Q & A
What is the minimum order quantity?
We can print as few as 100 pcs per design.
However it's much better to get perfect printing if order qty is minimum 500 pcs per design.
How long will it take to print my order?
It depends on what you've ordered and the service you picked. Regardless of what you've ordered, all our work has a guaranteed turnaround time. Normally, it will take 10 days to finish 10,000 pieces basic CMYK printing plastic card.
What are your cards made from?
Our cards are made from new PVC plastic - the proper stuff - not that flimsy encapsulated cardboard stuff that tends to fall apart. All of our cards are laminated and have rounded corners which make them last much longer, just like your bank card.
Can I see an actual plastic card sample with my design?
Yes, we have 7 day express service to make a sample for you. But prior to that, we need to work together to confirm the digital proof.
The proof card is done by normal processes, just like what we are going to do with your normal order. There is to be little cost that we are going to deduct from your order amount finally.
