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.
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.
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…
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…
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…
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.
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!
