    Morning everyone,

    Im in the final stages of rebranding my design studio - I specialise in print design and branding. I want my business cards to be a bit different the just a printed bit of card - was thinking about semitransparent plastic, but would love to hear some other ideas. Must be funky but not expensive (on a bit of a tight budget) :thumb:

    I've looked at plastic business cards in the past (I'll see if I can dig out the concept)...

    That took some finding! lol

    I too was on a budget and in the end cost was the main reason I didn't go for them. I decided to get these printed instead..


    and to be honest, I get as many comments about what a nice card and how good it feels, as I'd have expected from my far more elaborate design.

    You could get some die-cut cards..

    Hey BigDave, what sort of print finish did you go with in the end??

    Thomas, what sort of price would i be looking at for die cut cards if I were to get them from Aubergine (ballpark)???

    thanks guys

    The cards I ended up going with were 400gsm, mat laminated from Stationery Direct.

    Another option is to buy a corner cutter. You can pick one up for about a tenner and I think you can get other shapes.
    We use one occasionaly for business cards and it saves a fair bit of money than if you'd got it done through a printer.
    It doesn't take too long to punch out a couple of hundred corners.

    Company Cards do a great range of plastic business cards including biodegradable options for the environmentally conscious!

    Never liked this idea as it seems a bit old hat. Most PCs or Macs have slots which one of these would get chewed up and lost in. Or even don't have CD slots at all now.
    A better option would be to supply a novelty branded USB stick with the info loaded on.
