Custom Card Forms
An integrated card form
combination consists of a base document called a carrier, a backing and occasionally a face laminate. The form is produced by printing the carrier, applying the backing and applying the face laminate. The card is then die cut through the face and the carrier but not through the backing.
An affixed card form combination
includes a card that is applied to the sheet separately. Affixed cards can be cleanly peeled away from the base form after laser printing.
A wide variety of materials can be used for the card.
