Biodegradable Plastic Cards.

Fully branded to your design, front and back.

If you're looking for a more sustainable alternative to your plastic cards, swapping to our ECO-Bio Biodegradable Plastic Cards is a better choice for the planet without impacting on your budget.

Priced similarly to our regular plastic cards, these cards can be fully customised with a range of features and finishes available.

Biodegradable and Recyclable Properties
These custom printed PVC cards are produced with an additive that makes them fully degradable. They will degrade in microbe rich environments such as biologically active landfill. They can also be recycled where such facilities exist. They provide the same print quality as regular plastic cards, but unlike virgin plastics, these cards will degrade over time.

Biodegradable Cards Common FAQs

Get answers to questions about our printed Biodegradable Cards.

What’s the difference between biodegradable and recycled?

Biodegradable plastic cards are made with an additive that makes them degrade over time, provided they are in a microbe rich environment such as biologically active landfill.

Recycled cards are made from a proportion of recycled plastic material (the amount depends on the make-up) but will not degrade over time.

Do you do an off-the-shelf blank RFID card that’s recycled?

Yes. Our ECOCARD-85 is made from 85% recycled plastic and has a 1K RFID chip.

Can plastic cards be recycled?

How and where plastic cards can be recycled depends on what material the card is made from.

Virgin plastic (PVC) can be recycled where facilities exist, but not in standard household waste. This is usually done through specialist recycling providers that process the plastic into pellets that can be moulded into new products.

If the card is made from PET material (the same that’s used in plastic bottles) they can be recycled in normal household waste. These cards will usually be clearly labelled as PET.

Plastic cards made with a biodegradable additive will naturally degrade in microbe rich environments such as biologically active landfill.

Bear in mind that if the cards if a contactless card, the RFID chip will not be recyclable, and if there is special foiling or added features on the card, these will likely not be recyclable either.

Can you set my artwork for me?

Yes. We offer a Design and Art working service for £25.

You can select this when buying our products online or give us a call for more information.

How long will it take to get my cards?

Unless otherwise stated, our standard turnaround time is 10 working days from card proof approval.

When you've signed off the card proof we will get your printed cards to you within 10 working days.

This doesn't apply to printed RFID cards or wood cards, and to highly bespoke orders (for example where bespoke foiling is required).

These will take a little longer. Please ask for details when placing your order.

I’m in a rush, do you do fast track?

Where available, you can upgrade to our Fast Track 5-working day turnaround for an extra £50.

Again, this is 5 working days from sign-off of the card proof.

Please remember this doesn't apply to printed smart cards or highly bespoke orders. Please check with us before ordering.

How do I get my artwork to you?

As soon as we receive your order we’ll be in touch to arrange getting your artwork.

Can you send me some card samples to check before I order?

Yes. Get in touch, let us know what type of cards you’re interested in and we’ll send you some samples in the post.

Do you do different quantities to those listed?

Absolutely. Get in touch and we’ll send you a custom quote.
