Production Materials, Colour Options, Surface Finishes and Effects:

All your cards can be made of a variety of materials and can have many additional effects to increase their value, such as

Plastic Cards

Plastic Cards

The cards are made of PVC plastic with a total thickness of 0.76 mm (including double-sided lamination). Chip cards with a total thickness of 0.80 to 0.84 mm. On request, other thicknesses, types (PVH, ABS, PET, PET-G, PC poly-carbonate) and plastic colours are available.
Plastic cards - Transparent Plastic

Plastic cards - Transparent Plastic

Transparent cards are standard made of transparent PVC plastic with a total thickness of 0.76 mm (including double-sided lamination). Chip cards with a total thickness of 0.80 to 0.84 mm. On request, other thicknesses are available. The color of the transparent plastic can be adjusted by additional printing.
Paper Cards

Paper Cards

Cheaper and less long-life than plastic cards. Paper cards are standard made of 300 g / m2 solid paper. For example, the following elements can be applied to paper cards: full-color offset printing, personalized data, hot stamping. RFID (NFC) chip, a magnetic strip (Lo Co, Hi Co) can also be applied.
Wooden Cards

Wooden Cards

Wooden cards are produced by using various wooden veneers in several different thicknesses. The shape and cut-out can be designed almost in any way - only depending on your imagination if complying with the applicable physical laws. Cards printed in full color and motives can be engraved by laser. Magnetic strip (Hi Co, Lo Co) can also be applied or RFID (NFC) chip can be insert too.
Metal cards

Metal cards

Metal cards are made of stainless steel or cooper. For example, the following elements and technologies can be applied to these cards:
  • Cutting,
  • engraving,
  • etching,
  • plating,
  • printing, including full color,
  • magnetic stripe (LoCo, HiCo)
  • contact chip.
Basic Variants of Metallic Backgrounds

Basic Variants of Metallic Backgrounds

You can choose from the following silk-screen palette of metallic backgrounds (see left):
  • Pearl 38001 - (suitable in conjunction with offset full-colour overprint).
  • Silver 3458 - (suitable in conjunction with offset full-colour overprint).
  • Gold 4320 - (when combined with offset overprint strongly affects the colour rendering).
  • Gold 3522 - (when combined with offset overprint strongly affects the colour rendering).
Partial Applications of Metallic Backgrounds

Partial Applications of Metallic Backgrounds

Screen printing of metallic backgrounds can also be partly applied to cards.
Metalized Overprint Effects by Offset Printing

Metalized Overprint Effects by Offset Printing

The basic metallic background is silver, pearl, gold. By using CMYK or Pan tone paint subsequent application on the metallic, a metalized effect of a particular colour or tone will arise.
Cards Laminating

Cards Laminating

You can choose from the following types of lamination:
  • Shiny lamination
  • Matte lamination
  • Frosted lamination
UV Card Coating

UV Card Coating

Can be applied in combination with:
  • Matte/ Frosted lamination with shiny UV varnish motives.
  • Shiny lamination with matte UV varnish motives.
Cards can be varnished partially (any motive) and allover the board (additional cards protection against mechanical damage).
Hot-stamping

Hot-stamping

Different motives can be applied. As standard we offer a gold or silver metal foil. We can also add a different foil colour, including an iridescent colour (with the rainbow colour change) or holographic foil.
Hot Laser

Hot Laser

Metallic iridescent (rainbow color change) surface"Hot Laser" applied to the card by hot stamping. There is a choice of silver and gold base metal foil.
Metallic Thermoprint

Metallic Thermoprint

There is a choice from gold, silver or other metal foils. It can also be used as a personalization tool (numerical series, text strings, etc.).
Drawn Wire Effect

Drawn Wire Effect

A luxury surface suitable in conjunction with simple motives, best in the form of screen printing, laser engraving, or by partial varnishes and hot stamping. In our offer, there is a silver and gold drawn wire effect.
Flocking

Flocking

In this effect, microfibers (of different colours) are applied to the card to create a suede impression.
Holograms

Holograms

We supply holograms:
  • Standard - non-personalized - produced in series, in that case cheaper but more easily to replicate (less protection functionality).
  • Standard - additionally personalized by thermoprint, more expensive than non- personalized, but more difficult to replicate.
  • Individual- according to your design, in that case with very good effectiveness of protection against misuse, but relatively expensive (especially for small editions, up to ten thousand pieces).
  • Application of Holograms - either by hot stamping or as a disposable single use sticker (will be damaged when attempted to peel).
  • Metallic silver, gold, copper or transparent plastic backing foil.


 

Card Personalization:

Smooth personalization and photography

Smooth personalization and photography

  • Numbering and text data are mostly implemented by thermoprinting. The basic colours are black, white a metallic gold/silver.
  • Fig.1: Several thermoprint colours´ samples on a white card (gold, silver, black, red).
  • Fig.2: Several thermoprint colour samples on gold metallic (gold, silver, black, white).
  • Fig.3: Classic personal card samples (companies, student, club, ...) with a photo and black personal data.
Embossed (relief) Personalization

Embossed (relief) Personalization

  • We stamp small and big characters, in metallic shiny gold and silver colours, also black and white.
  • Capital characters: 4.5 mm high, OCR-7A set, only 0 to 9 numeral figures and dash (Figs. 2 and 3).
  • Small characters: 3 mm high, SIMPLEX 2 set, numeral figures 0 to 9, furthermore the complete capital alphabetic characters (without Czech diacritics) and also the characters and punctuation marks () -., / & # (see partly Figs. 2 and 3).
  • When designing graphics, it is necessary to consider the character´s puncturing on the opposite side of the card and the RFID antenna´s chip location.
1D a 2D Barcodes

1D a 2D Barcodes

  • Of the most existing types the most frequently asked codes are:
    • EAN13 (codes 12 characters, only 0-9, the last character is a control character),
    • EAN8 (codes 7 characters, only 0-9, the last character is a control character),
    • Interleaved 2/5 (ITF): codes only 0-9, if there is no even number, there is a "0" at the beginning . In the case of Mod10, the last character is a control character),
    • CODE128 (codes the most of alphanumeric characters, including small letters),
    • CODE39 (codes 0-9, capital A-Z, a space, and 7 characters: * - $%. / +),
    • CODABAR (codes 0-9, letters A, B, C, D and 6 characters: - +.: / $),
  • QR CODE (2D) allows to encode any character, address, phone, URL, but with the ammount of characters, the density of the code structure increases, and therefore its readability is reduced.
Signature and Scratching Field

Signature and Scratching Field

  • Signature field - Can also be written into with a pen. The data is very difficult to rewrite (in addition, an overwriting attempt can be easily identified). It can be transparent, white or in many other colours.
  • Scratching field- a special opaque cover of different design, very effectively preventing the possibility of identifying personalized data under unscraped field layer (e.g. with a fingernail).
Magnetic Stripe

Magnetic Stripe

  • LoCo - commonly dark brown. Can also be written into with a Hi Co strip recorder.
  • HiCo - commonly black, more resistant to external magnetic fields compared with LoCo. Attention – it is impossible to write into the magnetic field with a pen only meant for a Loco-strip recorder.
  • We also encode magnetic stripes
  • On special request, we can also provide a different magnetic stripe colour (for example silver, gold or other).
  • In our offer, there are also narrower, two-track magnetic strips available.
Contact and contactless chip

Contact and contactless chip

  • Contact Chip - we usually supply the chips: AT24C, SLE5542, SLE5528, AT88SC.
  • Contactless (RFID / NFC) chip - we apply chips of all commonly used frequencies (LF, HF, UHF), most often: EM (Unique) 4102, ATA5577, Mi fare Classic 1 kB and 4 kB, Mi fare Ultralight, I-SLI2 Higgs, Impinj Monza etc.
  • However, we can also equip the cards with chips manufactured by well-known world producers.
  • We also produce cards with a multiple chips combination and other elements (e.g. RRFID chip and magnetic strip, 2 different RFID chips (DUO card), contact chip + RFID chip + magnetic strip, etc.).
