Suede Business Cards
While the term coined for these cards sounds interesting, suede business cards are not literally suede, nor do they really feel like real suede. They have move of a rose petal like feel to them. The texture is modern and soft with a very smooth and slightly rubbery touch. It’s texture is amazing and it’s a lamination called “soft touch”.
Intro to Soft Touch Business Cards
Just around 6 years ago, we produced a sample of a stock we later introduced as our soft touch stock to the PremiumCards website. It first started as a liquid application rather than a lamination. Proving to be inconsistent in opacity and in turn affecting the print clarity and color. The product was removed and put on hold. Shortly after, we re-introduced a new stock called 24pt Soft Touch. It was somewhat of a success. Basically a 14pt standard print with a premium 5 mil soft touch lamination on both sides giving it a final 24pt thickness. Everyone loves these and we recently added them back on our website. The only downfall is how long they take to produce and is why removed them from the website to begin with. Once a run is full, it takes about 7 business days to complete since some of the soft touch business cards come with spot uv.
So, when you think about suede business cards, think about soft touch business cards. We carry a 19pt, 38pt and a Premium 24pt Soft Touch range of these luxury cards. Options such as edge painting and hot foil stamping are also available at an additional cost. The 38pt Soft Touch Business Cards are duplexed, made with 2 cards combined making a single card. This is also called 2-Ply and there’s even 3-ply and 4-ply and why thicker ply? Too thick is too thick.
Regardless of what you call them, we have more options in soft touch cards than most. Let us know if you have something special in mind. You can

Masters of the Sun Comic Book Edge Paint Project
I still can’t get over what took place a couple weeks ago. This has to be the most interesting and scariest projects we’ve ever taken on. A lot was on the line and the end product was incredible.
Our partners at Graphicom Digital called for a meeting with the head project coordinator for Will.I.Am from the Blacked Eyed Peas (Eddie about something special. Anticipation of what the meeting was about kept us on edge and sleepless. Last month my partner Ralph asked if we can edge paint a special project that would require complete anonymity and results to be as close to perfect as possible. Say what? All it was for was to hide the white edge of the cover. It made no sense with a white edge. I saw will on West Coast Customs with Ryan Friedlinghaus (who’s cards we happen to edge paint as well) and he was customizing his vintage corvette. Not just changing out rims and paint, but customizing. From his head and vision came a creation that is one of a kind and top of the line.
The meeting took place at the Mindpower offices in Monterey Park, CA home of a billion Chinese restaurants, or something like that. We met back in early July and it was short, but as soon as we found out what the project was gonna be, we were on it with all hands on deck. PremiumCards.net was commissioned to paint the edges of a book cover. Not just any book, but a cover for an urban style comic book written by will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas. Will played a huge role in the story and creation of the book in this super detailed urban wonder that calls itself “Masters of the Sun” It’s crazy and not for kids, but it’s a Marvel Comic Book and it’s incredible!
Take a look at the final product. We had a lot to do with preparing 1000’s of covers for edge paint and our partners at Graphicom did a great job in completing the project when we were done with the edges in a record amount of time and in great condition. Still can’t believe we had a part in this project. It was just the cover, the tiny edge and it was scary and almost the last step in the project. If it didn’t work, we’d be up the creek! The books were carefully built and our edge paint was just about perfect. So many treatments on the book and so many places something could’ve gone wrong, but didn’t. Guys, we are just so honored to be part of this. Being a huge fan of the Black Eyed Peas makes this even more special.
Sounds like a potential giveaway is in the future. Want to get your hands on one? We’re gonna see if we can get Will to sign a few for us to give away. Cheers! What do you say Will?
