Laminated Business Cards from Cheap as Prints

Laminated business cards printed on 450gsm silk stock exude an air of sophistication and durability, making them an ideal choice for professionals looking to make a lasting impression. The choice between gloss, matt, or soft-touch lamination offers versatility to cater to various preferences and branding needs.

Gloss lamination adds a reflective sheen, enhancing colours and lending a vibrant finish that is perfect for designs with bold graphics or photographs. In contrast, matt lamination provides a subtle, elegant texture, reducing glare and offering a smooth writable surface that is ideal for minimalist designs or those aiming for a sophisticated aesthetic. Soft-touch lamination, with its velvety texture, offers a tactile experience that elevates the tactile appeal of the card, making it stand out in a sea of traditional options.

Whether you’re aiming for a classic, modern, or luxurious vibe, laminated business cards printed on 450gsm silk stock deliver durability, style, and professionalism in every exchange. For a captivating blend of visual and tactile elements, our Spot UV business cards offer a captivating alternative. These cards feature specific areas with a clear, gloss coating, cured using ultraviolet light, creating a raised, shiny, and textured finish that contrasts with the matt surface of the rest of the card.

FAQ's

  • What does "450gsm" mean?

    “450gsm” refers to the weight and thickness of the paper used to make the business cards. GSM stands for grams per square meter, indicating the weight of the paper. In this case, 450gsm means the paper weighs 450 grams per square meter, indicating a thick and durable cardstock.

  • What are the advantages of choosing 450gsm silk business cards?

    450gsm silk business cards offer several advantages. The heavy cardstock provides durability and a premium feel, while the silk finish enhances the appearance with its smooth texture and matt appearance. Silk business cards are resistant to fingerprints and smudges, maintaining a professional look even with frequent handling.

  • Can I write on 450gsm silk business cards?

    Yes, 450gsm silk-coated cards can generally be written on with a pen, although the smooth surface might require a pen with quick-drying ink to prevent smudging.

  • Can I print my business card design on the 450gsm silk stock without lamination?

    Absolutely! The 450gsm silk stock is coated and smooth to the touch. Without lamination, your print will retain its original natural texture and be cheaper to buy.

  • What are matt laminated business cards?

    Matt laminated business cards are ideal for softer-themed designs. The laminated film removes any natural shine to give the final product a smooth and subtle finish. Ideal where reflective light may cause difficulty to see the design. Additionally, the matt laminated finish creates muted colours as it produces a lower contrast on darker shades.

  • What are gloss laminated business cards?

    Gloss laminated business cards are recommended for colourful designs. The lamination film produces a shiny appearance similar to what is seen on the cover of a magazine or catalogue. As natural light bounces of the gloss laminated surface, colours appear brighter and more reflective.

  • What are soft-touch laminated business cards?

    Soft-touch laminated business cards will feel like peach skin. The velvety smooth protective film is similar to what is found on premium books and expensive novels. Like regular matt lamination, there is no zero-shine and colours can also appear richer.

  • Suitable for minimalist design themes
  • Ideal for products desiring a clean, sharp appearance
Rounded Corners

Round corner finishing involves trimming the sharp corners of printed materials to create a smooth, curved edge. By softening the edges, it enhances durability, making the print less prone to damage and wear. This finishing technique compliments modern and minimalist designs by adding a touch of sophistication.

  • Creates smooth curved edges
  • Enhances durability, reducing damage and wear
  • Compliments modern and creative designs

Lamination

No Lamination

Printed graphics without lamination will retain its original texture, which can create a unique aesthetic appeal. However, the print will be more susceptible to wear and tear, as it will have no protective layer provided by lamination. Over time, the lack of lamination may result in fading, smudging and decreased durability. While the absence of lamination allows for a distinct tactile experience with an initial cost saving, it’s essential to consider the trade-off in terms of longevity and resilience.

  • Without lamination the print retains its original texture and cheaper to buy
  • Lamination provides a protective layer that enhances durability
  • The various lamination films can enhance the look and feel of the print
Matt Lamination

Matt lamination provides a non-reflective finish with zero shine. It adds a smooth texture to the surface while preserving the integrity of the print without any colour loss. This process enhances both the tactile and visual appeal of the printed material, offering a sophisticated and durable result.
