Colours in the sky

Tonight was the annual fireworks display at IBM Hursley. The first time I’ve been in over 6 years of working for the company.

Curls Light and smoke

Much more Moo

Given my track record as a fan of Moo products, it probably isn’t surprising that I ordered some Moo postcards as soon as they were launched. I have to say that the quality is excellent – heavy cards, glossy on the picture side, that I certainly won’t be ashamed to put in the post. I’ll have to post some pictures at some stage but there are plenty from other people over on Flickr. If there’s cause for me to snail mail you, then you might even receive one 🙂

This morning I noticed that the Moo greeting card store has opened… so we can now order cards from them too. It looks like these are going to be nicer than the ones I got from Photobox last year, as they are borderless (the Photobox cards last year had white borders on the picture face of the card). They are also running a Holiday Card Competition using photos submitted to a Flickr pool, (here are my entries…) and you can buy cards with those designs too.

Finally, I noticed that they are now selling Minicard holders made from felt or leather. I actually have my own metal cases for mine, but these look pretty neat.

Why Moo? An amazingly easy-to-use website, excellent quality products with good service, parties, and friendly people.

I’m reasonably sure that I posted a comment somewhere way back when they launched that said something about hoping they made squillions of pounds. I don’t know whether they are there yet, but they do keep coming out with really good-looking new products. They deserve it.

Update: there’s an announcement on the Moo blog now, but I beat them to it. Yay 🙂
