Silk business cards are one of our newer product offerings. These business cards are notable for their silky smooth feel as well as their durability. They have a modern look to them that makes them popular within the tech community. A good way to describe a silk business card would be to imagine a business card that is wrapped in a soft plastic. That description also happens to be an accurate depiction of their actual composition.
Some key benefits of silk business cards is their durability and unique feel. On the topic of durability, these business cards are nearly water resistant. The plastic lamination helps protect them from perspiration and prevents the ink underneath from running. They are also very resistant to tearing, which can easily happen to less sturdy business cards. As for the unique feel, there really isn’t anything else quite like it. As a matter of fact, silk business cards feel more like plastic than paper.
As mentioned earlier, there are things that you should consider when ordering silk business cards. First, you cannot have raised ink or embossing with them. Secondly, they require longer than average production times. So if you’re in a hurry, these cards may not be the best fit. Lastly, due to the nature of their look and feel, silk business cards might not be the best fit for traditional business card layouts/designs.
To produce these business cards, we start by printing on regular heavyweight business card stock in our NYC plant. When we complete the printing, we will hold off on cutting them into business card sized pieces. Instead, we send them to a laminator who applies a layer of plastic to both sides of the sheets. After the silk laminate material has been applied, we then cut the sheets down to business cards. This production technique requires a decent amount of handling and care. As a result, there is a somewhat long production time, averaging about a week. Fortunately, the business cards are worth the wait.
Silk business cards are part of our premium line. We start by printing the business card in full color and then we laminate it on both sides with a silky film which produces a premium smooth and luxurious feel.

Silk laminated business cards are available in white and off-white. If you are looking for a different color, we can print the paper with it and paint the edges with this same color. This will create the effect of the paper being the color of your preference.

Silk laminated business cards have become one of the most sought out high end premium business cards. The reason for this is their high quality feel and their affordable cost. Our premium silk paper enjoys a rich matte look and a smooth texture like no other. Silk laminated business cards are also more durable. Another advantage of these cards is the ability to add special finishes as this paper allows for multiple printing effects.
The main difference between silk and dull/matte business cards is the paper. Dull/matte cards are plain paper, while silk business cards are first printed in premium paper and then silk laminated.
