Printing Effects on our Metal Business Cards
Recording only for our metal cards. When used on our stainless steel cards, it creates a slightly embedded look with a matte finish. It is a beautiful and luxurious finish for details and design on our metal cards and is striking in combination with a spot color.
Laser engraving provides an extremely unique finish. Most popular on our metal plates, the laser burns the desired design, leaving an interesting finish with different shades of color depending on the surface cut. For example, on our uncoated black duplex cards the end result is a deep “bronze” indentation. On our black metal cards you will see the silver and bronze finishes on our stainless metal and gold cards.
Spot-coloring allows you to add solid, bright colors to metal cards. For best results, spot coloring blends well with etching, although with the right design it can also be self-contained. Add branding or a unique color to the design of painted metal cards.
Pressure cutting allows unique settings for your cards. Both simple and complex designs can be made with precision and intricately with our metal cards, giving you an attractive and beautiful result. Use it to decorate the inside of the card design or to give the rounded corners or cards a unique shape.
Prism and frost Decoration
The unique prism and front finishes available in our luxurious range of black metal cards provide beautiful textured and fingerprint resistant finishes. The prism finish allows for microgeometric patterns, while the frost resistant finish gives the card a fine texture. Our range of luxurious black metal cards with prism or frost-resistant finishes is an elegant and powerful expression.
The variable data allow you to distinguish unique details on each card. An example would be a business card for several people with the same logos and address data, or a member card with a unique member number on each card. Variable data is available on our metal cards and can be laser engraved or dotted.
Our metal cards are available in 3 different finishes. The mirror finish provides a highly reflective and polished surface and gives our gold, pink gold and stainless steel cards a beautiful and luxurious finish. The mirror finish gives an elegant and magnificent end result.
– The mirror finish is less resistant to scratches and stains.
– For best results, we recommend the use of engravings or cross-sections on a large part of the card.
– Different surface finishes are possible on both sides of the cardboard (only one finish on each side).
The original finish is in our stainless steel card warehouse. It is not as reflective as the mirror finish, but it gives a particularly unique “metallic” look and an elegant gloss. It is comparable to the finish of most luxury stainless steel appliances and tools.
– As the original finish is more scratch resistant than the mirror finish, we recommend its use on cards with many unpainted surfaces.
– Applicable only on our stainless steel cards.
– Both sides of the cards can have different surface finishes (only one finish on each side).
The brushed finish is the 3rd type of finish we offer in our range of metal cards. The result is a very fine line brush pattern over the entire gross area of the board. It is ideal for business cards with large amounts of etching.
– Only suitable for metal cards.
– Different surface roughness is possible on both sides of the card (only one surface etching on each side).
