With print24.com, you can have gift or shopping vouchers printed for your business. You can choose between simple plastic cards or more elaborate print products with a magnetic strip or smart card, which can be loaded with credit over and over again.

You need it – We supply it
At print24.com, you can choose from five different versions of plastic cards. The simplest variant is the plastic card without any extra functions. This is suitable as a simple membership card.
If you need chip cards, we have two different versions available. The FM4442 chip card is a medium with an integrated storage capacity of 256 bytes. This form is perfect for identification purposes and suitable as a bonus card for marketing actions. For extra security, this card possesses PIN protection
The FM24C02 chip card also offers 256-byte storage capacity to be used for marketing or security purposes. The standard chip can be described or read on an open system. To read both chip card versions, both appropriate reading/writing devices and the right software are needed.
Plastic cards with magnetic strips are available at print24.com in two versions. As a HiCo (high coercivity) magnetic strip, your plastic card can store data for a longer time because the magnetic strip is much more robust. Identity or security cards are often provided with this kind of magnetic strip. LoCo (low coercivity) magnetic strips, in contrast, posses a lower flux density. This is the reason why these magnetic cards are used when the data on them changes frequently, for example, for daily access changes to hotel rooms.
A special variant of the plastic cards printable here are RFID cards. The use of "radio frequency identification" allows, say, the users of these cards to provide contactless identification. The data on the chip can actually be read by means of radio waves at a frequency of 13.56 MHz up to a distance of 10 cm. This form of plastic cards is in common use today for student identity cards, library passes, time recording systems and access controls.
Robust material and perfect processing – ready for daily use
All plastic cards, whether equipped with chip, magnetic strip or RFID technology, are made at print24.com from top-quality plastic. This is then laminated to give the cards the sturdiness they need for daily use. You have the choice of ordering your plastic cards either lacquered or matt laminated.
We print all plastic card on both sides in landscape format using the 4/4 CMYK printing process. The format of the cards is always 85.6 x 54 mm. This way, these cards can be comfortably kept in credit card cases and provided with standard covers.
On request, we can also equip your plastic cards with other functions. We can equip chip cards with a magnetic strip or a field for the user's signature. In addition, we can include a round or slotted hole at the top of the card for attaching the card to a key ring. We can also equip your magnetic cards with a writable field as well as a round or slotted hole on the left side. The most feature variants (writable field, LoCo magnetic strip, round hole at top / on left side, slotted hole at top / on left side) are available when printing simple plastic cards. Either a magnetic strip or a writable field can be added to RFID cards.
Hologram security feature and other refinings
If you want magnetic or plastic cards for your membership cards or other products printed at print24.com, you can choose between various refining and security options. For example, you can select a hologram on the left or right side as well as a holographic foil on the left or right side for your cards. This makes them better protected against forgery. We use laser technology to insert the hologram into the card. You have two designs to choose from (VIP and a globe). You are free to choose the form of the holographic foil. The hologram embossing ensues in gold or silver. Other refining possibilities available are hot embossing, embossing on the left/right side as well as a thermal transfer print on the left/right side.
We can recommend a jojo in a small version or oval in black or white-transparent as a practical accessory. As protection for the cards, you can also order a high quality identity-card holder in portrait format or a soft PVC cover in portrait or landscape format. If your plastic cards are to be used at trade fairs or in companies for employee identification, then we offer practical metal clips with a plastic or textile buckle, which you can choose in the configuration menu.
View beforehand what the plastic card looks like: screenproof
On request and for a small extra charge, we create a digital preview of your print configuration in a 150 dpi resolution. We then save this file in your customer account. We notify you on this and you can immediately view the image on your computer. If you are satisfied with it, you can then conveniently start the print order via the customer menu. If you don't like the preview and want to cancel the order, you can do so without incurring extra costs – except for the creation of the screenproof. If you wish to make changes, then just create a new print order for your plastic cards. For practical reasons, a screenproof can only be created once per order. Please also note when assessing the preview that subsequent differences to the original print product may occur.
