Plastic Cards & Synthetic Papers

Durability for your tough job 

Plastic cards and synthetic papers are all the rage. The durability and longevity of plastic materials is unbeatable, with many options for tear, water, and chemical resistance to extend the life of the printed piece. Due to the longer life cycle of synthetic-based solutions vs. paper-based products, reprints are less frequent. Plastic materials are less expensive than laminating paper at various quantities (although we do lots of that too!), and can also be a quicker turnaround due to the time involved in laminating.

Synthetic/Polyester Papers

Synthetic and polyester papers are becoming increasingly more popular. Customers who work outdoors, from Mt. Baker to the construction job site in the PNW rain, are susceptible to the elements and like to have something weatherproof, durable, and reliable to help them with their already demanding job.

Tyvek is a widely common material being used in the U.S. since the mid-1970s, however printers have struggled to get the ink to stick and dry on it. Various mills and suppliers are coming out with more and more products to meet this growing demand, and each type of material has its own caveats. Due to the nature of the weatherproofing and waterproofing of some stocks, it is difficult to get any ink or toner to adhere to them and have that ink be dry enough for use in the field. Mills began to add coatings to other synthetic brands, like a clay covering, so that inks and toners could be adhered. Some are designed for digital machines, while others have altered their chemical makeups to allow ink to absorb into them. Regardless of the type of material you use, synthetic papers might be what you need to get the job done. 

Synthetic paper, PVC, and polyester are used for both indoor and outdoor applications. We can make menus, manuals, signage, ID cards, forms, covers, and much, much more.
