Stainless Steel Business Cards
Business cards have long been an integral part of modern business. As simple as they are, they have become one of the most iconic symbols in the business world. There is a reason for that. Given their uniqueness, design and finally signature, they have become almost an integral part of the business. Of the many metals and alloys that are used to make business cards, some of the best end up being made of stainless steel. The reason for this is because of the many advantages they have.
Stainless steel business cards are corrosion resistant
Although metal cards are a popular choice, they have a significant drawback which is that they corrode. This is especially true for metals such as copper. At the same time, this is not the case for stainless steel, given its resistance to corrosion.
Corrosion is a process in which the metal oxidizes and deteriorates constantly, and is a serious problem when it comes to managing metal objects and structures. In fact, the same problems exist when cards are made of metals. This is by far one of the best metal cards you can look for, because they are almost impossible to rust, even in very bad conditions.
All this helps to keep them in good condition for a long time and literally leaves a lasting impression. Note that there are some limitations even for stainless steel. For example, exposure to salt water, especially over a long period of time, tends to corrode even stainless steel.
Other metals can persist for a longer period of time when repainted, as they act as a protective sheath against exposure to the surrounding atmosphere, allowing it to last longer. This, however, can increase the final cost of production if the entire surface is coated with paint.
Long-lasting metal cards with rust protection
This is not about corrosion, as mentioned in the first paragraph, but about the fact that it is durable in itself. Stainless steel business cards, if handled and stored properly, can last for years without any damage. There is a reason why stainless steel is used in everything from tools to construction and everything in between.
This feature makes stainless steel cards especially useful when the customer wants to know them for a long period of time.
In turn, this makes steel a great choice for those who are interested in making business cards durable.
Able to be Etched easily
Although stainless steel or other metals with commercial contact information are usually printed, a more commonly used strategy is etching. Engraving, by hand or by means such as a laser, removes a thin layer of metal from the surface of the card, which when done on a model, allows the information to be displayed.
Despite its strength and resistance, stainless steel is easily engraved by both physical and laser means, making it an ideal choice if you need an engraved metal card. Again, you may be interested in acid-etched cards, which although rare, are also a suitable option.
