Frequently asked questions
What are your plastic cards made from?
All of our cards are made from full PVC plastic – not encapsulated cardboard. All our cards also come with rounded corners as standard.
What does ‘micron’ mean?
The micron of a plastic card is the thickness of the PVC used. A typical bank card is 760micron – which is the industry standard for plastic cards. We also offer 600 and 450 micron plastic cards as for larger volumes or freebie promotional cards this helps reduce the units cost for our customers.

We advise customers of a 10 – 14 working day turn around under our standard service, or 3 – 5 working days with our express service. These are guides and we do endeavour to dispatch all orders as quickly as possible.
Can I see an actual plastic card sample with my design?
We do offer a Hard Copy proof if required. This service is chargeable at £30 and typically takes between 5 – 7 working days. Its worth noting that our Hard Copy proofs are digitally printed and as such there maybe be slight colour variation between the Hard Copy proof and your final print run.
