Plastic Card Personalisation
Advanced Card Bureau Ltd uses thermal printing techniques (flat printing to the card) which is a process that enables us to print anything you can imagine onto the surface of a plastic card (front or back).
You can personalise the cards using variable data such as:
- Numbers (Account, Membership, Sequential, etc)
- Magnetic Encode Data
Advanced Card Bureau Ltd offers a card embossing service. We can emboss and/or encode variable data such as names, numbers, expiry dates on all types of plastic cards.
The embossing is then tipped using a coloured foil. The most common colours for plastic card embossing are black, white, silver and gold. There are two standard types of card embossing:
- OCR – the larger size (5mm) and is used for embossing numbers only, up to a maximum of 19 characters across.
- Simplex – 3mm in height and is used for both lettering and numbering to a maximum of 27 characters across.
These are the standard fonts used on credit cards.
