Absolutely! We are able to do a full color digital print option on all cards.

Is rush delivery or rush options available?

Unfortunately, rush options are not available. Metal business cards are very unique. Each card is designed differently, therefore production routing differs, with numerous orders in the pipeline we are not able to rush this unique process.

Product Type MetalPromo Product Resources 

What is the difference between plating & anodizing?

Electroplating is a process where we electro-chemically bond one metal onto the surface in place of another.

Stainless Steel & Aluminum Cards can be plated to become gold tone metal, gunmetal, rose gold, antique copper, or antique gold metal.

Anodizing is an electro-passivity process of creating a layer of metal on the surface of another through oxidation. These metallic layers can be any color, the anodize pools we currently have setup are black, white, red, blue, cyan, and coffee.

Why are metal cards more expensive than paper?

Likely the same reason your products or service are priced at a premium over your competition; you’re offering a premium product or experience. The average Joe has a paper card, metal is unique, it stands out, gets remembered.

The raw material price for stainless steel, aluminum, or carbon fiber are much higher than that of paper stock, but the styling capabilities, the 3D nature of photo etching, that’s what allows you create true pieces of art for your card and separate the cost of paper & metal.

Production MetalPromo Product Resources 

How are my cards made?

All cards start as sheet metal with a matte, brushed, or mirror finish. The individual cards and surface etching are created by a process called Photo Etching. The details of your design can be etched, cutout, screen printed, or laser engraved – That is the unique thing about metal cards, infinite possibilities of size, shape, design, and layout exist. The sky’s the limit!

How long will it take to receive my cards?

It varies. We’re not a print shop slapping ink on paper card stock. We’re creating unique art tailored to your brand. Due to the unique nature of metal business card designs, the production time can vary, based not just on your design but others currently in the pipeline. Standard production can be 5 days to 4 weeks.
