Brushed/glossy silver card business card
The stainless steel surface texture of natural metal texture is very suitable for the corrosion and silk screen process of simple design.

02 / Craftsmanship
Using advanced photochemical milling technology, steel can be etched and cut accurately, creating complex patterns and hollowing effects, and text can be silk-printed or etched on the metal surface to provide good readability, and the contrast between etched and unetched Can produce surface effects with different textures.
Ⅰ Silk screen and color filling can make the cold metal surface undergo color processing, thereby expanding the design methods of metal cards.
Ⅱ Realize precise cutting through etching process to form hollow effect.
Ⅲ Paste a layer of photoresist film on the metal surface, and then expose the steel plate to an acidic environment to corrode the surface of the stainless steel, and the core of the corroded material is exposed, which contrasts with the original surface by forming two different textures. Improved readability.

04 / Cost
Reasonable cost-effectiveness ratio can also make a high compelling effect
We should pursue an ideal balance between cost and process effect. We should not ignore the cost because of the one-sided pursuit of process effect, and we should not stifle our creativity because of cost constraints!
Choose metal silver card or black card as the material, and the craftsmanship uses a simple style. Of course, the number is also the key to determining the cost.
Complex and exaggerated decorations
Can choose gold plating or other color plating, using frosted shading, electrophoretic coloring dots, etching, laser and other complex processes
