Design Options
Our printers offer the ability to create custom cards ideally tailored to the application or to customize and personalize cards on demand. Cards provide numerous technological features, but start with a blank plastic card that can be printed with any combination of artwork, graphics, text, digital photograph, bar codes, logos, etc., limited only by the designer's imagination. Additional machine readable information can also be encoded such as magnetic stripes and smart card chips. Cards can be produced in a variety of colors and sizes, depending on your individual preference and needs. Simply discuss with a PlastiCard Bureau representative how you would like your cards to appear visually, and he/she will print a sample for your review at no charge.

Pricing for card production varies depending on a number of factors. A Bureau representative will quote a price after discussing card specifications and quantities with you.

Getting Started On Your Cards
Card design and production is a simple process. We outline the steps you will take as follows:

  1. Think about what function your card will have—this will help a PlastiCard representative meet your needs. In other words, what will the card be used for? Security? Identification? In addition to the card's function, think about what you would like the card to look like. Would you prefer white or colored cards? Do you require full-color text and graphics or monochrome?
  2. Discuss the function and visual layout of your card with a Bureau representative.
  3. Review the sample card and express any changes you require. Changes will be made and cards printed.
