A Whiter Shade of Plastic
It’s important to know what colors plastic business cards come in. This will help you in creating an effective design:
Clear. Your card will be completely transparent on both sides. This means the white areas of your design will appear transparent. This clean finish highlights important information in your card such as the company logo and information.
A thin film protects the surface of transparent plastic business cards against scratches. Don't forget to remove the film from each card before handing out.
- Frosted. The white areas of your design will appear frosted. Colors and graphics pop and contrast well against the translucent background.
- White. Your business card will be an opaque white. Maximize the space by printing on both sides of the card. Use vivid or dark colors to contrast with the white background or emphasize important details of your plastic business card.
Note: When you print plastic business cards, keep in mind that the minimum font size for clear and frosted background is 8 pt. and above, while the line size must be at least 1.5 pts. thick.
Make the Most of Your Plastic
It’s not enough to have a solid and durable material for your business card. What you put in it can help your plastic business card printing go a long way. To maximize the card’s use and the opportunity, you need to:
- Know your worth. Make sure your business card design matches the value of your plastic card and represents your company. It doesn’t have to be too complicated or very detailed, but it does need to be clean, professional and straight to the point.
- Put all the important stuff in. If you’re a business or selling a service, you need to put your company name, logo, and colors to emphasize your brand. Don’t forget the essentials like your contact information and your nature of business too.
- Go easy on the eyes. Pick fonts that will be easy to read and comprehend especially on a clear or frosted background. The same goes for your color choices.
- Make sure everything is crystal clear. Triple check everything for typos, grammar, font type, font size and layout. Is it legible? Will it be easily understood?
- Go with a pro. Have a professional design your card. You won’t have to worry about a thing, and you are sure to get top notch design every time.
