Pearlescent Business Cards from Cheap as Prints

Pearlescent business cards feature a special coating designed to create a shimmering or iridescent effect. The pearlescent finish gives the card a subtle, shifting colour effect, similar to the way light plays on the surface of a pearl. It can create a range of colours and visual effects depending on the angle and lighting conditions. These cards are known for their unique and eye-catching appearance and are a popular choice for businesses and professionals looking to make a memorable impression.

To make the most of pearlescent business cards, consider using designs that complement the iridescent finish. Minimalistic and refined designs are often ideal, allowing the shiny elements to stand out without overshadowing the card’s elegance.

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.

  • 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.
