Looking for a lighter-weight metal business card?

My Metal Business Card offers Aluminum Business Cards!

However, there are a few important factors about aluminum cards that you need to know to make an educated buying decision.

Instead of our standard Stainless Steel Business Cards, Aluminum is an alternative that some customers prefer because it’s more lightweight and flexible. Although our team highly recommends Stainless Steel over Aluminum for its sturdiness and weight, here’s some quick facts for you to consider:

Aluminum Business Cards vs Stainless Steel Business Cards


Aluminum Business Cards

  • Lightweight compared to stainless steel – approximately 1/3 the weight
  • Softer Metal – Aluminum has more elasticity than stainless steel.
  • Less dense than stainless steel
  • Durable, but not as strong as stainless steel – more likely to bend

Stainless Steel Business Cards

  • Very tough and resilient
  • Harder than aluminum
  • Heavier than aluminum
  • Get more bang for your buck! – If you want Metal Business Cards that are rigid, yet not too thick, and feel luxurious in hand, go with Stainless Steel.

Almost all of My Metal Business Card’s metal products are made from the most common type of stainless steel – the 304 series. This grade of stainless steel is utilized in everyday products like kitchen sinks, pots and pans and various food processing equipment.

Stainless Steel is typically the preferred material by most of our clients; however we recognize the need for alternative options and variety! If you want Aluminum Business Cards, they are available upon request for the same price as our Stainless Steel cards!
