The Smart Choice: Go Bright With Metallic Colors

Metallic business cards make eye-catching conversation starters with their reflective ink. Attention-grabbing marketing pieces like metallic business cards help clients and customers easily recall the interaction you’ve had with them.

A Premium Product Offering

Metallic printing elevates your business cards to a whole new level. Printed on thick 16 pt. cardstock, metallic business cards can take quite a beating. They’re the furthest thing from flimsy.

The metallic finish can also be applied on one or both sides. Metallic business cards are available in different sizes with 3.5” x 2” being the most popular. Square business cards are also an option.

Spot UV Seals the Deal

Spot UV is a special coating applied to a specific area to add shine and texture. It blends well with metallic ink. Use spot UV to bring attention to business logos or product information.

Shine Bright, Shine Hard

Metallic business cards are best used for designs that feature lots of contrasting colors. Text tends to stand out more. And unlike foil stamping, metallic ink can work on most colors, even on color gradients.

It’s the right choice for graphic designers. Metallic business card printing gives them the chance to showcase their work.

Make Those Colors Pop

Metallic business card printing is not for the faint of heart. Metallic inks make colors bolder, making them ideal for businesses and professionals looking to make a statement.

Here are a few tips to make your metallic business cards effective:

  • Add Spot UV – With Spot UV, you can shift your customer’s focus to specific areas of your artwork like your logo and text. It adds extra shine and texture to make your cards stand out further.
  • Use Rounded Corners – Use rounded corners to literally take the edge off your cards. This makes them fit comfortably in your pocket and will less likely damage your wallet.
  • Choose Clashing Colors – To see the full effect of metallic inks, it’s best you use contrasting colors. Darker colors, while still noticeable, won’t stand out as much.
Have Fun With Text – Use bigger fonts. Metallic ink goes well with typography.
