Absolutely! Your cards can be printed in full color just like a paper card. Note that due to the color of the metal itself results will vary from printing on a white paper surface. However, cards look much better without color as cutting or etching into the metal really makes a stronger impression.
Unlike paper cards metal cards can be etched and cut through. Many of the best designs we have seen are achieved utilizing only these two manufacturing techniques.
