5 Popular Name Card Printing Techniques

5 Popular Name Card Printing Techniques

With constant innovation, name card design specialists have been continuously inventing newer and better printing techniques for name cards. Here are 5 most popular printing techniques. Have you tried out any of them?

Name Card Design Template

  1. Thermography

Thermography is a printing process that uses a special type of powder that is mixed in with the ink. The special mixture is heated and dried, and that produces a raised sort of effect on the name card material. The end results closely resemble engraving, though the process is vastly different compared to engraving.

  1. Letterpress

According to sources, letterpress is actually the oldest printing process for name card printing. Letterpress name cards are produced with details or logos that are raised but inked and pressed. This sort of printing process is used for elegant minimalistic designs to create a 3D sort of effect.

  1. Silk Screening

Silk screening is a type of screen printing that makes use of woven mesh and ink-blocking stencils. Ink is transferred to the name card material by way of the stencil with the mesh structure, and a roller that is rolled across the stencil to displace the ink. Silk screening is an interesting printing technique that requires patience but the effect that is produced is unlike no other!

  1. Foil printing

Foil printing is a printing process that essentially affixes foil to specific areas of your name card through the help of vector images, outlined fonts and also a heating procedure. Once it is affixed properly, you will have a name card with subtle or vibrant foil colours to make it stand out.

  1. Embossing/Debossing

Embossing and debossing are similar printing techniques. Embossing creates a raised image on your name card while debossing creates an image similar to etching. These printing processes requires a metal plate for pressing, and also a stencil or press, as well as heat.
With the continuous invention of new printing techniques, these are the most prevalent and popular options so far. Be sure to try some of them out to see which ones suit your name card designs the best!
