In our highly competitive world, more than ever, business representatives feel the need to make a positive first impression with potential clients and assure them of their professionalism and credibility. A translucent business card with printed transparency effects is a salient way to convey that message. Watch the “WOW” effect each time you give out your card.


To create a graphic layout that meets the technical specifications required for production, please follow these guidelines to optimize the process and the manufacturing time of translucent frosted plastic cards.

Final card format:

CR 80, 3.375″ X 2.125″ ( 86 mm X 54 mm )

Allow for an additional 1/8″ (3.2 mm) of bleed around the card in the final format in order to prevent white from showing once cut.
