Mailing

Card Service executes all card personalization and mailing jobs in our well equipped service bureau. Here we have installations taking care of card printing, encoding and mailing in a completely automated process. All cards and letters are one by one electronically checked before stuffed in an envelope. This is not only a very efficient way of production, it also avoids mistakes caused by manual handling.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plastic card embossing

Cards can also be embossed. The letters in relief allow, by the use of a simple imprinter, the transfer of card holder data to paper. Badge card printers and chip cards have made embossing nearly obsolete. However, until to-day embossing is considered to be the more noble art of card personalization.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Metal embossing

The embossing technology for plastic cards is, in a stronger version, also used for the embossing of metal plates. The marking of embossed metal plates makes sense in those cases where conventional labels with product information cannot be used. This is for example the case when a product needs to receive a surface treatment such as galvanizing or painting. Another requirement may be the resistance to acids or high temperatures, which make most labeling methods inappropriate.

Some application examples of embossed metal plates are:

  • Product labeling during galvanizing and painting process
  • Serial number plates on motor vehicles
  • Marking of fire resistant doors and windows.

Embossed plates are made in our service bureau according to customer specifications.

Embossing equipment is also installed at the customer’s site.
