Professional Sales Consultancy and Graphic Design Services combine to ensure that your cards are built to your specific requirements, including:

  • Card Substrate – Intended life of card, environment, and other factors determine card substrate. CardLogix sales consultants help you select the right substrate for your application.
  • Card Technology – Experts in smart cards and secure technologies, CardLogix evaluates multiple card technology options for safely storing, transacting, and managing your data. CardLogix state-of-the-art chip embedding equipment and printing machines make it possible to combine multiple technologies onto one card for hybrid/combo cards, including:
    • Contactless RFID/NFC and Prox technologies
    • M.O.S.T., JAVA, MIFARE, and other smart chip card technologies
      (contact, contactless, or dual-interface)
    • Magnetic stripes
    • 1D/2D barcodes
  • Primary Artwork – The background artwork that every card shares is printed or engraved while the cards are manufactured, usually using a lithographic printing process. CardLogix sales consultants evaluate your company’s artwork to ensure optimal dimensions, colors and specifications unique to card manufacturing. For custom artwork, CardLogix offers professional graphic design services.
  • Security Graphics – Guilloche, microtext, holograms, and laser engraving are among the many security graphics options available to prevent fraud. We help you choose the right combination for your application. For unique, custom designs, CardLogix offers professional graphic design services.
  • Personalization– CardLogix offers both graphic personalization and electronic personalization services. Graphic personalization, also known as variable data or image printing,  includes images, serial numbers, or text unique to each card body and cardholder. Electronic personalization refers to the digital information that gets programmed (encoded) to card technologies, such as smart card chips, magnetic stripes, or barcodes. CardLogix sales consultants help you determine whether our in-house personalization services or one of our partners’ desktop card printers with CardLogix’ software solutions would be best suited for your needs.
  • Programming – CardLogix offers an extensive portfolio of in-house smart chip card programming services from simple scripts for I2C non-volatile memory cards to loading Java applets, variable data, and formatting card operating systems.
