Plastic cards direct from the manufacturer

Why not source your cards direct from the manufacturer? Databac has been manufacturing plastic cards since 1970. Produced in our secure production facility, our cards are made to the highest standard in strict confidentiality.

Secure cards made to measure

We offer full-colour printing (digital, screen, offset, dye-sublimation – re-transfer and DOP), as well as full personalisation and encoding. Our card security options include colour-shift and UV security backgrounds, as well as embedded and over-laminated OVDs and holograms. Our cards can also incorporate a TRW surface for use with rewritable card printers, where the cards can be reprinted up to 500 times.

In addition, we offer a range of signature panels as well as traditional embossing and a host of other options to meet your card needs. We can even attach the card to personalised stationary; fold, insert into envelopes so that they are all ready for mailing.

Embedded technologies

If you use an automated system like access control, we can incorporate a wide range of reading technologies: magnetic stripe, barcode, EM, SLE, Mifare, DESFire, Hitag 2, I-Code SLI, Legic, HID prox, Indala, Iclass and most other 125KHz, 13.56MHz and UHF Gen2 technologies.

Or, if you want just plain, off-the-shelf cards (plain white, coloured, magstripe, Mifare, Legic, Hitag2, I-Code), then these are always available for immediate shipment.
