Overview of Plastic Business Cards

As a specialist in custom business cards, we offer the full gamut of unique products like silk business cards, glossy business cards, translucent business cards, and even metal business cards.  But the most unique product we offer is probably our plastic business cards.  These come in 2 thicknesses, with multiple color options.  You also have the option to either design your plastic business cards online, or upload your own custom artwork.

Plastic business cards are generally available in thicknesses from 12mil to 30mil.  Just for perspective, the 30mil thickness is similar to that of standard credit cards.  Conversely, the 12mil thickness is much thinner, closely mirroring the thickness of a more “standard? business card like silk business cards or glossy business cards. If you have your own design, Nexcards can do your cards in a mid-range 20mil in clear, frost or white. These cards are extremely durable and elegant and makes your cards stand out from the crowd.

In terms of color options, you can select from 1 color, 2 colors, or full color on both sides.  Each option is uniquely priced, and your choice will largely boil down to the level of perceived quality you seek.  For example, the highest quality option would be appropriate for a high-end retailer of big-ticket items, whereas a seller of nuts and bolts would probably be better served pursuing a lower-end option.   The key thing to remember is that the quality of your custom business cards should match the perceived quality of whatever it is that you sell.

Finally, for the ultimate in plastic custom business cards, you can upload your own artwork.  This is a new option that was recently introduced, as previously our plastic business cards could only be designed online.  Thus, if you have a logo, custom imagery / graphics, or precise color requirements, you can now upload your own design to achieve the exact look and feel you’re going for.

If plastic business cards are beyond your budget, consider our new poly frost business cards.  These 10pt slim translucent cards look best in a bold and basic design. The cards get “lighted up” from the light shining through.

So there you have it, a quick snapshot of plastic business cards.  One other thing to keep in mind is that plastic business cards come with rounded corners; square / standard corners are not available because they are too sharp and could cause injury.  The same is true for metal business cards.  Therefore, if you absolutely require square corners, you will have to stick with a more standard type of business card, like silk business cards, translucent business cards, or glossy business cards.
