Plastic Business Cards

Plastic business cards, clear business cards, and transparent business cards

Solid Plastic Business Cards & Clear Business Cards

Plastic business cards provide you with the option to print clear business cards, solid, or tinted, also known as translucent business cards. We also offer black core plastic business cards and custom die cut business cards.

Why Choose Plastic Business Cards?

Plastic business cards offer an attractive alternative to traditional paper business cards. Available in a variety of thicknesses, the rigidity of plastic business cards offers durability superior to paper, as well as brand-defining surface and finishing options.

Plastic Business Card Finish Options

Choose from a variety of finishes that can be applied to your solid or clear business cards, including gloss, matte, foil stamp, and frosted plastic business cards. We also offer the option to add a spot UV coating to either our solid or clear business cards to highlight logos and other design elements.

Clear Business Cards

Clear business cards are the basis for limitless design possibilities that will delight prospective customers and business partners. Built from a desire to spotlight the medium in the design method, clear business cards range from opaque to crystal clear, and everything in between.

Design Tips for Clear Business Cards

While clear business cards offer a wider range of design possibilities, there are a few things to keep in mind. Whether you choose to use the clear portion of your card as an accent or focal point, to avoid translucency on the printed portion of your card, include a silkscreen background in your design. This will leave clear card elements clear, and printed card elements much less so. If you’re looking for longevity, consider a frosted or matte finish. While these finishes do not have the luster of an overlay gloss finish, they do offer scratch protection and a refined look that contrasts well with spot UV.

Working with clear card material offers options not available with solid plastic cards, including the ability to “control” transparency. Unlike solid plastic cards, clear cards open up a host of design options, including opaque and translucent colors, and the ability to use clear card material as a design accent.

Here are a few basic tips to help in the design of your clear business cards:

  • Opaque (solid) colors are achieved by printing a white silkscreen background underneath the color, which also enables double-sided printing on clear cards
  • Translucent (semi-transparent) colors are achieved by removing the white silkscreen background, providing a color-tinted look.
  • If a frosted finish is utilized, it will add a soft white translucent look to clear portions of the card, as well as a smooth dull texture. Frosted plastic business cards can offer a more refined look and feel.
  • With clear business cards, sometimes less crystal clear transparency is most effective. Consider using transparency as an accent to your design. See our gallery for examples.
