Whether it's our translucent plastic cards, our etched metal cards or our handcrafted letterpress cards, we strive for the exceptional.

 

Founded in 2007, PlasmaDesign’s nucleus is a small, dedicated team of designers and craftsmen. Together we produce the worlds most innovative business cards. 

We start by offering every customer a free design service. We don't believe in templates. Instead we believe that the development of the artwork should be a collaborative, creative process that’s given the time and attention it deserves.

Once designed, our craftsmen use traditional artisanal manufacturing techniques, helping to preserve crafts that would otherwise fall by the wayside in our increasingly automated and impersonal world.

It’s this dedication to truly bespoke design and traditional production methods that cultivates a level of ownership, pride and excellence that shines through in our products.

Our DesigNs

We aim to take the pain out of the process of ordering a bespoke business card by providing a free design service. Our designers do not believe in templates. Instead they give your business card design the time and attention it deserves, ensuring that the finished article is as unique as you and your organisation..

Our Story

We combine cutting edge design with artisanal manufacturing techniques, helping to preserve crafts that would otherwise fall by the wayside in our increasingly automated world. Although we ship to 128 countries, we believe in supporting our community by employing locally and manufacturing our cards in the UK.

 

We believe that your business card should be as unique as the person handing it out.

 

Metal Business
Cards

Our metal business cards make a statement. Manufactured from marine grade, rolled stainless steel using state of the art photo-etching, automated milling and electrophoretic processes, they marry form and function perfectly. We intricately cut through the metal and etch into the steel's surface.


Plastic Business
Cards

Our plastic business cards are truly unique. The plastic is the same thickness as a standard credit card. Every single one is printed by hand, bringing modern materials and traditional manufacturing techniques together in an innovative business card that ensures you stands out from the crowd. 


Letterpress Business Cards

Our letterpress business cards are printed by hand using traditional artisanal techniques. There’s no automation and no compromise. Each ink is gently embedded into the subtly textured surface. A seam of colour runs through the centre of the triple ply card, adding a unique finishing touch.


Standard Business Cards

Our standard business cards are manufactured using thick 400gsm ultra white stock and printed in full colour on both sides. Colours are vibrant, text is crisp. Matt lamination protects the surface. We also offer the options of UV spot gloss and metallic foiling.

No artwork? No problem.

We provide a completely free design service to customers who don't already have print ready artwork. Once we have collected a few pieces of information our design team puts together an initial concept and first draft. We then generate a photo-realistic digital mockup using our innovative proofing system. This shows exactly how the card would look once produced. Then, using your feedback, we make revisions until you are 100% happy with the layout. To request your design simply click 'get started'. You'll be presented with a form that collects the information we need. You’ll also be able to upload an existing logo. We'll then send you a digital proof.


Completely Bespoke

No two people or businesses are alike. We've created artwork for tens of thousands of customers and never come across two organisations whose requirements are identical. We don’t believe in templates or cookie cutter solutions. Instead we strongly believe that the development of the artwork should be a collaborative, creative process that is given the time and attention it deserves. It’s the only way to make sure that the business card is as unique as the person handing it out.

Innovative Proofs

Customers need an understanding of how the final product will look and feel before placing an order. Yet the cost of tooling makes it impractical to manufacture physical proofs. We’ve solved this dilemma by developing an advanced digital proofing system. This enables us to generate digital proofs showing exactly how the card will look once produced. Coupled with our ability to provide free samples of previously manufactured cards, the customer can accurately assess the design and quality of their own card before placing their order. 

Multiple Revisions

We love to design. We think we’re pretty good. But we are not naïve enough to think that the first design we send you will be a winner. There will be elements you like and some you don’t. Every customer has different tastes and priorities. So we don’t place an arbitrary limit on the number of revisions we’re prepared to undertake. Instead we work with you, using your feedback to patiently revise and alter the artwork, moving the project forward until you are 100% happy with the way it looks.

Sometimes the old ways truly are the best ways. The handcrafted nature of our production process enables us to reproduce artwork that wouldn't otherwise be possible. This dedication to traditional techniques cultivates a level of ownership and pride that’s simply not possible when production is heavily automated.
