CSS 2 and 3 offer a number of different ways to pick colours. While everyone knows the hexadecimal notation, fewer people know the RGB notation and colour keywords, and the new col…
Moo.com is an awesome company. Their minicards are a great way to share contact information in a less formal, less boring way, and we’ve used them to great success as business cards for Fluxility. Seriously, everyone loves them. So when Moo also announced stickers and free shipping, it took me all of 5 minutes to persuade my colleague Wouter that we absolutely needed them.
The great discussion
What was going to be on the stickers was easily decided on: 45 of our logo on a green and 45 of our logo on a blue background with a stickerbook for us both. But then: there are 6 colours to choose from. Six! This led to discussion as to who would pick which colour, and why. I was especially partial to purple, and my colleague to orange but neither colour was especially Fluxy. (Well the purple was, once, but we’ve been reducing our purple-ness for some time now. ) When Wouter decided he wanted the green one, I opted for the blue one.
I ordered the same set for both colour stickerbooks, and waited till they came in the mail. A very confused girl delivered them to my house, Royal mail doesn’t use the official Dutch postage company for post I guess. Mine came 2 days earlier than my colleague (ha!) and I’ve had them for about three weeks now. The stickerbook is absolutely awesome, Moo always puts a lot of effort into the packaging. The stickers themselves are really thick and durable, with a nice coating. Our logo looks awesome on them:
There is one problem though:
I haven’t dared to put a sticker anywhere yet. I’m always a bit scared of placing stickers anywhere, afraid to “lose” the sticker and afraid that I’ll get bored with some thing with a sticker on it, making the placement of a sticker a waste. Though I have 90, and the vinyl will come off easily, I still haven’t dared to place them anywhere. I’m going to stick one on my new duct tape wallet though, promise. (the old one is falling apart, so I need a new one.)
Anyone have another nice place to stick them on? (Electronics and furniture are out of question.)
Background-repeat is an often used method of making smaller images possible while creating a filling background. But in my eyes it is far too limited. You could do much more with i…
The modern browsers all have rgba(), giving you a semi-transparent background colour while keeping the foreground elements (text, images) fully opaque. But if you want to use that …
