1) If I want Eco friendly cards what is the best product?
PP/PET/PETG each have their own benefits:
PP (Polypropylene) Tough, thin and flexible they have the best range of sizes and shapes. They have the flexibility for you to design your own unique promotional product. They are recyclable, wood free and biodegradable. Minimum order 250 cards.
PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) the benefits of PET over PVC are PET will not crack or break like
PVC can. PET is flexible, it can be subjected to bending or curling and will return to its original
shape. Minimum order 50 cards.
PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol) are more like the well known PVC cards as they can
have a magnetic stripe for encoding, the major and important differences are they are Eco
friendly, can be recycled just like the PP cards and you can order as little as 50 cards.
I don’t have a logo.
If you need one, we can design one for you. If your project doesn’t need a logo, we can still create a really Schmick design for you.

5) I don’t have my own printer can number my cards?
Yes, we can number, validate, encode and/or barcode your cards.
6) Do quoted prices include Goods & Services Tax?
Yes, always for cards delivered in Australia and No for cards exported overseas.
7) What is the difference between High and Low Coercivity Magnetic Tapes?
The difference between HiCo and LoCo is in the amount of magnetic force required to lay down data on the magnetic tape during the encoding process. The higher the Coercivity of the tape e.g. 2700 Oersted or 4000 Oersted, the greater the magnetic force required to encode the stripe. HiCo tape is typically used in high security applications and where there is heavy swipe reader usage. The higher the Coercivity, the more permanent the information that is stored on the magnetic tape.
