What’s your Mini-Moment?

September 2013, by Jamie | 7 Comments – latest by Admit

Life is made up of Mini Moments.

Hundreds of them come together to make up your day. They can come in all shapes and sizes and be as simple as the text message in the morning that made you smile, the newspaper article you couldn’t stop reading or that stumble in the street that you hoped nobody saw – but you know that everyone did!

We’d love to know what are some of your favourite Mini Moments throughout your day. So, *drumroll*, it’s competition time!

To enter, all you have to do is show us a Mini Moment from your day that makes you smile, or one you couldn’t live without, or even one that makes you want to …Continue reading this article…

Pleased to meet you – at the MOO Shop networking event

August 2013, by Melissa | Add a comment

Ever since the MOO Shop opened in February we’ve been holding evening talks every week or two. We curated a number of  speakers with great topics to help inspire our community – from Emma Jones of Enterprise Nation on “4 Ways to Grow Your Business” and our own Paul Thorogood, Head of Product Design on “How to Package Your Products in Style“.

The talks have been really informative and fun, but we noticed something…people were really loving the networking that happened after the talk. One week all of the attendees even decided to go all to the pub together afterwards!

We were …Continue reading this article…

Luxe: behind the scenes

August 2013, by Martin | 3 Comments – latest by Robert

When we began working on the expansion of Luxe, we don’t think anybody at MOO knew how much work we were going to be undertaking. Taking the Luxe family from a concept and turning that into a fully-fledged range of products took a lot of work – and we mean a *lot* of work.

Ever since we launched Luxe Business Cards at the beginning of 2012, we always knew there was more to the story. We’ve been actively working on extending our range of Luxe products since autumn 2012: finding out what you wanted to see, what products you’d like most and also trying …Continue reading this article…

Why, Thank You.

August 2013, by Paul T | 2 Comments – latest by Justin Caird-Daley

Thank you. What’s they best way of saying it? When is a text message not enough? How do you feel when you receive a ‘thank you note?’ These were just some of the questions that we thought about when designing our brand new thank you Notecards.

We all agreed – when you receive a ‘thank you’ note in the mail, it never fails to gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling (don’t worry, we’re not getting all soppy on you). In a world of emails, social media and texts, it’s all too easy to send a quick “thx”. So why does receiving a handwritten, personal note …Continue reading this article…

The joy of writing: when?

August 2013, by Jamie | 4 Comments – latest by Stephen Walker

Once upon a time, we’d be writing all the time: we’d be writing letters to declare war; to announce births and deaths; to charm a potential suitor; to say what we’d like for dinner. Now, however, writing a letter or note only occurs when something is more significant than the everyday.

The happiness behind writing may stem from when we do it most often: birthdays, holidays, and weddings, or when we want to offer more affection and support, where a phone call, email or text won’t cut it.

While sending letters has ceased to be our primary form of communication, it’s usually our favoured method of alerting people about special events. Due to the rarity of …Continue reading this article…

Calligraphy Quote Competition

August 2013, by Jamie | 2 Comments – latest by Emma

It’s fair to say that it probably took the MOO Crew no more than a couple of minutes before we were hooked on calligraphy. The calligraphy lesson at MOO HQ was great fun and inspiring too. Stepping away from the computer for a couple of hours to go back to basics was a breath of fresh air for us (and it helped that we got to be a little messy with the ink too!)

This all got the little creative cogs in our brain ticking over. Inspired, we took to the internet to track down some calligraphy shots to see how the pros do it. That’s not me suggesting we’re novices but some *might* say …Continue reading this article…

The joy of writing: to whom it may concern

August 2013, by Jamie | 1 Comment – latest by Steve Jeffery

Notes and letters are something to hold on to and cherish. We heard from so many people via Twitter, Facebook and on the Blog how a handwritten note can brighten up even the dreariest of days.

With their personal touch, they can really emphasise the amount of effort a person has made… which says so much more than just the words on the page. It seems there really is a joy in receiving, and writing a note.

You mostly write to those who you want to make feel special. Those who are worth spending that little extra time on – at least a little more than a 20 second email.

While …Continue reading this article…

When was the last time you wrote something? No, we don’t mean a text message. Or an email, blog post, Facebook status update or a tweet. When was the last time you put pen to paper and wrote a personal note to someone?

When we launched our Luxe Notecard, we asked ourselves this very question. To our surprise, a lot of us weren’t able to think back far enough to find the answer. We knew we had to do something about that.

There was only one …Continue reading this article…

MOO Hackday 2013

Pour la version française, c’est par ici.

After the success of last year’s MOO Hackday, we would’ve been crazy not to repeat the challenge (and fun!) this year. So that’s just what we did.

But what happens at a hackday at MOO? We’ll let Emily, one of our developers (and one of the driving forces behind this years hackday) explain it all below:

The story behind it

Six weeks ago a few of us started thinking about what people actually wanted from a hackday and tried to find a theme that would be genuinely interesting, inspiring and also accessible in our UK and US offices.

Too often, hackdays can be seen …Continue reading this article…

What’s in your toolkit?

August 2013, by Jodie | 5 Comments – latest by martin

So you’ve taken that step and opened your own business or maybe you’re just getting ready to. You’re your own boss now, the man in charge, the person who talks to the bank manager and deals with suppliers, you have to make sure that deadlines are met, the buck stops with you. But it’s also you who makes the decisions, you created this business from the ground up; it was your creativity and determination that made all this happen.

Your business is a living thing, it’s as much a part of you as something you created and you should manage it with the same honesty and integrity you …Continue reading this article…
