Our white or transparent plastic business cards are printed in full colour and you even have the option to add a special finish; this can be either a 3D spot UV varnish used to highlight areas of your artwork to make the design really jump off the card. Or if your design shouts premium, then opt for gold or silver foil. This makes the ideal prestigious membership or business card that can be used time after time.
This durable PVC will withstand use after use and the rounded corners (3mm radius) will not scuff or degrade when placed in and out of a wallet.

Artwork specification for plastic card printing:
For plastic cards with a special finish:
If you are printing on one side of the card, then a 2-page PDF is required:
Page 1 is the CMYK artwork
Page 2 is the Foil/3D spot UV artwork
If you are printing a double-sided document, with foil / 3D UV on one side, please submit a 4-page PDF:
Page 1 is the front of the artwork
Page 2 is the back of the artwork
Page 3 is the foil artwork for the front
Page 4 is blank
The Foil/3D spot UV artwork should contain solid black shapes in the exact position where the special finish is required. Please ensure Foil/3D spot UV artwork is supplied as a vector and 100% black only and does not contain any cyan, magenta or yellow.
Please note: Foil application has registration tolerances of approximately ±0.5 mm. It is not therefore recommended that small text or thin lines are foiled as perfect register cannot be guaranteed. The minimum font size is 10pt and line weights should be at least 1pt.
