Cards on transparent plastic
Transparent plastic cards and business cards are a modern and wonderful way to present your company to clients and partners who will make a vivid impression of you. Transparent plastic cards make it possible to achieve unique effects that are not possible with opaque plastic cards.
The following types of personalization are available on transparent cards:
- number printed;
- signature panel;
- barcode, QR code;
- magnetic stripe;
- embossing (depending on design).
The technology for making transparent cards is slightly different from ordinary plastic cards on white PVC. This requires a transparent sheet of PVC plastic with a thickness of 0.3 mm. The image is applied to one side of the sheet. After printing, the two sheets are aligned with each other, laminated on both sides and sintered together in a press laminator. A glossy transparent card can be obtained by sintering on glossy plates, a matte rough one can be obtained by sintering on matte plates. In most cases, transparent matte cards look preferable and are less prone to mechanical damage.
An important design and printing element for transparent plastic cards is the ability to use opaque white ink. This feature allows you to increase the contrast of the image, make parts of the maps transparent or not, depending on your wishes.
Clear plastic is, of course, slightly more expensive than regular white PVC and more difficult to print and process, but it’s worth it! The end effect will delight you very much!
