For our hot foil printed plastic cards, each ink colour is printed individually, one colour at a time. For each colour that is printed (on each side) a magnesium printing block is required which is chemically etched with the relevant artwork for the ink colour. It is a very time consuming process but the end result is worth it!.

A block is always needed for each colour printed, no matter what the printing is. For example, if we printed a design with two different colours, metallic silver and metallic gold and just one character within the design is to be printed in metallic silver with the rest of the design to be printed in metallic gold, then a separate printing block is required for this single letter. Also a different printing block is required if a signature strip is to be printed.

Foiled Plastic Cards

A translucent plastic business card with a stunning floral design in the corner.

The translucent business cards are very popular with photography businesses, perhaps as they give a contemporary image associated with weddings and many photographers main income involve weddings.

This is a simple yet effective design utilising black and white foiled images for the photography business.

The semi transparent nature of the translucent plastic card helps to give it a contemporary image and they can be customised with different ink colours and different number of inks, we can print up to four inks.

Metallic Foiling

This photo does not do this foil printed translucent plastic business card justice, the metallic foiling in real life looks so much more dazzling.

Its hard to tell from the photo but it uses metallic gold, metallic silver, black and holoprint inks which given an absolutely amazing contrast of colours.

As three metallics are used close to each other it gives a wonderful effect, very blingy! Personally I am not usually impressed by thins kind of thing but I have to admit that this is in my top three designs ever!

If you like this design and would like to use it for your company, we can always use less inks e.g. just the holoprint and black to keep the costs down.

Holoprint Stamped Plastic Cards

This is a great design using holoprint for the text and logo and clear ink for the ovals in the background which are both hot foil stamped onto the card.

The clear ink, when printed on the translucent frosted plastic cards, gives a very subtle watermark effect whilst complimenting the design in front of it.

The use of the clear ink as a background effect is very popular, some times its little shapes like the ovals show here or occasionally a company logo.

Occasionally people ask for the text, such as contact details to be printed in the clear ink however we do not recommend this as it would be difficult to read, we recommend it is used for a subtle watermark effect.

We have also printed this very same design for him on the satin black plastic cards with metallic silver ink but he prefers the frosted.

A frosted translucent plastic card utilising a globe to show that works is under taken internationally in the close protection personal security industry.

This particular design is printed in one colour, with metallic silver foiling. This combinations gives a very modern and professional look.

We did consider printing the globe in a different ink colour such as black to give a contrast of colours but it was decided to keep the design sleek and simple by just using the one ink colour.

Clear Watermark Foiled Plastic Cards

A close up photo of the Tri-pod translucent plastic cards which is showing the clear ovals in detail.

We can print the ovals in the background in any colour but perhaps a bolder colour would interfere with the design too much. In this case the ovals are foiled using our clear foil which makes the parts it is printed on look less frosted.

The clear foil gives a nice subtle effect just like a watermark, adding some design detail without being over bearing the main design. The perfect balance?

The holoprint and clear foil work so well together.

A combination which should seriously be considered.

The satin black, translucent and metallic cards are all printed in the same way, using a relatively old fashioned printing method but giving wonderfully modern designs, particularly when metallic foils are used.

Foil Printed White Plastic Business Cards

A classy image and impact is given on this white plastic base, which is foil printed with one ink, holoprint, what a great look.

This photo really highlights the bands of colour in the holoprint ink, its very hard to capture in a photo. To see them in real life is best.

These are solid plastic all the way through (not cheap imitations with card or paper in the middle here i'm pleased to say).

The ink is printed on the surface using heat and pressure to apply it.

Foil Printing on White Plastic Cards

A sea of white plastic all foil printed with the very same design in two colours, holoprint and black.

These two inks give a good distinction between the plain non metallic black and the shiny metallic holoprint. I don't think there are two ink colours which work better together.

Two very distinct inks which provide a diverse eye catching design.

This combination of inks also works very well on the translucent and satin black range.

The non metallic blue design also helps to highlight the impact the non metallic inks can have.

We have other non metallic inks available in addition to the blue and red mentioned above.
