    Any notes for our designers?

Clear business cards are just the coolest thing ever!

When you hand your prospect a semi-translucent clear frosted plastic business cards, you set yourself up for a successful relationship right from the start. The substantial feel of the 20pt clear PVC, coupled with the modern design aesthetic of using clear or frosted PVC gives your customers the impression that you have high standards, and therefore must offer a quality product or service.

Free Round Corners

Because our 20 pt PVC is so tough, we offer complementary rounded corners for these business cards to ensure that neither you nor your customers injure themselves while handling the clear cards. Your choice of 1/8in or 1/4in corner radius, at no additional cost.

Although we don’t offer clear cards with magnet strips, many of our customers use our opaque white PVC business cards for general membership cards. By leaving a blank space on the back of your card design, you are able to write a customer’s name using a permanent marker or sharpie. For example, if you owned a used record store, you might offer a “loyal customer program” or membership for a one-time annual fee that gives them 10% off every order when they show their super cool plastic members-only card.

Another interesting application is to use our clear cards as hang tags. For many t-shirt brands and start-up clothing companies, clear tags are an easy way to give your apparel a visual edge. Although not included in the pricing displayed here, we do offer the hole drilling service that easily turns your clear cards into super groovy hang tags.


Our most basic print products will complete production in 2-4 days.

Typically, ship time from our hub in Texas to an address in the USA takes 1-3 days.

In the best-case scenario, you will receive your prints in 3 days, worst-case, 7 days.


Most people come to us for our special finishing features and the ability to combine them with premium and custom paper stocks.

All custom orders have a turnaround time of 10-12 business days.

If you live in New York, transit time from our hub in Texas will likely be 3 days with ground service, so you would receive your prints 15 days from the time you have paid your invoice and approved your proof

FontSize_image-01

Special Finish Guidelines

If your project includes foil stampingspot UV, embossing, or die cutting you will need to provide a mask file (per finish) alongside your design files.

  1. Create a black and white pdf file where all black areas have a color value of K = 100%  (C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=100)
  2. Black areas represent where you want the finish to be located and white means no finish will be applied.
  3. If your project contains more than one finish, you must provide separate mask files for each finish.

Here at Print Peppermint, we consider ourselves lucky that we are exposed to so many creative clear business card designs every single day. If you’ve decided to print on clear PVC for your next business card project, you’ve made a wise choice but there are some things you should know.

Here are a few recommendations that will help make sure your next clear business card turns out amazing:

1. Order a pack of our Business Card Samples

Our business card sample pack includes 20+ samples of our most creative business cards. It also includes some helpful tools for designers like the CMYK Color Reference Plastic Card (see #2).

2. Use dark colors in your clear business card design

In our business card sample pack you will find a 20 pt clear frosted PVC card with some optimized CMYK color values printed on it. This tool was designed to show you what the actual ink color will look like after printing because it is hard to get an accurate impression of color saturation on a semi-transparent medium when designing on a lighted screen.

3. Use lots of negative (blank) space

My favorite part about clear plastic business cards is the simple beauty of the clear frosted PVC. I tend to like minimalist business card designs in general but especially on frosted plastic. What I mean by that is try to make sure you leave lots of blank space or white space in your design and don’t fill the whole canvas with color.

4. If you want it Solid… Use Foil

Although not available on our standard clear card product, foil stamping is available on our 30 pt clear plastic business cards and our 30 pt white plastic business cards.

Whether you choose our 20 pt or 30 pt clear PVC cards, any ink printed areas will have some measure of transparency. This means when the card is laying flat on a white piece of paper the colors really pop but when you hold it up in the air and light penetrates from behind, the image can become very faint.

For this reason, we recommend using a hot foil stamp because the foil is a 100% solid opaque sheet that will provide a full contrast against the translucent PVC.

5. Registration isn’t perfect ?

If you choose to enhance your premium clear business card with special finishes such as foil stamping, spot gloss uv, or white ink (blocker) you need to know from the start things are not going to line up perfectly.

For example (as shown right) if you wish to add a white backer to your PVC card and then print full bleed on top of the white area you may notice a white border, in other words, the ink may not go all the way to the edge of the white blocked area.

If you choose to add spot UV to your clear card you need to know that the spot UV application can shift up to 1/16 ” in any direction from card to card. It is for this reason that we recommend using spot UV on larger elements and not on small text.

    Ordered 250qty, 20pt Soft Touch Business cards. Followed their advice, but black is still muted in my opinion. The feeling of them is akin to what other companies call (Silk) business cards. Nice and smooth, and fingerprints don’t stay on the card.

    Otherwise, the print registration is very clean (I used VECTOR graphics), the CMYK gold lines look accurate, Spot Gloss looks great and is very tight on almost all cards. The picture doesn’t represent the spot gloss at all, but I can assure you, it does it’s job.

    Please understand that some of your cards will NOT be perfect, it’s just part of the process. Cut lines, spot gloss registration, etc… can be off a bit on some cards. ALWAYS order a bit extra than you need so you can cherry pick the best ones and discard the rest. It’s a necessary evil.

    BUT I accidentally uploaded and authorized the WRONG files so I can’t use them. I was going to use them as backers for enamel pins. BUT I don’t know what their Spot Gloss looks like with no print behind it. I’m an idiot. Very expensive mistake. Especially when you consider, even IF they were all correct, you still have to discard some that aren’t perfectly printed and cut evenly.

    My advice to noob customers, DON’T ORDER WHEN YOU’RE EXHAUSTED!!! Have someone double check your work before you send stuff out.

12-20-30-pt-plastic-business-card-thickness-comparison

Wondering how thick are our plastic business cards? Well, here is a little reference. A typical credit card is 30pt or 30 mil and our standard plastic stock is 20 pt.

So the answer is: beefier than our standard 16 pt cover stock but not quite as dense as a credit card. Want 30 mil plastic cards? Send us an email for pricing and more information.

The 20pt cards come in 2" x 3.5" and credit card size 2.125" x 3.375" and the 30pt version only in credit card size.

Why mandatory rounded corners?

Most, if not all, business cards have rounded corners. That’s because sharp pointy edges can potentially result in skin punctures and other injuries that are more severe than paper cuts. Since many of us like to keep our business cards close at hand, we always recommend softening the sharp corners of your plastic cards. It’s safer this way.

In addition, corner rounding gives your cards a more finished and professional look. You can also expect your cards to last longer with rounded corners as these soft edges prevent the plastic from cracking or splitting apart.

Plastic Membership Cards

Choose our 30 mil PVC plastic business cards and optionally add a magnetic strip to your cards. We offer cards with magnetic strip only or magnetic strip + encoding. If our PVC plastic cards are outside of your budget many of our customers use our 20 pt opaque white plastic business cards for general membership cards.
