Frosted Plastic Cards

If you’re looking for a contemporary and luxurious card that stands out from the rest, than look no further! A frosted plastic card will give your business that unique and professional edge to make you stand out from the crowd. Frosted cards have a slight texture applied to the plastic making them not only look good, but also feel great!

Frosted Plastic cards have a unique translucent property which allows diffused light to pass through the material. The semi transparent medium allows for contrast between printed areas and frosted card sections. This is ideal for enhancing different areas of the card.

Our frosted plastic business cards are extremely durable, waterproof and tear proof. Frosted plastic cards are suitable to use for a wide range of uses including business cards, club membership cards, gift cards, VIP cards, discount cards, loyalty cards, tags and staff ID cards.

The 0.76mm plastic cards are sturdy and similar to a credit card thickness.  (Please note: credit cards containing a chip are 0.84mm thick)

IMPORTANT: Due to the characteristics of clear frosted plastic, fine scratches and imperfections are more visible on the surface of this material. If you think this may be an issue, please consider our standard plastic business cards as fine scratches are less noticeable on this material.

CMYK Colour Mode

Setup your artwork and graphics in CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colour mode. This will ensure that you avoid any unexpected colour changes. Please convert any RGB or SPOT images to CMYK before supplying your file.

Default Black

The Right Blacks

Black: C0%, M0%, Y0%, B100%
BACKGROUNDS (larger 30mm area)
Rich Black: C30%, M20%, Y20%, B100%
Rich Blue Black: C40%, M0%, Y0%, B100%
Refrain from using this black in any artwork as it may result in drying and/or scuffing issues.


All files must be supplied at a minimum of 300dpi (dots per inch) at full size. Images such as photos which appear in your artwork must also have a minimum resolution of 300dpi. Images that have a lower resolution may result in a pixilated or fuzzy finish. REMEMBER – images taken from the Internet are only 72dpi and are not suitable for print.

Outline or Embed Fonts

Outline or Embed Fonts

Make sure that all fonts are outlined or embedded within your file. This means that we can print your file even if we don’t have your fonts installed on our computers. This will reduce the possibilities of fonts not displaying as they should and not being printed the way you had proposed.

IMPORTANT: DO YOU REQUIRE WHITE INK? Remember, any white areas within your artwork will appear clear/translucent due to the nature of the frosted plastic card base. If you require white ink to be printed on your card, please don’t forget to select this option when placing your order and indicate the white ink areas.
