Can I add my business’ contact information to the back of the card?

Can magstripes be added to cards, key tags, and combo cards?

Yes. Plastic Resource can add magstripes to cards, key tags, and combo cards depending on the nature of the encoding/numbering required on the key tags and combo cards. Contact us at sales@plasticresource.com or 833-290-5684 for additional information.

Can you attach my gift cards to the carrier?

Can you design me custom cards or key tags?

Yes. We have full in-house capabilities to assist you in designing your custom gift cards and key tags. To learn more visit the Custom Design Services web page.

Can you print on both sides of a transparent plastic business card?

Yes. Because of the transparency printing on both sides may not be possible (particularly on clear cards). Adding white ink to limit the transparency is a must on double-sided cards. If you have not printed on transparent plastic before, we highly recommend a press proof.

Can you produce a standard business card size (2 x 3.5) on plastic?

Yes. We have a custom die for square or rounded corners using the same dimensions (2 x 3.5) as your standard business cards. Custom dies (unique shapes and sizes) are also available for an additional charge. Business cards are also available in a selection of material like clear, frosted and white plastic.

How transparent are the plastic business cards?

We offer two types of transparent business cards: clear (fully transparent) and frosted (partially transparent). The level of transparency also depends on the card design and the color of the ink. Darker colors are less transparent than light colors. We often add white ink to the card to limit the transparency of lighter colors.

I am designing my own artwork. Where can I get design templates and specifications?

You will find design specifications, recommendations, and downloadable templates in a number of popular file formats (AI, PDF, and PSD) on the “Create Your Custom Card” web page. If you are designing a card or key tag with a custom die cut shape, please contact us to discuss details.

If I choose transparent plastic, does it affect the vibrancy of the card?

Transparent plastic is popular for plastic business cards. You need to keep the material in mind when you design your card as it does affect the vibrancy of the card — especially with lighter colors. We will often add white ink to the card to make the certain colors more vibrant. The level of transparency/color vibrancy may not be fully reflected in a proof. If you have not printed on transparent plastic before, we highly recommend a press proof.
