PVC Plastic Cards vs. Composite Plastic Cards (Teslin)
What is the difference between PVC and Composite Plastic Cards?

compare PVC and Composite Teslin plastic cards

Back To Price List

Composite Plastic Cards (Teslin):  Our composite Teslin cards are photo-quality and extremely durable. Since your design and variable information (barcodes, numbers, etc.) are protected with a laminate your cards will look virtually brand new even after extended use, and you have no risk of your barcodes of other variable data scratching off over time.

Produced with a polyester (Teslin) core, composite cards are more durable and resistant to cracking prematurely. They are made with a synthetic material as the core of a card, and are then laminated with polyester on both sides, making them extremely durable.

PVC Plastic Cards (poly-vinyl chloride):  Nearly all credit cards (Visa, Master card, etc.) are made of PVC, as they are the least expensive when made in larger volumes. PVC cards are stiffer than composite teslin, so a 30 mil PVC Card may “feel” somewhat thicker than a 30 mil composite card, although they are actually both the same thickness. Although PVC is durable, they are not as flexible, so they can develop a crease and eventually crack in half. They also have no protection. If used on a regular basis they tend to scratch. If your card design contains photos, barcodes, etc., they will become damaged with frequent use.
