Card issuance services

We unlock the issuer and cardholder experience with truly unique card issuance and card personalization services.

In the current transformation of the payment and banking industry the payment card—whether digital or physical, made of metal or recycled plastic—turns out to be the strongest link to the end customer, for traditional banks as well as for FinTechs. At IDEMIA, we strive to strengthen this link with a wide range of card issuance services and card personalization services.

We are the only global player in the market to master the complete payment card design and card issuance process—from the artwork creation to card personalization and delivery to the cardholder’s doorstep. With over 30+ service centers and more than 800 million payment cards personalized per year in 180+ countries, we deliver added-value card issuance services for issuers with clear benefits for the end users.

Limitless card personalization possibilities

At IDEMIA, we make sure that your card design, inserts and packaging are fully in line with the experience you want to provide to your customers. Unlimited design possibilities are offered to each individual consumer to make their banking cards truly unique. End-users can design their card, personalize it with a photo, engrave their signature and chose their PIN code. The level of card personalization is such that cardholders feel their card is designed just for them.
