Types of Printing
Generally there are two ways to print a card:
For higher volumes, the best way to do this is at the time of manufacture using offset and silkscreen printing processes; the bank quality finish is excellent although lead-times are a factor you need to consider. Click here for more information on the pre-printing process
For a quick turn-around, the best method is our bureau using dye sublimation or re-transfer desktop printers; the cards are surface printed so white cards can be printed from existing stocks. Click here for more information on our printing services using our bureau
