WordStock Customer Loyalty Cards

WordStock sells custom-printed plastic-laminated cards to use with your Customer Loyalty program: for less than the cost of a single color photocopy you can give your customers permanent, full-color cards printed with your own design and your store information.

3 sample Loyalty cardsThe cards are designed to work interactively with WordStock’s Customer Loyalty program: each card has a barcode on the back that you scan to track the customer’s purchases. Just scan the card at the register and WordStock automatically tracks the sale and allocates the purchase according to how your Loyalty program has been designed. If you don’t have scanners, you can enter the customer’s Loyalty number manually.

We offer three different formats: a card with a keytag (they share the same customer number), a card by itself, and a keytag by itself. (In our experience, the card and keytag combination is the most popular format.)

Each format is available printed either in full, four-color ‘process’ printing or digital printing. Four-color printing offers exact color matching, while digital printing can vary from one batch to another. Therefore, if having your colors match exactly is important to you, you should choose 4-color printing.

Be sure to read the detailed artwork specifications and requirements, below, as well as exact card and keytag dimensions. If you have questions about any aspect of these cards, please send email to Norm Gosselin.

Artwork-Related Fees

To avoid unnecessary fees, delays, and disappointment, card artwork must be approved by WordStock. If you have artwork you’d like to use, please send it to us for evaluation. Alternatively, we can create artwork for you from scratch or from existing materials, such as your store’s logo or business card.

We bill artwork consultation and development at the rate of $150/hour, in 1/4-hour increments, with a minimum of one hour, but will credit the first hour with your order of 5000 or more cards.

If you have your own card manufacturer, we will charge for consultation to verify that your cards will work with WordStock and will require your vendor to sign a non-disclosure / non-compete agreement with us.

If you have any question relating to artwork or card production, please contact WordStock Sales.
