You will find cheaper cards on the internet but they will be low quality imports from China. However, you will probably not be aware of this, as companies who outsource production to China don't like to advertise that the cards are printed thousands of miles away and that they have no control over the manufacturing process and the quality will be ... well, as you would expect for a cheap import from China!

Benefits of Plastic Business Cards

plastic card example

At a networking event;

At a fund-raising gala where business owners and leaders are expected to congregate;

At a trade show;

At your local church, temple, mosque or synagogue;

….people are exchanging plastic business cards, not tapping their phones together.

The tradition of exchanging business cards continues even in the age of smartphones. If you want to make a first good impression and establish a connection, a business card is your go-to, even before you contact a potential client, customer, supplier or business partner on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter.

Plastic business cards offer a personal touch that electronic lists just cannot. They are a solid investment for any company, professional or business owner, serving as a physical reminder of having met someone in person rather than trying to understand them via a Google search.

All plastic business cards are not created equal. Some are more attractive and compelling than others. Their construction is one of the factors contributing to their quality and the perceived value of your business. Plastic business cards trump their paper counterparts in this regard, and have become the preferred choice of savvy businesses and professionals not just in the UK but across the world.

Durable Plastic Business Cards

Full colour plastic business cards are striking and never fails to create a strong impact. If you're looking for a vibrant and enticing loyalty, membership or gift card, going full-colour is an excellent option to explore. It can also work well if you're trying to drive conversations around your start-up, or work in a creative field or in the childcare/children's education industry. Plastic business cards with vivid colours or with with a humorous message or imaginative artwork can speak volumes about your own skills and image.

Differentiate your business and stand out from the competition with memorable full coloured plastic cards that resonate with people. The point of a business card is to make people remember you for a long time, if not permanently imprint you in their minds. With continued use and after recommending your business a few times, your brand will become unforgettable. Your business card deserves some credit for making you memorable!

As our plastic cards are printed in colour under the surface, the shades are rendered brightly and accurately. Leverage sharp graphics and bright colours to be seen 'first' when customers open their wallet.

Reasons to start looking at plastic business cards today

plastic card example

Visual quotient

A business card doesn't have to be 'all business'; designers and creatives are adding snippets of their work and even their Instagram feed on the back of their business cards. The modern business card isn't a calling card, it's a representation of your business and capabilities. It can be humorous, edgy or a piece of art in itself. Of course, it can also be strictly professional with only your name and contact information, but it must be elegant and appealing.

How do plastic business cards outperform paper cards on aesthetics? In two key ways, actually. Colours render extremely well on plastic. Compare a vibrantly coloured plastic card with a full-colour paper card and you'll instantly see the difference. A plastic business card is more visually stimulating and holds your attention longer.

The tactile appeal of plastic business cards cannot be replicated by paper. They are more substantial and smoother to touch, which enhances the experience of holding and handling them. If you're looking for something shiny and glamorous, a high gloss finish is ideal. For a refined and somber look, a luxury matte finish is the more suitable option.

More choices in artwork

example Continuing from the point above, a variety of artwork and design render well on plastic. A plastic medium allows room for versatility and creativity in a way not possible with a paper base. This is a unique advantage that enables our clients to specify exactly what they need and get it done beautifully!

We get a number of requests for optional extras such as embossing and for membership cards and loyalty cards, magnetic strips and signature strips are a part and parcel of the order requests. Plastic is best suited to these applications, and allow not only us to expand our range of offerings, but also enable you to create cards that serve dual purposes. Where there is a requirement for NFC cards embedded with NFC chips to trigger single-tap sharing of phone numbers, website links and social networking profiles to smart devices, plastic is the default material.

Make an unforgettable impression with plastic business cards and position yourself as a company/professional who stays ahead of the times. It starts here – go for it.

If you are after for a modern looking plastic business card you may want to choose a matt finish rather than a gloss. The cards just ooze sophistication when a matt finish is applied.

We are a leading UK company that has manufactured these stunning cards for many years and they continue to impress people time after time.

With our CMYK printing process we can print gradients, shading / halftones and very small fine/intricate detail easily. Large solid areas of print coverage are easily printable, which is not possible with some printing processes.

Small details always make the difference - For every business owner, being on the market means a fight. A fight to get the attention of customers. To make them loyal and for them to trust your services and products to such a degree that they will recommend your brand to others as well.
How do you achieve this? By being careful about your services and products, about your image and about what your clients have to say. The market is not what it used to be. Today, every little detail can make the difference between being successful and failing, because clients are pickier than ever.

Never settle for less and do not compromise the quality of what you provide, even when it comes to the business cards you offer to your clients. Yes, even something this small can draw the right type of attention, or not. Just like you wouldn't appear in front of the client wearing a T-shirt and sneakers because you care about your image, you should also care about the image of your brand and business. A clean office, a nice logo, and high-quality plastic business cards are details that show you care.
It is true that paper business cards can be cheaper, but you risk for clients to see you this way as well. Just think about what happens if your customer puts the business card in the pocket of a jacket and is caught by rain, or the jacket ends up in the washing machine. Yes, all the contact details mentioned on the business card will be unreadable. Thus, there are high risks for the customers not to get back at you, as they no longer have your contact details.

It is your reputation at stake, so offering quality products and services should be a priority. If you wish your clients to enjoy the best products and services, tailored to their needs and requirements, why would you offer them a paper business card? It comes in contradiction with your concept of providing quality to clients. Such a strategy will not bring you the desired results, if you want to impress issue a plastic business card.

It is true that the plastic business cards will cost you a little extra, but it is an investment you will make rarely. They are more durable and keep their great and appearance for a very long time without becoming dog-eared, even if they are subjected to water, moisture or are not kept in the best conditions. They can be personalised to reflect the image of your brand.
In case you want to find the best quality, service and prices on the market, when it comes to plastic business cards and find the best designs, you need to turn to a reliable partner for this. Again, it is a matter of preferring quality over quantity, a detail that will surely be noticed by everyone. Also, when you are managing a business, you want to be sure that its funds are spent wisely, not thrown out the window. This means putting your money in something durable, of high-quality and representative for your brand, without putting the budget in danger. If you don't think such a thing is possible, then you did have not spoken to the right person yet. Look in the right place and you will see that quality services are not necessarily expensive or rare.

So, are you ready to offer only the best there is to your clients? The plastic business cards should be a part of your brand. Don't be like the rest and choose to give something sub-standard, in a sign of appreciation, for everybody that is willing enough to trust your brand. Have in mind that the plastic cards you offer to someone, may be a great mean of marketing as well. Anyone in the entourage of the person bearing the card will want to know more about it, including who produced it. Everyone wishes to be a part of an exclusive group, where quality, reliability and appreciation is prime. Thus, do not lose the every opportunity to promote your brand and show your customers, including potential clients, that your services and products are worth it. With the high number of companies that strive to make it on the market, a well-chosen detail is more important than it ever was, having the power to put a brand on the top of preferences.

Low quality plastic cards.
beware of cheap, low quality plastic cards printed in China!

beware of cheap plastic cards

We only produce high quality plastic cards.
A customer who was shopping around on price once said to me:
"A plastic card is a plastic card, right?"
No I replied! As with everything in life you get what you pay for, high quality plastic cards do cost more than low quality plastic cards.

From feedback over the last year we have realised that a lot of companies are offering cheap full colour plastic cards that are imported from China.

Some of the problems are as follows:

Hard copy proofs (if available)
Are not printed on the same machine as the full order - what is the point in this?

Barcodes and sequential numbering are surface printed.
They look fine at first but after a couple of months of use they will rub, off causing administration nightmares!

Missed deadlines
As the cards are shipping in from China the lead times are excessive and the customer is not made aware of this when ordering (instead the customer is often lied to and believes the cards will arrive is 7 working days or less!). We have had customers re-order their plastic cards from us as they have been let down and have therefore paid twice for their plastic cards.

Poor quality
We have received feedback to say that the quality is very poor with the plastic cards having rough edges & major colour variations in the same batch of cards.

Finally, a picture speaks a thousand words;
Take a look at the photo below. Not only are the barcodes surface printed but the whole card has fallen apart! To be 100% clear we did not print these!
beware of low quality plastic cards

What we are trying to point out is that plastic cards are not the same, if you receive a cheap price for plastic cards then its cheap for a reason. I can not verify this personally but a reliable source tells me that the working conditions in these Chinese factories is appalling.

Please support UK manufacturing and ensure your cards are not produced in China. All our cards are manufactured in England.

If you have experienced any problems with cards produced in China please let us know we would love to include it on the list above.
