Just how thick are our plastic cards?

It’s a question we’re often asked. Plastic cards thicknesses are measured in microns. Which then prompts the next question: ‘what’s a micron’?

Basically, the thickness of a standard credit card is 760 microns. The majority of our plastic cards are 760 microns, so if you’re buying membership cards, loyalty cards or ID cards you can expect them to feel exactly like a normal store or credit card. Some, like our discount cards are 680 microns which is slightly thinner, which allows us to offer them at exceptional value.

Rest assured all our cards are made from high quality plastic, and because they don’t contain a cardboard inner like many other card suppliers, they are very durable.
