Mobile Empire Detailing

Type: Satin black plastic business card

Thickness: 760 micron 

This plastic business card, designed and produced for Mobile Empire Detailing, uses three inks. The first, a glossy black ink is applied initially. This creates the subtle watermark in the background by producing a contrast in textures between the glossy ink and the matt plastic. We’ve then applied a highly reflective metallic copper and a drafractional ink. This special type of ink reflects light in a similar manner as the surface of a CD, splitting the white light into the colours of the spectrum.  

Simply Abu Dhabi

Type: Satin plastic business card

Thickness: 760 micron 

The ‘Simply Abu Dhabi’ satin plastic business card uses two inks. First we print the crest and text using a luxurious metallic gold ink. Then, using a high-gloss black ink, we apply the floral pattern which bleeds off the left edge of the card. The glossy ink contrasts with the matt texture of the plastic, resulting in an effect similar to a UV spot gloss finish. 

JustTalk

Thickness: 760 micron 

Our traditional printing techniques allow for the reproduction of any font or character type, including Asian, Cyrillic and Russian alphabets. As well as standard pigment inks, we’re able to apply stunning metallic inks to the plastic. Our range of metallic colours are vibrant and highly reflective; the ever popular silver being almost chrome-like.  

Kinet X

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. Our artisan hot foil printers apply the ink to the cards surface using traditional methods. For the Kinet X card we’ve applied a highly reflective metallic light green ink to the front and and a strong grey pigment ink to the back.

K3 Cubed

TypeTranslucent plastic business card

Thickness: 760 micron 

Many of our competitors have chosen to automate the printing process. To do so the blank plastic card has to be gripped on at least two sides as it passes through their automated printing equipment. This prevents them from printing to the edge of the card. We have chosen a different path. We take pride in the handcrafted nature of our product. Each card is aligned and printed using traditional techniques. Our choice to avoid automation means we can run rings around the limitations of more automated suppliers, including printing to the very edge of all four sides if required. This is ably demonstrated by the K3 Cubed translucent plastic card. 

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. 

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.

INOX

TypeMetal business card

Thickness: 300 micron 

The INOX metal business card is produced using 300 micron cosmetic grade stainless steel. The logo and contact details have been etched into the surface of the metal, exposing the lighter core of the steel and ensuring good legibility. We’ve also cut away the company name, providing both visual and tactile interest to the design. 

Web Lab

TypeTranslucent plastic business card

Thickness: 760 micron 

The Web Lab plastic business card utilises both our highly reflective metallic inks and our vibrant pigment inks to create a strong, contemporary design that grabs attention. The contact details have been printed using metallic silver while the icons use a strong red pigment ink. The card measures 760 micron in thickness; the same as a standard credit card.
