Metal Business Cards

Of all possible materials, metal might seem like the most unlikely candidate to make business cards with. Believe it or not, it is possible and we can do it. We can print business cards using a few different types of metal. Some metals include stainless steel, copper, and brass. Each metal finish has its own unique properties and color. To make a statement with your business cards, metal is sure to bring up conversation.

The first and most popular metal that we print on is stainless steel. These business cards use high-grade steel which ensures consistent color and finish. They are dull silver in color, with a slight grain. These metal business cards are also very thick, being roughly the equivalent of #165lb cover stock. This thickness is important because metal has the potential to bend and dent, which permanently damages the business card. Due to their thickness, our metal business cards can withstand a high level of wear and tear which helps them stay presentable when stored in your wallet or purse.

Our next material is copper. We are proud to use real copper as an optional material with our metal business cards. One of the most appealing features of our copper finish is that it has a very natural looking brush grain to it. This is a feature that makes them unique among the various types of metal business cards. Copper business cards also offer a slightly lower profile look, which can be useful for those who want metal business cards without the boldness of stainless steel or brass. These cards also feel the most untreated of the 3 metals that we offer.

The last metal business card finish that we offer is brass. Brass benefits from its appearance, which is the closest to gold of our possible materials. Gold is a common request for metal business cards and as a result, brass receives its share of attention. Brass business cards have a finish that is smooth but not lacquered. They are very substantial and sturdy. We print on the equivalent of #165lb cover stock, which makes these metal business cards feel very impressive. They are resistant to denting and bending due to their sturdy construction.

We offer other finishing options on our business cards. Some of these finishing options include die-cutting and etching. Die-cutting is a process by which shapes and patterns are cut out of the business card. This is very difficult to do, especially with metals, but the results are worth the effort. Some metal business cards with perforations and patterns can really turn heads. Another finish that we can do is surface etching. This type of finishing work results in business cards that have a letterpress-like pattern engraved into the metal.

We are fortunate to be able to produce metal business cards here in NYC. It is difficult to find suppliers for this type of work regardless of where you look. The fact that we can do this type of work locally in NYC means a lot to our customers. If you have any questions or concerns, we welcome you to stop by our NYC office for a free consultation on your business card needs.
