Metallic ink printing works by applying silver foil under regular ink, giving business cards in any color a metallic sheen.


Why Should You Print Metallic Business Cards?


If you’re looking to make a great first impression, metallic business cards are the perfect solution. An eye-catching design in shiny, metallic finish will put your brand in the spotlight and show potential customers you care about the details.

  • Metallic ink makes graphics stand out even more.
  • High-gloss UV coating adds life to any design.
  • Printed on 16 pt. cardstock that completes the premium look.
  • They make great conversation starters.
  • Metallic print business cards make it easier to connect at conventions, trade shows, and client meetings.

What Makes Spot UV Special?

This is a printing technique that involves varnishing specific areas or “spots” of your business cards with UV coating. Spot UV creates a distinctive look and adds depth to your design, among other benefits:

  • Areas coated with spot UV are instantly noticeable.
  • Spot UV highlights logos and other important details you want to emphasize.
  • It introduces texture and looks even better when it catches the light.

What’s the Most Popular Size?

Choose from up to eight (8) popular business card sizes. The size you choose should match your brand and overall design.

  • A popular and traditional business card is 2” x 3.5” in size
  • Go for a unique look with square business cards: 2” x 2” and 2.5” x 2.5”
  • Rounded corners are also available.
