This adorable photo of Pie with a MOO sticker on his nose was featured in the MOO Blog today! MOO, my new favorite printing company, is holding a City Stickers competition and I thought Pie might not mind participating!
A few weeks ago I stumbled upon MOO when looking for new calling cards. (The above link is to their US site, but if you are in the UK - To Catch A Pony - you'll want to click here.) Even though she is a fictional character, I blame Holly Golightly for my calling card addiction. I design and distribute new ones incessantly. Finding the right paper weight and brilliant color is quite a feat. (I am picky!) Too many nights I sit and google "business cards" only to discover sub-par offerings. I ordered a sample pack from MOO and was knocked out by the quality.
The very next morning after I found MOO, they offered free stickers to the first 1000 etsians who responded! I was in my usual horse vs. art freak-out-mode. I wanted my stickers to be perfect, but I also wanted to go and ride and I didn't have time to get all my photos together in photoshop. So, I went to the barn and missed out. Then, the next morning, they offered the same deal to the first 500 people. Oh! Twice in a row!
What an old school fool I was. If I had just started uploading my photos, I would have found out that MOO does everything for you! I didn't need to resize or color correct. It is tough to let go and trust when you are used to making sure everything is perfect in photoshop first.
AND...the very best part is that they print business cards, postcards, and their unique mini cards with different images on each card!!!! It is like carrying all my paintings and my entire blog in my pocket. Below are two of the 50 (!) different images ($21.99) I ordered as calling cards.
Of course, Pie didn't care one straw about MOO and how great they are as printers. He just wanted me to get that sticker off his face and let him get back to gobbling apples!
