The Economical Solution to providing cards for a SmartCard system.
A SmartCard is the size of a credit card that has an embedded memory chip and can be loaded with data and revalued for continued use. ESD offers customers a SmartCard that is plain white on the face and has a security message and an electronic serial number on the back.   View Brochure

An ESD MoneyCard With the Location Name and Address Printed on the Reverse Side.
The Personalized ESD MoneyCard has the colorful branded graphic on the face of the card.  On the reverse side the store name, store address and store phone number is printed in black ink; this custom message is added to the standard (ESN) electronic serial number.  In addition, because these cards are meant to be retained by the user, there is a warning  printed on the reverse side to be mindful of the card and to treat it like cash; this warning is printed in both Spanish and English.  View Brochure
