Dynamic Card Solutions (DCS), the leading provider of instant issuance and PIN selection solutions for banks, credit unions and retailers that issue magnetic stripe, EMV and contactless cards, today announced that Team One Credit Union has implemented DCS' instant issue software and hardware.
Based in Saginaw, MI, the credit union can now instantly issue unembossed Visa® debit and credit cards at the branch level.
By utilizing DCS' CardWizard® software and FCP 20/20 unembossed card printer, Team One now offers a gallery of 10 stock images that cardholders can select for their card background. In addition, the credit union also has developed their own custom online card application, Picture My Card, which can be used by members to upload customized, personalized images that can be printed as their card background on their debit or credit card. The service was developed in-house by Team One as an application that can also be used by other credit unions that want to offer this personalized web-based card background option.
"We are very pleased to have implemented DCS' unembossed instant issue technology," said Dana Tell, vice president, marketing for Team One. "After implementing the program, we have seen a tremendous interest from our members for the customized photo option. Unembossed instant issuance is allowing us to be very innovative and offer members a service that they previously couldn't get. Team One has received tremendous exposure by word of mouth throughout the community and the card program is becoming very popular."
After members select either an image from the stock gallery or if they have uploaded an image on the credit union's Picture My Card program, DCS' CardWizard software transfers all personalization data fully encrypted to the FCP 20/20 printer which quickly and securely prints in high-definition color onto both sides of white blank card stock the personalized unembossed card. The member can then begin utilizing the card immediately.
