20pt Clear Plastic


New member
I see a lot of online vendors offering 20pt clear plastic business cards but I'm at a loss as to where they're sourcing the material. I have some MGX and Mohawk samples but the ones I've seen all max out at 10pt. Does anyone happen to know where this stuff is hiding?

In the past I have seen these printed on Lexan 8A35 and 8B35 which is a little frosted but Lexan also does come in gloss/gloss clear as well.

We print tool cards on 15pt and 20pt on our Versant 2100. We get it from a place called Press Sense.

Update: I missed the part where you said "clear". They might have clear, but we haven't ever bought it.

It has been my experience that many printers are outsourcing the 20PT plastic to 4over.com . They offer it in solid and clear. We dont sell the 20PT. We offer the 48PT plastics and cards. But we have had to go to Korea to get a provider of plastic cards thick as 30PT to 48PT.

Color Optimized?

by Noel Ward, Editor@Large
Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
