Premium Look and Premium Feel Velvet Touch Custom Business Cards
Feel the difference with Velvet Cards — soft to the touch, they bestow a hint of luxury to brands and create marketing pieces that stand out from the competition. Velvet Cards are printed with high quality equipment on 16pt card stock, then they are laminated on both sides with 1.5mil scuff resistant, soft velvet laminate, which give them a substantial thickness of 19pt.
What are Velvet Cards and how thick are they?
We start with 16pt stock as a base and apply 1.5mil soft velvet, scuff resistant laminate to both sides of the sheet for a total thickness of 19pt. The soft velvet lamination adds a soft supple look and feel, which softens colors, reduces contrast and gives an overall lighter, muted appearance.
Are Velvet Cards water resistant or waterproof?
Velvet Cards are water resistant, but not waterproof. This means the cards stand up well when they come in contact with a small amount of water, but cannot be submerged in water without water seeping into the card and causing damage. Please test your specific application to ensure the cards are appropriate for that use.
Is Velvet a coating or a laminate?
The term “Velvet” refers to the soft, supple texture of the cards, not the actual materials used. A soft velvet laminate is applied to both sides of the card to achieve a luxurious suede-like look and feel.
