The most common way to put information on a plastic card is via the hot stamp process. An engraved metal plate is heated and applied to the card, which is overlaid with dry ink. This process creates the familiar printing and logos seen on plastic cards or plastic membership cards. You even can order plastic business cards hot printed with an eye-catching metallic foil.
Most consumers have plastic cards or two in their wallets. Besides credit cards, there are plastic discount cards, plastic membership cards and other types of plastic cards that business owners offer to their customers.
