Copper Wallet Cards
Thank you for visiting Copper Wallet Card - a Copper Art Designs production.
Our unique personalized handcrafted Copper Wallet Cards is a wonderful way to gift someone with a special saying, photo, quote, keepsake, love notes, etc. which they can carry every day.
Our ability to etch your photo, hand drawn image, or personalized information into copper is unique due to the intricate creation process which is all handcrafted and involves designing, hand-tooling, etching, natural patina and then sanded around the edges so that it is smooth to the touch and will not damage a wallet. The Copper Wallet Card is made of 100% raw recycled copper which is 20 gauge/24 oz., the estimated dimensions are (2" x 3", 5 cm x 7 cm) and is the same size as a standard credit card or business card. This special keepsake will last the test of time and copper it is a wonderful medium which will patina naturally with time. This is sure to be a cherished and long-lasting gift.

Copper Art Designs prides itself on providing one of a kind custom copper art work and commemorative art pieces made specifically for you!
Our art work or our ability to etch your commemorative art pieces (e.g. award plaques, wedding invitations, book marks, etc.) into copper is unique due to the intricate creation process which is all handcrafted and involves designing, hand-tooling and if required some natural patinas to be applied on to the copper. Our work is hand made in a small family-owned studio in Virginia Beach, Va. In-house artisans use traditional print making and chemical etching techniques to create unique works from quality materials paying close attention to detail and professional craftsmanship.
… --- === [ Our Production ] === --- …
Chemically etching copper is a centuries old process by which designs are positioned on a copper plate and laid in a chemical bath that slowly eats away at the metal to form designs in its surface. Patinas and fills are then applied to accent the design. Pieces are then finalized with a protective durable lacquer or wax which provides tarnish protection as well as superior resistance to UV light, salt air environments, and most chemicals.
Due to the unpredictable nature of our process, each piece has its own characteristics that cannot be replicated. The smooth or rough textures and subtle hues are created based on elements such as weather conditions and application of specific organic chemicals applied for various durations. The etched surfaces of a finished piece will have slight imperfections giving a rustic appearance. You may see several pinholes and lifted areas on your piece. More often than not, these “imperfections” add beauty and texture to the finished piece.
Our goal is to provide you with a life-enhancing product that fits your personal style and that honors your home or office decor.
Typically on commemorative art pieces (e.g. award plaques, wedding invites, book marks, etc.) are ordered without any patina, it is in its natural copper state. After the design has been etched into the recycled copper, the Wedding invitation, Award Plaques, etc are adhered with 100% natural leather material for final presentation. We also add a special U/V protective coating and wax to guard the copper from continuing to patina. The final commemorative art pieces can then be displayed using an easel or pictured framed at your convenience.

Chemically etching copper is a centuries old process. Designs are positioned on a copper plate and laid in a chemical bath that slowly eats away at the metal and transforms the designs into the copper's surface.
This technique was originally used primarily for print making. Etched copper plates would be inked and then used to stamp news print or other various print materials.
In our production, we have taken the process to another level using the copper as the canvas to display the etchings as artwork. Patinas and fills are applied to accent our designs.
Our copper pieces are finalized with a protective durable lacquer/wax which provides tarnish protection as well as superior resistance to UV light and salt air environments.
