What we’ve lost with Moo.com business cards

Back in the early-1990s I dj’ed a little bit at Liverpool venue the Baa Bar and whilst sorting through my Rolodex frames found the card of the then manager (now chief executive of Baa Bar plc). It reminded me of the beauty that well designed and printed cards can bring.
Love this old business card design
The card has a fade towards the middle and the grey is actually a matt silver metallic ink. You don’t get that on a Moo card. Don’t get me wrong I love the way Moo cards democratise the calling card in a world going increasingly digital, but it takes away from the craft of the graphic designer and the printer.
