Wood is a natural product so by its very nature each card produced will be slightly different depending on the grains of the particular piece of wood.
Bamboo is the most sustainable of materials due to how quickly it grows, but it’s also a much softer material as it’s technically a grass. It is less robust and durable than the other woods, so you can expect more ‘bend’ in the cards. You’ll also get far greater variations in colour and finish when using Bamboo. If consistency of design and print is important to you, we suggest considering Cherry, Birch or Beech instead. Cherry is the hardest wearing.
Printing or Engraving?
You can choose to have your cards printed or laser engraved or include a combination of both.
- Engraving is best for simple designs and limited text. You can expect greater variations between the look of each card.
- Printing is suitable for more complex designs and multiple or small text. We recommend print where legibility and consistency of print finish is important.
Don’t worry if you don’t have artwork to upload right now. It’s often best to talk to us about getting the best result from your cards first.
