One of our favourite things about Printfinity (that’s being able to put a different one of your lovely images on every card) is seeing all the clever, fun and inventive ways you use it to showcase what you do. That’s why we ran a competition all about Printfinity (after all, who doesn’t love a competition?).
We wanted to see how you used Printfinity to ensure that after that great networking moment, your brand new connection or customer remembers you and hopefully even recommends you to someone else!
We hope you’re as excited as us about finding out who the winner is, so we’ll get right to it. Let’s give a big round of virtual applause (and some less virtual MOOlah, of …Continue reading this article…
It’s not every day we get our glad rags on over here at MOO (we’re a pretty casual bunch). But last week’s Design Week Awards in London were certainly worth digging out our bow-ties and high heels for.
We were genuinely privileged to be a part of such a prestigious event in the world of design. And not just because Design Week celebrates creative minds and rewards excellence, (or the delicious food!). No, we were most excited because our very own Head of Design Anna Ebubedike was presenting an award – and she did a lovely job too!
It’s fair to say it’s been a busy few months here at MOO HQ. We like to do everything we can to help you achieve the great design you want across all of our products, so we’ve been working extra hard to deliver a whole bunch of changes that we think will make the MOO experience just that little bit easier and more enjoyable for you.
New range of templates
For a start, we’ve introduced a range of templates for you to use on the image side of our Business Cards, MiniCards and Postcards. Previously you could only upload a single image, but now you can get a lot more creative with your design, and you don’t …Continue reading this article…
At MOO, there are few things we love more than great stationery and beautiful design (though pugs and cake certainly come close!), which is why our Luxe Project – where some of our favorite designers take a turn at designing our products – has always been a favorite of ours.
This month – hot off the heels of our Typography week – our Luxe designer is illustrator and letterer extraordinaire Jessica Hische. Her long list of clients include Penguin Books, Wes Anderson, Starbucks, Mailchimp – and now MOO!
We chatted with Jessica about her recent Luxe Project, inspired by her Daily Drop Caps project in 2009, and about all things type.
Let’s start from the …Continue reading this article…
Imagine our luck this year when we found out HOW Design Live, one of the biggest national design conferences in the US, would be hosted in Boston – home to our newest MOO office! Needless to say, we had quite a group of happy MOO Crew members in attendance.
Now, as the conference comes to a close, we thought we’d give you a little round-up of what went down. Here are five things we enjoyed at HOW Design Live this year.
1.) We got to share a booth with our partners in premium paper crime, Mohawk!
It was a pretty lovely set-up if we do say so ourselves – and we loved …Continue reading this article…

We spent last week knee-deep in letters, head to head font battles, a designing with type competition and typeface guessing. You all seemed fairly excited for #MOOTypeWeek and even sent us some of your favorite type examples (although we could spend forever talking about hand lettering versus typography!)

The MOO offices are always bubbling over with creativity, and because we know how much music helps us get into the mood, we thought we’d share some of our musical inspiration with you. In short, we decided to make you a mixtape.
And it felt right that our first ever playlist had the theme of something that’s truly close to our heart – paper. We even managed to find a couple songs about Business Cards!
Click the picture below to start listening (you’ll have to log into Spotify, but the desktop playlist is free to listen to) or click here to listen in Spotify. Got any you’d like us to add? Comment below or tweet us on @overheardatmoo with you …Continue reading this article…
Ever since we launched our brand new Letterheads at the beginning of April, we’ve been pretty smitten with them. So much so, that in addition to designing some brilliant professional stationery for you and your business, we’ve also made a few designs purely for fun.
Our creative team got together and did what they do best – create! – and dreamt up some Letterhead designs for famous figures in history. They ranged from Ian Fleming to Charles Darwin to Albert Einstein.
We didn’t think we deserved all the fun though – so we thought we’d ask you to take part in a little design competition. We’d love to see what you’d come up with for …Continue reading this article…
We’ve launched Letterheads, and now it’s time to design yours. Yay! If you’re not sure how to get started, never fear – we’ve asked some of our very own designers who helped create our lovely Letterheads to show you exactly how it’s done. MOO fans, meet Stephen, Sophia and Jaime. They’ve gathered together to bring you their top hints and tips on how to work your existing theme into a striking Letterhead. Over to the experts…
I want to design a Letterhead! Where do I start?
Letterheads are the perfect place to get creative with your brand, but they’re also a practical document too, so your design should complement your content rather than distract from it. …Continue reading this article…
A couple of weeks ago we asked you to have a little fun with type for #MOOTypeWeek by designing an image using only characters and symbols. We had lots of entries, ranging from intricate portraits to incredible wildlife,scenes. It’s fair to say, it made it hard for our team to pick a winner! Eventually, we managed…
So without further ado, our winner of the Design with Type competition is Stéphanie Gagnon, with her antlered friend:
This deer is beautifully laid out from the bottom of his chin to the tips of his majestic antlers. Simply done, but a more than worthy winner of a bit of MOOlah and a classy journal!
We wanted …Continue reading this article…
