Working with clear card material offers options not available with solid plastic cards, including the ability to “control” transparency. Unlike solid plastic cards, clear cards open up a host of design options, including opaque and translucent colors, and the ability to use clear card material as a design accent.
Here are a few basic tips to help in the design of your clear business cards:
- Opaque (solid) colors are achieved by printing a white silkscreen background underneath the color, which also enables double-sided printing on clear cards
- Translucent (semi-transparent) colors are achieved by removing the white silkscreen background, providing a color-tinted look.
- If a frosted finish is utilized, it will add a soft white translucent look to clear portions of the card, as well as a smooth dull texture. Frosted plastic business cards can offer a more refined look and feel.
- With clear business cards, sometimes less crystal clear transparency is most effective. Consider using transparency as an accent to your design. See our gallery for examples.
