We recently printed this frosted plastic card for a customer.
It is printed with holoprint and black and we think it looks rather stunning.
We find holoprint on frosted plastic is a very popular colour choice, sometime the holoprint is only used for a very small aspect of the design but it still remains effective in catching the eye.
On this example, the holoprint was printed first with the black then printed over the top so the holoprint of the film shows through the areas where the black is not printed.
This week we have received lots of orders for frosted cards with a similar design to our tripod example, see our Frosted Plastic Cards page
This card is a frosted clear plastic card printed with small ovals printed with clear foil on the back which gives a subtle watermark effect and holoprint printed on the front of the card.
Clear Business Cards
We have a stunning range of metallic and non metallic ink colours that we can print onto our frosted plastic cards. We find our customers often miss the lovely photos we have on our website so I thought I would put this page together to help raise awareness of the ink colours.
Metallic Ink Colours
The beauty of hot foil printing is the ability to print dazzling metallic ink colours. A lot of our customers choose a metallic ink colour either as the sole ink colour or to compliment other colours.
For example, for the best possibly clarity and ease of reading black ink can be selected for the writing and contact details and metallic gold or metallic silver (or both) for graphic aspects of the design or the logo or part of the logo to really make the card stand out and get noticed.

See through plastic business cards
We have printed see through plastic business cards for many years. We call them frosted translucent plastic cards or frosted clear plastic cards. This is because they are not 100% crystal clear with them having a frosted finish.
Our frosted translucent plastic cards can be printed with either a single ink colour or multiple ink colours. We have a wide range of ink colours available which include dazzling metallic colours. Our metallic colours include gold, metallic silver metallic red, metallic blue etc. Our full range of ink colours can be found here
We find the most popular ink colour is metallic silver. Usually printed on it’s own but of course it can be combined with other colours. For example, a popular choice of ink colours is metallic silver and black ink (2 ink colours in total). With it being only 2 ink colours it is cheaper than choosing 3 or 4 ink colours but still looks absolutely stunning.

Let us know your favourite ink colour combinations or which example you think are the best?
On our main website we have lots of example cards. The ink colours we have chosen for the examples are ones that we think look the best, however they can be changed to cater for your preferences.
One ink colour that you may not be familiar with is called holoprint. It looks similar to metallic silver but as you angle the card to the light, all the colours of the rainbow can be seen to shimmer in the light. It is a similar effect to how a CD looks as you angle it in the light.
