Satin Black Plastic Cards
Satin Black business cardsSatin Black Plastic Cards are made from a durable black plastic with a high quality satin 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 the satin black card 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.

We understand that not everyone has the ability to create their own card design. You need the know how along with the dedicated expensive software and of course lots of time.
When we have created your card design, we will email a realistic proof to you to approve.
Our standard turnaround time is just 6 working days.
However, if you need your cards even quicker you can choose our express service and we guarantee to dispatch your cards in 4 working days by next day courier.
Unlike a lot of our competitors, we are able to offer incredibly fast turnaround times as we proudly manufacture our plastic cards right here in England
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.
We can apply a gloss black ink on the cards 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 of the satin black plastic that are printed with the glossy black ink look glossy and have a different feel and texture to the rest of the card.
Our satin black plastic cards are the same size and thickness as a credit or debit card (86 x 54mm and 760 microns thick) with a high quality satin finish (non glossy).
They have rounded corners and are 100% opaque allowing information to be printed on both sides of the card.

Each colour is applied to the card using a very specilised process which uses upto 8 tons of force and temperatures over 200°C.
Typically we print upto 4 ink colours onto each side of the satin black plastic cards. Each colour is individually printed in separate printing passes with incredible precision.
Our top of the range printing machinery is designed specifically for printing plastic cards and our highly efficient work flow allows us to produce the finest quality plastic cards at affordable prices whilst offering an incredibly fast turnaround.

The business card above is a matt black business card (satin black plastic card) printed with metallic gold and holoprint.
Our satin black plastic cards are also referred to as: black plastic cards, black business cards, matt plastic cards and matt business cards.
Our satin black plastic cards can be printed with up to four ink colours per side. We also offer, at no extra cost, metallic gold or silver plastic cards plus a wide range of coloured plastic. Our satin black plastic cards are solid plastic cards and are credit card size and thickness (760 microns) with rounded corners.
If your design has many colours, then it may be more cost effective to use our full colour plastic cards with a matt finish. As they are printed in full colour on each side, we can print a black background and apply a matt finish to the cards so they look very similar to our satin black plastic cards.
Sometimes people ask if we also do cards with a matt finish. The best answer is the cards do have a matt finish but they are called satin black (we think it sounds better than matt black) however, rest assured that matt black or satin black are the same thing.
