Clear Plastic Cards
Frosted Cards (CLR001)
Clearly The Right Choice
Look to our clear plastic cards or frosted cards when you're looking for the "wow factor" that will support your brand or design. CardPrinting.com is the “clear” choice for your business image when you want to present it with quality, flair and imagination.
Clear plastic cards printed by CardPrinting.com are superior "gift card quality" plastic cards. They are a four-layer laminate clear card. Many competitors offer a single-layer card whose surface printing tends to scuff or wear off over time.
Our clear and frosted cards are printed on a dual core and then laminated on the front and back of that core. This “sandwich” is then treated with high heat and pressure for a long period of time. After this process, they are permanently adhered and will never separate. What is important is that the printing is under the clear protective layer won't scuff off.
We don’t want you to go wrong when it comes to your branding. Designing for clear card printing is a different process than designing for opaque materials. Our free Art Evaluation Service is something you can lean on. Our art staff will take a look at the artwork you submit and let you know if it "works" or if there are issues with it.

Can I print on both sides of a clear card?
Yes! Both sides can be printed on a clear card. Of course, you’ll see what’s printed on the other side but there are ways to block it or design around it. Don't forget that our art department is chock full of creative graphic artists whose services are available at a reasonable additional cost.
I want my cards printed on clear plastic. Do you have any tips?
Printing on clear plastic yields cards that are really eye-catching, but it can be tricky specifying colors. To preserve color quality, we will first print a layer of opaque white, they the other colors on top of that. That makes the printed areas opaque and leaves the unprinted areas transparent. Be sure to specify the areas you want opaque, and the areas you want transparent. If you are at all unsure about what you are specifying, it might be wise to ask about a press proof (also known as a production proof). It is an additional cost, but it gives you some peace of mind.
