Plastic card printing with a range of options

Impress can tell you all you need to know about plastic card printing and how to order them. This includes membership, loyalty and plastic business cards.

The majority of plastic card printing uses 760mic PVC card, this means it’s nearly 1mm thick and is the standard thickness used for credit cards and loyalty found in your purse or wallet. 600mic and 450mic PVC is also held in stock. The plastic cards are printed in full colour and finished with various laminations, gloss (the most popular) matt, metallic and a brand new finish ROUGH MATT which gives a canvas feel, please don’t hesitate to ask for samples.

Artworking for plastic cards is a standard process and should be carried out using professional design software from Adobe and  Corel. Artwork to be supplied in PDF format with 1 .5mm bleed, so a 86mm x 54mm card with actully be 89mm x 57mm, allowing 1.5mm to be trimmed off. Fonts need to be outlined or converted to curves. It’s no problem to supply word or publisher files but we will have to work hard and turn them into worthy print files, costs apply! Of course we have full design team and can design from your brief subject to quote.

The standard plastic card measures 86mm x 54mm. Rather than a guillotine trimming plastic cards to size they need to be punched out with a mould commonly referred to as a die, if you need a non standard card size it’s likely we will have to make a new mould, hence extra cost. Impress does have some non standard PVC sizes in stock including a 2 part snap off card and oversize lanyard card

It’s common for a plastic card “to do something” normally connected to an <a ” href=””>EPOS system via a scannable barcode or magnetic strip, easy technology that Impress can offer at a very good price. Technology moves on further with contactless rfid cards, Impress stock Mifare rfid cards available for full colour printing, these are premium range, we can also supply cheaper compatible cards.

Plastic card printing with a range of options

Plastic cards can be solid white, clear or frosted, Printing on white allows full colour coverage. We print Pantone colours out of CMYK as standard but can also use a special Pantone ink mix for accuracy. Printing on clear should be minimal and of course one side only, looks great but not that practical due to scratches, although we do produce for a map reading company that lay the cards over maps, works well for them. Frosted cards can be a designers dream, mysterious and rare which no real issues printing one side
