Moo.com Business Card Review | Not Thrilled.
I received my new business cards a few weeks ago from Moo.com and though the prints are lovely and the stock is what I would consider perfect for this project, I would NOT recommend them. The business cards they sent are glaringly off-center, and while I realize that putting a border on a printed piece can be risky business I also know it is possible for perfection (unless I’m losing my mind, but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it). My second complaint regarding this matter was that there was no information concerning borders available on the website. At the very least I would have appreciated a call from the printer saying it would not be possible to cut the cards accurately.
The Moo.com staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and did offer a free reprint. After thinking long and hard I decided against it. If the cards are off-center with a border, they’ll be off-center without one, and though it may be less noticeable it’s just not acceptable. I have to represent my business and the design I’m selling in the best way possible; having horribly off-center business cards will not reflect well on the quality of my work. The staff at Moo also offered a refund, however that would require sending the cards back and I like them enough to just cut them myself (which is precisely what I was attempting to avoid in the first place – my home printer could have achieved this alignment…grrrrr).
Below are two examples of the detail-side of the cards and the back of the cards.
It’s unfortunate that the company cannot resolve this. The packaging is great, marketing is great, website is great, the Buzzword Bingo and Buzzword Challenge cards are noteworthy additions, great stock, great print, an amazing option of up to 50 different images on one side of the cards, great customer service, reasonable prices…but all of these things do not help me achieve my initial goal of handing out business cards I am proud to share with a colleague or client.
