We offer various types of personalisation to meet your individual requirements for your smart card, gift card or loyalty card.

We use thermal transfer printing, among others, for printing barcodes and lettering, and thermal sublimation printing for images. We apply serial numbers using tamper-proof laser engraving.

Our full-colour DoD inkjet process is particularly efficient in printing large volumes of cards with high-quality text and images.

Letter shop

Letter shop

Whether mailing your customer cards to users, your company ID cards to employees or cover letters with supplementary inserts to customers – we ensure that your personalised mailings or customer benefits are sent out securely and in time.

If your products require banding, our state-of-the-art banding machines will take care of this as part of the packaging process. We use our high-performance laser printers for single-sheet and continuous formats to create mailings. Cards for mailings are directly integrated with our dispensing machines.

Our online processes ensure that personalised cards are reliably matched with your corresponding cover letters.

The mailing volume does not play a decisive role in this process – we are very flexible in terms of meeting our customers’ requirements. We finish mailings by placing up to six inserts into envelopes in various formats, and we take care of IT franking for you. We work with efficient logistics partners for national and international dispatch.

Sustainable materials

Dealing responsibly with our environment is particularly important to us. As an alternative to plastic cards, we offer environmentally friendly recycled materials as well as highly sustainable products made of biodegradable yet durable materials such as bio-PVC.

Recycled PVC Cards

Recycled PVC cards are an environmentally friendly, sustainable alternative to conventional plastic cards.

Grass cards

Grass cards are real eye-catchers thanks to their unique texture, and they clearly demonstrate your company’s sensitivity to environmental issues.

Cards made from bio-PVC
