Product description

- About the card

Generic Smart Cards

As Mifare accredited partners, we offer the Mifare Classic 1K or Mifare Classic 4K chips in our generic smart card products. Once you have chosen the correct chip you can brand, upload and create your design so that each individual card is identical. You can also add signature panels and magnetic stripes (not encoded) and choose between a matt or gloss finish. Please note the chips will not be encoded.

Cards purchased through the Hub website are digitally printed on a HP Indigo 5900 press in our own purpose built manufacturing facility, and are made using standard PVC with a 760 micron thickness.

The Possibilities

Magnetic Stripe Encoding

This is the process used to encode unique data on to your magnetic stripe. Our system allows you to encode ‘Track 2’ of the stripe with a unique number – simply upload your data file and select the relevant field. Magnetic stripes are available in both low-coercivity (Loco) or high-coercivity (Hico) formats – Hico is more resistant to external magnetic damage. It is important to check the compatibility and encoding requirements of your reader / system – if in doubt, please ask.

Matt or Gloss Finish

Choose your finish, matt (silk) or gloss (shiny) at no extra cost. N.B. we recommend a matt finish for black or dark designs as gloss tends to show scratches more on dark cards.

Signature Panels

Signature panels can be applied to your cards to enable the end user to handwrite personal information such as name, signature etc. They will be printed in white, any size or shape and you can add multiple panels to the card if required. Please allow a 3mm ‘clear zone’ around your signature panels to avoid over-writing important design features.

Mifare Classic EV1 1K or 4K

Contactless, RFID cards (radio frequency identification) containing ‘smart chips’ are secure, quick and convenient to use with contactless reader systems. 1K or 4K relates to the amount of memory on the chip. It is important to check which type is compatible with your system/reader before ordering – if in doubt, please ask.
