A loyalty card is an extension of your brand. That's why we ensure consistency across all graphical elements, solidifying brand identity and fostering customer loyalty:

While we do not specialize in eco-friendly cards, we do encourage responsible disposal and recycling practices for old plastic cards. Small steps can lead to significant environmental changes.

Before discarding, consider if old loyalty cards can be repurposed-for crafts, as placeholders, or even as tools for spreading paint or putty:

  • Hand them to creative friends or local schools for art projects.

  • Use as a tool in everyday DIY projects.

If a card has reached the end of its life, recycling is a better option than the trash bin. Drop the cards at local recycling centers that accept PVC materials. Together, we can make a difference:

  • Check with your local recycling program for guidelines on plastic card disposal.

  • Encourage customers to bring back old cards for proper recycling when they get a new one.
