Satin / Matte Black Plastic Cards

Satin Black Plastic Business Cards


Our Satin Black Plastic Business Cards are made from a durable black plastic with a high quality satin (matte) finish (non glossy).

As they have 100% opaque, to fully utilise the space, printing can be done on both sides to convey more information.

They have always been popular with our customers who are looking for a sophisticated look and we take as much pride in printing them as you will take in handing them out.

Opting for a glossy black ink to be printed as part of your design produces a lovely subtle watermark effect where the look and texture of changes where the gloss black ink is applied.

Once you have placed your order we will email a wonderful realistic proof usually within one hour.

You can use our free artwork service or if you have your own artwork that you would like us to print please send it to us, artwork guides can be found here to ensure that you have it to the right size and specification.

metallic colours

Stunning Metallic
Foil Colours

We have lots of lovely metallic colours. The most popular metallic colour is metallic silver, followed closely by metallic gold.

We also have a very unusual foil, holoprint which refracts the light to create a rainbow effect of colour. When viewed normally it looks like metallic silver but as it is angled in the light all the colours of the rainbow can be seen, similar to how a CD looks as it is angled in the light.

Our full range of colours can be found here including a video showing holoprint.

Gloss Black Ink

We can apply a gloss black ink to create a subtle watermark type effect.

The effect is quite subtle and becomes more visible when held in the light at the correct angle. The parts that are printed with the glossy black ink look glossy and have a different feel and texture.
