Barcode start number on plastic cards

plastic cards special offer

A customer placed an order today for the 760 micron plastic cards with barcodes. When I asked what number to start the barcode sequence at they just said 1, I enquired as to how many zeros they required in front of this and the reply was that they wanted the usual.

I just wanted to let you know that as far as I know there is no usual, sometimes the software system even needs a certain number of characters for the barcode to be read.

If in doubt I would recommend that you contact your software supplier to clarify the requirements or if you are already using cards with your system have a look what is on these.

Just for information, we can produce the following cards with barcodes:

Full colour in 760 micron 86 x 54mm

Full colour in 680 micron 86 x 54mm

Full colour in 420 micron 86 x 54mm

and Key cards Full colour in 680 micron 29 x 54mm

If you have any questions please get in touch.

Turnaround times on plastic cards

plastic cards special offer

Hi all,

We, like pretty much everyone else in this country, understand that times are tough financially. Many repeat customers are asking us for better prices and comparing us unfairly to companies who produce outside the UK.

We have a lot to offer, fair prices, fast turnaround, supporting the economy by keeping production in England and the same holidays as you.

Before placing an order with a company offering what appear to be out of this world prices ask yourself a few questions e.g.

1) What is the turnaround – we have viewed quotes from competitors stating approx. 20 working days for delivery – that is a month! Ok you think your not in a rush for them at the moment but give it a month or so and you may well be needing them sooner however as your cards are still in China very little can be done to speed them up!

2) Are the cards produced in England? We are aware of companies telling customers that the cards are printed in England and they clearly are not. Think again about the turnaround times if they are excessive there will be a reason for this e.g. they are being shipped in from China.

3) Imagine trying to contact a company who is having two weeks off for Chinese new year celebrations! You just want your cards but no one is answering emails or the phone and clearly your cards are not being produced! Being in England, we are closed for the bank holidays and two weeks over Christmas.

4) Check out review sites before placing an order. Be very wary of ones will bad reviews!

Finally, and I know this may seen extreme, but lets all try to support our own family, friends, neighbours, acquaintances etc by supporting the UK economy who knows what effect shopping just on price alone will have in the future, unfortunately I sense more big name stores closing in this country. Sorry to not leave this blog on a cheery note – I promise the next one will be happier!

Plastic card printing on a snowy day

plastic cards special offer

Well today has started well, we came into work before the worst of the snow hit us to find over night we had received around twice the amount of plastic card orders than normal

Luckily, we all got in early so managed to catch up quickly, which was a good job as a whole stack of orders later followed, along with a lot of snow.

The snow here is pretty bad but after speaking to some of our customers, it is far worst in other areas of the country.

Let’s all hope that we can all get home safely later – and avoid the motorways at all costs as you don’t want to be stuck on them all evening if they grind to a halt.

I sometimes pop into work over the weekend, which I intend to do this weekend unless the snow is too bad, if so I will have to ty my best to be in work very early on Monday morning to catch up.

Old customer enquiry for plastic cards

We had a customer email us today with the following request for plastic cards.

I have a customer waiting for plastic full colour double sided business cards. The ones he has had done before is encapsulated with plastic with round corners. do you do trade prices? if so can you send me some prices for different qualities etc. they need them quite urgent

The customer just wants prices for now. Can I have a price for 250, 500 and 1000. We normally only do litho printing. Its an old customer from 5 years ago coming back to us with all there printing so I’m hoping to get the right prices for them. They own 3 restaurants so its quite a lot of work for us.

We are busy discussing options with the customer to find the best solution at the best price.

plastic cards special offer

Today we receive an unusual request. It was for just doing a plastic business cards design, and the request was from China.


We are interested in using your company to design our business cards. We would like frosted/semi transparent plastic card and using a gold stamp technique for the logo and maybe other parts. I have already got a printers ready to do this work. I live in China, so much easier for me to do it here. Please take a look at our website to get an idea of what we are about.

How long would the design take? When can you do? And how much please?


We replied with


Thanks you for your enquiry however we do not ship out of the UK.

Kind regards


Their reply was.


Please I am only looking for design work. No shipping required, only email adobe files.



Sorry we are a printing company, we offer basic design only to go with the cards we produce.

It sounds like you need a graphic design company not a printing company.

Kind regards
