Plastic Cards for Automated Technologies is design of the week

Design of the week

Chris from Automated Technologies is responsible for a lot of the machinery we have here at CPcards. Chris emailed his artwork to us for his plastic cards. He ideally wanted some perspex business cards to really stand out from the crowd so he chose our clear business cards as these were the best solution.

Automated Technologies Ltd is a British design and engineering company based in south Manchester, with over 25 years experience of supplying automation solutions using robots, electronics and software solutions. They adapt the most appropriate technology and machine design to help implement increased throughput and consistency with more efficient and lower production costs.

Chris decided on the following 2 colours: White and Bright Green.

We emailed a photo-realistic email proof to Chris for approval and once he had approved it his cards were printed and dispatched in just 7 working days.

Thanks for your order Chris, we hope you like your cards.

….people are exchanging plastic business cards, not tapping their phones together.

The tradition of exchanging business cards continues even in the age of smartphones. If you want to make a first good impression and establish a connection, a business card is your go-to, even before you contact a potential client, customer, supplier or business partner on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter.

Business cards offer a personal touch that electronic lists just cannot. They are a solid investment for any company, professional or business owner, serving as a physical reminder of having met someone in person rather than trying to understand them via a Google search.

All business cards are not created equal. Some are more attractive and compelling than others. Their construction is one of the factors contributing to their quality and the perceived value of your business. Plastic business cards trump their paper counterparts in this regard, and have become the preferred choice of savvy businesses and professionals not just in the UK but across the world.

Three reasons to start looking at plastic business cards today


example Paper business cards can crumple quite easily in wallets. A severely creased card often suffers the same fate as any piece of paper no longer in use – it is binned. Banks and vending machines may not accept badly worn or very crumpled notes as legal tender. Similarly, faded and wrinkled business cards with illegible details are of no use to anyone. Bottom line is, paper is not durable and paper business cards lose their sheen quickly.

Business cards made of plastic are significantly more durable than paper-based ones. Plastic breaks down very slowly and is highly resistant to water damage and fading. This has made them a practical choice for professionals who work out of an outdoor environment : construction workers, gardeners, boat or cruise operators, tour guides, forest rangers, marine biologists, agriculturists and urban planners, to name a few.

A robust, durable plastic business card is also a handy option for another reason. Some potential customers/clients may not contact you for many weeks or months. When they whip out your business card, you want it to look engaging and dynamic, and not tired and uninviting. This is more easily achieved with plastic than paper.

Visual quotient

example A business card doesn't have to be 'all business'; designers and creatives are adding snippets of their work and even their Instagram feed on the back of their business cards. The modern business card isn't a calling card, it's a representation of your business and capabilities. It can be humorous, edgy or a piece of art in itself. Of course, it can also be strictly professional with only your name and contact information, but it must be elegant and appealing.

How do plastic business cards outperform paper cards on aesthetics? In two key ways, actually. colours render extremely well on plastic. Compare a vibrantly coloured plastic card with a full-colour paper card and you'll instantly see the difference. A plastic business card is more visually stimulating and holds your attention longer.

The tactile appeal of plastic business cards cannot be replicated by paper. They are more substantial and smoother to touch, which enhances the experience of holding and handling them. If you're looking for something shiny and glamorous, a high gloss finish is ideal. For a refined and somber look, a luxury matte finish is the more suitable option.

More choices in artwork

example Continuing from the point above, a variety of artwork and design render well on plastic. A plastic medium allows room for versatility and creativity in a way not possible with a paper base. This is a unique advantage that enables our clients to specify exactly what they need and get it done beautifully!

We get a number of requests for optional extras such as embossing and for membership cards and loyalty cards, magnetic strips and signature strips are a part and parcel of the order requests. Plastic is best suited to these applications, and allow not only us to expand our range of offerings, but also enable you to create cards that serve dual purposes. Where there is a requirement for NFC cards embedded with NFC chips to trigger single-tap sharing of phone numbers, website links and social networking profiles to smart devices, plastic is the default material.

Make an unforgettable impression with plastic business cards and position yourself as a company/professional who stays ahead of the times. It starts here – go for it.
