Many companies have areas that are only accessible to accredited employees. They often use smart cards that meet the FM4442 standard to control entrance rights. Up to 256 bytes of data can be stored on these cards, for example personal details that are scanned upon entering a given area.

So many ways to use printed smart cards
Company smart cards can also be used to record hours worked, or for marketing purposes. Many customer loyalty programmes in retail stores work with FM4442 smart cards, for instance. And they can be given PIN protection to raise their level of security. At print24.com you can have 85.6 x 54 millimetre smart cards printed with your motifs: company logos, slogans or the names of company departments. The robust material we use – top-quality laminated and white PVC – ensures the smart cards last.
Printing with the CMYK process and silver
You have numerous different options for printing motifs on your smart cards. With the CMYK four-colour printing procedure, lettering, logos, the name of the card holder and even photos are all possible. Having motifs printed in silver and CMYK gives you an additional colour option. We print on both the front and the back of the cards.
When entering your printing data in the configurator, don't forget to specify whether you want the chip to be placed on the right or the left of the card. As we do for all our printed products, we can offer you a screen proof of your smart cards for a small surcharge. This digital preview can be very useful, for example if you want to see how a design will look on the smart cards before having them printed. When you make your choice, the print order can be sent directly from the customer menu. If you like the result, you can continue with the print job. If you are not satisfied, you can change the order and send the new print-version back to us.
Numerous extras for your printed smart cards
If you like, we can further process your plastic cards after they have been printed. This gives you the chance to have us add a magnetic stripe or a writing field to the card. Writing fields are important if members of a club or company have to identify themselves with their signature, for instance. You can also have a round or elongated hole punched into your smart cards, so that their users can hang them on a lanyard or keyring.
print24.com also offers a selection of protective sleeves for your customer or employee smart cards. And you can also have a round or oval chip-card yo-yo or metal clips added to help affix the card.
