How Membership Cards Work

Membership cards can create value for your company in a number of ways. These small plastic cards act as individual marketing devices, encouraging your customers to shop again and again, while providing you with helpful customer data. Customers with loyalty membership cards are more likely to return to your business to enjoy a discount, gain points or receive other incentives.

Membership cards are easy to print and are very cost effective. You can print these cards in-house with a card printer or send the job to an offsite printing company. Add in a barcode that will store your customer's information for further analysis. With this magnetically-coded information, you can create custom reports that tell you everything about your customer's buying habits.

Loyalty and membership cards are most often used in food shops, but their use is not limited to these businesses. Use membership cards in your gym, car wash, coffee shop or restaurant. Membership cards are also great for service businesses like salons, spas and other personal care establishments.

When printing your membership cards, the options are endless. You can print in black and white for the most economical option, or choose full colour printing to wow and excite your customers. When it comes to gaining new customers and retaining old ones, membership cards are a great value for your business.

How Hotel Key Cards Work

For the past 20 years, hotels have been exclusively using electronic key cards in place of metal keys for their guests. Initially, this trend was slow to catch on, with many chains resisting the new transition to the high-tech cards. Some hotels and motels preferred the traditional key, but slowly joined the other hotels in the industry by offering key cards.

Security was a huge issue with the metal keys of years past. A hotel guest could easily lose the key, giving a stranger access to his room and his belongings. If the key were lost, the hotel staff had to create a new key, which was time-consuming and expensive. The old keys were heavy and bulky and were less than ideal for guests who wanted to travel lightly. The introduction of the key card was an innovative lifeline for hotels.

These small plastic cards are thin and lightweight, and are no thicker than a credit card. These tiny cards pack a powerful punch. An embedded magnetic strip contains all of the information needed to make hotel room entry a breeze. After the guest checks out, the hotel simply reprograms the key for the next guest.These cards can be activated and deactivated remotely, making them a streamlined way of managing guests.

If you are looking for a key card solution, look no further.
