Notecards: A fond farewell

We like to think MOO has always designed and delivered unique products . As such, NoteCards have been a much-loved part of our range for almost three years now - but after some consideration, we've decided it's time to say good bye.

We'll be discontinuing NoteCards in February 2010 - until that point they'll be on sale, at just £8.99 per pack! This is not only advance warning, but a chance to take a quick look back over their history and see how you've been using this unique product.

Launched at 3pm on Wednesday 18th April 2007, NoteCards allowed you to upload your photos and print multiple images in each pack.

Their square shape gave a new way of cropping photos or displaying your designs with MOO - our previous product was the rectangular (and equally unique), MiniCard. Not only that, Notecards had a magic flap on the side! A little stand, which when folded helped the card to stand - almost like a cross between a Greeting Card and a Postcard. They're more informal than a Greeting Card, but more private than a Postcard. We always liked to think they were good for anything from a quick 'hello!' to a birth announcement or dinner invitation.

Over the years NoteCards were used for various different things

Wedding Notecards

Wedding Photographers displaying their 16 most beautiful shots.

Valentine's cards

NoteCards for special occasions (such as
Valentine's Day).

Birth announcement Notecards

New mums sending out original birth announcements cards.

Despite our initial worries about what to call them, you seemed to take them to your hearts. 'Stand-up Cards!' 'Flappy err... Flappy Postcards!', 'Postcards with a flap?', 'Backless Greeting Cards!' - you know how brainstorms go. In between all the laughing and ridiculous suggestions, someone finally suggested we just call them 'NoteCards' - because that's what they are. Cards to write notes in.

Over on Flickr, we saw NoteCards featuring gorgeous photography, like these cards by *Cinnamon:

...And super cute product shots, like these, from siansburys

If you're one of the many who've made NoteCards with MOO, we hope you've had as much fun making them, as we had developing them.

And now, the hard questions answered

Will I still be able to buy NoteCards?
In the short term, yes. You'll be able to place new NoteCard orders up until 7th February (midnight GMT).

Can I re-order my previous NoteCard orders?
Yes, but only until 7th February. After this point, re-orders or completely new orders will not be available.

How will this effect my current NoteCard order?
It won't! If you place an order before 7th February you will receive your MOO NoteCards just as you usually would.

Sometimes these things just have to be done. It's hard for us all, but we hope you understand.

Are you guys okay with the other products? I only place an order like, once every two years, because that's all I *need* (not being a business owner or a graphic artist or a hooker), but I like to know that the minicards are there, waiting happily for me to revisit them.

Yup, all our other products are staying the same! It would be pretty hard to remove MiniCards without getting lynched, I think :)
