Are your cards environmentally friendly?
Our most popular cards are made from PVC. Whilst it’s not the most environmentally friendly material our cards last an incredibly long time thanks to advanced production methods and premium materials. If you do want a more environmentally friendly material we offer Bio PVC which degrades in soil after approximately three years. We also urge you to create a visually stunning design - it costs no extra to print and we find these cards stay in peoples wallets and purses far longer than dull, boring cards.
Can you supply bank cards?
We do not supply currently VISA or MasterCard bank cards
