Design your metallic business card

With metallic business cards you can create a strong and different impression on your customer. In comparison to paper business cards, metallic business cards instantly capture the attention of your customers as well as competitors. It helps you to stand out from the crowd. With metallic business cards the game has become bigger and better.

Available in a your choice of traditional yellow or rose hues, our gold metal cards are manufactured by cutting and etching the design on to polished bronze. We then apply an oleophobic, transparent lacquer, protecting the bronze from natural tarnishing and reducing its tendency to attract fingerprints. The result is a gold coloured card that retains the spectacular visual properties of the metal without suffering the drawbacks usually associated with bronze. Prices start at £229 for 100

Available in three thicknesses, our original metal business cards are carved from marine grade, rolled stainless steel. Our state of the art production capabilities allows us to cut through the steel with incredible precision and to etch the metal surface with bespoke fonts and graphics. We can even alter the shape of the cards perimeter. Etched text contrasts with the unetched fine grained steel surface, ensuring legibility.

MARINE GRADE STAINLESS STEEL

Our metal cards are produced using marine grade stainless steel. As a result, the grained texture is always consistent and unblemished. The card has memory, allowing it to spring back to shape when flexed. Moreover, because its stainless steel, everyday use will not cause it to tarnish or corrode over time.

CUT & ETCH

Using our advanced photochemical milling process, we can etch and cut the steel with incredible precision. This allows for intricate patterns, perforations and grilles. Rather than printing onto the surface of the metal, which tends to rub away over time, we etch the text into the steel itself. The lighter core of the steel is revealed providing contrast between the etched and unetched metal.

CUSTOM SHAPING

Not only can we cut through the steel, but we can also alter the shape of the card itself by cutting away metal from the perimeter. Moreover, as long as the desired shape fits within the dimensions of a standard card, there is no additional charge.

THREE THICKNESSES

The 200 micron metal cards are thinner than a standard credit card but because they are manufactured using stainless steel, they have about the same rigidity when flexed between thumb and finger. The 400 micron cards (the thickest we produce) are extremely rigid and difficult to flex. The 300 micron sits somewhere between the two.

  1. Text and graphics are chemically milled away from the card by first applying a photo-resistive film to the surface of the metal and exposing the steel to acid.
     

  2. Once the surface of the stainless steel has been etched away the lighter core of the material is exposed, ensuring contrast and legibility. 
     

  3. Precision cut-throughs are achieved by etching into the same position on the front and back of the stainless steel, until the two areas meet, forming a hole.
