The complete card solution
We continue to invest heavily in new card-based technology ensuring that we can offer the most up-to-date and efficient service for our customers and provide an end-to-end solution for card schemes.
Our dedicated digital and lithographic manufacturing facilities each house state-of-the-art card production and finishing equipment giving us the ability to add magnetic stripes and signature panels as well as enhanced finishes such as metallic and special inks, matt/gloss lamination and surface finishes including spot UV, foil print and edging.
We appreciate that card scheme requirements vary enormously, which is why we offer an extensive choice of card personalisation options including embossing, encoding, barcoding, 2D codes, thermal printing, “Drop on Demand” printing, inkjet printing and thermal re-transfer.
We offer a holistic service for your card scheme – match mounting, inserting into liveried envelopes and mailing completed packs directly to customers. All our systems are supported by in-line verification to allow for continuous production whilst offering offline verification for batch QC checking. With both Lake Image and Kirk Rudy camera matching systems being used giving 100% accuracy and assurances to our customers.
All artwork is proofed prior to print production, and nothing will go ahead until we have client approval providing peace of mind that the end product will meet expectations. We offer our clients a choice of proofs – PDF document for speed; a calibrated pre-press wet proof; a plastic wet proof or a fully finished card.
