Choosing the card thickness for your metal business is equally as important as your choice of metal, card finish and the actual card design itself. When you hand out metal business cards you immediately make an impact. Owning a metal business card will make you the focus of attention. With the help of Pure Metal Cards, we can create a metal card that will make you unforgettable.


Business Card Thicknesses

Handing out a business card is often the very first impression someone will get of you or your business, so you need to get it right. To meet your needs, we offer a range of metal card thicknesses.

We offer a wide range of card thicknesses from 0.3mm to credit card thickness 0.8mm as shown below:

0.3mm – 0.012″, 0.4mm – 0.016″, 0.5mm – 0.020″, 0.6mm – 0.024″ and 0.8mm – 0.032″

Pure Metal Cards - card thickness summaryOur titanium cards are 0.8mm card thickness only.

The 0.3mm card thickness allows the most flexibility for your design if you require cut thru (die-cut) details. We usually recommend 0.5mm card thickness for luggage tags. The thicker 0.8mm (credit) card thickness is popular as a member 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. Metal card thickness offered include:-

1.0mm – 0.039″

1.5mm – 0.059″

2.0mm – 0.079″

Our carbon fiber cards are offered in three card thicknesses:

0.3mm – 0.012″ (flexible)

0.6mm – 0.024″ (rigid)

1.2mm – 0.047” (very rigid)

Consider the Card Weight

Our 0.3mm 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. Card weights per card 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

Note: weights are approximate as card design and cut thru elements can change the actual weight of the metal card.
