Plastic Business Cards
For a card that lasts, you can’t beat a plastic business card.
Our white or transparent plastic business cards are printed in full colour and you even have the option to add a special finish; this can be either a 3D spot UV varnish used to highlight areas of your artwork to make the design really jump off the card. Or if your design shouts premium, then opt for gold or silver foil. This makes the ideal prestigious membership or business card that can be used time after time.
This durable PVC will withstand use after use and the rounded corners (3mm radius) will not scuff or degrade when placed in and out of a wallet.
Printed plastic cards can but customised for every occasion:
- Single or double-sided print
- White or transparent 500ï¿½(micron) PVC
- Single or double-sided gold or silver foil
- Single or double-sided 3D spot UV printing
Top Tip: Plastic cards make a great pocket calendar, give your clients something that will last all year.
Please note: With Transparent PVC, only a single-sided special finish is available. If you require 3D spot UV or foiling on both sides, please select a white PVC card.
