My Metal Business Card | Mmbc Why Card Thickness Matters

At My Metal Business Card, our number one priority aside from great customer experience is the quality and feel of our products. Our four metal business card options: Stainless Steel, Black Metal, Copper Finish and Brass Finish are made of 304 grade stainless steel. Many first time buyers ask, “How thick are the cards? Are they heavy? Do they bend?”  We’re here to answer your questions!

After years of perfecting our products as the industry leader in metal business cards, we’ve made our standard thickness .5mm (or .019″ inch, or 500 microns). This thickness gives great rigidity and hand feel, which is one of the many reasons why card thickness matters. We ask that you request free samples, and see how .5mm compares to the rest – experience the MMBC difference and you will understand.

With marketing and advertising styles constantly evolving, we understand our clients’ need for a quality, customized product. My Metal Business Card offers an array of card thicknesses for you to choose from.

Photographed from left to right, you can see the different thicknesses offered: .3mm, .5mm, .8mm, 1mm and 2mm. 

The thinnest card we offer is .3mm, which is slightly thinner than our standard card thickness of .5mm. There is no extra cost for .3mm; just let us know you want this thickness when placing an order. We also offer .8mm, 1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm thick. It’s important to note that 1mm cards and thicker are laser etched or screen printed only. We do not chemically etch 1mm+ cards due to production limitations with the card thickness. Pricing for these options are dependent on which type of finish you prefer as well as the quantity. Give us a call at 714.213.8155 for a custom quote!

Often times, the card thickness you need is directly correlated with what purpose your cards will have. Functionality can be key. Here are some contrasting points about the various card thicknesses we offer:

  • .3mm – Our lightest offering. Perfect for those looking to have highly intricate etching or cutout areas.
  • .5mm – Our standard .5mm thickness is the most popular among our family of clients. One card with this thickness weighs approximately 0.6 oz.
  • .8mm – Often preferred by clients looking for a heavier card. .8mm is closest to credit card thickness (0.76 of a millimeter or 760 micron thick)-perfect for cards with magnetic stripes that will be swiped often.
  • 1mm – Typically too thick for metal business cards but great for being used as a magnet, for example.
  • 1.5mm – The standard thickness we offer for bottle openers. This thickness allows for bottle opener functionality and durability.
  • 2mm – The thickest size we offer!

Still not convinced? Check out our competition, but beware. Several companies claim to sell cheap, high-quality metal cards, but customers find out later the cards are not metal; instead, they have a metal-like varnish. Other websites offer metal business cards, but their standard thickness is much thinner than ours. We encourage you to research your metal business card options because card thickness and the quality and feel of your cards are important –remember, your satisfaction is guaranteed with our products! It’s our mission to provide you with quality, highly customized metal business cards that make you stand out and leave a lasting impression.
