Our Luxury prints are very beautiful. Up to ten features can be applied to create an absolutely stunning card.
Silk lamination is a popular feature for printing. It has an elegant and unique texture. We start with a classic card printed in full color, then we laminate both sides with silk which gives off its special ‘smooth as silk’ feel.
We laminate both sides with a 1.5mil scuff resistant, soft suede laminate. These creamy, soft-touch cards are sure to be attention grabbing, while remaining strong and durable. We absolutely love these cards and we know that you will too.
Edge paint is an ideal way to either add a fun pop of color to your design, or to hide the white edges of your cards. This feature is applied by rolling ink onto the outer edges of the cardstock.
Foil stamping uses a heated plate to apply metallic foil or pigment to the surface of the card. The result is a vibrant and highly saturated metallic appearance. Although this feature cannot be color matched, we offer a wide variety of colors including; Regular Gold, Regular Silver, Matte Gold, Matte Silver, White, Black, Red, Copper, Rose Gold, Dark Blue, Light Blue, Green, Non-metallic green, Clear, Pearl, Hot Pink, Rose Pink, and even Rainbow.
Embossing is a unique process that uses plates and pressure to create a raised detail on one side of a business card and a reversed detail on the other. This feature pushes through the paper to create a feature that is visible from 360 degrees. Embossing creates a reversed deboss of the image on the opposite side of the card. Embossing can be combined with foil stamping, ink or can be “blind” meaning that no further feature is used on top of the emboss.
For a business card that conveys your creative side, choose customizable, rounded corners to add unique, eye-catching shapes. Rounded corners provide a sleek, modern aesthetic, with a classy and professional look. Rounded corners also prevent the worn-down look many cards get with heavy use, prolonging the newer appearance of the card.
Spot UV is a glossy finish that can be added to specific details of a card for example, a logo or a company name. This feature can only be applied to our Silk laminated, our 2 sided spot UV, and our regular suede stock. This feature creates a beautiful reflective shine that can be used to accent details whether they are fine or large.
Die-cutting is a process used to cut paper into a specific shape using a steel cutting die. It can be used to punch out a decorative shape or pattern to incorporate within a larger piece, or it can be used to create the main shape of an object by cutting the entire sheet of paper in an distinct/designed way.
This feature is in available in silver and gold and is ideal for printing text or designs onto our premium cards. Metallic Ink is a form of high-end metallic printing. This feature adds a beautiful semi-reflective sheen and is available in gold or silver. This ink can be used on any of our premium or luxury paper stocks and can be layered under foil stamping or thermography. The benefit of metallic ink is that since it is printed, and not stamped, it can accurately replicate more detail than foil stamping.
Setting up your print files can be very simple. However, we still advise you to please use our print templates. Using our templates will assure that the files are set up correctly. This will avoid any delays in the design/printing process.
Edge cracking is common on business cards when the card has a high value of ink such as dark colors. This typically happens because of the finish used as well as the colors used in the document. This is NOT caused by a dull blade. To avoid this problem, we advise that you use lighter colors! Another alternative is proceeding with a Silk Laminated Business Card. We will not reprint any order that contains edge cracking as this is a natural process when using a Finish versus a Laminate.
