09 December 2019: Leading UK card manufacturer and bureau, allpay.cards has developed a new vertical prepaid card for staff use. allpay.cards offers end to end production for payment and banking cards from design through to end fulfilment and has created the metallic blue Mastercard in a portrait format to demonstrate the unique and flexible designs that are now available for credit, debit and prepaid cards.
Jamie Taylor, head of card operations at allpay.cards explains: “Many of our clients are challenger banks and being able to differentiate in the marketplace is key. With changes to the regulations surrounding card design, we can now be much more innovative and flexible to help clients stand out.
“The unusual upright design of this particular prepaid staff card, which is used internally for staff travel and expenses, is not the only new feature we have incorporated. We have included a thumb notch or ‘blind notch’ which is helpful for blind or partially sighted people to find the correct card orientation. It has no signature strip and all the personalisation is on the reverse of the card, leaving more space on the front for clean design work. An orange core makes the edge stand out in a purse or wallet plus the magnetic stripe on the back of the card is blue, all adding to a unique look.
“We have produced only around 70 cards for our team which illustrates the potential low volumes of which can be manufactured at our state-of-the-art facility in the west Midlands. As a boutique provider, we can be more agile than some of the multinational manufacturers and therefore, supply minimum card volumes for the benefit of start-ups and challenger banks who want to test ‘something different’ with no limitation on design.
“Feedback from staff has been positive and they have given our new card the ‘thumbs-up’ in terms of design and ease of use!”
