Are plastic business cards waterproof?

While our plastic business cards are designed to put up a fight against wear and tear, we recommend keeping them away from water. The plastic coating on these cards is designed to repel water, however as our plastic business cards are created by sealing 250gsm printed paper within PVC plastic, we cannot guarantee that water will not penetrate the enclosed paper via the edges if submerged. If you're looking for fully waterproof business cards, head over to our waterproof business card printing page.

How does your plastic business card printing work?

Great question! Our plastic business cards are made by first printing your design onto our specially selected 250gsm cardstock, and then encapsulating it inside a sheet of plastic. This means that your designs are not actually printed on the plastic, but inside it. Magic, right?

Can you print double-sided plastic business cards?

Of course we can! In the same that we print conventional double-sided business cards, we would print your designs on each side of your paper card, masterfully sealing it between 2 layers of crystal clear PVC to create a stunning double-sided plastic business card that stands the test of time.

Do the best plastic business cards have rounded corners?

We certainly think so. From experience, rounded corners are far easier for your customers and clients to handle, slipping in-and-out of wallets easily (much like a debit card), while preventing the discomfort of sharp plastic corners. Rounding the corners of your plastic business cards softens the edges, making the card much kinder to hold.

What is the difference between 600 Micron and 760 Micron?

In short, the 760 Micron coating is thicker and more durable than the 600 Micron coating. Both materials are made to last, however the 760 Micron has our vote if you’re looking for an extra-tough, ultra-sturdy plastic business card.

Can you write on plastic business cards?

Yes and no. We’ve found that some pens work with our PVC coating and some simply don’t. Finding the right pen could be a process of trial and error, and drying time would be required with most pens to stop the ink from smudging. If you’re looking for a business card to write on and don’t require plastic, we recommend looking at our paper business cards, if you want to see these before committing to an order, why not browse our sample packs?
