A holder for Square Moo business cards

There’s no doubt in my mind that Moo is one of the finest “online” print shops. They offer high-quality and unique designs, and the flexibility of mixing multiple designs in a single run. I highly recommend everything they offer.

In particular, their Square Format business cards on Luxe paper are like small works of art. Particularly when you add spot gloss or foil highlights to your design.

However, the card's unconventional shape means they won’t fit into any conventional business card holder. Moo sells a couple of different holders, but I’m not a fan of either. (Like Goldilocks, the cases are either too expensive, or too bulky.)

My solution is admittedly somewhat tacky, but practical. Buy a package of trading card sleeves, which cost a mere fraction of pennies each, and use those to put cards in the pocket of every jacket or bag you own. You’ll never be without your cards, and they will be pristinely clean when you proudly present them to a recipient.

And before you protest that each sleeve can only hold 3 or 4 cards, consider how often you hand out cards today (it’s a rapidly vanishing tradition), and that Moo’s own cases also hold a minimal number of cards. The sleeves are worth a try, right?
