Plastic cards – technology and designs

Plastic cards in optimal quality

As a plastic card manufacturer, we attach great importance to quality and the satisfaction of our customers! That is why the cards we produce are multilayered and pressed on both sides with high-quality overlay films (glossy or matt). The printed image of the plastic cards is thus optimally protected. The punching of the cards guarantees exact dimensions according to DIN standard 7810.
For very large quantities, we alternatively produce single-layer mono cards in high-quality UV printing with UV varnish.
