Been waiting for a long time, and Moo finally has the design I wanted for the Luxe type cards. Ordered a small batch to get a taste for the quality and I am blown away! As soon as these are gone, will be putting in another order.

Anyone looking for a Moo referral and/or discount just PM me!

A bit late, but I saw your post about your logo. Why didn't use the butterfly on your card? One word...branding. ;)

Is the brown border around the card just for show (here), or is there really a border around your card? If it is a border, I hope they trim it carefully.

That is just an image I saved from the website that I ordered from. There is no border around it. Unfortunately I jumped the gun on ordering these before I decided on the butterfly today. The next ones will have the same image as my website. Thats what I get for being impatient! lol

You need to mind text hieght. I can barel read the white text on your front on my screen where the images appear at least twice as big as a real business card. So you are going to need a lot bigger text to be readable on a real card. Depending on the font, probably not smaller than 9 point, again minding the end print size. If your text is 10 point (white) your canvas size may not be sized correctly and it all gets downsized during printing.

I totally agree. These were my first ever business cards and I've already noted how many things I'm going to change once these are all gone.

Many of my Clients say Photographers are weird. One of the reasons is that many photographers fail to be transparent and accessible. To alleviate this, include your full contact information , what it is that you do and position yourself if possible from other similar vendors.

This card is very busy, too much text in my opinion. It's good, just like on a resume, to not try and fill up every inch of space with text.

I got my "test pack" in from Moo. The quality is nice, but did not BLOW me out of the water. Not sure if I was expecting too much. I like the matte on the typeface side, but the photos look really boring without much "pop". Not sure what I am going to do, if I am going to order these or the LUX series and hope they are more to my liking.

*I am not using these to get paid work, so I feel bad spending luxe prices for these cards.

I thought the same thing when I got my moo cards but apparently, were quite in the minority.

The only problem is that I know the Vistaprint cards are REALLY cheap, and I dont know anywhere else that is somewhere in between. Very thin stock and while they print fine, the material is just not quite up to par with these.

However, I can get 5x the amount of cards from Vistaprint. And since I will just be handing them out when out at car shows, I have a funny feeling that people will tend to throw them out/lose them. So I am actually thinking I might just get both. Moo cards for work that I am trying to get (still non paid), and then Vistaprint cards to hand out when people just want to know my web address.

The Vistaprint heaviest stock with a gloss finish is actually very nice and insanely inexpensive.

We get compliments all the time on how heavy our cards feel and people ask about where we ordered them. I think most just automatically order the ones Vistaprint tries to sell you, but if you go up to the heaviest stock with a gloss finish, I'd say you'll be very happy

Thanks for the info. I am going to order a set of these tonight and see how they compare to my Moo cards. The nice thing about Moo is that you can put multiple different images on the back. From the looks of it, Vistaprint you can only do one photo. Which isnt a big deal, I will just order two or three sets of 200 for extremely cheap, and still some out way ahead of Moo (If I am happy with the quality).
