The shapes for die cutting are limitless.  Die cutting provides an extremely crisp, smooth edge cut that can include intricately fine details giving your artwork a distinctive look not able to be achieved with standard scissor and guillotine cutting.

The etched surface will appear lighter in colour and this contrasts with the unetched surface of the card.

Black Metal Business Cards Printing

We offer standard US size black metal business cards (3.5″ x 2″) with additional features such as etching, spot color, laser engrave or variable data. All our black metal business cards have custom die cutting included the price. These cards are perfect for the individual or business who wants to stand out and make a lasting impression.

Our special matt black metal business cards are made from marine grade stainless steel and are simply gorgeous. Stainless steel is used in the production of all of our metal business cards. This allows us to ensure that the metal’s texture and color are consistent even in big volumes. The metal we employ is special in that it can keep its shape even when bent. Our business cards will not rust or corrode and are extremely resistant to the elements.

Metal Card Effects

To build these cards, we begin by anodizing our rolled stainless steel, which is marine quality. The metal’s surface is given a strong, matt polish as a result of this process. Using the same method as our original metal business cards, we chemically etch and cut the artwork into its surface. The end product is simply amazing.

Acids are used to etch details such as writing and images. After that, the card is coated with an unique protective foil and exposed to UV light. The portions that require etching are exposed, while the remainder of the area is blocked by the foil. ​

We can etch and cut the steel with great precision using our innovative photochemical milling method. This enables elaborate patterns, holes, and grilles to be created. We etch the text into the matt finish itself, rather than printing it onto the metal’s surface, which tends to rub away over time. The lighter stainless steel shines through, creating a contrast between the black coating and the exposed metal. This helps the text and artwork to stand out against the card’s dark background.

We can not only cut through the steel, but we can also change the shape of the card by removing metal from the edges. Furthermore, there is no additional payment as long as the chosen shape falls within the dimensions of a regular card.

What is CMYK?

In offset printing, the standard color mode used in CMYK. CMYK, or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black represent the four process colours in this mode. When you are creating your files, be sure to check the color mode as programs like Photoshop by default use RBG color, not CMYK. CMYK may look more dull on a computer screen than RGB; more noticeable in large solid color areas.

Accepted File Formats

We require industry standard formats for all uploaded files. We keep quality in mind when we print every job. We accept the following file formats: TIF – JPG – PDF – EPS – PSD. We accept CorelDraw, Pagemaker & Quark or similar files by converting them to industry standard graphic formats like JPG, TIF or PDF.

Rich Black vs 100% Black

Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 points should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold. For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black.

What Paper to Choose?

Paper should be addressed first in your design work. With postcards, the best option is to choose a thicker cardstock instead of a thinner text weight. The difference between these 2 types of paper is thickness. Our text weight is based on pounds and our card stock is weighted by points. Want to feel the difference? Order a Free Sample Kit today.

What is Font Outlining?

We might not have the same fonts on our systems as your computer, so when saving your files in a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.

Coating Types

We have many coating options at Printing New York. Matte, UV, silk and spot UV. Choose the coating based on your application. For example, if you want to write on your cards with a pen, do not choose UV coating as a pen won’t write on it. In this case a matte or uncoated stock coating would suit. Choose UV coating for flyers or banners and our rich silk gives a touch of elegance; 16pt stock a more durable feeling.

Unique Printing Effects

Exclusive to our metal business cards.

Stainless Steel Business Cards 6


Etching is exclusively available on our metal cards. When applied on our stainless steel cards, it gives them a slightly recessed appearance and a matte surface. If used in conjunction with a spot color, it is a lovely and luxurious finishing for details and designs on metal cards, and it is very eye-catching if used with spot-colors.

Laser Engraving Metal Cards

Laser Engraving

Laser engraving produces a finish that is truly one-of-a-kind. A laser, which is used most commonly on our metal cards, burns away the desired design, creating an interesting finish with varying colors depending on where the surface has been carved off. The completed result, for example, on our black duplex uncoated card materials, gives the appearance of a deep depressed ‘bronze’ finish. On our stainless and gold metal cards, you will see a silver finish, and on our black metal cards, you will see a bronze finish.

Cut-Through Die Cutting

Cut through die cutting allows you to create one-of-a-kind adaptations for your cards. The ability to cut accurately and elaborately through our metal cards allows for the creation of both basic and complicated designs, resulting in an eye-catching and attractive final product. Use it to add decorations to the inside of your card design, or to give your cards rounded corners or a unique form.

Spot Color Metal Business Card

Spot Coloring

Spot coloring is a technique that allows for the addition of bright solid colors on metal cards. If possible, spot coloring should be used in conjunction with etching for the best results, while it can be used on its own with the correct design. Spot color is a great way to give your metal card designs a distinctive look or a special hue.

Variable Data

Variable data enables for the inclusion of unique details on each card that are distinct from the others. Business cards for more than one individual with the identical logos and address details, or membership cards with each card having its own unique membership number. A variety of variable data is accessible on our metal cards, and it can be laser etched or applied in one color using a spot color.

Luxury Black Metal Business Cards 2

Frost & Prism Finish

Our distinctive frost or prism front finishing, which is only available on our luxury black metal card collection, results in a lovely textured and finger print resistant finish that is both elegant and durable. When using prism finishing, you may create micro geometric patterns on the card, whereas frost finishing creates a faint texture all over the card. Our luxurious black metal card collection, available in prism or frost finishes, makes an elegant and dramatic statement.

Gold Business Cards 4

Mirror Finish

Our gold, rose gold, and stainless steel metal cards have a delightfully sumptuous feel thanks to the use of mirror finishing, which creates a highly shiny and polished surface that reflects light brilliantly. The final product is elegant and beautiful, thanks to the use of mirror finishing.

Stainless Steel Cards 2

Original Finish

Our stainless steel metal card material has a unique polish that distinguishes it from the competition. It is not as reflective as mirror finishing, but it does have a distinctive ‘metal’ appearance and an attractive sheen to it that makes it stand out. It has a similar appearance to the finish seen on most high-end stainless steel appliances and tools.

Brushed Finish Metal Business Card

Brushed Finish

Our metal card assortment includes three different types of finishes, the third of which is brushed. This finish produces a very delicate linear brush pattern across the surface of the card that has not been etched. Cardstock with huge quantities of etching or large amounts of un-etched surface are the best candidates for this technique.

    I was genuinely concerned about this order, but it was within my budget for a test run, so I decided to take a chance, which I am glad I did. My black metal business cards turned out fantastically, Eli was extremely responsive, and I needed them in a hurry. I was worried that the lettering might bleed or that the cards would seem different in person, but these cards look and feel fantastic. I would highly suggest this product and would buy it again in a heartbeat. Thank you really much!!!
