The thickness of plastic cards is usually measured in microns (a micron being 1/1000th of a millimeter). Most customers feel that 760 micron is the ideal thickness of plastic as this is identical to an average VISA or Mastercard. While the majority of our products have always been available at that thickness, our range of tinted translucent plastic cards has been the exception. Before today this type of card measured 680 micron. However, we have made improvements to the manufacturing process that allow us to now offer tinted translucent plastic cards at 760 micron as standard without affecting the existing pricing. All orders currently in production will automatically be upgraded to the thicker plastic.
