    Okay, okay, bad joke (been in the main forum too long). Recto=rectum....nm :o

    At any cost, I think a printer like that is what you are looking for. The clear business cards (looks like ID cards/credit cards based on your link) are probably just stock from the supplier, AMEX uses similar stuff with their 'blue' credit card.

    http://www.dallascardworks.com/pp_business_cards.htm

    500 cards for 114 (1 color)
    500 cards for 178 (2 color)

    100 cards for 70 frosted, full color (they can send physical proof)
    250 cards for 120 frosted, full color (they can send physical proof)
    500 cards for 190 frosted, full color (they can send PHYSICAL PROOF)

    (the prices are if you submit your own art, which is 10$ cheaper)

    I'm not so sure you can make these. It seems to me like they have sheets of this material and they use a die cutter (plotter like machine) and cut it into the business card formats and rount the corners with it. It doesn't seem like it'd be hard to adapt current business card machinery into handling plastic cards. :dunno:

    Sorry, it costs $30 to add rounded corners to 500 cards. Didn't see that. Still cheaper than your other link. :hsugh: I think CC's have 1/8" rounded

    I think by the time you order the cards, ink/paper (whatever it uses), it would be cheaper to have someone else make them. The plastic in small quantities isn't as cheap as the bulk they probably pay for them.

    cool nonetheless.
