Product description

- About the card

Nothing standard here!

Suitable for a number of applications from membership, loyalty, gift and hotel, to reward, discount and business cards plus many more, the opportunities to propel your brand with a plastic card are endless.

Adding names, numbers, signature panels or other pertinent information to your cards, as well as the option to enhance the functionality through the addition of barcodes and magnetic stripes (which you can choose to be encoded) can set your brand apart from your competitors. Simply upload your data in a .CSV format and apply it direct to your design ensuring your cards are truly unique to your business.

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.


A barcode is a machine readable representation of data. Unique barcodes can be included to your cards, choosing from a range of barcode ‘types’ to allow additional functionality on your system. Typical examples would be gift cards, loyalty cards, membership cards etc. Barcodes will be printed in black on a white background to ensure the optimum readability with a 3mm ‘clear zone’.

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.

Variable Data

A data file can be uploaded (.csv format) allowing you to add personalised text to each card such as unique numbers, names, barcodes etc. Simply upload your file, indicate which fields you require and position them on the card in a choice of font type, size and colour.
