  • Magnetic Strips – Add a magnetic stripe to the back of your Metal Membership Cards!Choose from either a Hi-Co or Lo-Co magnetic strip – all of which can be encoded and delivered to you ready-to-use.

Magnetic Stripe FAQ

Do I need Hi-Co or Lo-Co magnetic stripes?

This information can be acquired from your POS system provider. Hi-Co stripes are generally utilized with cards requiring long-term use, while Lo-Co is commonly used with gift cards, loyalty programs, and metal membership cards.

All orders will receive Lo-Co unless otherwise requested.

Where can I create the serial numbers?

Your POS system can create specific or sequential number to your preference.

How do I submit what I need encoded onto the magnetic stripes?

Simply send us a Microsoft Excel file with your serial numbers during the order process.

Do I have to encode my magnetic stripes through My Metal Business Card?

No, this is an extra add-on option at your discretion. All stripes come blank unless otherwise noted.

How can I add encoding services if I’m placing my order online?

Encoding services can be purchased as an add-on option for only $.25 per card. On the order checkout page, simply note that you are interested in our encoding services in the Order Notes section, and a Sales Representative will update your order.

What if I don’t have all the member’s names up front?

Our specialty is geared towards mass-production; therefore, we aren’t really set up to do one-off type printing or keep cards in our facility. If you don’t have all the member’s names up front, you have a few options:

  1. You can place the initial order for however many cards you need as of now, then order smaller quantities once the names are acquired.
    • Note: going this route, the smallest order we can do is a Sample Run for $150. This is typically for five cards.
  2. You can place the order with a surplus and take the extras to a local engraver to add the names as needed.
    • Note: we recommend having your engraver test on our generic samples prior, to ensure their laser is compatible with our cards.
  3. Instead of printing names, you can assign a member or sequential number to each card and produce in larger quantities.
    • ***This is your most cost-effective option!*** At the core of a membership or loyalty program, the most important aspect is to give your clients the feeling of exclusivity and belonging. This can easily be done with a sequential number (i.e. 1 of 50, ID Card No. 1, etc.) which can be assigned directly to your client. Skip the hassle of having to add names later or having to worry about reproducing lost cards.

Metal Membership Cards are exactly what you need if you want a Membership Card that will be both durable and have an executive look and feel. Looking for something different, we also offer Plastic Membership Cards! Your clients will feel honored to receive their Metal Membership Card and the personalization will be the cherry on the top!
