How to Make Custom Wood and Metal Business Cards

Why does just about everybody have paper business cards? Why not have CNCROi.com make you wood and metal business cards that STAND OUT!

Custom Wood and Metal Business Cards: Real Wood

CNCROi.com specializes in using REAL WOOD, this isn’t the fake stuff, this wood comes from real trees that were cut and kiln dried to perfection using reputable saw mills we have direct relationships with.

First up, we’ll review your wooden option when it comes to custom wood and metal business cards. We are unique in this fashion because we make our wooden business cards in REAL WOOD.

We have lots of different species available to you, here is a review of just some of what’s possible using white oak, hard maple, basswood, cherry, walnut and bloodwood.

That’s not it either, here is what your custom wooden business card can look like in poplar, wenge, ash, zebrawood and padauk.

The more exotic the wood, the higher the cost per unit but this can be somewhat offset by higher volumes and slight design modifications to make the laser cutting and engraving process more efficient. At lease you have this option with CNCROi.com.

If you still want some more options, check out your options in yellow heart, alder, butternut, mahogany and red cedar.

Hardwoods, softwoods, even your own custom wood from a tree you cut in your backyard are all fair game though we use kiln dried wood for our work for durability and quality reasons.

CNCROi.com make all our custom wooden business cards on-demand and they are available in a large variety of thicknesses but generally the wood is 1/8th inch or 3 mm thick. It’s a nice balance of strength, weight and affordability.

As mentioned in the video, red cedar is an especially nice material to work with, as it has a very nice smell both before and after production. It is of course sanded, unlike the photo below which is straight from our Austrian CNC laser.

As we make these custom wood and metal business cards on demand, they can be made at any size with profiles however you wish. Do you want some elements cut out, other elements engraved or etched or paint filled? Your options are as endless as your budget.

What’s especially unique about this is that we can also make matching name badges or tags to go along with your custom wooden business cards.

Generally our REAL wood business cards are e make them standard business card sized 3.5 inches (89 mm) x 2.0 inches (51 mm) with rounded corners. There is no printing involved, so nothing will peel, crack or come off. It’s just wood with laser engraving and sometimes finishing. Nothing more, nothing less.

Custom Wood and Metal Business Cards: Anodized Aluminium

Another very popular option at CNCROi.com when it comes to custom wood and metal business cards is anodized aluminium. We offer a variety of thicknesses but generally, customers go with 0.02″ (0.67 mm) or 0.05″ (1.27 mm) thick cards.

Like our other wood and metal business cards production options, we can CNC laser engrave or anneal or etch just one side or both sides, it’s completely up to you!

As for the resolution, we can achieve tighter and higher resolution imagery on anodized aluminium or 304 stainless steel than wood, the reason being material density is higher on metals than plastics or real wood veneers.

So options like custom QR codes, high density scanning details or vectors, anodized aluminium is a fantastic option, unlike 304 stainless steel business cards, you get the addition of anodized color while 304SS only has a shiny reflective surface with black annealing.

CNCROi.com can help you with design options as well if you don’t know how or have design files yourself.

As a result, we can easily make matching ID badges with similar security features without the problems present with plastic or photocopied badges. These look nice, impossible to reproduce and easily cleaned for a lifetime.

Your custom options don’t just end there either, we also make lots of custom luggage tags and other matching items when it comes to wood and metal business cards. CNCROi.com can just as easily make all these solutions with real wood veneer but the durability of anodized aluminium is far higher than wood.

When it comes to custom sizing and profile though, we do need a volume order due to all the extra steps involved with custom metal work, unlike the custom wooden veneer business cards.

You can get some pricing information for these cards at Anodized Aluminium Business Cards.

Custom Wood and Metal Business Cards: Stainless Steel

Another very popular option when it comes to custom wood and metal business cards is 304 stainless steel which we custom cut and anneal for a very large variety of applications beyond business cards as you’ll see.

Like CNCROi.com‘s other wood and metal business cards production options, we can make matching sets, in this case, we do a lot of custom coasters out of steel as well as 304SS name badges and other custom items.

Getting them all done in one shot saves you money and allows for a large variety budgetary flexibility.

A very unique feature of stainless steel is that it can be welded to other materials or part of assembly which is why our custom metal solutions are very popular with welders and machine manufacturers, including artists looking to “sign” their work for exhibits and galleries.

To focus a little more on our custom welding tags, we offer them in volume with or without holes for riveting. This is an option because many of our customers just weld these welding tags directly to their work.

CNCROi.com offers these custom welding tags in a variety of materials and can go into custom production if you have enough volume.

Of course, if you want to have “welding tags” made out of wood, we can do that just as easily as any other material, including lamacoids. With CNCROi.com‘s wood and metal business cards, that is only a beginning, not an ending.

For instance, we also make a lot of custom Corian cutting boards, coasters and signage just as easily as custom corporate and restaurant table number stands including actually making the tables and chairs themselves to fit a theme at weddings.

A common question we get from customers is why would they give very expensive business cards (compared to paper) to customers at networking events. What I tell them is that these are not meant for EVERYBODY but only those select clients who have proven their worth.

laser-engraving-veneer-xx How to Make Custom Wood and Metal Business Cards

Even myself, as the owner of CNCROi.com give paper brochures and business cards at networking events and show people samples of what we can do, and I make this stuff! All my customers start with paper then work their way up from there.

Custom Wood and Metal Business Cards: Acrylic

We also offer custom plastic business cards out of acrylics and laminates or lamacoids.

The challenge with lamacoid, laminate or acrylic business cards is that they aren’t anywhere as durable as the other options and their cost isn’t very much different but they also have major advantages. This is relative though, they will still far outlast their paper cousins.

When it comes lamacoid business cards, luggage tags, coasters and name badges, the color and thickness variation is enormous from CNCROi.com.

laser-engraving-veneer-xx How to Make Custom Wood and Metal Business Cards

Unlike wood and metal business cards, lamacoids can be significantly cheaper when it comes to “metal looking” options and the acrylics are available in a large variety of thicknesses and can also be paint filled. For some applications, this is something that perfectly fits within some customer’s budget and timeline.

As CNCROi.com also makes everything on-demand, it means that we can make your business cards out of stainless steel and give you a matching name badge out of a lamacoid and as long as you take good care of it, it will last you a very long time.

laser-engraving-veneer-xx How to Make Custom Wood and Metal Business Cards

We can also mix and match these materials together for instance, if you want a very unique wall plaque, acrylic with lamacoids is a fantastic option or even plywood works great or MDF. The choice is up to you.

As for the resolution, on laminates CNCROi.com‘s wood and metal business cards, it depends on the substrate but we can make some very unique accessories without having to resort to paint and unlike wood or stainless steel, they weight next to nothing so can be put on a door or wall.

We can also make very useful custom branded and created accessories of acrylic, so they can match your business cards or anything else you wish to have us custom fabricate for you, including mirrored acrylic custom cake toppers.
