Susan Mitchell, and Scrapbooking

October 2007, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Michelle

I’ve mentioned the illustrator Susan Mitchell in our blog before. A children’s book illustrator, and greeting card designer, she was spotted in one of the MOO Swapping Flickr pools.

Well, I’m really excited to be able to tell you – she’s signed up as a MOO Designer! Choose from a selection of different illustrations, ranging from the more traditional greeting card style, to the beautiful luggage-tag collages, and use the images for MiniCards, NoteCards and Stickers.

There’s lots of beautiful illustrations for the young, and the young-at-heart…

And these fantastic images, drawn straight onto luggage tags.

Anyway, don’t take my word for it, have a little look yourself.

And while we’re *almost* on the …Continue reading this article…

Cart, cute bunnies, and bookish things

October 2007, by Denise | 7 Comments – latest by Denise

At last, we’ve struck something off our Big List of Things To Do! We’ve added a shopping cart facility to the site, to allow you to place multiple orders of different products at the same time. Its handy, not least because you can make, for example, a pack of MiniCards and then in no time at all, use the same set of images to make a StickerBook! Like items will ship together (so you don’t have to wait too long for your stuff), but you can order everything at once. We hope you find it useful.

We’ve also made another change to the site. We’ve added cute bunnies (and other things)! Graphic artist and writer Simone Lia is …Continue reading this article…

Halloween is coming!

October 2007, by Denise | 4 Comments – latest by Beth

Oh yes! October is here and Halloween is coming. We’re already quaking in our boots, but calming ourselves with the knowledge that there’s not a lot in this neck o’ the woods that’s scarier than the MOO Crew on a good night out.

We’ve been busy though – look!

All that Halloween schwag! We’ve made party invitations with NoteCards

If you fancy doing the same, you can use our designer content – go for something classically scary like this, from Brian Taylor:

or maybe cute – but scary – like this from Blanca Gomez:
.

There’s more Halloween content too, just have a look around and see what takes your fancy.

We made …Continue reading this article…

Early warning – possible postal delays.

October 2007, by Denise | 14 Comments – latest by Anna

We love our posties – the nice men and women at the Royal Mail Post Office. The European postal hub is opposite our office, and MOO even had a special tour when we started trading. We got to see secret underground mail trains and other stuff we’re Not Allowed To Talk About. *wink*

So I’m quite sad to tell you the frustrating news that Royal Mail might be going on strike. The plan is to strike for 4 days, which means
our deliveries in the UK and abroad could be delayed by at least 4 working days. We realise for some of you this isn’t much of a problem – but people wanting stuff urgently, please do take this into …Continue reading this article…

Beautiful idea for Stickers!

September 2007, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Deborah Read

It’s been crazily busy at MOO recently. We’re working on loads of new and exciting stuff at the moment and this week has been frantic, so it has to be something pretty cool that makes me want to make more Stickers at this time on a rainy Friday.

But look at these! Beautiful photographic Stickers turned into a wonderful promotional package, by yoshiko314.

She says ‘I hope someone wants to have one (or two, or more) of them at the photo exhibition.’
One or two? I want them all actually! What a great way to promote your work. I love this idea as an alternative ‘business card’.

What’s the time? Maybe I will just make a quick …Continue reading this article…

Travelling (s)miles by post

September 2007, by Denise | 9 Comments – latest by Margaret

Email isn’t as nice as post, is it? Well, sometimes it is – you know, when it’s something cool like an amazing job offer, but really, post is king. Finding a nice handwritten envelope in amongst the bills and junkmail is a real treat. Like kicking leaves in Autumn and finding a shiny new penny hiding underneath.

I’ve mentioned the MOOSwapping community before I think, people on Flickr and LiveJournal trading MiniCards. Very often people get creative with the way they send things, and these, sent out by the crocheted cat really tickled our fancy:

Word up! Top tip for primary school teachers

September 2007, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by Stefanie

Stefanie, a pre-service primary school teacher has come up with a great use for MiniCards. A LiveJournal user, she’s used the Text MiniCard option to make a a set of cards featuring the most commonly used words in the English language.

Each of the cards in the 100 pack has a different word, clearly written on a plain, but colourful background. She plans to use them as flash cards or prompt cards, and perhaps make a set of nouns or adjectives next.

We love this idea! (Actually we made a less educational version ourselves a while ago, and attached magnets to the back, for use as fridge poetry.)

If you’re not a LiveJournal user, but you’d still like …Continue reading this article…

Newsflash for scrapbookers!

September 2007, by Denise | 11 Comments – latest by Mariangeles from Spain

Are you a scrapbooker? We were asked when we launched Stickers if they were acid free and thus suitable for scrapbooking, and we were pleased to tell you they were.

We’ve been doing a bit for digging around since then, to find out anything else we could, and we’re really pleased to be able to tell you – direct from our paper mill – that the paper for MiniCards and NoteCards is both acid and lignin-free!

Now, if you’re new to scrapbooking and wondering what on earth I’m talking about – this page here might help. It explains acid and lignin and the problems they can cause to your work over time.

If you’re not a scrapbooker, …Continue reading this article…

MOO receives news from absent CTO

September 2007, by Denise | 9 Comments – latest by Stef

Isn’t the web great? Stef, our CTO has gone to Burning Man. Naturally we’re running amok in his absence, and he doesn’t know. (I hope). We know what he’s been up to though, as we’ve spotted him on Valleywag, handing out Stickers with gay abandon.

And what’s that on his thumb? Nail varnish? A bruise? Actually, is that even his thumb? I must say we’re pleased to see there’s what looks like a good selection of condiments in the background. It’s nice to know he’s eating well.

Once we’ve finished re-configuring everything we can lay our hands on in Stef’s absence, a few of the MOO crew are off to dconstruct, in Brighton, on Friday. If you’re …Continue reading this article…
