Ward/Kraft Expands Mag Stripe Options for Plastic Cards and Mailers
Ward/Kraft, Ft. Scott, Kan., expanded its plastic card offerings to include eco-friendly, holographic green coating; more mag stripe sizes; additional encoding options; and the ability to add a mag stripe to traditional and larger composite plastic products through proprietary improvements of its encoding equipment.
The enhanced coating and mag stripe capabilities allow distributors to offer more mag stripe options and eco-friendly, holographic green coating on CR-80 and larger plastic composite materials. Distributors can also provide green plastic card hologram coatings and a mag stripe on a wide range of 20 mil and 30 mil plastic products, including postcard mailers in 4x5½”, 3½x7½” and similar sizes.
Mag stripes with new options for 300, 650 and 2750 oe encoding can now be laid down on the new larger and the traditional credit card-sized CR-80 materials. The new mag stripe capabilities enable distributors to sell postcard mailers with any size stripe applied to the postcard. The new process has already been approved by the USPS.
