There’s more to packaging than meets the eye. A its most basic level it simply has to protect its precious cargo, but with a bit of thought – and not much expense – your packaging can work much harder for both you, and your customers.
Without much work your packaging could:
• make a statement about you and the way you work
• have a second life – saved and re-used as storage
• promote your store and your work – which could mean more sales
and best of all
• create a sense of excitement and anticipation on arrival. (Which could also mean more sales!)
Who doesn’t want their customer to be overjoyed at receiving something they’ve made? You’ve put a lot of work into …Continue reading this article…
There’s something fantastically James Bond about these Business Cards. In a world where we’re all dressed head to toe in black, jetsetting around on covert missions, we’d leave nothing but a card like this behind for our frustrated enemies to find.
Taking the card carefully out of its case with gloved hands, we’d place it on the table and smile secretively to ourselves as we abseiled out of the window, landing deftly on a motor bike below. We’d head straight for the nearest impractical stairway we could find, and drive down it shouting triumphant phrases in multiple languages.
Our card of course, would contain no traditional names and numbers, just a beautiful, graphical representation of our unique DNA. You …Continue reading this article…
“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 have no idea how you figured it out, but yes, our ‘new product announcement’ yesterday was just for April Fool’s day. I must admit, we had far too much fun planning and making it – and that was doubled by reading all your comments.
Just incase you didn’t know, we do sell real Eco Friendly Business Cards, which we think are quite super. We just don’t WRITE THE NAME IN CAPITAL LETTERS and they actually do come ‘ready assembled’, with both the words and the pictures attached:
The stock is 100% recycled and 100% recyclable – and the free holder is 100% recycled pulp board and recyclable too. For anyone in the USA worried about the …Continue reading this article…
As you know, we like to listen to the things our customers are suggesting. On your suggestion we added the image upload to the front AND back of Business Cards. Next we upgraded the preview tool, and still your suggestions keep coming. You love our 100% recycled, eco-friendly Business Cards, but some of you want more. You want to be SUPER ECO FRIENDLY.
Well, we hear you.
We’re excited to announce the SUPER ECO FRIENDLY Business Card!
Part of MOO’s New ‘Business Basics’ range, they’re as green as it gets.
Those who subscribe to the MOO Newsletter*, will have seen that last week we were talking about different things you can do with your cards, over and above the ‘usual’.
Of course you can use them as regular business cards (that’s what they are, after all!) but we’ve spotted some people using both MOO MiniCards and Business Cards as a form of packaging for small, handmade items.
And since then, we’ve spotted a few more examples…
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…
We work with a wonderful collection of designers and illustrators here at MOO, so that no matter how skilled – or unskilled – you think you are, you’ll always be able to create a great pack of Business Cards or MiniCards to promote yourself, or your business.
Recently we’ve expanded our collection, to add new designs from creative duo, Benrik. Their quirky sense of humour had everyone at MOO Towers smiling, and so we thought we’d ask them a few questions to find out what makes them tick.
1. Hello, lets get straight down to business: who are you, what do you do and where do you do it?
We are Ben Carey and Henrik Delehag, otherwise known as …Continue reading this article…
But as luck would have it, a couple of the MOO Crew are going too – and they’ve offered to carry orders for SXSWi personally, so you can pick them up at the event.
Sound like a plan?
If you’d like to pick up your cards at SXSW Interactive, here’s what you need to do:
Place your order BEFORE March 6th using the following promocode: sxswi
This will not give you a discount but it will ensure your cards are taken to SXSWi.
At the event, you’ll be able …Continue reading this article…
As we’re always showing you beautiful packs of Business Cards made with artwork or photography, we thought for once we’d show you something different. It’s not always appropriate or possible to use images on your cards; maybe you’re a writer, marketer or software developer, or perhaps you’re promoting an application – so what do you do then?
And if it’s words you’re after, we’ve spotted some lovely Wordle cards out there – used for everything from Weddings, to Business cards. Wordle makes beautiful tag clouds from your own text, and allows you to …Continue reading this article…
