Well, it’s been a long time coming, but at last we’re extremely excited to be able to show you a sneaky peak of our latest product. Still in development (but almost there), it’s called The MightyCard.
Since the launch of the MiniCard, many of our customers have said ‘They’re great – great quality, great options, but… so Mini! I need something bigger to really impress my business clients. I feel inadequate handing over such a small card. What does it say about me? Small company, small pockets, small… I just need for something bigger.’
The MightyCard is the ideal solution. Here’s Richard Moross, our CEO on the way to a meeting. It’s an important meeting – he needs to make a good …Continue reading this article…
It’s awfully glamorous working at MOO, as I’m sure you can imagine. Based in the heart of the up-and-come ‘East End’ of London, we’re working in a place steeped in history, industry and creativity. The oldest printing company in the country is just around the corner. The first magazine in England was published about 5 minutes from here and Charles Dickens set the scene for much of ‘Oliver’, on the Green around the corner. If that wasn’t enough, Madonna and Alexander McQueen have been spotted hanging out in the very market where the MOO Crew buy their lunch.
Yep, the glamour never stops. Or, that’s what we tell ourselves when faced …Continue reading this article…
Here we are, just a few days after Easter, and already the Egg Hunt seems like ages ago. It’s not over yet though, don’t forget – the grand prize draw is still to come, on April 21st! In the meantime, look at this:
It’s MOO’s very own Mexican Wrestling Eggs, in real life! Painted very carefully by tonya2hadassah. We can only applaud such a steady hand and such dedication. Amazing!
There’s been lots of great stuff whizzing by in the Flickr pool recently – here’s a few colourful photos to get your creative juices flowing:
Cards and photo by ‘Hello I’m James’, to promote ‘Gimme’, his new Facebook App.
Lovely card and packaging, by ‘Pukashell …Continue reading this article…
First up, something to make you smile. The wonderful Jonathan Howells, film making star of the MOO Egg Hunt has finished his latest masterpiece. You met ‘Hugo, The Cat of 1000 Faces’, while searching for Eggs – here we present Episode 3, The Star Wars special. We’re not sure who we love best, Leia, Darth or Yoda… Enjoy!
Next-up, something to read. We’ve talked about Flickr user Epmd many times before. He’s been leaving MiniCards in various places around the globe as an ongoing ‘Found Art’ project. Now he talks about the project in this great article on JPG.
Epmd has also inspired other Flickr …Continue reading this article…
Yes, after all this time, our very own, custom designed MiniCard holders are in stock and available to buy! Forgive me for sounding over-excited, but really, we’ve waited so long for these, we’re like Children at Christmas now they’re here.
They’re specially designed for MOO, by Steven Jones, and hold up to 15 cards. You can slide them open with your thumb, and there’s a special ramp inside to help the cards come out easily.
They’re designed to be opened and dispense cards with one hand, so you can hold a drink in the other, and not spill it on the oh-so-important person you’ve just met. “My Card” – you can say, with a slightly raised, James Bond eyebrow, …Continue reading this article…
It’s Friday afternoon! That’s exciting for two reasons – maybe even three. First up, of course, it’s nearly the weekend, and you can’t really complain about that… Second, the MOO Great Outdoors Egg Hunt starts tomorrow at 12.01am GMT! Yes, we’ve hidden Eggs all over the world – little stickers – and they could be hiding in a city near you.
Our team of global friends have hidden eggs everywhere from London to Montreal, Bordeaux to Oaxaca. Not to mention; Tokyo, Paris, Niagra Falls, Toronto, New York, Brighton, Glasgow, BC, Oslo, Barcelona, Brussels, Silicon Valley, Wellington, Oxford, Austin, Konstanz and San Francisco!
Hidden up trees, in bars, stuck to statues, on walls, by rivers, near bridges, at the theatre, …Continue reading this article…
One of the cool things about MOO products is that you can hand them to new people to introduce yourself, and you have the immediate potential of making new friends. Making new friends is nice. New friends make you smile – sometimes they even make you laugh. (Occasionally they send you sweets… not that I’m hinting or anything.)
For quite some time we in the MOO office have wondered exactly who it is that works over the road from us. Their office kind of looks into ours, and we can see enough of theirs to know they have a huge map on the wall. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just reach over, hand them a MiniCard and say ‘Hi! …Continue reading this article…
Moo’s having a party – and we want you to join in the fun! At our parties in San Francisco and London we exhibited just a few different people’s cards. This time? This time we want to exhibit hundreds! We’re going to thread them together to make a HUGE banner, showcasing your fantastic photography, illustrations, and designs.
Want to exhibit your card as part of the banner and show your work to the world? There are 3 easy ways to take part.
1) Post us a MiniCard to:
The SXSW Banner-maker
MOO Print Ltd.,
6 Baker’s Yard,
(please note, we wont be able to return your card)
2) email the image you’d like on a card to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll use …Continue reading this article…
Or the Oyster, anyway. Not long ago, Meg Pickard, MOO friend, inventor of the anti-valentine card – and the MOOgnet – blogged about her Stickers, and the fact they’re the perfect size for an ‘Oyster’ card holder.
For the un-initiated, ‘Oysters’ are a London thing. No, it’s not a deep-seated love of expensive bivalve mollusks, merely the the crazy-spectacular name for bus/train pass, available from London Transport.
(Personally, I think they called it that because they planned it to go in a holder like this and they think that opening up the ‘shell like’ holder reveals the ‘pearl’ of a card inside. What do you think? Have I over thought this? Have you ever travelled in London? …Continue reading this article…
Eeek. We’re a bit late to wish you Happy Valentine’s Day in Europe, but don’t think that’s because we don’t care. We do. We’ve just been busy wading through all the piles of roses, chocolates and flowers delivered to the office… you know how it is. We’re such a good looking bunch it’s hard for people not to fall in love with us, really.
But enough about us, and more about you. Our designers have a few things they’d like to get off their chests…
In the grand scheme of things, and scientifically speaking, you’ve definitely achieved rock star status in our eyes. Yep, you really are more ‘B’ than ‘A’…
…So much so, you should …Continue reading this article…
