A double work life

August 2014, by Karen | 15 Comments – latest by Karen

With an ever-changing work climate, there’s a good chance you’ve worked freelance before, have heard of the 4-hour workweek (and want to try it, right?) or in fact, work a double life.

What’s a double work life? This is when you spend your day at a 9-5 job and your evenings or weekends working on your own business, a second job or passion project. Here at MOO, we’re fascinated by these ‘double lifers’ and even have quite a few of them working for us too.

So, we’ve started a series where we get to know some exciting, inspiring folks in our community and at MOO too, to find out what it takes to lead a double life, err work life, we mean…

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 moo.com – well …Continue reading this article…

Want your cards featured in the MOO Shop?

March 2013, by Jon | 26 Comments – latest by Victoria Colette

We love discovering new businesses that you guys have got kicked-off and love it when your creative use of MOO Products has been some small part of a success story. That really is the icing on the cake. (CAKE! Did someone say cake?)

So when we decided that we wanted to open a shop, pretty much the first thing (after deciding that there were going to be cookies) was to ensure that you, our customers, and your businesses took pride of place.

We’ve taken our Inspiration Gallery and made it into something you can touch, pick up and feel. Here you’ll find some of …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…

Given that it’s small business week, we recently decided to pose a simple question on the MOO Facebook page – what was the best piece of business advice you’d ever heard? The response was absolutely outstanding with over 300 of you sharing your thoughts and suggestions.

Having gone through them all, we’ve decided that we should offer up a prize to Sandrine Cousette Franchet, who shared the following piece of advice:

Of course, with so many entries, we couldn’t go without mentioning a few other fantastic pieces of advice that were entered, and a big thank you to everyone who took the …Continue reading this article…

Hello, Etsy

September 2011, by Melissa | 3 Comments – latest by Sumon Rahman

When our friends at Etsy asked if we’d help to get people networking at their first ever summit on small business and sustainability in Berlin, it was a no brainer. Of course we’d like to!

Hello Etsy was held on 17-18 September, and had an aim to be a “hands-on gathering for small business owners who want to connect with their peers, learn the skills to find success and independence, and be part of the movement to build human-scale economies.” What that translated into was two days of talks, ideas, and introductions in an amazing electrical plant turned techno club turned event space, E-Werk.

MOO got involved by providing specially branded Hello Etsy MOO Business Cards …Continue reading this article…

Why don’t you write me a Postcard?

September 2011, by Charlotte | 6 Comments – latest by Cathie

We love a good community project and if it involves print too, well, then we’re sold. Postcrossing caught our eye a while back so we gave Ana there a shout and asked her to explain how it works:

Once upon a time…

Postcrossing started with a bored IT engineer and his (mostly) empty mailbox. Paulo Magalhães spent the summer of 2005 working on his internship, all the while rejoicing on the rare occasion when he received a postcard from his friends – who were all on their holidays, somewhere much sunnier.

While his friends weren’t bad at keeping in touch, Paulo found his joy at receiving a Postcard from somewhere unexpected was exceeding their travel budgets. He decided to take …Continue reading this article…

Postcards from the edge

March 2011, by Charlotte | 6 Comments – latest by Architectural visualisations

Well, we knew it wouldn’t take you long to grab our new double-sided Postcards and put your personal stamp all over it – and we weren’t disappointed. Over the last few months, we’ve been watching Flickr with a hawk-eye for anything extraordinary, and as you can see, we were spoilt for choice.

Stylish photographer Kylie Clarke Photography has taken full advantage of being able to upload pdfs to both sides of the Postcard, by branding both sides of her promo Postcards with her arresting images, plus contact details.
