The design of plastic cards includes all graphic elements that the customer wants to be visible on the card. Several things have to be considered when creating the design:
1. Main function of the card
2. Printing method
3. Availability of built-in chip (contact or contactless) or magnetic stripe
4. Personalization method - printed, embossed, electronic
5. Type of use
In order to answer these questions, one needs to be aware of the technological possibilities of the production process of each card and how it is going to be used.
