Helping You Choose your Ideal Metal Card

We also offer a range of thicker cards that are more suitable for unique cards such as a bottle opener, launch event invitation card or for a custom-designed engineered design item. We are able to offer all our metal card finishes in stainless steel, brass (gold), and copper in these card thicknesses.

Our metal business cards and metal membership cards can be made into any size you require. The standard metal card sizes are:

  • 85mm x 54mm (3.3” x 2.2”) – credit card size
  • 89mm × 51mm (3.5” x 2.0”) 
- USA and Canada sized

Our 0.3mm/0.012″ card thickness is the recommended metal card thickness to use for business cards. It is distinctive and unique, yet light. If you choose a thicker card please bear in mind the additional weight you will endure to carry these cards around with you. Cards of 0.5mm (0.020″) or thicker are quite heavy and bulky, especially if you have ten or more in your wallet or purse. These are more suitable for metal member cards. Card weights are shown below:-

  • 0.3mm – 10.8 grams/0.38 ounces
  • 0.4mm – 11.9 grams/0.42 ounces
  • 0.5mm – 17.2 grams/0/61 ounces
  • 0.6mm – 17.7 grams/0.62 ounces
  • 0.8mm – 1.03 grams/0.94 ounces

Please note that weights are approximate as card design and cut thru elements can change the actual weight of the metal card.
