While metal business cards are distinctive in there own right, adding a splash of color can also make an impact. To match the right color we use the Pantone® color system. Our Pure Metal Cards in color will make you even more distinctive.
Pantone is the world’s leading authority on color and provides color systems for the accurate selection and use of color across a broad range of industries including fashion, paints and plastics. The PANTONE® name is known globally as the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer. We use the Pantone color code system to match your color to our cards. When you supply your artwork, please specify which Pantone color code you require for each color. We can then match these details on your digital proof as card. Please note however, when we silk print your color onto a metal business card or member card, the color may appear slightly duller than when used on paper or plastic.
