More about us, more about you
It’s Friday! It’s sunny! (At the moment). So why not get out in the sunshine this weekend and do something almost healthy? I wrote about the ParaMOOs a while ago, but they really swung into action recently at a FlickrMeet in North Yorkshire.
ParaMOOs? Little MiniCards on parachutes, launched off hills or tall buildings and making their own way in the world. Not sure what the point is? Me neither, but it’s cute and it’s made for some great photos.
This is one from a lovely set by ~Glen~ aka Wickerman
And this one, by Robin Kelly shows just how far the group walked to start the launch.
See, doesn’t that make you want to …Continue reading this article…
So what to do with your MOO?
Flickr user, and MOOster epmd has had a long running project of leaving and photographing MiniCards in DC. Stickers make a project like this even easier, as you know they wont blow away when you leg it round the corner.
Here’s a couple of Stickers seen out and about. Bonus points if you live nearby and send us links to your own versions of these photos!

And they’re looking really good! The packing crew have been really busy in the warehouse now Stickers are in the mix, and we’ve spotted some lovely photography and graphics whizzing by. (Did you make a book of really cute hamster photos? I packed them myself and I loved them, they’re fantastic.)
We thought you might like a very quick look at the books as they’re being made, and a quick peak at what other people have been making.
StickerBooks, with covers, all ready for the final assembly.

Sometimes, the hardest thing about making MiniCards, NoteCards or even Stickers, is what on earth you put on them. You get all geared up ready to make some lovely stuff, look at all your photos and think: ‘Ummm… Actually you know what? I’m not sure I really want to make MiniCards with a photo of last night’s dinner or my cats furballs on.’
To be honest, we had this problem too, so we thought we should do something about it. The solution? MOO Ready Made!
Packs of MiniCards, NoteCards or Stickers, designed by illustrators or photographers who actually know what they’re doing. There’s a nice choice, they look great and all you need to do …Continue reading this article…
Thank you to everyone who came to our party last night. We really enjoyed ourselves (probably a bit too much, I think, based on the state of the MOO crew this morning) and we hope you all had a good time too. It was great meeting so many of you in person and getting your comments and feedback. Thanks also to everyone who travelled from outside London! Yes, that’s you, Brighton Crew, and others from Oxford and Birmingham, to name but a few.
There are already pictures up on Flickr. If you have photos of your own, please tag them with:
(It’ll help the people who are still drunk find them a bit quicker.)
To those who couldn’t make it, you …Continue reading this article…
Yes! StickerBooks are here. ‘StickerBooks?’ I hear you ask? (Well, someone might.) Yep – StickerBooks – 90 different, full colour, high quality, glossy Stickers, printed on 15 different sheets, and bound into a pocket-sized book. All for a cool $9.99 / €7.49 / £4.99. And better still? There’s FREE GLOBAL SHIPPING in July!
And why have we bound the Stickers into a book? Well, we love stickers – all stickers, not just MOO ones. And we hate it when they get all messed up at the bottom of our bags. You pull a sticker out all happy to see it and oh. It’s all scratched up or peeled off or squashed, and tragedy has struck. So MOO StickerBooks …Continue reading this article…
Yep, the stickers launch is nearly upon us. In less than a week from now we’ll be launching our latest product and then, hopefully, meeting as many of you as can make it to our party.
I’m not sure any more what we’re most excited about – the stickers themselves (which we think are ace), the prospect of meeting you, or a stiff drink.
The office table is covered in stickers, which we’ve been testing and playing with for a few weeks now. They’ve been road tested in pockets, on phones, on notebooks, in bags, on laptops and on foreheads, obviously. (C’mon – you *know* you’re going to stick at least one to your forehead… Aren’t you? It’s not just me… …Continue reading this article…
Yep, that’s what I said, MOO on my Pom. It’s not all about cats and kittens in this world you know. Why? Because sometimes they just refuse to stay still, damn them. When you can’t put Stuff on your Cat you need a real faithful friend. A dog.
You can see more of Ceci, taken by h-angele right here. Ceci is of course following in the footsteps of other obliging four-legged friends, Kaysha and Maddie. (You should also check out the set, What’s on Maddies head, it’s great.)
Does your dog MOO too?
In other news we’re all gearing up for …Continue reading this article…
