What's so great about The Plastic Card Factory Plastic Cards?

The Plastic Card Factory is dedicated to quality card production and personal service for individuals and companies big and small. As an American company, we understand the needs of our customers and work hard to meet and exceed those needs.

We specialize in affordable small and large-run custom plastic cards printing. Because of our proprietary manufacturing method, customers may order as few as 250 cards and get the same quality and value enjoyed by other customers that purchase many thousands of plastic cards or laminated cards. We offer quantity discounts and work hard to meet tight production deadlines.

All of our cards feature impressive graphics and include a durable, brilliant finish with die-cut radioed corners for unparalleled appearance and longevity.

I need custom IDs. How do I send the employee pictures?

We accept .pdf, .psd, .jpg, .jpeg, .cdr, .gif, .ai, .txt, format files via e-mail, or mail us a CD with the pictures (please use the company name 1,2,3, etc. as the pictures file name). We can also scan your hard copy pictures for a nominal fee. (TIP: When taking pictures for ID cards, use a light blue background as it absorbs the flash and doesn't reflect off your subject. Center the head and shoulders and try to stay 3 - 5 feet away; the closer the better!)

Absolutely! We can include your existing logos, photographs, text and graphics in your layout, as long as they meet our design requirements. Most do. For specifics visit our "How to Order" page.
