20pt vs 30pt - What's the difference?

Here's a quick video demonstration of a 20 pt clear-frosted card with full color CMYK print on 1 side only.

Here's a 30 pt clear card with gold foil stamp and white block that was printed full-color process on 2 sides to give it a pink tint.

"PT" commonly referred to as "points" = 1/1000 of an inch. So a 20pt plastic card would measure .020 inches.

But all that technical mumbo jumbo doesn't help us, does it? So think of it this way, a 30 pt plastic card would be most similar to one of the credit or debit cards in your wallet. A 20 point card, therefore would just be somewhat thinner than that.

Why is the print on my plastic card so light?

Plastic cards are made of translucent material. As light passes through them, the image printed in front appears lighter, softer, and muted. If you want more iridescent prints, our premium 30 pt frosted plastic cards should be an excellent alternative to our standard options. You can even add an extra layer of a white block to make the colors on your plastic card look more vivid. This white backer is added before printing ink so that the color of the designs can appear more solid on a clear card.

Why do all the plastic cards have 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.

What types of plastic do you print on?

Our premium plastic business cards are made of quality polypropylene. Available in a range of finishes and thickness, you can have your pick of durable plastic business cards to suit your brand. Polypropylene is 100% recyclable, so these cards are considered eco-friendly options.

In terms of thickness, our 30 PT cards feature the standard credit card size. These plastic cards are thick and sturdy, ideal for marketing and networking activities.

Here are the different finishes you can choose from:

  • Clear – completely transparent
  • Frosted – semi-transparent and slightly see-through
  • Opaque – solid white cards and not transparent at all

Keep in mind that your designs will vary in color, intensity, and effect based on the card finish you go for. When you decide on clear or frosted plastic cards, expect that the colors will be slightly lighter compared to other stocks. This is due to the plastic not the printing quality.

Our plastic cards can also have rounded corners to give a smoother touch. This comes at no extra charge.

We have the 20 PT plastic, which comes clear like glass. While we provide this thinner option, we usually recommend that clients get the thicker plastic cards. This is because the ink prints out so lightly that the details and colors fail to appear as vividly as on 30 PT plastic cards.

Some more design customizing options include spot UV coating, white ink, and PMS ink. Price will depend on your concept.

For foil stamping, we also have the 12 PT frosted plastic at a much more economical price point. You could choose among 15 colors for the foil stamping on your plastic cards.

What shapes and sizes do you offer for plastic business cards?

Our basic plastic business cards come in 4 shapes and sizes: The Standard, The Square, The Mini, and The Oval. For each option, you can choose between clear frosted translucent and white plastic. All our business cards are printed on the highest quality paper in full color.

Here are all your options:

  • The Standard: 2”x3.5”
  • The Square: 5”x2.5”
  • The Mini:5”3.5”
  • The Oval: 2”x3.5”

We also do foil stamping on thin plastic business cards. Your design will be printed in opaque hot foil on one side of the card. You have two options for this: Clear Frost + Foil and Solid White + Foil. Both cards have the same measurements: 2.125”x3.375”.

You can add unique finishes to your plastic business cards such as Spot UV, Foil, and PMS ink throughout Premium Plastic Builder.

If I order today, what is my delivery date?

Great question! Well, the specs you choose for your card play a significant role in how long it takes to produce your card. Our basic plastic products are produced in 5-7 business days and have a shipping time of 1-2 days.

If you are using our premium builder and choosing options like foil stamping or variable printing, your project could take up to 10-12 business days.

Either way, at the same time we send over your production proof, someone from our order processing team will give you an estimated delivery date for your order.

From there, you can decide if you need to expedite your shipping service in order to make a tight deadline.


How do I design for products printed on Plastic?

When you design plastic cards you must keep in mind that clear plastic cards and the frosted ones are transparent. Also, plastic cards with round corners do not have any extra charge!

The difference in the transparency can be seen above. The clear cards (on right) are transparent. The frosted cards (in center) are semi-transparent and it is difficult to see through them. The opaque white plastic cards (on left) are not transparent and solid white. Remember this while designing your plastic cards as it will affect the design that you print.

  • Printing on Frosted and Clear Plastic Cards will come out lighter than normal as compared to other stocks. This is because of the plastic itself not a production issue.
  • When you are setting up a rich black value, make sure to use C 60 M 40 Y 40 K 100 values. Never use all 100 as it causes problems and will not print dark on plastic.

It is important to remember than clear and frosted plastic card are transparent as there is not white ink in CMYK. The three designs shown above are the similar to the first picture. Notice that the white area in the clear cards (right) and the frosted cards (center) has zero ink and shows the transparent material it has been printed on. So, the clear and frosted cards white area show up with no ink on the printed piece. Also, remember that all colors printed on clear or frosted cards will be transparent as well.

For the clear plastic cards, there may be a small amount that might have light scratches. This issue comes from the manufacturer and is because of the material and handling. To help reimburse for this, we run overs of the clear plastic cards deliver the required quantity.

Clear plastic cards come with thin protective layer on one side that can easily be peeled off. This is to avoid the cards from scratching while packaging and shipping.

Can I print double sided on your plastic cards?

Yes — you can print double-sided on your plastic cards.

You can print on both sides of your 20 pt and 30 pt thick white plastic cards. You can also do the same on 30 pt clear or frosted plastic business cards. However, you can’t print double-sided on 20 pt clear or frosted cards.

Are plastic business cards waterproof?

Yes. Plastic business cards are on-trend right now, as they are more durable and unique-looking than traditional paper cards.

Typically made of flexible but tough PVC plastic, these business cards will look sharp even if you expose it to water, coffee, and other liquids. And it holds its shape even if it’s kept in a wallet.

When considering plastic business cards, you may want to choose high-gloss plastic. It makes your designs pop. Also, you’d want to print on both sides for an overall standout effect.

11 Good Design Principles Every Business Should Know

There's no substitute for good design. Even if your website offers the best services at the lowest prices, people aren't going to engage with your content if it isn't presented in a way that suits them.

It's essential. So, even if you don't have a background in design, you still need to know something about it when it comes to your business. Whether you're doing the web design yourself or hiring out a designer, at some point you have to make the final decision on what ends up on your site.

Look over the following principles to familiarize yourself with what good design looks like.

1. Functionality is Key

Before we can create an innovative and appealing product, we need to understand which things work and which do not.

We've all visited websites that have too many elements at work. We're trying to click on the contact page but we can't because the page is too bogged down with extra features to load or scroll. As we wait for the page to load, we're asked if we want to play "Snake" while the page gets ready to view.

This stuff is all unnecessary. Sure, it's nice when we have a lot of features that work in our favor but the purpose of a business website is to allow access to information and services.

If nothing else, make sure that the site is easy to use. Have clear site architecture that follows an order and allows users to find what they are looking for. A beautiful design will only work to your advantage if the building blocks of the site are in place.

2. Make Sure You're Consistent

Consistency here has two meanings. First, make sure that your site is consistent with the general form of most websites online. That doesn't mean you can't branch out, it just means that you need to have a site that people will be able to understand and use intuitively.

Trying to use a site that's arranged in a foreign way is like trying to read a foreign language-- there may be some similarities between English and Spanish, but it's a heck-of-a-lot easier to read in a language you're used to.

Try and keep the general template consistent with what users are used to seeing. You want their experience to be an intuitive one.

Second, you want the pages within your site to be consistent with one another. There are a lot of things that can vary within a website, and you want those things to remain cohesive throughout.

The first thing to look for is the consistency of your web elements. Things like your headers, sidebars, navigation bars, and footers should all remain in the same places. That way, people won't have a hitch in their steps when they're moving about the site.

Next, consider things like headings, fonts, images, and colors. Taking a critical look at any website reveals the fact that there are a number of places where font and color are slightly changed. Make sure that the font of a header on one page is the same on the next.

The same goes for colors in specific spots, as well as colors and logos.

3. Design How Your Customer Wants to Feel

People, often times, aren't buying a product because it is technically better than a different product. They may feel that their product is better, but usually, it's just an illusion of choice.

It's usually the way that the product is packaged, designed, and marketed that attracts specific audiences. The weird thing is, people feel differently when they use products that aren't really different at all. If you want to have a successful site, it requires that you have a decent understanding of your target audience and what they like.

This may require a little legwork before you conceptualize the site. Do a little research and find out what sites people in your demographic are using and enjoy frequenting. This could be done by an email poll, social media questionnaire, or other means.

Once you find those sites that your customers are using, look for consistencies among them and decipher what it is about those sites that people like. Maybe your customers want to feel adventurous, intelligent, part of a movement, or something else.

Maybe there's a specific font used among the websites that, for some reason, your demographic loves. You're selling your brand when you design the site, and it's essential that your brand falls in line with what your users want.

4. Cut out the Fat

If you take a look at an iPhone, or any modern phone for that matter, you'll see that it's smooth, with little if any bumps or ridges on it. That's the trend in design right now.

Simplicity is key, and the more direct you can be, the better. You can be creative and simple at the same time, so this doesn't mean that you can't have fun with your design. The key is to focus more on composition than additional features.

How is your site arranged? Could it be simpler? try to make it so.

5. Make it Clear What Your Product is

Your site should get directly to the point. Often times, people create a website without actually looking at their work from a wider perspective. Getting too pinhole-focused on what you're doing could prevent you from asking, "is this understandable to the user?"

The first thing that a user gathers from your site is your name, your service, and why you matter. This can all be summed up in the mission statement, but you can't just bank on people reading it.

Things like color and font also play a role in the user understanding your service. A car website that was loaded with pink colors and frilly fonts would come off as satirical or sarcastic. If not, it would seem unprofessional.

That's not a dig at the color pink, it's just an example to show you that people have associations with colors and fonts that aren't easy to change.

6. Use Color Wisely

Color has a real effect on our emotions and how we perceive things. A lot of research has been done to identify the various effects of color psychology and how it works.

Use color to your advantage by choosing a color scheme that gives off the accurate tone. If you want to do color right, research a little bit about color theory and how to apply different shades to convey different things.

There's a lot that the average person wouldn't think off, and you can use that new information to fine-tune your design.

7. Be Careful With Fonts

In the same way as color, variations in font give off distinctly different impressions.

Bakerville Old Face is seen as a font that expresses the reliability of a company. A sans serif font such as Helvetica, Calibri, or Arial is seen as clean. A script font like Bickham Script or Edwardian Script gives off an elegant or affectionate tone.

Brainstorm how you want your site to appear and take a little time to choose a font that reflects that.

8. Be Honest With Your Design

Think about a giant bag of chips that, when you open it, is only around three-fifths full. It's easy to talk a big game, especially when you're working online. Building up your image is necessary in a lot of cases, but that doesn't mean you should be dishonest about your product or services.

9. Make Sure That Everything Works

This goes without saying, but it's easy to forget. Go through each and every element of your site and make sure that it functions the way you want it to.

That means clicking all the links, using all of the scroll bars, making sure that links go where they're supposed to and that none of them are dead, and testing out your payment processing system to confirm that it's in good shape.

10. Keep Up With Changes

Have you ever come across a website that was clearly made a decade ago? Other than Craigslist, it's doubtful that many sites have luck with the vintage site design.

Make sure that you update the feel of your site any time you think that it's gotten a little out of date. You don't want to end up in the graveyard of old sites that people don't like to use.

11. Be as Interactive as Possible

Your site should allow your users to get in touch with you if they need to. Your ability to respond will depend on your staff and budget, but that won't change the need for your clients to get in touch with you.

A lot of sites have chat availability, and that's a great option for users. Whether you have forums to discuss on, chats for people to contact you, or a simple contact page, don't be a stranger to your customers.

Need a Good Design?

If you're using any sort of product to market your business, you'll want to find people who can give you good design for a variety of products.

You may also need business cards, t-shirts, and more. If you're looking for a team of people to help you design and print your products, we have everything you need.
