Re: This card sure is ugly.

Delta Skymiles and CapOne QS1 are both also pretty ugly IMO.

Like many things in life, whether you are doing a speaking engagement or writing a document for a CEO, know your audience.  The NRA are more often comprised of "A to B" type of people and will gladly swipe that card in the name of supporting the NRA regardless of looks.

Re: This card sure is ugly.

I think that's a fair assessment MissingCalifornia.

I also imagine there is a decent number of people who would think that card looks ugly regardless of how it looks.

In all seriousness though, it's not difficult to come up with an esthetically pleasing design. They totally missed the mark on that one...no pun intended.

Re: This card sure is ugly.

I think the ugliest card I've personally seen is the old design of USAA's debit card:

Thankfully the new design is much better (solid blue).

Re: This card sure is ugly.

As a reminder, the thread topic concerns the aesthetics of a cobranded card.  Specific discussions regarding ideology are beyond the scope of the Forums.

The person that designed this NRA visa should be shot! No pun intended...

It looks like one of those cheap card board promo cards you receive in the mail that get immediately tossed out. 

 

I didn't mind the look of the Cap1 Venture card.

Re: This card sure is ugly.

Ugly cards.. Both my CU cards ... Both debit and credit cards for Hanscom FCU (with EMV).. the original cards looked rather nice with a photo and logo. Now the  ATM card is green with a slight gradient and a poorly sized logo in white and worse yet, is the credit card, GREY with a poor embossing of the logo... Both their original Debit and Credit cards actually looked nice... These look like they were just picked out of Elan's catalog..  Also MIT cards (NO EMV) were reissued without the photographs on them, but it looks like they hired a graphic artist at least to stylize their card.. Still butt ugly compared to their photo cards with a picture of the dome, and a burgendy/maroon background

I think the ugliest card in circulation is the Primor card
