Can you upload more than one design for one order?

Asked by: Kenyssa
Great question! The prices displayed online are for one design only so you can only upload one design for one item. If you need to order more than one design, you would need to upload and add these as separate items to your shopping cart.

I want to print plastic business cards with serial numbers because those "business cards" will be more like gift certificates having the size of a credit card. The reason I am interested with those plastic business cards is because they are reusable.

Are the transparent cards able to house a QR scan code ? Forgive me if if my question has already been answered, I didn’t take the time to read the FAQ’s lol. 

Asked by: DeMar B
No worries. While we can print a QR code on the clear cards if this is included in the artwork, this is not something we recommend as the code may be difficult to scan. Since we do not print white ink on the cards, all white parts or areas in your design will be clear, and all colors may look a bit translucent. If you need a QR code printed on your cards, we would recommend going with other business cards printed on cardstock. You can check out the different options available here: https://www.nextdayflyers.com/business-card-printing/

The order form doesn't allow for full color both sides on the frosted or clear plastic. Will you do it for me, pretty please?

Asked by: NickB
With plastic business card printing, as a standard option, we offer full printing on the front only because it is particularly challenging to make the artwork perfectly match when viewed through the opposite side of clear plastic. We can however print plastic business cards with full color printing on both sides as a custom print job. If you're interested in this option, feel free to contact us by phone and ask to be transferred to our custom estimating team, or submit a request for a quote for custom plastic business cards by navigating to Services/Custom Printing at the top of our web page.
