Every business needs a business card if you hope to exchange contact information at networking events or conferences. Few weeks ago, the folks over at Moo reached out to us with regards to a product review. We are normally very skeptical about these business card companies because most of them are low quality. However, in the past we had heard good things about Moo, so we decided to take them up on their offer under the condition that if their product sucked, we won’t write a review at all. They agreed and gave us some credits to use their business card printing service. When the product arrived, we were totally stunned by the quality. It was so good that we already ordered a second batch hence the title, WPBeginner got Moo’d. This post is a courtesy review of Moo Luxe Business cards.
After ordering, it took a few days for our cards to get here. From the very first impression, we started to appreciate Moo’s attention to details. The cards came in an elegant little box with magnetic closures which was wrapped in a purple ribbon fastened by what looked like a stamped wax seal. Literally, our first impression was WOW.
Crazy huh? Most business card companies just send you a crappy paper box that you can’t even carry with you for more than one event. This unboxing experience really won our heart. The cool thing about this box was that it was SOLID and had magnetic closures. You can carry it with you for events without ever risking your cards being bent. We have already carried it with us to two events, WordCamp Raleigh and WordCamp Orlando.
So, you think the box was awesome? Wait till you see the business card. We ordered their Luxe Business Cards that sounded really good on their website. The luxe card is printed on a very high quality paper, so when a person holds it, they can feel the quality and the weight. It is about 3 times thicker than an average business card. When we handed this card out at events, we got compliments from just about every person. People were like “Wow, this puts my card to shame. Where did you get it?” Now when you get this type of reactions, you know that you have made the right choice. Check it out in the picture below.
Did you notice the thickness of the card? It looks like that it is two cards glued together, but it is not. It is really one card. We chose to keep our middle color be black, but you can have it black, blue, pink, or white. Since we had a few extra credits, we ordered a business card holder. Most business card holders will probably ruin the quality of these cards. We got the holder that they call “The ShowCase”. It should really be called “The ShowOFF” because it is that good. It will get you tons of compliments because you have the coolest business card holder compared to everyone at the conference.
So at the first look, it is a sleek business card holder that flips open. At least that is what most people will think. But there are times when you are talking in a group, and everyone wants to exchange business cards. That’s the perfect moment for you to use the sliding ability which they call it “fan out”.
A word of advice, practice the flip and sliding feature with one hand. It looks so much cooler. Honestly, this was the best business cards we have ever had. With their attention to detail, awesome presentation skills, and super high quality product, Moo has convinced us to be a lifetime user.
If you were looking to order business cards for your company, then we highly recommend checking out Moo Cards.
Wrong. The cards are actually glued together, its not one thick card.
.. and ours just started coming apart after 8 months.

Well I was wowed by your review so I thought that I would check out their site.
Great lay out, but when I tried to “build” my own card using one of the “basic” designs, it would not load. I waited about two minutes for it to let me put in my info for a card, then I got frustrated and closed the window.
I will give them a chance at a later time, but was bummed for my first visit!
Thanks for suggesting I check them out anyway!

Dang that’s sad to hear Michael. Hopefully it was just a minor technical difficulty.
Michael T. says
Yes, I was pretty bummed too, but I was more just curious anyway. I will be visiting again, because the cards look and sound incredible versus the Vistaprint variety! : )

I’m definitely going to check them out. My father helped print my first batch of business cards as a gesture of support for my vision! I’ve cherished those cards and now that the vision is becoming solid in practice, I need to up the detail of the business card to promote the seriousness of the venture. Thanks for the heads up on this product!

I am totally agreed with your review. Few months ago, I also get the same cards from Moo, and the quality was damn awesome. The first impression won my heart, and I just fallen in love with the cards.
Nice review! I had some of these luxe cards done up for WPCS. They came out super slick
However, in the past we had heard good things about Moo, so we decided to take them up on their offer under the condition that if their product sucked, we won’t write a review at all.
No no no, if they suck, you write a negative review. Writing nothing at all does us a disservice!
Fortunately, these cards look dope as hell, so we’re in the clear!
Editorial Staff says
Negative publicity is still publicity. We try to avoid it whenever we can. This is why we don’t accept product review offers from most companies. On the other note, yup these cards are freaking awesome.
