CardLogix helps you complete your smart card solution with a wide range of fulfillment services. We can help you make your card program a success through Custom Packaging, Collateral Production, Mailing and Intelligent Insertion, and Variable Data Imaging.
Cards can be shipped in a wide variety of options. Our standard packaging is 500 cards per box sleeve with tamper evident tape. A bar-coded label further identifies these smaller boxes before they are shipped in 4, 6, or 8 sleeves per carton. All cards are counted with a Spartanics Visa-approved electronic card counter and is the world’s only counting systems that double scans actual cards twice. Outer cartons are marked with an additional barcode label for easy shipping.
We can also shrink wrap in bundles of 100 or put cards in individual polybag packaging, per customer specifications. In addition to these options your program may benefit from the collateral choices shown below.
Printed pieces that carry the smart card, as well as associated flyers, brochures, etc. are created to coordinate with the <a href=”https://www.cardlogix.com/smart-card-services/card-printing-design/” title=”Custom card printing and design”>card design</a> and promote your card program. As card programs proliferate, collateral helps distinguish your card visually, adds impact to your program, and provides useful program information for your customer. We can help your program with many types of collateral. A few of the more popular types are illustrated here:
Tyvek Card Sleeves
These carriers allow for additional text and graphics that help explain how to use the card/program and promote the program itself.
Card Wallet Book
These sleeves are available in numerous designs, including Wallet, Passport, themed (Barbie, secret agent, etc.), in additional to more general designs meant for informational applications (e.g. bus and train schedules). They can have up to 28 pages for content, giving you ample room for program tie-ins, such as advertising retailers, concert tour dates, and participating partner vendors.
For mailing and distribution, the card(s) can be mounted on a literature piece or ‘carrier’. These are available with two types of folding and can be pre-printed with matching variable data.
