somehow.
If you’re looking for a quick n’ crafty Christmas gift to make – either alone while you enjoy some peace and quiet, or with the kids for added noisey fun – you could think about something like this great little calendar, made by jbloomphotos.
She’s mixed more traditional scrapbooking materials with family photos, printed on MiniCards. It adds an extra personal touch, and makes for an ideal present to send in the post to family far away. If you’re really clever, you could make the MiniCards removable, so as the month ends, they could be used for bookmarks too. The beautiful ones below were made by Emmalynne
MiniCards are acid and lignin free, incidentally, …Continue reading this article…
One of the best things about working for MOO is that we’re lucky enough to have incredibly creative customers. If we’re ever stuck for inspiration all we need to do is look at the beautiful cards whizzing by in the warehouse, or the amazing store of photographs in the MOO Flickr pool.
We’ve seen designers and photographers, crafters, makers and bakers all printing with MOO – but until now, we’d never seen a StickerBook of images quite like this:
After far too long spent …Continue reading this article…
Some of the MOO Crew are a bit tired today, after staying up till the wee small hours watching the USA election results as they rolled in. Election fever has touched everyone around the globe, feelings are running high – and people are documenting how they feel everywhere. Brendan Dawes, designer, developer, author and all-round lovely chap, has found a way capture this mood.
Using the combined power of the We feel fine and MOO Api he’s created 100 Feelings felt. It pulls out the most recent 100 feelings from We feel fine, and creates 100 different MiniCards. It’s a perfect snapshot of time – each MiniCard is printed with a description or emotion on …Continue reading this article…
And so, our Caption Competition comes to a close. It’s been great fun for us over the last 12 days, hunting down photos to use and reading your captions – some made us laugh, some were kinda sweet and a fair few made us think ‘umm, what?!’ We hope you’ve had as much fun as we have, and thanks very much to everyone who’s taken part.
Next we’re going through all the captions again, to pick out the winners. We’ll be picking two captions per photo (hopefully) and announcing the winners in the blog by the end of the week. Good luck!
In the midst of the excitement of the past few weeks, we’ve also launched a brand new product – …Continue reading this article…
