Text or alphanumeric Personalization includes printing on the surface of a plastic card literal information or numbers.
Time is not always the personalization is to apply the cardholder's personal information, sometimes information about the card itself or its contents.
Personalization of plastic cards of this type may include the following information about the cardholder or the card itself:
- owner of personal data (surname, first name, date of birth)
- name of the organization
- position of the card holder
- the validity period
- serial number
- any unique codes
For use on plastic card text and digital information used thermal printers or embossers. If a variable thermal printer does the information on the card surface, the embosser squeezes required letters and numbers. Modern technology also allows text information and apply numbering, using different colors.
