Unique Printing Effects
Exclusive to our metal business cards.
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 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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
