Plastic cards have become a popular way to store and access various types of information, making them essential in many industries such as banking, healthcare, and hospitality. One type of plastic card that is often used in these industries is the magnetic stripe card. However, the addition of a variable barcode, human-readable number, signature panel, and scratch off panel can make these cards even more useful. In this article, we will explore where and for what these cards can be used when equipped with a magnetic stripe, human-readable number, signature panel, and scratch off panel.
A magnetic stripe is a strip of magnetic material located on the back of a plastic card that can store data. When swiped through a card reader, the magnetic stripe can quickly and accurately transfer information. This makes magnetic stripe cards ideal for applications where fast, secure data transfer is necessary. Some common uses for magnetic stripe cards include:
Credit and debit cards: Many banks issue magnetic stripe cards to their customers for easy and secure transactions.
Loyalty and rewards programs: Businesses can use magnetic stripe cards to keep track of customer purchases and offer rewards for repeat business.
Access control: Magnetic stripe cards can be used as access control cards for secure areas such as office buildings, hospitals, and research facilities.
A variable barcode is a type of barcode that can store varying amounts of data, depending on the application. These barcodes can be easily read by barcode scanners, making them ideal for applications where data needs to be quickly and accurately collected. Some common uses for variable barcode cards include:
Inventory management: Variable barcode cards can be used to track inventory in retail and warehouse environments.
Event ticketing: Many event venues issue variable barcode tickets for easy access and crowd control.
Identification: Variable barcode cards can be used as identification badges for employees or students.
A human-readable number is a number that is printed on the card in a format that is easy for people to read. This number can be used to quickly identify the cardholder, making it an essential component of many plastic cards. Some common uses for human-readable number cards include:
Identification: Human-readable numbers can be used to quickly identify the cardholder, making them ideal for employee badges and student IDs.
Membership cards: Many organizations issue membership cards with human-readable numbers to their members for easy identification.
Loyalty programs: Businesses can use human-readable number cards to track customer purchases and offer rewards for repeat business.
A signature panel is an area on the back of a plastic card that is designed for the cardholder to sign their name. This signature can be used to verify the cardholder’s identity and prevent fraudulent transactions. Some common uses for signature panel cards include:
Credit and debit cards: Many credit and debit cards feature a signature panel to verify the cardholder’s identity during transactions.
Identification: Signature panels can be used on employee badges and student IDs to verify the cardholder’s identity.
Membership cards: Many organizations issue membership cards with signature panels to their members for easy identification.
Scratch Off Panel
A scratch off panel is a special coating on the card that can be scratched off to reveal a hidden message or code. This can be used for security or promotional purposes. Some common uses for scratch off panel cards include:
Gift cards: Many gift cards feature a scratch off panel that reveals the card’s value.
Promotions: Scratch off panels can be used for promotional purposes, such as offering discounts or prizes.
Security: Scratch off panels can be used for security purposes, such as hiding PIN codes on credit or debit cards.
The dark strip labelling that you see on the back of gift cards, loyalty cards, membership cards, and coupon cards is known as a ‘Magnetic Stripe‘. Alongside a POS system, these plastic cards, with the aid of the magnetic stripe, are also used in access control. They come in two main varieties: high-coercivity (HiCo) and low-coercivity (LoCo).
Signature panels allow customers to have the ability to write on the plastic surface of the cards. Various dimensions can all be custom fit with the number of panels you require, whether you are looking for a more modern/casual look or more authentic in appearance. Depending on the customer’s needs, we can create any element that fits their personal agenda for the product they wish us to work on.
When a code is required to access the card value, custom scratch offs cards are the perfect solution. Scratch off card printing has been used in the phone card industry for decades, and has now gained popularity with gift cards and loyalty cards.
