METAL BUSINESS CARDS
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ( F.A.Q. )
How can I get metal card samples?
You can get samples of our metal cards via our samples page at – https://metalkards.com/samples/
What if I don’t have artwork?
No problem! Let our talented in-house design team create the perfect card for you based on your current logo and feedback. Simply select our Metal Card Design Package. We’ll make your cards perfect – or your money back.
Can I order just one metal card?
With our production process, unfortunately it’s not possible for us to make one card. If you’re looking to make a large order, we recommend ordering 50qty as samples.
What’s your standard turnaround time?
Our general production takes between two and three weeks after artwork approval. Please call or email us for expedited delivery options.
How do you apply the printed colors?
We etch the card surface, then silkscreen colors to the PMS match of your choice, right onto the surface of our metal cards. With our precision technique, we can get very detailed art into our extra high weave silkscreens.
How do I send artwork for my order?
To order cards, simply select the quantity of cards you’d like. Next, select “artwork service” and choose if you will supply your own artwork, or have our professional design team create your layout. Either selection will provide you with UPLOAD buttons to select files. OR email email@example.com
Can you print in full color?
Absolutely! We silkscreen white then print in 4-color process for stunning full color on your metal business cards.
Are there setup fees?
No! If you supply your artwork in 100% vector with the correct layout we will create a free proof for you. Send us your art if you are unsure to firstname.lastname@example.org – if you need us to vectorize your artwork, we offer our design services at discounted rates for our customers.
Can you do multiple names for a Corporate or Special Order?
If you need more than +10 sets of cards or need special custom printing, please contact us at email@example.com or call +1 (866) 314-5273
What’s included with all metal card orders?
We want to give you the best product at the best price. Our base pricing includes all cut-through, die cut areas, standard surface etching, rounded corners AND one screen printed color. Each card also comes in it’s own protective plastic sleeve, so you’re giving out perfection every time.
Do you ship internationally? Can you take orders outside the United States?
We currently only take payments and ship orders within the United States and Canada.
Do you offer a template for designers?
Yes we do! You’ll want to decide if you would like your card in Credit Card (85mm x 54mm) or Business Card (89mm x 51mm) size – the cost is the same but credit card size will fit in wallets and gift card slots whereas traditional business card size will not.

Can you do Credit Card Size metal cards?
Absolutely, and we recommend it! There is no cost difference to use Credit Card (85mm x 54mm) or Business Card (89mm x 51mm) size.
Why use Credit Card Size? Because credit card size will fit in wallets and gift card slots whereas traditional business card size will not. We’ve also found that nearly all business card holders will also fit credit card size – a credit card is slightly shorter and taller than a business card.
Can you create a QR code for us?
Yes, we can create a QR code based on your website URL, vCard information, and more with any active order.
What size should my QR code be?
We recommend 0.75 inches square or larger. We have had issues with QR codes smaller than 0.5 inches.
Do you recommend an app to read QR codes?
Apple and Google, with the top two phone operating systems (iOS, Android) have been implementing QR code reading abilities into their phones slowly over the last couple of years. Right now, within Google Chrome on either platform, you can scan a QR code by going to the URL box, and on the keyboard hitting the QR code icon – which is one of the best ways to go.
