The more things change, the more they stay the same…

The more things change, the more they stay the same…

Tinkering. We love it! Here at MOO HQ, we’re always looking at ways to improve everything that surrounds us. Whether it’s some sneaky adjustments to our (always needy) coffee machine to make a nicer brew, to experimenting with tablets in our meeting rooms to make our days more efficient, we’re always on the look out for little ways to make our lives better.

Thankfully, we also apply that same tinkering ethic to our jobs, too. As such, we’ve been spending some time “under the bonnet” of our MiniCards and Postcards. and we’re please to say this week we’ve rolled out our tinkering to – well …Continue reading this article…

What’s the French for “Don’t adjust your screen, this blog post isn’t in English”? Oh….never mind.

Soit vous les cachez, soit vous en parlez sur tous les toits, ou plutôt sur Facebook, Twitter, blogs, Instagram…Enfin, vous voyez ce que je veux dire.

Mais de quoi s’agit-il ? Des hobbies, bien sûr ! Parfois plus que des hobbies, de véritables passions.

Notre communauté rassemble des individus à l’imagination débordante, tout comme vous. Les différentes manières dont vous utilisez vos Cartes de Visite, MiniCards et Autocollants nous le rappellent tous les jours.

It’s a most wonderful time of the year to get even more crafty!

December 2012, by Jovanna | Add a comment

A couple of weeks ago, we shared a crafty piece of inspiration for your left-over Christmas Cards and showed you how to create your very own crafty star. So we thought we’d continue the theme of home-made decorations made from printed products, and this time I was inspired by  Chinese paper lanterns, and I realised they sort of look like baubles, too!

This craft is really straightforward to make; you don’t even need any glue, so it’s less messy! You’ll just need 2 greeting cards, a hole-puncher, a pencil, a ruler, 2 paper fasteners, 1 piece of string.

Here’s how to …Continue reading this article…

Too pretty to open – creative packaging with MOO

October 2012, by Andrea | 9 Comments – latest by Photo Booth

Obviously you want people to open the present they’ve received or parcel they’ve ordered – but if you’ve done a great job with the packaging, they’ll probably think twice about ripping the paper off without taking the time to admire the effort!

Once again, we turn to our creative community for inspiration – because while we make the cards, we never stop learning ways to use them from you. And these three examples are a really good start to unleashing your pretty packaging potential.

Photographer Robyn’s an old friend of MOO – and she’s a lady who understands the positive power of packaging. She creates festive MiniCardContinue reading this article…

Scary good ideas from our Halloween competition winners

October 2012, by Jon | 6 Comments – latest by tankrides

Despite not having the scariest of product ranges (what could be scary about Business Cards?) we do quite enjoy Halloween here at MOO HQ. Mainly because it gives us an excuse to dress up in silly costumes and eat lots of tasty treats.

And with fright night only a couple of weeks away, we’d thought we would ask for inspiration from our wonderful customers. We asked you to show us your uses of MOO products in your Halloween celebrations. And we were absolutely delighted with what you showed us. Here are our favourites.

These tasty (trust us, we sampled them!) and stylishly wrapped Pate de Fruits by our friends at Zukr Boutique who use …Continue reading this article…

Celebrity Cards – our Lego photography winner

October 2012, by Jon | 14 Comments – latest by Ali

For our most recent design competition, we combined the launch of our Gloss Business Cards and MiniCards, a love of Lego (which we had a hunch many of you would share!) and a love of classic photography and art. Phew! With such a broad range of inspiration, we received a wide range of submissions, from film and music posters to classic and modern paintings.

We’re very pleased to announce that Chris Marwood has been chosen as our winner! Chris’ ‘subterranean’ design appealed to the music fans at MOO HQ and the fact that the whole image is composed purely from Lego. Fantastic. Chris wins the lovely prize of $300 cash and $100 …Continue reading this article…

MOO and improved

September 2012, by Brad | 13 Comments – latest by Jon B

At MOO we think it should be easy to make the card you want. For many customers, a big part of their Business Card is their artwork and photography: showing off your product or yourself is a great way to make an impact. So we took a long look at the way your add photographs to your MOO cards, and decided that there were three things we wanted to try and make easier:

1. Trying out lots of photos to find the one you want on your business cards.

2. Using your pictures from multiple places: whether they’re on your own computer, one of our image partners (Flickr, Picasa, Smugmug, or Etsy), or a freshly created QR Code.

3. And being able to …Continue reading this article…

Getting seen at Edinburgh Fringe

July 2012, by Dan H | Add a comment

We really do love Edinburgh Fringe here at MOO, especially with Andrea and Bec from our UK office heading up and performing over the coming weeks, and we we’re looking at ways to let all the performers know that they could pick up a packet of MiniCards to help promote themselves and their shows.

Once the concept for the first ad had been agreed, Felix disappeared to bring the idea to life. After a day of paper cutting, setups and lighting arrangements, he reappeared and Rob was able to get the perfect picture for us to use:…Continue reading this article…

MOO for Artists

July 2012, by Dan H | 13 Comments – latest by Steven Keating

Every week we see lots of different, creative and exciting businesses choosing MOO for a whole range of reasons. Recently inspired by TEKSTArtist’s miniature Business Card art prints, we’ve decided to hunt down some more artistic MOO customers and see what they’ve created.

Margaux Wosk uses both Postcards and MiniCards to showcase her Retrophiliac artwork:

Jun Arita is a Japanese pop artist who’s work mixes elements of Pop Art, Traditional Japanese Art, Kanji (Chinese characters used in Japanese writing) and graffiti. His brightly coloured MiniCards caught our eye …Continue reading this article…
