Got Milk?

January 2008, by Denise | Add a comment

There’s a lot of creativity lurking among the MOO customers. Sometimes it inspires us, sometimes it makes us laugh, and often the ideas are so good we wonder how come we hadn’t thought of doing it ourselves. Then… well, then there’s the Milk n MOO pool.

‘Milk n MOOs? What can that be?’ I hear you cry. Well, to quote from the group directly, it’s ‘Photos including milk and moo cards’. Obviously. What else did you think it would be?

These are just a few of our favourite photos:

This is absolutely fantastic, by emelynilsson. She says ‘The evolution of Milk starts with MOO and ends with Butter.’ (Click the image to see it larger.)

Paper trails to hearts and minds skulls

January 2008, by Denise | 4 Comments – latest by Denise

There’s always something nice about a handmade gift. And if you can’t make a gift yourself, well, the next best thing is the wrapping. The link I lost the other day has been found – it’s this beautiful paper-heart box. Perfect for a little Valentine gift – your last Rolo, a diamond ring, or a little magnet decorated with a MOO Sticker.

Darren Scott, an Australian based origami artist has made the template available for download as a PDF. If you’d like to make one yourself, you can find it here.

But if that’s just too hearty for you, and your Valentine has slightly alternative tastes, then this could do the trick:

It’s …Continue reading this article…

Love? I’m over it.

January 2008, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by rafting

Don’t love Valentine’s day? We know. We’re worried no one will send us a card either. I mean… Yeah! We think it’s rubbish too. Ahem.

So much so that we twisted Meg Pickard’s arm, and demanded she add her Anti-Valentines cards to our offering this year. They’ve been available as e-cards on her own site for the last year or two, and we think they

Kirigami, I love you

January 2008, by Denise | 3 Comments – latest by monica

Whilst looking for a link which is so far remaining irritatingly elusive, I stumbled across kirigami. You might know origami, the art of folding paper? Well kirigami is a close relative. It’s the art of folding and cutting paper.

If you’re the crafty type and you’re thinking of making something a little different for Valentines day, then these images might give you some inspiration. If you don’t fancy making something yourself, relax, grab a drink, and look at the beautiful photos.

lilzabubba started my introduction to the world of kirigami. She’s created a variety of different ‘snowflakes’. This one is particularly relevant to Valentines day – but the whole set is really worth a look.

There’s an infinite number …Continue reading this article…

Who do you love?

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

Anyone? No one? Someone… but you haven’t told them yet? Shockingly, if you want to make a really personal Valentines card or present this year, you need to start thinking about this now. How do I know? Well, because people are already blogging about it. And, lets face it, it takes time to think of what you want to make, get something printed and then to work your own special magic on it.

We’re busy working on a few ideas of our own, and will share them with you over the next few weeks. In the meantime,here’s an idea to get you started – look at this, by Steve O:

It’s 100 MiniCards, carefully mounted into a shadow …Continue reading this article…

Doing something different

January 2008, by Denise | 3 Comments – latest by Denise

Happy New Year! If you’re looking for a new hobby to start 2008, or something to get your creative juices flowing, you could do a lot worse than check out the MOO Flickr pool. And I’m not just talking about making MiniCards, I’m talking about all the great pictures people put on the cards. There’s a wealth of creativity and extraordinary hobbies and pastimes out there – these are a few we’ve spotted.

Henna Bee uses her cards to show off the amazing henna tattoos she creates.

If this idea appeals, check out more of her photos, she’s created some beautiful designs.

If you fancy something more permanent, how about chainmail? We came across these photos …Continue reading this article…

Friday photo niceness (and happy holidays!)

December 2007, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Sunny

Time for a round up of some of the great MOO photography we’ve spotted out there recently. A relaxing little read for a Friday afternoon…

Look at these lovely designs for Stickers, by shutterblog! Nice subtle colours and strong graphics make for great Stickers to be used on envelopes and gift bags.

piktorama* is a MOO designer, and these are some of the lovely Postcards she’s made, using her own designs.

Gumby and Pokey are old MOO friends (scroll!), and look – they like Stickers too! This photo was taken by horizontal.integration

Do you ever wish computer commands would hop off the computer and into your real life? Well, Flickr …Continue reading this article…

MOO’s Super-Duper Holiday Card Competition – WINNERS!

December 2007, by Kim | 2 Comments – latest by Shirley Rush Dean

Hello

Well, our marvellous judges have judged, and our hardworking database bees have totted up the totals… and it’s time to announce the winners of MOO’s Super-Duper Holiday Card Competition.

We have four winners, one in each category: Best Photo, Best Non-Photo, Best Selling and Funniest. It’s been amazingly hard judging the brilliant entries – every single one of the three thousand, four hundred and thirty four designs in the pool is someone’s hard work and holiday cheer. We really appreciate the time everyone put in to making the competition such an amazing success.

We’ve also picked six runners up – entries that were in the running up to the very shortest of shortlists. This is to make the …Continue reading this article…

Blimey. a non-happy day at MOO

November 2007, by stefan | 10 Comments – latest by Denise

Well, it’s nearly over, but that was the kind of day that CTOs tell their children at night if they want them to be daredevil stuntmen when they grow up instead.

Starting at around 6pm last night, we started experiencing beeeg trouble with our main disk array. All the alarms went off, and Mike, our Techy Infradoodads Manager dashed down to Brick Lane to recover it from the backup. It took almost about 20 hours to get the site fully operational (direct uploads were particularly stubborn) but things are now fine again.

I’m sorry to everyone who tried to place orders today and had trouble -we had a number of false starts where we thought we had it working and then …Continue reading this article…

Cards and Good Cheer

November 2007, by Kim | Add a comment

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in the MOO offices – Greeting Cards are flying off the presses, and London is seasonably cold and damp.

Sensible Denise looked at the weather forecast for this week and decided it was the perfect time to visit Petra in the Jordanian Desert; she’s left me in charge of the blog. Hello!

We’re not letting the rain get us down yet! Moo’s contribution to the Holiday spirit this year isn’t limited to our fab Greeting Cards. We’re also running a Super-Duper Holiday Card Competition for the best designs submitted to our special flickr group.

We’ve been amazed at the response – over a thousand of you have joined the flickr group, …Continue reading this article…
