It’s been all go at MOO HQ in the first few weeks of January. First we kicked off our brand new API, followed by a Beta release of the new MOO card gallery, and as of the start of this week, we’ve moved into a brand new shiny office!
So what’s next? Well, we wanted to address a request we’ve been getting from you for quite a while now, so we’re proud to announce the launch of the brand new and improved MOO Postcards!
You asked, we answered
That’s right! From today, you can upload a full PDF design to the back of your Postcards. Now your Postcards can be as unique as you are. Yay!
Don’t worry, you’ll still …Continue reading this article…
With London enveloped in a rather unseasonable blanket of snow (and our Rhode Island office laughing at our inability to cope) MOO Towers is beginning to resemble a Brutalist version of a winter wonderland. And with this white loveliness, we’ve found our minds wandering away from the normal worries of the week to the excitement to come – Parties, Mince Pies, Sherry and the tinkle of sleigh bells across the sky. Did we also mention Sherry?
But as excited as we are, we mustn’t forget to remind you to place your orders for the Holidays soon, so that we can be sure to get them to you in time. Below you’ll see our order cut-off dates for our various shipping options. …Continue reading this article…
At MOO, we don’t just love to print – we love to design too. And from the accessories that complement your cards, to the packaging that protects them, we like to add a little MOO magic to every single aspect of our business.
Which is why we thought a blog about the fun, hidden elements we’ve included in your MOO products was a good idea – after all, there’s no sense in creating multi-tasking packaging if nobody knows how to use it!
Make a stand
As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago when we launched our Photo Enhancement tool, this is a very exciting time at MOO. Over the next few months you’ll see plenty of additions, and some dramatic changes to the site and the way it works.
So today is the day to tell you about the next new feature to debut on the site – Save Your Project.
This has been perhaps the most requested product feature of the past few months. Lots of you spend many hours crafting and perfecting your MOO cards, and the ability to take a break and come back to finish it later would allow you to take the time you need to make sure everything is …Continue reading this article…
Those of you who follow us on Twitter will be aware that over the past few months we’ve been looking for a steady stream of people to come to MOO HQ to help us test new developments on the site. We’re sure it doesn’t take a genius to add two and two together and figure that we’ve got lots of changes planned, to roll out over the next few months.
There will be lots more information on that to follow but in the meantime, the first fruit of this major update is ready to be unveiled…
Our motto is “We love to print”. And we mean it. More importantly though, we love to print at the highest quality possible, making …Continue reading this article…
Recent years have seen the rise of ‘handmade’ on the internet. Stores like Etsy, Dwanda, Glimpse Online, Folksy and more, all sell work from talented crafters, while crafting communities like Ravelry are full of people quite literally doin’ it for themselves. The current economy means there’s less money to spend on gifts this year too, and now more than ever people feel the need to give gifts that really count.
It’s not easy being a crafter though – especially at this time of year. Long lists of gifts to make can be daunting, and the creation of a flawless item takes time that isn’t always available. Buying handmade is a great substitute of course, but there …Continue reading this article…
What do you get if you cross MiniCards with magnets? Moognets! We’re seeing more and more moognets out there, and one of our favourite moognet-makers is illustrator Luisa Vidal, aka Etsy seller Fashion Fuchsia.
Luisa sells her moognets as beautifully packaged themed sets. Bright yellow suns shine next to redheads in sunglasses. Blue boys and purple girls reach for each other’s hands from their respective MiniCards. Or the customer can go random and choose their own – fancy clashing a pink alien robot with a cat-boy in a brown dog costume?
If there’s one thing we like at MOO it’s good ideas. And it’s been a little while since our last post sharing ideas from our creative community – so we thought now would be a good time for a catchup. So, sit back and take in some of the cool ideas we’ve spotted recently.
“Finals!” “Portfolio reviews!” “End of Year Shows!” “Jobs!” “The World!”
If this is a snippet of what is going through your mind at the moment, we can sympathise. It wasn’t that long ago that we were busy, eager, just a little nervous, and heading for graduation ourselves.
For design, art and photography students, now is the time to pull a whole year’s work into one exhibition; impressing tutors, fellow students – and more importantly, VIPs that might have jobs (and a pay cheque) up their sleeves.
So how do you make the most out of your end of year show? What materials do you need to help make a good impression?
One of the first places you could …Continue reading this article…
We’ve had a very busy time of it here at MOO Towers recently. Some of the MOO Crew were at SXSWi, while others were working on the new MiniCard box – and additional packaging ideas to be revealed soon. The dev team are all hard at work preparing for the USA launch, and others have just hopped on a plane to Photoshop World, in Boston.
The Recruitment Crew are hard at work, reading CVs for our recent UK and USA job postings – and have asked me to mention that if you haven’t got response to something you’ve sent us, please don’t worry. They’re reading everything very carefully, and hoping to respond as soon as …Continue reading this article…
