Fast Turnaround of Small Quantity Plastic Cards is New From Cards-In-A-Flash(SM) by CARDSource
New web printing service offers card manufacturing, personalization, packaging and mailing
EAGAN, Minn., June 15, 2011 (PaymentsMarket) -- Is your business starting a loyalty card, gift card or membership card program but you're unsure how to use plastic cards to reward, motivate or track customers? Looking for a low-risk option for printing as few as 50 or more than 5,000 plastic cards?
Fast production of small quantity plastic cards, discount cards and other promotional cards are now available from Cards-In-A-Flash(SM) by CARDSource. Turnaround time is seven business days or less, at an affordable cost, with design services available.
Unlike other short-run printers with web-only businesses, customers of Cards-In-A-Flash by CARDSource receive strategic card consultation by phone to ensure the custom plastic card will meet business goals. Examples include:
- plastic membership cards that feed data into a current or future point-of-sale (POS) system, such as a health club that tracks membership and gift card activation/redemption;
- customer-created designs that generate more retail store traffic by adding strategic card elements, such as magnetic strips or bar codes;
- direct mail packages with personalized cards and letters to drive customer sales; and,
- ideas for how a business card design can make a bigger impression than a paper card, such as clear substrates or embossing.
Card manufacturing options include: white and clear PVC substrates, full-color and/or spot-color printing, and various card thicknesses. All products are laminated for the highest quality, longest life card or key tag.
"For over 35 years, CARDSource has served larger volume card users with the production, personalization, packaging and distribution of their plastic card products — and that same quality and service is now available to small-volume users," saysGary Smythe, president of CARDSource. "With just-in-time printing, customers can order smaller quantities every time they change their message or on an as-needed basis, which eliminates purchasing higher quantities for price breaks and storing larger quantities."
