Personalization of the Cardholder Information

Don’t let your cards go unnoticed in a wallet full of plastic options. Fiserv manages every part of card production while personalizing your cards.

  • Back-of-Card: Consider the flip side and give your cardholders added confidence in their card transactions. Account information positioned on the backs of cards is hidden from onlookers
  • Embossing: Let your cardholders feel the difference with an embossed finish; account information is raised above the surface of the card adding texture
  • Flat Graphics: Differentiate your brand in a crowded wallet; a smooth finish, allows your hand to glide over the surface with embedded account information
  • Laser Engraving: Offer the prestige and status that come with laser-engraved metal payment cards from Fiserv and appeal to higher income and younger consumer demographics 
  • Vertical Orientation: A vertical layout differentiates your card and keeps your brand visible when EMV chips are inserted at the point of sale. The back of the card remains horizontal to align with the signature panel and magnetic stripe

 

Accessible Banking for Cardholders with Visual Impairments

 

Braille can be added to any card at the time of personalization with a durable, clear, embossed sticker. The full primary account number, expiration date and security code will be applied with this transparent sticker, permitting all existing card information to remain visible. A notch will also be added to the right side of the card to help ensure proper insertion at the point-of-sale.
