Magnetic Strip Encoding

We can encode Magnetic Strip Metal Cards

With HICO or LOCO Mag Strips

We encode on Track 1 in the following format:

%CARDNUMBER? for a 16 digit card it would look like as follows: %1111222233334444?

You can provide us with an XLS with the card numbers, or we can generate them for you. This is a great combination with our Variable Printing and Variable Etching options, so we can have a card number printed on the card as well as encoded to scan. A great option for gift cards, membership cards, reward programs and more!

We offer both HICO (high volume) and LOCO (low volume) Mag Strips on any of our custom metal cards.

Please confirm with your P.O.S. or solution provider if you have specific requirements.
