Card personalisation

About this service

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.

Atlantic Zeiser

Our custom built premises are equipped with the very latest in card personalisation technology.  Following a major period of investment in this area, we became the first in Europe to install an Atlantic Zeiser DoD UV inkjet system capable of offering personalisation in white as well as black.

The Atlantic Zeiser DoD is capable of personalising, encoding and attaching labels to cards at speeds of up to 30,000 cards per hour.


Digital VDP

As well as printing variable data (names, numbers etc) onto finished cards, we can also use our digital print capabilities to personalise cards at the point of print, using HP’s SmartStream software and our HP Indigo digital press. Whether this be personalised text or images for photo ID cards, or completely unique card designs.

Data Processing

We recognise that although our customers may have data they can supply to us for card personalisation, it may only be formatted for their own in-house requirements and not necessarily suited to ours.  Wherever possible, we aim to format, collate and cleanse (if required) the source data so that your final personalised cards and accompanied mailings are exactly how you envisage.

Anything from a sequential number range, to barcode and magnetic stripe encoding can often be produced without the requirement to even supply us with any data.  We can also pre-sort larger batches of mailing data to enable you to save money on postage.
