Carbon fiber is exactly what the name suggests extremely thin strong fibers. Our cards are made from genuine carbon fiber with a premium 3K-twill weave. Carbon fiber is most notably used to reinforce composite materials, particularly the class of materials known as carbon fiber or graphite-reinforced polymers. The material consists of extremely thin fibers ranging from 0.005mm-0.010mm (0.0002”-0.0004”) in diameter. To form the yarn thousands of carbon fibers are twisted together, like how a rope is formed. Its kind of is an engineer’s dream come true. A material that’s lighter than aluminum and is pound for pound stronger than steel.
Pure Metal Cards provides premium quality carbon fiber business cards in either a matt or gloss finish. Our images only show part of the unique qualities these cards possess. As you move the card in the light, the fibers in the fiber yarn show a unique 3D depth, which is only present with genuine carbon fiber. Our cards are constructed from real carbon fiber not imitation printed graphics or impressions in plastic.
Each card is ultra light at approximately 0.01 ounce (4.5 grams). Our 0.8mm (0.03″) thickness cards are rigid. Being carbon fiber, these cards take a lot of labor to manufacture. Cards are cut to size and shape using CNC machining then lacquered, so these exquisite cards take 2 weeks to manufacture.
Your cards are shipped in a premium quality high gloss black wood presentation case with a separate cardboard storage box. Each metal card is also individually wrapped in a transparent plastic sleeve.
We also offer these carbon fiber cards with a matt card finish.

Our carbon fiber cards are available in other card thicknesses. We offer 0.3mm/0.012”, 0.6mm/0.024 as well as 0.8mm/0.03″ cards thicknesses. The latter two cards are rigid, whereas 0.3mm is flexible. In addition, we can produce your card with a matt finish in addition to this gloss finish.
What is truly unique about these cards is the weave of the carbon fibers within the card. They create a ‘3D’ like effect when you move the card in your hand. To showcase your card we suggest you only use a single color for your artwork. Adding many colors detracts from the amazing effect of the carbon fiber itself.
We are not able to offer cut thru the card (die cut) with this card due to the properties of the weave.
Please note that we silkscreen print details to these cards. For member cards, the name or number may wear or rub off with constant use. A metal card is more suitable member cards.
