Plastic Cards

Cards Plus provide card based solutions, local  manufacturing and leading edge technology together with exceptional customer service for the quality conscious client. Using a large digital offset press, sheets of plastic are printed, laminated and die cut. There are no plates involved in this method and cards can be immediately personalised. Using a six colour process, imaging is brighter and clearer than ever before! Unlike Lithography offset printing, colour variation between cards is virtually non-existent and colour saturation is clear and crisp.
