So the story goes that one day, Moo asked themselves, “What would the most beautiful business card in the world look like?” A few months, and some truly innovative new technology later, they created the answer – Luxe Business Cards.
And I would say that they are right. These really are the most beautiful business cards.
My cards arrived in a very understated, white box. A simple tear-drop logo on the outside.
And then the lid lifts open and there they were… My bright (almost glowing!) cards. I had uploaded 25 of my original illustrations to the Moo site using their Printfinity program. It was so easy I thought I was doing it wrong. But nope, it’s just that easy. I had my name and website printed on the back. I went with subtle design because that’s just me. Plus, the cards kind of speak for themselves. They are more like artists trading cards than business cards, they are so pretty.
And they are thick. SUPER thick. Three times as thick as normal business cards, giving them a strong, sturdy feel. Almost letterpress-like. I tried to capture that in the photo below… You can see that in the middle of each side of the card is a rich seam of color. (The seam on my cards is navy to match the information side.)
I was also blown away by the print quality. The image sharpness is gorgeous and none of the details are lost. And the colors are spot-on… something I didn’t mess with at all. Moo just got it right.
I think the only downside to these cards is that they are too pretty to give away. Like mini art pieces. I’d never drop one in a “win a free lunch” fish bowl. Although, at the great price of $34.99 for 50, I think I’ll just order another set.
