An additional detail that I find useful is the orange border -- makes the Discover that much easier to distinguish from other cards.


Yes! The border colors are really nice. Disco is orange, FU is green, Uber is a blueish green... but BofA is white plastic.

 

I will chime in that I recently got to see and feel the Chase Amazon (Very nice, though a thinner metal), CSP (Absolutely glorious), and Amex BC (Almost musty, though the holgram effect is nice). I need to make friends who have the Ritz card though!

I don't see why they only do that on a pink card... They should do a black card with gold monogram.

BoA needs to release a snakeskin card.   "New from Bank of America, the BoA constrictor!"

I love the way my Discover Pride card looks. The colors make me so happy. 

My Amex BCP is such an ugly duckling. I use to think it was a cool card design, but now I wish they would revamp the look. 


Personally I think the BCP would look a bit better if the card didn't become so "foggy" after some time. It seems as if the card becomes less transparent as it ages. If the card was 100% transparent I would think it's a great design. 


Off topic but a cloudy "transparency" like our government Smiley Wink

Long ago (1982) Michigan National Bank issued and all Black Premium Visa with gold and blue with white Visa logo. It was an eye catcher and I received many comments/compliments. How successful was it? The Michigan National Bank was acquired and disappeared Smiley Wink

I loved the Orange around the disco so I could always find it easily then my Sears MasterCard came with the same Orange around the edges so I end up grabbing one thinking it is the other.
