    Our black metal business cards are produced in 3.5" x 2" size - which is the standard US business card size.

    Our black metal business cards are printed on a 0.5mm stainless steel

    Our black metal cards are printed on stainless steel with anodized black.

    Choose whether you'd like your stainless steel business cards to be printed without an etch or with a full bleed etch. During the process and acid is used to etch away any unwanted material. The etched surface will appear lighter in colour and this contrasts with the unetched surface of the card.

    Choose whether your business cards should have front or back laser engrave.  In order to create an engraving we use laser to remove areas of the metal to create visible depth and structure.  Laser engravings can be used for symbols, logos or text. 

    Choose whether you'd like your business cards to have variable data such as spot color or laser engrave. Variable-data printing is a form of digital printing in which certain elements may be changed from one printed piece to the next, without stopping or slowing down the printing process.

Stainless Steel Business Cards Printing

Iconic and beautiful, our stainless steel business cards leave a lasting impression. We offer three types of finishings for our stainless steel cards; brush, mirror, and original. These cards are perfect for the individual or business who want to stand out amongst the crowd. Etch, engrave, or cut through almost any text, logo, or pattern. Ink printing, variable data (ex: number ranges), and engraving all require additional costs.


What resolution should my files be for printing?

When printing, 300 PPI is the best print resolution for digital printers. The design of a file with a resolution below 300 PPI will result in blurring and pixelization. On the other hand, you should not design with a resolution higher than 300 PPI. As far as the eye can see, there will be no difference in print quality. It will also make your file much larger (increase file upload/transfer time).

We always recommend 300 PPI drawings to print, but we also know that sometimes you do not have the ability to edit your drawings. If you cannot print your files with a resolution of 300 PPI, you will have to take some measures to ensure that a lower resolution works for you.

We recommend that you set the resolution in your graphics editor (i.e. Photoshop) to 300 PPI before you start drawing your file. Increasing the resolution after the start will still result in blurring/pixelation.

How are my artworks checked?

All the work is checked by our team before printing. If we have any problems with the files, we will contact you and advise you how to change the format. Please note that conversion of both color and size mode will be done automatically without prior information.

During the analysis of the illustrations, we check

– if the files are presented in one of the accepted formats (PDF, JPG, TIFF, EPS or PS).
– if the number of pages is correct
– if the file supplied is greyscale (only if you have ordered a color print)
– if the file is the right size (otherwise we will scale your work to the desired size, however, this may result in a reduction in resolution. No additional bleeding will be added to the process either).
– if the drill lines have been specified
– if the appropriate fonts have been incorporated into the file.

Why do my artwork files need bleed?

To ensure that there are no white areas on the printed product, all files submitted should have a 2mm bleed on each side. This means that your design (both images and graphics) should always be 2mm larger than the actual print format. Failure to do so may result in slight variations, resulting in white margins. To ensure that the fonts and essential elements of your drawing are visible, place them at least 3mm away from the final format (not including bleeding) and do not use edges as edges in layouts.

Optional:
– If you are submitting data for printing in an open format, the bleed should be 4mm on each side (e.g. A4 size including bleed should be 301×214mm).
– If you are submitting files for presentation folders, banners, monthly calendars, packaging or any other promotional technology products, please prepare a file with 3mm bleed on each side
– Envelopes should be supplied with a 1mm bleed.
– The textile elastic frames must be bled 15mm.

If you need more information, please consult our artwork instructions.

What file types can my artwork be?

You can upload files in the following formats:
JPG, PDF, EPS, TIFF, PS (PostScript)

Make sure that your PDF file is saved directly from your graphics program in standard PDF/X format (PDF/X3 or PDF/X1a). To avoid problems with layers and transparencies during the printing process, it is recommended to use the “1.3 compatibility” setting when saving artworks.

If you are sending TIFF files, be sure to reduce the number of layers to one.

To avoid problems with color variation or printed image, please do not use pre-separated data from DCS EPS.

Are you an eco-friendly printer?

Yes we are! We offer the widest range of eco-friendly printing products available in New York using soy ink, including recycled business cards, brochures, presentation folders, sales sheets, stationery, catalogs, flyers, calendars and more. Recycled paper is now our standard stock.

Historically, the printing industry has had a poor reputation for caring for the environment, with excessive use of water and electricity, paper waste and the use of volatile chemicals resulting in toxic waste. Protecting the environment is one of New York Print’s major concerns, and we strive to put our planet first.

And this is how Print New York is making a difference:

– Using soy-based inks
– Use of recycled paper stocks as standard
– Printing methods, such as duplex printing, that reduce paper usage
– Modern machines that significantly reduce energy consumption
– Elimination of toxic and volatile chemicals
– Alcohol-free presses
– We recycle redundant machines and computer parts.
– We recycle our printing plates, press blankets, bottles, cans and containers

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.

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.
