We offer a full card embossing service. We can emboss variable data such as names, numbers, expiry dates on various types of plastic cards. The embossing is then tipped using a coloured foil. The most common colours for plastic card embossing are silver and gold. There are two standard types of card embossing: OCR - the larger size (5mm) and is used for embossing numbers only, up to a maximum of 19 characters across. Simplex - 3mm in height and is used for both lettering and numbering to a maximum of 27 characters across. These are the standard fonts used on credit cards. Specific card designs or card applications can be enhanced by embossing as a form of card personalization. Embossed data is colour tipped as standard in a variety of colour choices using the best available, durable and high quality foil.
