Laser-Cut Business Cards FAQ
What types of business cards do you sell?
We offer our laser-cut business cards in three main categories, wood, metal and paper. Our wood business cards are available in birch, bamboo, teak, basswood, alder as well as custom requests. Most of the metal business cards we sell are anodized aluminum in various colors. We also offer bare aluminum and stainless steel business cards but these are usually specialty orders. Our paper business card category consists of 100% rag museum board or mat board (depending color), 14pt card stock and poster board. We can create beautiful effects in all mediums, the main differentiating factors between the three categories is how the material fits your brand / audience and price.
Are your wood business cards real wood? What are they made out of?
Yes, all of our business cards are 100% real wood. Most of our cards are made from pairing a thin adhesive-backed piece of wood with a clean one to create a beautiful presentation once laser-etched and cut.
What are your metal business cards made out of? Can you do custom shapes?
For the most part we use 2" x 3.5" colored, anodized aluminum business cards with .02" rounded corners. We can cut simple custom shapes out of anodized aluminum sheets but the edges will not match the finish. If the edges must match or for complex shapes we can run custom jobs or purchase blanks. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss custom projects.
What are your paper business cards made out of? What is museum board?
Museum board and mat board are materials used for framing photos and artwork. These are thick, high quality materials that allow you to create beautiful designs when you laser-cut your graphics. These cards about 1mm thick and hold up great in pockets and wallets. We also offer 14pt card stock and poster board business cards that are less expensive and can make just as much of an impact on a prospective client. These two types are thinner than the museum board cards at .3-.5mm.
Will you sample my card before you produce them?
Definitely. We want you to enjoy your business card as much as possible so we will produce a sample and send a photo for approval to the email address used during checkout.
