It's the MOOsLETTER!
Hooray for Summer! We've got a free shipping promotion and a very exciting project to celebrate. Not to mention exclusive DIY marketing ideas. These are reasons to be cheerful, we think.

Buy MiniCards, get free shipping!

That's it, it's that simple. If you buy one pack of MiniCards or more, you'll get free shipping on your entire order by using this code: A2MEEH. Hurry though, as this offer is only valid until Sunday*.

MiniCards_creative Like MOO but never seen MiniCards? They're basicaly half-sized Business Cards. There's the option to print a different image on every one in a pack of 100 and they're great for save the dates, promotional materials, hangtags for your crafts or simply for sharing your url or contact details.

Photographer Robyn Pollman used them for her most recent piece of self promotion. She attached a branded MiniCards to handmade packs of candy buttons. See, they can be a real sweetener!

* This offer is valid on the cheapest shipping method only, until Sunday 4th July at Midnight PDT.
Please note, you can only use one promocode per order.

The Business Card Project

MiniCards_creative Do you know anybody in need of a business card makeover? Well, now is the perfect time to let them know about The Business Card Project.

We are giving away a good-looking $250,000 worth of our own professional design advice (a personalised consultation, complete redesign and the final cards to boot) to 500 small businesses - that's a chunky $500 each!

Supported by our friends at COLOURlovers, iStockphoto, and FontFont who have offered stunning free content, we can't wait to get started.

While we’re sure your cards are great (being a MOOster and all!), you probably know someone who could use a little help. They can just fill out an application form to be considered. Remember to check out our online gallery to view "before and after" shots of all the redesigns, and to vote for your favorite.

Creative DIY marketing

June was "DIY Marketing Month" in the USA. Always eager to share ideas, this was the only excuse we needed for gathering together some of your uniquely creative marketing concepts...

Peoplelovepresents With some lateral thinking, Business Cards can promote both your company and your products. peoplelovepresents.com went for an A-Z theme, each one introducing a different alphabet-inspired gift idea.


Looking to launch their website, cupofwifi.com featured exclusive beta codes on their Business Cards allowing exclusive access to their site; a great way of generating traffic and introducing people to their service.

Sweet_MiniCards Another melt-in-the-mouth marketing tool: confectionary connoisseur Ella Riley used sweet-centred MiniCards to advertise a clever promotion. Keep the card or collect 10 and swap them for free goodies. With cards that look good enough to eat, that's no easy choice!

And that's all for now,

See you soon,
The MOO Crew
