Straight to business, I am flipping impressed with my brand new Luxe Business cards from Moo.com. I’m not going to say anything silly like “I really didn’t know what to expect” simply because ... I did. I’ve ordered from Moo before and their quality is undoubtedly high. Plus I was paying for the highest level of business card on offer, so if they came back anything other than dazzling I was going to be annoyed. I guess you could say when it comes to printing I have high standards and always expect that to be met, otherwise what’s the point in being a printer ... I’m sure we’ve all had our fair share of printing horror stories.
I recently embarked upon a large scale upgrade of all my promotional material, including this flashy new website. Another part of that upgrade, of course was the new business cards that you see before you, I wanted something professional but also something a bit different, with a bit of an edge, let’s say, something top shelf, not just boring old white bread. My last business cards had a similar quality with the addition of UV spot varnish ... that’s a shiny coating added to part of the image incase you didn’t know, but along with the illustration I’d used that all seemed a bit old hat now. This is where my new cards definitely succeed, the thickness, the coloured line around the side, the stonking print quality on the beautiful Mohawk Superfine paper. The best part however, though difficult to show in a photo, is how it feels in your hand. I guess it’s to do with the innovative way the paper is made, whatever it is, I like it. I should imagine it’s the same reason that the image quality is so good. I would feel very confident in saying Moo have managed to surpass my expectation. If you are looking for something exceptional in a business card this is definitely for you, don’t quibble over the money either, the quality you get for a relatively low price is incredibly good, a very good investment for sure.
Now for the not so good bits ... They seem to be a bit to easy to damage around the edge. I think it’s to do with the way the paper is stacked together as individual sheets rather than one thick lump of card. A way around this would be for me to get an actual business card holder, rather than sticking them straight into my wallet. The only other down side to these little works of art is that I have to give them away for free.
