Plastic business cards are made from durable material that will outlast any standard business card. However, durability is only one of the major advantages of plastic business cards. They also stand out, are recognizable by touch, and make a solid favorable impression.
There are two basic varieties of plastic business cards: transparent and solid.
Transparent plastic business cards are made from lightweight plastic that can be clear or tinted one of a number of colors. Because these cards are transparent, they can only be printed on one side. While more basic than their solid cousins, they are perfect for many types of businesses. Transparent plastic business cards have square corners, like paper cards, and normally use one-color printing with minimal artwork. Because the cards are waterproof and won't get dirty, they are an excellent choice for scuba instructors, plumbers, automotive shops, house cleaning services, courier services, and all types of home businesses or services.
Solid plastic business cards have rounded corners and resemble credit cards. They can be printed on both sides in multicolor, photographic, high-resolution graphics. The diversity of this card surpasses that of the transparent variety, making solid plastic business cards a great value. Whenever clients or customers handle one of these cards, they are apt to be impressed all over again. Customers might also be less likely to throw away a plastic business card, as it seems to have more worth than a paper card.
