Many stores use pre-paid, stored-value cards with great success, allowing visitors to buy a gift for their friends and family members without specifying the item. Gift Card holders can then use the card to purchase products and services provided by the issuing business. The buyer gets to decide how much to spend while the person for which the Gift Card is being bought gets to pick the gift in person. Statistics say Gift Card holders typically spend 30-50% more than the card’s value during their visit. Skillful use of Gift Cards by businesses as a marketing tool facilitates better sales results and deeper loyalty to the brand.
Gift Cards made by Quickcards are the same size as a normal credit card, so they can be conveniently kept in a wallet or handbag. They are printed on both sides, with the front usually containing a company logo with simple or all out extravagant graphics and the value of the card. While the back is reserved for a magnetic strip, barcode or QR code that is used at the point of sale location to verify the card and its value. Usage is tracked on the Gift Card software used by the business or in a ledger or log book if they run their gift card program independent of their POS system. The back also includes terms and conditions, contact information, sequential numbering and PIN code with a scratch-off sticker if required. Full-colour printing in 360 dpi resolution is the standard option, while we also have a range of sophisticated base card stocks that includes plastic, recycled paper, metallic or foil. Our online design editor allows you to define the visuals in any way you want, add your logo and selected card text to any position on the card, or include any other details needed.
