A metal business card sets you apart from the crowd. It ensures that any introduction with you will be a singular moment guaranteed to be remembered.

Will they fit in a standard business card holder?

As a rule there’s no reason why metal cards should not fit into your existing business card holder however please note that due to their thickness it’s likely you’ll be able to carry around less of them.

Can you print in color on my card?

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.

What additional options can I request for my design?

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.

Can I use any foreign characters?

Most characters on international keyboards will work, but we cannot guarantee every instance. Please pay careful attention to the proofs we will send to you to ensure all lettering and characters are correct.

What is included with Membership cards?

We can add a number of different options with your membership cards including individual names, sequential numbering and bar code strips to name but a few. Before ordering we recommend you contact us at info@puremetalcards.com to discuss your needs.
