This is too funny! Yearbook Yourself is an interactive photo upload service that places your face in a myriad of hairstyles and poses ranging from the 1950s through 2000. It can be quirky at times and you have to precisely line up your face and features with their specified grids, but the results are hilarious. I assume this is an interactive “back to school” promotion that a number of shopping centers on the west coast are participating in to advertise their stores (although I’m not positive).
Still, it is a funny application that will have you laughing. Yearbook photos were bad enough while in high school. Unfortunately, Yearbook Yourself doesn’t make it any better. Guess we’re stuck with not being photogenic for the rest of our lives! Here are a few pictures of me that I thought were pretty funny. Loving the cheesy 80s chin pose!

For all of you who don’t know what Moo Cards are, this post is for you. Moo is company based out of the UK that prints mini cards, stickers, postcards, note cards and greeting cards. Their personalized products are beautifully crafted and very unique. The mini cards are my favorite product from Moo. You can upload your own photos from flickr or even those drunk ones off of your Facebook photo album to print on your moo cards. If you’re too lazy or find that your photography skills are lacking, there are many ready-made designs from artists and graphic designers that are eclectic and fun that you can choose from. Unless you like blurry photos — hey, that’s cool too!

You have unlimited options and styles to choose from. Perhaps the coolest thing about Moo, is that in one deck of moo cards, you can have 100 different designs if you choose. That’s right, you’re not limited to one design per stack you order. In the age of social networking I think it is imperative to have a professional business card and a personal “calling card” of sorts. It is a great way to link your e-mail, blogs and social media bookmarks onto a personalized card (that happens to be way too artsy for anyone to purposefully throw away).

There are so many cool uses for moo cards. I was able to find a great sample of the unique way moo cards have been used beyond the traditional “personal business card.” See links posted below. I hope this inspires you to get your own card circulating out there and have some fun designing yet another extension of yourself. Next time we meet up, we can all trade moo cards!
