The little prints: MOO giveaway

February 22nd 2012

Business cards

The lovely folks at got in touch recently, asking if I’d like to share some of their printed products on here. Well, I’m already a happy Moo customer – I use their cute little Minicards to pop in with my Etsy orders – so I used the opportunity to get some of their newly-offered Luxe cards for my freelance design work, using a little monogram I made (which might feature in yet another blog redesign soon…)

They’re a sexy thick 600gsm with a textured matte finish, sandwiched with a layer of coloured stock which gives the edges a lovely pop. The great thing about Moo is you can mix and match your designs at no extra cost, so I could try out a few colour options for my cards. I’m so pleased with them, they feel great and I’m looking forward to giving them out!


Giveaway – win one of three 40-packs of postcards! have kindly offered up some postcard packs for me to give away too. Three people will win a set of 40 printed postcards – you can either supply your own designs or receive a mix of some of my shop designs as seen above and below. They look damn cute, eh?


The competition is closed

Congrats to the winners Alice, Danielle and Kerri-Ann.

    Your designs are gorgeous, but I think I’d print a set of some new motivational illustrations I’ve been working on to help populate my online shops with some lovely new stock :)

    I’d use them to print some of the crosstitch & embroidery pattern/postcards I’m working on. :)

    I’d print out your food poster – I’ve had my eye on that for a while now!

    The cards you had printed look amazing. I love the colour schemes!

    I’ve been lusting over all of MOO’s goodies for a while now. My sister and I printed business cards for our business (not with MOO, whomp) and we are waiting for the day when they run out so we can use these guys instead!

    So I’d probably print something for our business!

    xo, Meghan

    I’d love some of your designs showing a bikini fling adventure (a vintage British theme with a cheeky twist) on postcards, yes please!

  • Katie

    February 22nd 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Wow, they look great!
    I’m a photographer, and my degree show is coming up this year, so I’d probably print my photographs onto them to hand out at the show.

  • Kerri-Ann

    February 22nd 2012 at 4:28 pm

    What a great giveaway! I am attempting to start my own business so the cards with my own illustrations on would be such a great help!

    Hi there, love the competition, love the website, would love some postcards with your designs! :)

    Moo’s mini-cards are indeed brilliant, though I’d love your postcard designs to keep in touch with friends the old-fashioned way – who wouldn’t want to find Wonder Cat in their morning post?!

  • Laura G.

    February 22nd 2012 at 4:51 pm

    I Love the food poster (I’m vegan) and would definitely want that. As tempted as I am to dream of my own designs on postcards (blogging zombies perhaps?), I think if I won, the majority would be your designs.

  • Kate@OhKnit!

    February 22nd 2012 at 4:54 pm

    I would choose your prints as they are just so lovely.

  • Becky

    February 22nd 2012 at 4:58 pm

    I love Moo cards! And your beautiful designs. But I’d actually use these to print some postcards of some photos I have, which I’d then use as creative writing stimulus in my English lessons. I’m training to be a teacher and have been wanting to print some postcards for ages!

  • Jan

    February 22nd 2012 at 5:04 pm

    I couldn’t better your prints, they’re lovely! So I choose you. Thanks to twitter too for leading me to your site!

    hi there katie, greetings from toronto! im a long time listener, first time caller…and would def love to have your prints as postcards for framing and mailing. cheers!

  • Stephanie

    February 22nd 2012 at 5:14 pm

    As tempted as I am by a set of postcards of prints from your shop (I have your ‘food’ poster hung up in my kitchen!) I would have to get some of my own designs printed if I were so lucky to win. I’m a jewellery designer ( and i’ve got a couple of big craft fairs coming up, so a set of postcards with my own images on would come in very handy!

  • Alice

    February 22nd 2012 at 5:34 pm

    I would go for your designs! They make me smile and I’m in a total design rut right now anyway. I know this is totally cheesy but I’ve been following your work for years (I believe I found you on Craftster, haha) and it would be amazing to have a little pack of your postcards :)

  • Giselle

    February 22nd 2012 at 5:53 pm

    Ideally I’d like a mixture of your designs and some more personal ones. Think I’d make a list of 40 far away friends/loved ones (there are too many people I like living far away) then use photos/drawings specific to those people. There’s nothing more exciting than seeing a postcard has been delivered when leaving your house!

  • Laala

    February 22nd 2012 at 5:56 pm

    I’d absolutely love to get these! I’d go for your designs, which I adore. I frequently use postcards as bookmarks and, of course, mail them to people and I’d love to have the chance to do that.

  • Rowan

    February 22nd 2012 at 6:30 pm

    I think I’d get some press coverage I have had printed on them – that would be cool!

  • Amy

    February 22nd 2012 at 6:36 pm

    I’d love to have a set of “Save the Postal Service” postcards printed to mail out :)

  • Daniel

    February 22nd 2012 at 7:00 pm

    I’d probably get a bunch of postcards made up of the best of Hammer & Code, and then smother a wall in their black and white goodliness.

  • Lucy

    February 22nd 2012 at 7:25 pm

    oooo I was eyeing these up the other day. I can’t wait to order some. The packaging is lovely. Loving your new monogram too! I would probably get some postcards printed up with for my freelance business. Lovely stuff!

  • Nikki

    February 22nd 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Oh, I think I’d go for your designs- I love the tea one especially, and would love to send a care package to a friend based around it!

  • Han

    February 22nd 2012 at 7:36 pm

    These are awesome, something i’d definitely be keen to use. I would LOVE to win some! Your designs are gorgeous and i’d happily stick them all over my house, but I may use the opportunity to design my own set. Either a set of my travel photography captured over rural India, or more likely a set of fantasy illustrations I would create especially.
    Thanks! x

  • Lonnie

    February 22nd 2012 at 7:58 pm

    I’ve got a non-profit I’m working with that could use a little business card help.

  • Emma W

    February 22nd 2012 at 8:18 pm

    I’d love some of your designs, perfect for framing and snail-mailing :)

  • Lui Lui

    February 22nd 2012 at 8:31 pm

    Oh I’m so in love with these little beauties! The Printing Office one is probably my favourite, or the wonder cat, or the tea-mergency! Or all of them. And maybe I could even get some of my own ones.These would be so great gifts to send a friend as a care package with homemade cookies, homemade cake and nearly homemade cards.
    Thanks a lot to get the opportunity to win these!

  • Lexy

    February 22nd 2012 at 8:48 pm

    I absolutely love MOO Products! I would put some of my vintage graphic images on them! So cute! Fingers crossed!

  • Meghan

    February 22nd 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Gorgeous! I love yours too, but I think I’d use a design to promote my knitting patterns!

  • Anushka

    February 22nd 2012 at 9:01 pm

    I would use the postcards for my band, since we seem to be in limbo at the moment and could do with impetus to get promoting. Thanks!

  • Summer

    February 22nd 2012 at 9:30 pm

    Hi I would love to win the postcards because I’m moving out soon and it would be a nice way to keep my parents posted on how I’m settling in my new house, your designs are lovely!

  • pippa

    February 22nd 2012 at 9:43 pm

    i’d love the postcards with a selection of your designs, they’re lovely & would be great for brightening up my boring uni room! x

  • Annabel

    February 22nd 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Tough choice! I’d have to say get some of my work printed on them for my current project at uni as I’m too poor to buy more ink at the moment :)
    I’d also probably use a few for actually sending! My mum loves hanging my work up, isn’t that sappy? :P

  • Lucy

    February 22nd 2012 at 10:07 pm

    I’d get my boyfriend’s wonderful drawings printed on them so that more people could see his work.

  • Tammy

    February 22nd 2012 at 10:19 pm

    I’d love to frame your postcards and hang them about (:

  • katie antoniou

    February 22nd 2012 at 10:23 pm

    I’d probably get some postcard printed with artwork by by artist friends Tinsel Edwards and Twinkle Troughton who designed my website for me!I already get my business cards done by Moo too, they’re brilliant.

  • Elizabeth

    February 22nd 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Love the Moo products, they are such great quality.

    I would like to get some postcards made using some of my own photographs.

    *fingers firmly crossed*

  • Helen Nickols

    February 22nd 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Your designs are gorgeous. I work for a human rights organisation and we have a big music event coming up in 2012. I’d use them to create some limited edition flyers for that :-)

  • Kat

    February 22nd 2012 at 10:39 pm

    I’d go for the prints of your work, I’ve been a fan of your stuff for 6+ years since you were a student, I love the progression of your work.

    Plus they’d perk up my shabby old houseshare bedroom, it needs cheering up and these would do just the trick!


  • Corvus

    February 23rd 2012 at 2:14 am

    Can I do some of my prints and some of yours? Because I’d use these to decorate!

  • Priya

    February 23rd 2012 at 7:06 am

    I’d print pics of my artwork to hand out!

  • Julia

    February 23rd 2012 at 7:19 am

  • Faratiana

    February 23rd 2012 at 8:12 am

    Hey Katie !
    Thanks for the giveaway ! Your cards and postcards look great ! Difficult choice between your designs and mine… I think I’ll go with mine : prints and patterns I’m working on at the moment with positive quotes.

  • vix

    February 23rd 2012 at 9:44 am

    i’d have your designs! love them.

  • Jessica

    February 23rd 2012 at 10:24 am

    As an avid collector of postcards and admirer of your prints, I think I’d have to go for your designs. Moving into a new house soon and I have some empty postcard-sized frames crying out to be filled…

  • Liz

    February 23rd 2012 at 10:42 am

    I would love your design I could frame them and use the rest to cheer my friends up when they are feeling blue …

  • Emily

    February 23rd 2012 at 2:25 pm

    I think I’d get a mixture of your designs and a few of my own, or is that a bit contrary?! I love your designs but think I’d also get a few photos of holidays and happy days. Then I can pop them in my diary and take a peek at them if I’m in need of a bit of a pick-me-up.

  • Dan Bullock

    February 23rd 2012 at 2:31 pm

    I’d love that cat one to share at home and with friends and family. I’ve also wanted to get this print of mine on a postcard for ages, if I could be cheeky enough to mix it up a little?! ;-)



  • Katie

    February 23rd 2012 at 2:38 pm

    I’m a third year graphic design student so I’d print some of my work on to the postcards for a bit of self promotion! Thanks for the chancce to win :)

  • liz

    February 23rd 2012 at 3:49 pm

  • liz

    February 23rd 2012 at 3:54 pm

    OR i would make up a set of 60 Postcards to send to 60 of my mom’s dearest friends to write happy notes and send back to her for her 60th birthday!

  • Frances

    February 23rd 2012 at 7:35 pm

  • Anna

    February 24th 2012 at 9:55 am

  • Aimée

    February 24th 2012 at 3:39 pm

    I am a big fan of moo mini cards too – so much more interesting than standard size cards and I love that you can mix up the designs.

    If I won I would love to use them to print a design I am working on for the thank you cards after our wedding in May :)

  • Karen Scammell

  • Frankie

    February 27th 2012 at 12:25 pm

    I’d print pictures of my quilts to get me some advertising for my very (very) fledgling business

    I would print some of my favourite travel photos and yarn abstracts. The Luxe cards are amazing!

  • Kyla

    February 27th 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Oh, I love Moo! I get all my cards printed with them :) I would probably have to go with some of my own designs for this giveaway. PS – your luxe cards look fantastic!

  • Sarah

    February 27th 2012 at 6:16 pm

    I’d love some postcards with your designs on, and I know I’ve a few friends who would love to receive one through the post too!

  • Polly

    February 27th 2012 at 8:51 pm

    I think I’d do some designs of my own, perhaps some thank you cards.

  • Rachel

    February 28th 2012 at 12:44 am

    Totally a tough choice since the designs are so fab, but as my degree show is coming up and I’m gonna have to start networking my way into a grown up job I’d have to get some of my own designs printed up! The quality of those looks amazing!!

  • Sarah

    February 28th 2012 at 11:21 am

    Hi Katie, massive fan of your blog and LOVE following what katie does…equally adore the postcards, what a treat! I would have to design a photographic series from a recent jolly to San Fran, it would make a great memory from such an inspirational trip….

  • Celeste

    February 28th 2012 at 4:00 pm

    These are so gorgeous! I’d really love some business cards for my photography, but in this case I might get your CS Lewis quote printed. It’s so perfect :)

  • Ciera

    February 28th 2012 at 4:21 pm

    I looove MOO! This is a great giveaway! I’d use the postcards to print some invites for a party I’m throwing!

  • Helen

    February 29th 2012 at 4:25 pm
