New branded Bar Tab Cards now available – just £102 for 100

plastic bar tab cards

We’ve been printing quite a few branded bar tabs for our restaurant and club customers lately, so we thought we’d make them easier for you to find.

Here they are!

Just £102 for 100 plastic bar tab cards, or £122 for 200

Prices are for full colour print on both sides of the card, and include your choice of gloss or matt print finish. Same thickness as a standard credit card.

You could have them printed with sequential numbers for a little extra.

They’re durable and reusable – and look far more professional than a paper ticket, and will last a lot longer too.

Use the back to include some text or a disclaimer

Print is included on both sides of the card, so you could use it to remind your customers of usage rules.

Or give a fun reminder of what do to if they take the card home with them instead of their bank card (which let’s be honest, we’ve all done).

We can include a load of features or finishes on the cards if you’re looking for something special, like spot UV varnish, or embossing. 

Don’t forget we can set your artwork for just £25.

Autumn Promotion: Up to 2 Free Design Changes on all Custom Printed Cards

To mark the beginning of Autumn, we’re offering the chance to have up to three designs in total on the same print run, for the same price.

Antenna use 3 different designs for their membership categories

In other words, you could order 1,000 membership cards and split the run into three different designs – so each membership category gets a different colour card and design for example; making them easy to recognise.

The promotion runs until 31st October 2018 and applies to all custom printed cards, key tags, 2-part snap-off cards, event passes, parking permits or car park hangers.

Why would you want 2 free design changes anyway?

The greater the volume of cards you order, the lower the price per card. By combining multiple cards into one run, you benefit from a lower unit price, plus you don’t have to pay the usual extra design charges.

If you run an events company for example, this is a great opportunity to combine multiple events into one print run: branding your cloakroom tags or entry passes to each individual specific event, rather than having one generic one.

Or if you have different Cloakrooms, like the Hippodrome Casino for example, you can colour code them to suit.

Hotel companies with multiple hotels can get each hotel’s key cards produced at the same time and achieve considerable cost savings.

We often find hotels use the design change to produce seasonal key cards – advertising their Christmas or New Year offers for example.


How to take advantage of the offer

This offer isn’t available online. Simply call us and mention this promotion at the time of ordering, and we’ll send you a custom quote.

The small print

This promotion only applies to a run of ‘like-for-like’ cards or custom printed products. You can’t split the order between multiple types of cards, e.g. between Cloakroom tags with a hole punch and plastic cards with embossed numbering.

Fluorescent plastic cards & why they’re brilliant

Plastic cards that can’t be ignored – even in the dark

You might not choose lurid fluorescent yellow for your next lot of business cards, but having a card that leaps out at you in the gloom is extremely handy in certain situations.

Bar tabs & cloakroom tags

Fluorescent plastic cards stand out & are more difficult to lose

Down you go to the Cellar bar for a much needed gin and tonic.

Then follows a few embarrassing moments scrabbling around trying to locate your bar tab card, eventually resolved by shining your phone camera light into your bag (queue building behind).

Repeat the same process upstairs when you’re trying to pick up your jacket from the cloakroom.

Fluorescent plastic cards are perfect for bars and clubs, making it easy for you – and the bar person – to find them.

We’ve recently printed some bar tab cards for the Club at the House of St Barnabas in London’s Soho because they wanted something that would stand out. Job done.

Theatres/cinemas and any sort of ‘after dark’ show

Same principle applies here really. As well as making great tickets (much easier to check seat numbers in the dark), they’re ideal for staff in these kinds of settings, making them easy to spot.


Fluorescent plastic cards are perfect for festivals that stretch into the evenings, for both security staff and festival-goers. They make it much easier to check tickets, identify people and locate the tickets in the first place. That, and a fluorescent audience is going to look kinda cool in the photos.

In the workplace

If you have staff working in lower light situations, fluorescent plastic cards are the ideal platform for health & safety details, helpline numbers or any other important information. Even if it’s not low light, they’ll certainly stand out.

Available in yellow, orange, green or pink

On school trips

We’ve noticed that schools are using the cards on school outings; their high visibility making it easy to spot and count children.

Promotional use

If there’s a lot of ‘noise’ around you from other companies or brands, for example during Fresher’s Week when you’re trying to promote your offer above everyone else’s, fluorescent plastic cards will help you stand out. They’ll be there shouting ‘look at me! look at me!’ whilst everyone else’s cards are quietly whispering their wares.

Print your own, or have them printed for you

You can buy packs of fluorescent plastic cards for use in your own plastic card printer very inexpensively. We sell 100 Fotodek Fluorescent cards in green, yellow, orange or pink for just £24. These are the same thickness as a standard credit card. We would recommend you print mono on them – ideally black, to get the best results.

However if you’re printing larger quantities, or want to include a magnetic stripe or signature strip, you’re best having them professionally printed. If this is something you’re interested in, please contact our friendly team for a quote.
