Typically, once the card design has been sent to the printer, the printer will then use a special heating process to transfer color from the ink ribbon onto the plastic PVC card.
In order to fully utilize gift cards or loyalty cards with technological capabilities (i.e. magnetic stripes, smart chips, or RFID), you will need to establish a Point-of-Sale (POS) system for your business so that the data encoded within the card can be matched up to information in your company’s database. RACO representatives are fully prepared to assist in setting up an on-site POS system and/or wireless/LAN infrastructure to allow you to take advantage of the benefits of card technology.
In order to produce your own cards, you will need a card printer, media (blank cards, ink ribbon, etc.), and design software that you will use to create the look of your cards. If you intend to make gift cards, loyalty cards, or any other type of card that uses a magnetic stripe or smart chip, you will need to make sure that it can be integrated into your business?s POS system. If you are not sure which equipment, supplies, or software will serve you best, RACO Card experts will be happy to help you pick out the right products for your specific needs.
