OK Media

TypeTranslucent plastic business card

Thickness: 760 micron 

The OK Media business card showcases our ability to print to the very edge of all four sides of the card. Most automated processes rely on clamping the card in place while being printed, ruling out designs that bleed off the edge of the card. The bespoke, handcrafted nature of our printing process does away with clamps, allowing us to reproduce designs like this one. 

Castrol

Type: Metal business card

Thickness: 400 micron 

This metal business card, produced using 400 micron marine-grade stainless steel, uses a combination of etching and cut-throughs. When etched the lighter core of the metal is revealed. This ensures legibility of contact details and graphics without the need for surface printing. The text running through the middle of the design has been cut away completely using our precision milling process.

HAMS Mechanical Group

Type: Translucent plastic business card

Thickness: 760 micron 

For HAMS we designed a translucent card with the contact details printed in a strong black pigment ink for maximum legibility. We’ve then used a clear gloss ink on the back of the card to recreate a watermark of the logo running through the centre of the card. The clear gloss subtly increases the transparency of the areas to which it’s printed. 

Black Butterfly Clothing

Type: Tinted translucent plastic card

Thickness: 760 micron 

The Black Butterfly business card is crafted using our tinted translucent plastic. We’ve used a highly reflective metallic red ink for the icons and logo accents and a white pigment ink for the contact details and logo text. Each of these inks is applied to the plastic using 200°C of heat and approx 4 tonnes per sq/inch of pressure to ensure a great bond with the plastic. Our tinted translucent business cards are available in ten brilliant colours; red, fuchsia, purple, amber, yellow, cyan, blue, evergreen, lime green and smoked grey. 

Story Structure

TypeMetal business card

Thickness: 400 micron 

The Story Structure business card is carved from 400 micron thick, cosmetic grade stainless steel. The design has been applied using a combination of etching and precision cut-throughs. Although physically thinner than a credit card, the 400 micron steel is far more rigid. When held between the thumb and forefinger it’s impossible to flex. 

Loleasa

TypeTinted translucent plastic business card

Thickness: 760 micron 

Our tinted translucent plastic cards are created by chemically laminating a plastic colour gel with a layer of translucent polymer. The surface of the card has a matt texture helping to diffuse light as it passes through. The tinted translucent plastic business cards are available in ten colours; red, fuchsia (shown here), purple, amber, yellow, cyan, blue, evergreen, lime green and smoked grey.

Corretto Loyalty Card

Type: Letterpress Business Card

Thickness: 900gsm 

Each Corretto loyalty card has been painstakingly handcrafted using traditional letterpress printing techniques. We firstly etched our designer's artwork into a metal block. We then used this to gently embed each ink, one at a time, into the surface of the card stock. The result is a uniquely visual and tactile finish unlike that found in any other sort of production technique.

Test 4

TypeMetal business card

Thickness: 400 micron 

Available in three thicknesses, our metal business cards are carved from cosmetic grade, rolled stainless steel. Our state of the art production capabilities allow us to cut through the steel with incredible precision and to etch the metal surface with bespoke fonts and graphics. Etched text contrasts with the unetched fine grained steel surface, ensuring legiblity. 

After Hours Creative

TypeSatin plastic business card

Thickness: 760 micron 

This business card, crafted for After Hours Creative, uses two inks. The moon and stars are printed using our special defractional ink. The reflected light is split into the colours of the spectrum giving the stars a ‘twinkling’ effect. The company name has been printed using a high glossy black ink. This contast of the glossy ink and the matt plastic produces an effect similar to a UV spot gloss. The remaining contact details have been applied to the back of the card leaving the front uncluttered and clean. 

Team Relentless

TypeMetal business card

Thickness: 400 micron 

The Team Relentless business card is produced using cosmetic grade, rolled stainless steel. As a result the grained texture is always consistent and unblemished. The card has memory, allowing it to spring back to shape when flexed. Using our photo-chemical milling process, we’ve etched and cut away the intricate grille running along the top edge of the design. And rather than printing on to the surface of the metal, which tends to rub away over time, we have etched the text into the steel itself. The lighter core of the steel is revealed providing contrast between the etched and unetched metal.
