Identity should be seen
Only personalisation makes the card function as an ID-medium and turn it into an individual loyalty, customer, or ID-card. The term “visual personalisation” covers all visually perceivable print-ons of numbers, names, PIN-codes or passport photos. Detailed information on the methods, their possibilities and capacity can be found under Printing Methods.
Personalisation Methods on Laminate
Personalisation data is usually printed onto the pre-printed or white card (blanks). Thermo transfer, thermo sublimation and retransfer printing are very common methods for this. Embossing is another method known from credit cards and is appreciated because of its fine optics. Plasticard-ZFT also offers these methods for VIP- or membership cards and for the embossing of braille. By lasering names or photos, even higher security and durability requirements can be met. For this, the cards need to have a special laser-capable overlay material. An overview of all personalisation methods can be found in the basics under Printing Methods. As a service, Plasticard-ZFT offers all personalisation options in the initial provision and for the later re-provisions up to the production of minimal quantities. The storing of card blanks is hereby always for free.
