Oyster card holders are one of the UK’s most cost effective promotional advertising tools. Our holders are considered by many astute clients to be the best in the market. Coincidentally as our holders are thicker and offer total print scratch resistance they are considered to be much better quality than lithographically printed holders in direct comparison. We produce most of the holders found on the shelves of high end UK High Street retailers.

Manufactured from phthalate free vinyl, they will hold cards or inserts of up to 86mm x 65mm in the standard option and 86mm x 55mm in the mini option. Both options having 80mm deep pocket sections to the internal face, in clear phthalate free vinyl. Our holders can be used for a vast array of applications. Everyone knows the primary use as a transport card holder, however, they are equally as good for holding cosmetic sachets, z-cards, tourist maps, product samples, as well as for every conceivable card application.

We offer low minimum order quantities, 250 on the standard product and 1,000 on the mini-option so can be used for a vast array of purposes. As multiple designs can be printed within any run (a small charge applies), we offer a very flexible solution to your or your client's requirements.

You even get a choice of outer finish. Your high quality digitally printed image/artwork is protected by a gloss or matt laminate giving you a truly scratch resistant product.

We have an array of options for the internal face of your holders, they can be supplied unlined, pinseal clear lined, black fotex lined or printed in full colour with a matching laminate to the outer face.
