We can ship out with as fast as FedEx Next Day Air once we’ve completed production. If you’d like samples, all our sample kits ship as quick as same business day using pre-existing samples.

We do our best to communicate a clear timeline and follow up with tracking information as soon as your order of custom metal cards ships.
What info is needed for custom artwork design?
- Your logo! Best formats are if you have the original vector art: usually PDF, EPS, SVG or Ai (Illustrator)
- Photographs & Art Assets – High Resolution (300 dpi please)
- Colors, Brand Guidelines, and or Fonts (PMS colors are best)
- Any copy & call to action details – ie. Phone, Website, Address, Business License, Slogan etc.
Are logos and photos saved from the internet ok?
Generally, No, they will print looking very fuzzy, grainy, or “pixelated”. If you saved a low resolution bitmap file – jpg, gif, png, bitmap – Images from the web are designed to download on your computer quickly (makes websites seem very fast) and also you want to ensure you are not stealing copyright or trademarked art.
High quality artwork is typically produced in vector format (Ai, EPS, SVG, PDF) which is what we require for production. There are royalty free websites that offer copyright free use for production in vector that may work. We do have the ability to vectorize (recreate) your logo – if need be – to make it print clean and clear – Included FREE with our Metal Card Design Package.
What are metal business cards made of?
Metal Cards are best when made of a quality grade stainless steel. We use genuine type 304 stainless steel – which is a medical/surgical grade stainless steel commonly used for tools and knives for it’s durability, high tensile strength, corrosion and temperature resistance. We then we plate it with colored platings like black, white, gold, copper, rose gold to bring out the beautiful luster of metal.
We also can make cards out of type brass, aluminum, plastic and more, but we really specialize in high quality stainless steel business cards and membership cards.
How do you engrave a metal business card?
When you have stainless steel business cards, there are numerous ways to etch and engrave them. Unfortunately, many home laser etchers and tools like cricuts cannot penetrate the surface of the stainless steel. The two primary ways to engrave them in production is photochemical etching, and laser etching with a strong plasma or fiber machine. We can do either process at Metal Kards including variable laser etching.
How do you ship metal business cards?
Don’t worry about the cost of shipping metal cards! While our boxes are heavier than you’d expect due to Genuine Stainless Steel – we’ll get your cards to you quickly, cheaply with tracking and insured. Most shipments for standard orders are $10 for Flat Rate USPS 2-3 Day Priority Mail. Upgraded shipping via USPS 1-2 Day Priority Express, and FedEx 2-Day Air and Next Day Air are available at market rate.
How do I place a re-order?
We have your artwork on file, repeat orders are super easy. The easiest way is to reply to your order confirmation email, or let us know your last order number and we will can quickly and easily send you a custom link to place your order. It is as easy as that! We keep all artwork and production information on file and can easily place the same exact order as you initially placed, or even update it, with no added costs! In many cases, you will find great savings and speed on follow up orders.
Do you sell metal card blanks or templates?
We can make anything custom to your dreams – and that’s exactly what we do. We make every order custom to spec, which means we do not warehouse template blanks of metal business cards. We can absolutely make them for you, a lot of customers will have us make templates with their logo and design on them. We can give you the best pricing on a custom design, custom spec, plates and wholesale orders for blanks and templates.
What program should I use to create my metal card design?
If you do not have the ability to design a metal card – no problem at all. Just send us your logo and info and let us handle the design with our Metal Card Design Package. Generally our first design proof takes 1-2 business days, where our team will send you an online mockup to review and approve. Many of our clients that are designing their own labels use Adobe Illustrator with our Metal Card Art Template. Adobe Illustrator is the best option as the program outputs vector artwork. Vector artwork is what we need for production – We cannot go to production with bitmap art such as jpg, gif, png. Other alternatives include Inkscape, Gimp, and BoxySVG.
How many colors can I have on my Metal Business Card?
We can print any and every color in the rainbow. There are two types of color printing we offer. With Silkscreen, it’s like a thick paint and solid printing only (no shades or transparency) which we can do our best to color match with the Pantone® Matching System (PMS) value. This gives us a larger spectrum of colors, such as neons and metallics, that is durable and bright on our metal business card. We include your first color free, and can add as many more silkscreen colors as you want for a small additional price per color.
The other way we can print, is with Full Color Process (CMYK) which is the system of printing tiny dots like your home printer. On metal, we have to lay down white ink to print color onto, which does have a slightly grainy appearance like old film prints. This works great if the detail does not get too small, for things like photos, otherwise we recommend our quality Silkscreen Printing.
How do I print a metal card?
Printing your own metal card, generally is done in one of two ways. With silkscreen, a rubylith or negative is created on a mesh screen, which hardens so that you can push a thick ink made for metal surfaces through the mesh artwork in the screen – and print your information on the card. Each color is created with it’s own screenprint.
The other way is to use a multisurface inkjet printer, which is a special commercial type of printer that uses lithography or CMYK, to print the 4 or more ink colors onto the surface in a mesh pattern of small dots. The dots are so small, you can print a full spectrum of color images like how magazines are printed – on metal generally you must first print down a white ink layer for the cmyk ink to adhere to. Metal Kards uses both techniques to create high quality, durable printed metal business cards.
Are metal business cards better than plastic?
Metal business cards are made of durable stainless steel, which is known for it’s corrosian resistance, tensil strength and durability. This means compared to plastic, or paper, it has a better weight and strength. We can etch, print, color plate, cut out, and more with metal – plastic and paper don’t typically include as many options either. If you want the highest quality business card, you want a genuine Metal Kard.
