Two designers, two very different Luxe packs. HOW Clever are brilliant ice-breakers featuring a unique design and a “How?” networking question (for the slightly shy among you!) PRINT’s Letter Love shares their love of letters with a series of energetic and colorful designs in red, white and black. Order the entire alphabet, spell a word or choose your monogram to customize your pack.> View previous designers
This month, we have two designers – HOW and PRINT. HOW began life in the eighties as a graphic design magazine, and evolved over the years to encompass online design courses, books and more to educate and inspire would-be designers. PRINT is a bi-monthly magazine founded in 1940, dedicated to showcasing the extraordinary both on and off the page. Though coming from different angles, both publications’ work explores the environment we live in, and why aesthetics matter.
Chigago-based EPIC (IAmEpic.org) empowers creative people to make social change a reality. They organize 8 week, collaborative creative rallies, where volunteers are hand picked from the advertising and design industries and paired with non-profit clients dedicated to education, children and families. It’s a genuinely exciting venture, which gives creative a chance to give back by utilizing their skills, while the non-profits get the creative boost they need to make a real local impact.
Compared to most ordinary Business Cards, Luxe are the gold standard of paper quality at 600gsm/32pt, everyone who receives one will experience a quality and weight like no other card.
Luxe was designed by our Product Designer Paul Thorogood to be the ultimate conversation starter. With that in mind, we invented a technology called Quadplex, (entirely unique to MOO) so that Luxe cards could look as spectacular as they feel.> Find out more about Luxe

Small talk isn't easy - especially for a first meeting. So let your cards leave a lasting impression for you. Hand over a friendly message – rendered in a cheery typeface – and you won’t have to say a word.
There’s a Business Card message for everyone you meet with these fun, cheeky – and sometimes rude – Business Cards. But you can’t edit these – so they’re not for the faint-hearted!
Vibrant ink dropped into water – and photographed. It’s such a simple idea and yet creates such incredibly effective and striking results. These cards are simply unforgettable– with your initials in the center.
Inspired by his best-selling poster "Haunted House", Brian Flynn takes us inside to explore the interior. The patterns on these ghostly cards are his interpretation of the haunted house's custom wallpapers. Spooky!
Inspired by Oliver Byrne's version of Euclid's Elements, these designs are a modern interpretation. She uses her expertise to turn the grandfather of mathematics’ working into beautiful diagrams.
Inspired by the sculpture of Harry Bertoia, and the colour palettes of Saul Bass, these cards are all joy and delight. Hand one to a prospective client, and hopefully you’ll make them smile as well as want to work with you.
Katie’s pack was inspired by a lifelong passion for travel (which in turn was inspired by a lifelong desire to escape her small town roots.) She stumbled upon a box of vintage cigarette papers in a flea market in Barcelona – and here they are!
Dan’s pack was inspired by a pet project he’s been working on – etching his personal collection of vintage film cameras. A lover of photography, film and product design, he jumped at the chance to explore the many sides of a camera.
The Golden Age of Hollywood finds its home on Luxe paper, thanks to award winning designer Michael Osborne. He uses classic poses from some of the silver screen’s most iconic faces to create a pack of stunning Business Cards.
So many MOO customers are designers, so it gives us great pleasure to invite you to submit your work to the Luxe Project. If your designs are used, you’ll be able to showcase your talent, and support the charity of your choice for an entire month. If you’re interested, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with a concept idea, contact details and links to some examples of your work. (Please don’t send designs at this stage!)
