This post takes a very brief look at how my personal business card is produced, and mentions the great customer service I received in the process. It’s printed on white 330gsm Plike, with single colour black on the front and pearl white foil blocking on the reverse.
I love the feel of Plike (short for plastic-like). It’s unlike any other business card I’ve felt.
There were initially problems with the ink off-setting onto the back of another when stacking for delivery. This was due to the substrate needing a special ink, which unfortunately my printer, Splash Print, didn’t know about until after the first run. Splash Print’s customer service was great however. They sent me 100 of the best cards from the first print (which were quite usable), re-ordered more stock and ink to re-do the job, then sent the full amount for no extra cost.
I’d use them again for special finishes.

This post was published in 2007. Today I’m more likely to use these letterpress note cards.
