At Variuscard, our customers’ old cards and production residuals are recycled and returned to the material cycle. This is how useful things such as cable sheathing or plastic pipes are made of it. And the base substrate for our plastic cards is already made of 15% recycelt PVC.
The substrate for our PVC cards consists of 70-100% recycled material. This means that most of our standard PVC plastic cards are made of recycled material. By using recycled substrate, Variuscard sets a clear sign for sustainable merchandise management.

Small and very small print runs as well as sample prints can be produced in digital printing in an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way. It can be printed directly from the computer, without additional printing plates. With digital printing machines it is possible to print on demand only what is needed. Overproduction is thus avoided.
At every step of the process, we try to use resources as sparingly as possible and use environmental-friendly water-based printing inks for our presses.
With our 30-strong team we strengthen the business location and are proud of the fact that our production takes place 100% in Austria. Despite the high competitive pressure, it is important to us to leave the company Variuscard in Vienna and not to have it produced abroad at low cost. With a purchase at Variuscard you also support Austria as a business location.
