A small order for 100 clear plastic cards was placed on the 26th May, it just had one colour to the front and was quite a simple yet effective design.
We dispatched the order on the 2nd June which is 5 working days. The customer was very pleased that the cards arrived earlier than expected & sent us a lovely email saying:
“The cards arrived this morning
Thank you so much – they’re absolutely great! Speedy delivery too. I will be recommending CPCards!”
The customer originally wanted the cards for the 4th June and we advised that this may be a little tight which in the end we got the cards to the customer a day early.
Today we have updated our full colour plastic card page see here.
The new page now has several sub pages. We hope the new pages are easier on the eye and hope customers like them and find it easier to navigate.
If you experience any problems, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
A repeat customer contacted us recently as they have changed there company name and required new plastic business cards.
We based the design of there new cards on there past design as they were very pleased with this. The customer requested that additional logos be added and this was actioned for them.
The customer was in a little bit of a rush for the cards as the new company name was already in use and they needed the business cards to go with the new name.
We received a lovely email from the customer after they had received the order”
“Thanks for the cards, first day back in work today, so I hadn’t seen them, good job as always!”
I may have mentioned before that we are always grateful for any comments 🙂
We have a customer who ordered 250 x 420 micron full colour solid plastic cards with no optional extras and a matt finish. Unfortunately the first postal proof was no quite right for the customer as the colours needed adjusting. New artwork was submitted and we produced the 2nd postal proof. This was fine for the customer and we produced the full order. The customer sent us a nice email:
“Wow, now that’s what I call fast service! Cards are here and spot on too. I wasn’t expecting them until well, next week really.
Great stuff! I’m definitely one very satisfied customer! Thanks”
As always we appreciate any feedback. Bye for now.
For our full colour plastic cards, we offer a bureau personalisation service.
This service enables customers to have plastic cards personalised with customers/members details as and when required.
So, for example, a golf club could order 1,000 plastic membership cards. We would hold the plastic cards in stock for them once they have been printed. Then maybe once a week, the customer will email an excel document to us which contains the details to be printed on the cards of the new members, for example:
– The members name
– The type of membership, full, junior etc.
– The members membership number
– The expiry date.
Once we have received the customers excel file, we will overprint the personalised details onto the cards and dispatch them within 3 working days.
This service is also useful if a member loses their card, their details can be submitted to us as normal when new cards are ordered.
When you order your plastic business cards from us, you can rest assured that you will receive 1st class service and high quality plastic cards.
We have a no nonsense, honest approach to all customers, we wont lie to you about what deadline we can achieve to win your order. If we are unable to meet your deadline, we will tell you this, even if it means we don’t get your order. Unfortunately, this often results in potential customers placing their order elsewhere, with a company that will tell you what you want to hear (just to get you money) only to leave you disappointed when they fail to deliver on time.
Remember, A promise means nothing – until it is delivered!
Just received a nice email from a customer regarding an order which was placed for the full colour solid plastic cards and though I would share it with you:
“This email is to confirm that my order has been received & everything is 100% correct as i requested, quantity & accurate .
We do thank you for the services you have provided we are very happy for that and we look forward to do business with you.”
Thanks for your kind comments, they are most welcome 🙂
Bye for now.
I am sure you are aware of our bureau personlisation service by now. Just in case you are not this service is where we print the base card/design and hold them in our bureau office for you to call off with new membership details when you require them. For more information please take a look at the new webpages here
Well, I just wanted to let you know that the webpages for this service have been updated.
We hope that you find them a lot easier to navigate and understand now.
However if you feel anything is not clear or if you just have a general enquiry regarding the bureau personalization service just let us know.
The bureau personalisation service really is a great way to ensure you members feel valued and appreciated.
Bye for now
Recently a few people who work here have been looking to move house and have released what a nightmare the selling process now is.
The Home Information Pack is a little confusing when you first look into it, page and pages of confusing questions!
We have suggested to our estate agents that they should introduce plastic cards with a quick reference guide to help explain what is necessary from the seller.
Also of our existing customer use plastic cards s quick reference guides and hand them out during training events. This is a great idea as they are durable to can be refereed to again and again.
I hope estate agents look in to offering our plastic cards to help people who are new to selling houses.
It’s been a slow week this week, I guess the bank holidays don’t help as a lot of people take holidays around this time of the year.
It was quite upsetting today that we lost a plastic card order to one of our competitors. We had various communications with this customer and we were really quite upset to loose the order. We lost the order on price and unfortunately the customer did not come back to us to see if we could price match. Looking at the costing for this order unfortunately we would not have been able to match the price of this other company who outsources production to China and hence has very low labour rates.
We have considered in the past outsourcing to countries with low labour rates but for a couple of reasons decided not to. Namely, out of loyalty to the UK and lack of control over quality. If all companies had the same loyalty perhaps the economy would be in a slightly better state today. I plead with you all, find out where the products you purchase are produced, lets support this country and hopefully less people will lose there homes and jobs.
We did warn this particular customer to be careful in relation to any optional extras they require. This other company does not offer postal proofs which means any optional extras such as barcodes or magnetic strips can not be tested with scanning machinery before the order is printed. You would be surprised how many customers come back to us after receiving there postal proof needing to make an amendment (for example they realise a HICO magnetic strip is needed instead of a LOCO magnetic strip or the barcode needs a prefix to be recognized by the scanner).
Bye for now & remember if you support UK businesses it also supports you by ensuing the money you spend stays in the UK
