Name cards have been around for hundreds of years as an essential business tool. While it started as hand-written artworks which were rare and quite difficult to make, they were soon superseded by the burgeoning technology of Printing. Starting with Block Printing, Name Cards were made vastly more attractive by the use of Offset Printing with multiple colors. In fact, color Name Cards now took over from single color block printed cards almost completely. But then, Name Card Printing entered a new phase.
The Age Of Digital Printing
Then there was a revolution in Printing of Name Cards. The development of computerized multicolor Printers made it possible to print cards directly from the PC screen. Printers which could use not just paper but a number of materials such as PVC and Vellum, now allowed other forms of printing Name Cards to be almost completely bypassed.
Digital printing of Name Cards allows fine details to be reproduced faithfully and Spot UV business cards as well as extreme calligraphy are also possible. High quality materials such as Vellum can also be used instead of the usual Bond or Art paper. Lamination converts ordinary paper cards into plasticized cards.
The State Of The Art
Name Card Printing has now reached a stage where the cards can be finished with Lamination, Spot UV, Plastics, Uncoated, Linen, Ivory, Fine textured, PVC, Pantone, Vellum, Embossed, Round Cornered, Hotstamp and Die Cut. A modern Name Card has become a technological work of art that prospective customers and potential investors will treasure and carefully keep with themselves.
