Our magnetic stripe hotel key cards are produced with a DDA Notch (6mm) to assist blind or partially sighted people as suggested for use on hotel key cards by the European Disability Discrimination Act (2004).
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.
Our hotel key cards are the size of a regular credit card. 85.6mm wide by 54mm high. This is quite a small canvas so please make sure all aspects of your design are visible and that you have allowed for a 1.1mm bleed on all edges.
Magnetic stripes can be added to your cards to allow subsequent unique encoding to each card. Magnetic stripes are read by swiping through a reading head (such as door access entry or till systems). Choose from Loco or Hico formats. The position of the stripe is fixed to ensure compatibility with encoding/reading systems.
This is a Disability Discrimination Act card designed with a notch in the edge, designed to assist partially sighted users to insert the card in the correct direction. This is often used with hotel room key cards.
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.
