Craft Introduction

What is brushed?

It refers to the decorative lines (formed by grinding craft ) on the product surface. And the finish with brushed lines is called the brushed finish which has been more and more popular because of its unique texture. The brushed craft can be applied to the PVC, metal, and paper material, among which, the common brushed metal include the copper, stainless steel, aluminium, etc. 

Operation Details

Metal Card – it is formed by the machine grinding, that is to say, put it into the machine (brushed machine), the card surface will get the brushed lines under the machine pressure. 

Paper Card – directly use the brushed paper as the card surface. 

PVC Card – add the brushed film (the brushed lines and other designs are silk printed on this film) to the PVC card surface or directly use the brushed PVC material ( the brushed lines are formed by the brushed machine’s pressure ). 

Attention Please

Don’t scratch it with sharp objects to make it damaged manually.
