A card provides added value for you and your clients not only by technology, but by being adapted along purpose and needs. We know that the function goes before design but we prefer to have something that is both stylish and works. The focus of this article is on graphic design and how we can give that to you. This is one way for you to build brand, create emotion and create a sense of belonging. We provide ISO plastic cards of all types of technologies. The shiny surface of our cards gives us great opportunities to combine functionality with graphics and design. We print and program the cards to fit your solution in the best possible way. Typical cards are membership cards, tickets, loyalty cards, business cards, event cards and ID cards.
We want to show the opportunities you have when you are using Areff as your supplier.
The card standard size is 85 x 54 x 0.76 mm.
If you make your own design, be sure that you take into count the space a magnetic strip takes. If you want to print your card digitally we prefer to get a PDF file in CMYK, and it should be in exact measurements. If you send an EPS, we want you to convert all text into paths.
At Bleed we want you to have 3 mm on each side of the card’s external borders. The image should be at least 300 DPI

Working with structures such as matte and glossy finish on the same card can be really striking. Card with metallic colors creates the feeling of a luxurious card. More structures that can be used are holograms, mirror effect, brushed metal / plastic and different “layering” effects.
