Or you might be looking for...

PVC

We can supply you with PVC cards for use with your own desktop card printers, either blank white or PVC with magstripe (Hi Co or Lo Co) or even with a barcode or QR code. Take a look at our range of PVC cards.

Memory

Memory cards are popular high-security alternatives to magstripe cards in markets such as loyalty rewards programs, school meals, laundry, car-parking, closed e-purse schemes and cashless vending. One key reason for the growth of memory cards is the fact they cost significantly less than microprocessor-based cards. When the number of deployed cards is large, the cost savings can be significant. Take a look at our range of memory cards.
