example

You will find cheaper cards on the internet but they will be low quality imports from China.

However, you will probably not be aware of this, as companies who outsource production to China don't like to advertise that the cards are printed thousands of miles away and that they have no control over the manufacturing process and the quality will be ... well, as you would expect for a cheap import from China!

Design your Membership Card

You will need a computer and some software to create the design/artwork to be printed. A membership card usually measures 86 x 54mm so you need to create your document to the correct size.

Once you have created your design, we recommend you put a very thin outline (with rounded corners with a 3mm radius) to depict the card edge around the artwork, this will be your guide for later on when you cut them to size.

Prepare the optional extras

Also, within your design, if you need a signature strip, place a box on the artwork for the signature strip with a thin outline.

Then, setup your print software to print the cards 10 up on an A4 sheet with each card touching each other. Have the cards start high up on the A4 sheet so there is a bigger margin at the bottom as some inkjet printers are unable to print very close to the bottom edge!

If you want the cards sequentially numbered, if your software allows it, you can specify a different number to be printed on each card. If this is not possible you will have to manually print a number on each card by making a new A4 template with 10 numbers in the correct location and print the numbers as an additional process over the main artwork that you have just printed.

Time to print

Membership Cards printed 10 up to an A4 sheet
Membership Cards printed 10 up to an A4 sheet

Once this has been done, simply print the pages so you have enough cards. For example, print 11 pages if you want 100 membership cards as this will give you 10 extra cards incase you need them or if you make a mistake with the cutting them out!

Once you have printed the sheets, if you need anything printing on the back, then place them back in your inkjet printer and again print 10 up the artwork for the back of the cards.

If your printer settings are correct the artwork for the back of the cards should line up exactly with the artwork for the front of the cards.

Time to laminate

laminated membership cards
laminated membership cards

Then, you need to laminate the A4 sheets with a desktop laminator, one at a time. It is best to use the thickest laminating pouches that you can get, typically the thickest available are 500 microns (250 microns per sheet), with the thickness of the paper the membership cards will not be as thick as the professional ones that we print at 760 microns thick but they will be ok to use.

Apply the masking tape for the strips

If you need signature strips on the card so you can sign a name or write other information then you need to take some masking tape and place it in horizontal and vertical lines on the laminated A4 sheets to mask off around the places for the signature strips

Apply the signature strips

Now take some tippex or some matt white paint and carefully paint it in the spaces for the signature strips. Then, before the paint/tippex has fully dried, carefully remove the masking tape and leave the sheets to dry.

Cutting time

Once the sheets have dried, take a paper slicer or a pair of scissors and very carefully cut each card out. This will take a lot of time but the more time you take on this step, the better the finished results will be.

Take extra care with the corners, so they look neat and tidy and consistent. If you choose not to have rounded corners, then the square corners will be a weak point and the paper will delaminate quickly and will soon look shoddy.

As your 'home made' membership cards have a paper core, they will not be as durable as the professional membership cards that we produce so avoid getting them wet otherwise the paper core will soak up water and delaminate.

Hopefully the above information will get you started with your membership cards. Please get in touch with us if you want professional quality membership cards and we will be happy to quote and remember, we offer free artwork on all orders.

Is Your Business or Club Missing Out on the Benefits of Membership Cards?

More than ever before, savvy businesses are using membership cards to strengthen and sustain customer loyalty. Whether you're grappling with customer retention issues, seek to sharpen your competitive advantage, or want to increase upselling and customer lifetime value, a membership card can support your overall marketing efforts in a real and meaningful way.

Athelampton membership card Besides the positive impact on the top line, the value of retaining customers becomes apparent when you consider that the cost of acquiring a new customer is over 30 times that of keeping an existing one. Winning consumer loyalty can be quite challenging given the following statistics:

  • According to Accenture, just 28 per cent of consumers are loyal to brands.

  • UK shoppers seek out a lot of information about brands before purchasing a product, and are less loyal to retail brands.

  • Support.com says that 73 per cent of consumers are most influenced by price and value when they decide whether or not to stay loyal to a brand.

  • A study by analytics company Verint reveals that 27 per cent of consumers would be willing to sign up to a company's loyalty scheme when first presented with such an offer.

  • According to Marketing Executives Networking Group, 55 per cent of millennials claim to be loyal to brands, compared to 39 per cent of consumers in the 35 and above age category.

  • A study in the International Journal of Market Research indicates that customers who buy sportswear switch brands and, as such, don't have any fixed allegiance. Smaller sportswear brands attract a little less loyalty than their larger counterparts.

  • A survey by marketing agency Cherry London suggests that women are more brand loyal than men, if they are adequately rewarded.


  • A membership card that offers discounts and special offers can be the incentive that customers need to make repeat purchases and curb the tendency to compare brands before every purchase.

    A powerful marketing tactic for small businesses

    bar reef membership card Small businesses may initially be focused on cash flow and revenue generation, and effective customer engagement may not be a huge priority. The first thing that may come to mind on the subject of membership cards can be 'money-off deals', instead of the value of rewarding customers for their business and continued patronage.

    Customer reward strategies can go a long way in making customers feel special and cared for. Small businesses are already well-poised for intimate and personalised interactions with customers. Membership cards can grow and solidify the relationship, helping ensure that the brand is always in customers' minds. This front-of-mind awareness is crucial in pushing customers towards your product/service every time they experience such a need.

    A reputation enhancing tool

    BAWA membership card 61 per cent of consumers would tell their family and friends about their brand experiences. Membership discounts and offers give consumers a reason to recommend your brand to their contacts. Not only do they increase customer appreciation, but also pique others' curiosity about you, encouraging them to try out your offerings.

    Retain existing customers

    Bradford District NHS membership card Customer retention rate has a direct impact on the top line as well as the bottom line. In five years, a business with a 70 per cent customer retention rate would have lost up to three times as many customers than a business with a 90 per cent retention rate. Membership and loyalty cards offer a strong reason to continue buying from a business. It is often seen that once customers start using special offers and redeeming rewards, their enthusiasm for the business as well as engagement with it grows.

    Gain new customers

    Carlton Club membership card The perks offered by your membership card will determine how effectively you will be able to acquire customers. As already stated before, it is more profitable to retain customers and try to increase their lifetime value or upsell to them, than invest in new ways to get more customers.

    In his research involving a well-known retailer, author and loyalty expert Brian Woolf found that after a year of becoming a customer, just two out of every thousand new customers - a mere 0.2 per cent - were in the top customer segment, while just twelve - or 1.2 per cent - were in the second segment. Also, between 95 and 96 per cent of new customers were either in the lowest segment or had abandoned the business by the end of the year.

    The quality of new arrivals can be improved by assessing the data of loyalty programs. The data can help understand the demographic similarities of existing, high-quality customers, which can then be used for tailored targeting of prospects who fall within similar demographics. In fact, access to customer data is a huge benefit of membership cards. Cards that have magnetic strips capture customer data at the point-of-sale, giving you a glimpse into customers' frequent purchases, so you can create suitable discount vouchers reflecting their preferences and buying habits.

    An analysis of customer data, purchasing behaviours and loyalty levels will reveal who your best customers are. You can spend the necessary time, money and effort on your best customers to increase their shopping cart values and the return on your marketing investment.

    Extra value for customers

    Chriswick Rugby Club membership card Membership cards allow businesses the opportunity to enhance their value proposition. If you're a store owner-operator for instance, your membership card can offer exclusive cash rewards, early shopping hours or discounts. Free shipping or other value additions also increase the appeal of a membership. They all serve as incentives to buy from you instead of turning to the competition. You can't stop consumers from comparison shopping; but offering extras and inducements can tip the scales in your favour.

    Win back inactive customers

    Flexi Golf membership card The success rate for converting prospects is typically five per cent, while the rate for reactivating inactive customers can go as high as 20 per cent. Winning back customers has a high rate of success than acquiring new ones. An advantage you have with lost/inactive customers is information about their purchase history, contact details, and preferred communication channel.

    Your customer win back program can help you identify the kind of incentives and rewards that elicit positive results and those that don't. You can use this information to attach the most-appreciated rewards to the specific products you want to share with customers/clients.

    Leverage as a relationship building tool

    Cove Sailing club membership card Building long-lasting relationships with customers isn't exactly an easy job. A number of factors may work for or against you in your effort to engage, win and retain customers. Age is one factor. Studies in the UK have shown that customers under the age of 45 are most loyal and those over 65 are least loyal. Some other studies haven't found a clear relationship between age and loyalty.

    We live in a world of the highly connected customer who checks reviews, ratings and peer recommendations on review sites and social media to make informed purchase decisions. Businesses that earn positive word-of-mouth are more likely to attract healthy traffic to their website, calls or requests for more information from prospects.

    Building and nurturing relationships is less of a challenge when you have customers knocking on your door. But the task of reaching out to your target audience, identifying leads, and converting them to customers is effort-intensive and time-consuming. Here's where simple yet effective tools like a membership card can help in forming relationships and motivating customers to come back for more.

    Self-sustaining

    Enduroland membership card Once you've handed out membership cards to customers, they will keep doing the work for you. As long as they have their cards, your customers will want to make the most of your product/service and special offers.

    The self-sustaining nature of membership cards can also relieve some your marketing costs. You don't have to keep sending out promotional material or invest in outdoor advertising in order to remind customers to keep buying from you or using your service.

    Additionally, satisfied customers can act as brand advocates and personally recommend your business to their friends, family and associates. It can supplement your own marketing efforts and expand your customer base.

    Printed membership cards have become a staple at clubs, associations and societies. If you own a club and don't have any kind of membership card program in place, here are four reasons to invest in one:

    Unique card identity

    The Mull of Kintyre membership card You can personalise your club's membership cards with member data and protect it through an encoded magnetic strip. Sequential numbering on the card will serve as proof of the unique identity of the card-holder.

    Motivate subscription renewals

    Fish Hook Poker membership card Issuing membership cards annually has been seen to encourage a prompt response at the time of renewal. Unless your customers have made up their mind to discontinue your service, you can expect the membership card to keep reminding them of their association with your club and all the advantages that come with it.

    A status enhancer for new members

    Hannah Banana membership card People join clubs to participate in activities they like or socialise with like-minded people. The appearance and quality of a membership card can add to this appeal, hastening recruitment and retaining interest.

    Security

    The Greenside Social Club membership card Printed membership cards also act as a security tool. They can be manually checked or swiped to permit entry into your premises. It can ensure that only members have access to your premises and non-members cannot make unauthorised use of your services.

    Membership Cards Printing

    example

    Membership cards are a great weapon for business both large and small when it comes to marketing. They are specifically intended to encourage and reward repeat business by offering incentives or discounts for customers when they return. They can also be used by businesses or organisations to track the purchased that customers make in order to obtain a better understanding of their buying patterns and times of the day or year that the buying occurs. This in turn enables the company or organisation to better target their marketing. They can be very useful for all businesses, the type of business that we will all associate membership cards with are restaurants and retail stores.

    example

    Membership cards can come in many different styles. A very simple one could be paper based but they soon become dog eared and scruffy looking. Also, being paper based, the customer will perceive it to have little or no value, unlike a plastic membership card. People cannot simply throw them away like they can with a paper based one as it is much more substantial and expensive looking.

    example

    A very simple use for a membership card is e.g. a coffee shop that offers a free coffee when you have bought 10. The coffee shop can scan a magnetic strip or barcode on your membership card and their system will be updated each time you purchase a coffee, then once you have purchased 10 coffees, you will be entitled to a free coffee.

    example

    A membership card tends to have a unique number either printed or within a barcode or magnetic strip which can be read by the business or organisation. The customers details can also be stored on the computer system against the unique card number, for example their email address, postal address and telephone number.

    example

    A company could offer different kinds of rewards for customer membership. The rewards could be as simple as a free side order in a restaurant, a free drink or a percentage discount off the final bill or off the next purchase. The type of reward a company offers would depend on the type of business and what will best motivate the customer to return. Many companies find that experimenting with different types of rewards at different times of the day, week or year provides the best results suited for the business. It is best to keep in mind that people love to have a great deal but they don't want it to be complicated or have to work our how it works, keep it simple!

    Membership card schemes

    example

    The goal for a membership scheme is to get your customers to spend more money and more often. The best way a business can achieve this is by encouraging repeat business by offering incentives for larger purchases or purchases more often. Try reserving special offers that can only be obtained if the customer has a membership card. Keep an eye on your direct competitors as it is likely that they are also offering membership cards and offers so you will need to ensure your offers are better and / or more interesting to your customers.

    Always keep analysing the data you obtain from scanning the membership cards and where needed alter the offers, for example offer even better deals when people don't normally use their membership cards to encourage more business as quieter times.

    example

    A lot of customers are wary about membership cards and the information about that that the company stores. It is best to only keep on file the minimum amount of information about that customer that you need. Asking too many questions when they sign up is likely to put them off, for example asking how much they earn, how many children they have or if they own their own house is unlikely to be relevant to you and will put the customer off as they will think that you are selling their personal information and they will be bombarded with junk phone calls and post from 3rd parties. Never ever sell the customers information without their express permission.

    How Plastic Membership Cards Can Increase Membership Numbers

    example

    Do you have a club or association? Would you like to increase the number of your members?

    Then you should know that people like to feel that they belong to somewhere and that they can be proud of their ideas, values and lifestyle, the reason people choose to join a club and organisation being the fact that they can find all these over there.

    So the way to turn the odds in the favour of your organisation is to do something that will make people proud of belonging to it, something that will help to prove their belonging.

    A plastic membership card is the best solution, as you can offer such a membership card, designed to incorporate your club’s or organisation’s distinct signs, to every member that will choose to adhere to the actions and activities you unroll.

    example

    The plastic membership card is a discreet sign, something that will be held only by a member of an organisation, as an appreciation for his or her interest and efforts towards that organisation.

    To make such cards a minimum amount of funds are required, as the manufacturing process is rather straightforward. You can choose to make the cards general or personalized, for some of the most trustworthy members of your club.

    A personalized card will always have a bigger impact because people enjoy being noticed and appreciated within a community, even with the help of simple gestures like offering them a membership card.

    If you want, you can make cards for different levels of involvement or based on the experience of a member of the organization. You can have cards for newcomers, for the most active, and so on, as you are the one to determine the levels of evolution within your group.

    example

    Another reason that makes investing in plastic membership cards an excellent choice is the fact that the members that have such cards can promote your club or group.

    They may talk to other people, tell them about the group their joined and what it is happening during meeting and activities, also showing them the membership card.

    Of course, this is not something you can ask from your members, but it will happen involuntarily as they will want to share their experience with the people around them.

    So soon, you may see new people interested in joining your club and organisation as well, as they have seen the elegant card and have listened to the enthusiastic story presented by the ones that are members already.

    So if you were looking to become a more presentable entity and help members, and future members, feel like they belong to certain social movements, the plastic membership card will help you achieve such a status.

    Many clubs and organisations already opted for this feature, choosing to create personalised cards for each member, as they are much more appreciated than the general membership cards.

    Membership Cards with Signature Strips
    signature strips Signature strips are a popular optional extra. They add security and individuality to each card. Security in the way that a signature can be verified against other documentation or a specimen signature held by the club and by the individual as once signed no other card will be the same and may provide a sense of belonging to the member.

    Often multiple signature strips are used by organisations so they can enter other information on the card such as an expiry date or type of membership.
    Membership Cards with Sequential Numbering
    sequential numbering Sequential numbering is often used by a club as a membership number, for example when a new member wants to join, a card is taken from the storage box and whatever number is on the card is the membership number for the new member. This is a very simple and popular method.

    Another use for the sequential numbering is for identification of the member, the identifiable feature will be the sequential number which is linked to the clubs own system, this may be a simple paper based system or a bespoke software package. The clubs system will record relevant information about the member such as name, date of birth, membership level etc.

    Membership Cards with Barcodes
    barcodes Barcodes along with using the relevant software are a handy way to provide security and data recoding for club members. Barcodes are quick to scan so rarely cause a backlog of members trying to enter the premises. Often clubs have the barcode linked to a software system which brings up a photo of the member, this allows quick identification and secure entry along with quickly recording the members visit.

    Software systems can be programmed to identify peak and off peak members and can flag up when a member is trying to enter when they shouldn’t be.

    Membership Cards with Embossing
    embossing Often customers ask for membership cards with embossing as it looks very professional. The options for embossing are very flexible in that a number (sequential or random) can be added or member names.

    Often clubs will not know all the member names at the point of order, in these cases we can emboss the known names along with the relevant membership number and add just membership numbers to the remaining cards, this makes for a affordable yet still professional solution and makes current members feel valued as its clear that they are continuing members just from looking at there membership card.

    Membership Cards with Magnetic Strips
    magnetic strips An alternative to barcodes are magnetic strips which are swiped instead of scanned. Magnetic strips are often ordered by companies who already have the relevant hardware in place to utilise them.

    We offer two types of magnetic strip, Hico and Loco and we can encoded the information to the card in whichever way your system needs it.

    Membership Cards with Metallic Foiling
    metallic foiling Another way to add unique luxury to your plastic membership cards. Having a word such as VIP foiled really makes the importance of the member stand out. Printing metallic gold foil on a metallic gold base looks great but is reserved for those really looking to push the boat out for those very special members.

    Sometimes we print in either black ink as part of the normal printing the word MEMBER, if the membership card is a normal membership tier and we can print in silver or gold foil the wording Silver Member or Gold Member, or any other wording you desire to distinguish between the level of membership at a glance.

    Membership Cards with Metallic Base Card
    metallic base cards A great way to easily identify different levels of membership Especially for life or VIP members is to have metallic gold and a metallic silver base card along side the normal card base colour.

    Clubs often have different levels of membership such as VIP, gold or life members, the metallic gold base offers a wonderful way to provide a very special plastic card to these members. Often the design of the card itself looks great when its very simple as the metallic gold offers the wow factor all by it self.

    A metallic silver base can also be used, perhaps for platinum or important members. These look great in a matt finish as a luxury look is obtained.

    Membership Cards with Personalisation / variable data
    personalisation and variable data Using Personalisation / variable data on membership cards individualises one card from another. This is often used for a members name, their level of membership and when their membership expires.

    Just be careful not to make the name and membership level too long as it need to physically fit when printed on the cards.

    Email Proof
    email proof Once you have placed your membership card order with us, we will email a photo-realistic proof for approval.

    This is great way to quickly see how the finished card will look and an opportunity for you to check that everything is present and correct for you !

    Postal Proof
    postal proof For our full colour membership cards, one you have approved the wonderful photo-realistic proof that we email to you for approval, we will then proceed to print an actual plastic membership card complete with any optional extras that apply and then post it to you for final approval.

    This gives you the opportunity to check that they have printed just right for you and that any barcodes, or encoded magnetic strips scan ok for you.

    Should you require any changes as this point, pat yourself on the back for choosing us. As you now have the opportunity to make changes rather than have hundreds or thousands of membership cards printed that are not quite right or you as you would have if you had used another company. Our customers love our postal proofs !

    Membership Cards with Photo Seals
    photo seals Photoseals are used when it is important to visually identify a member quickly.

    Customers who use photoseals often use the membership cards as an identification card, perhaps when more sophisticated software packages are not available.

    Solid Plastic
    solid plastic Our full colour plastic membership cards are solid plastic so they will last many times longer than card membership cards or ‘encapsulated’ membership cards that re just laminated paper!

    Our membership cards are waterproof and very durable as they will not be come ‘dog eared’ with day to day use.

    Also, unlike surface printed cards, the printing is actually inside the plastic so it is protected from being worn off over time.

    Thickness
    thickness We offer three thicknesses of plastic, ranging from 760 micron (0.76mm) down to 680 micron (0.68mm) and the thinnest 420 micron (0.42mm). The most popular is 760 micron which is the same thickness as a standard bank card.

    Some customers choose thinner plastic as they can work out a bit cheaper, especially at higher volumes. However, if the cards have a magnetic strip on them then they must be 760 microns thick. Also it is not possible to emboss the thinnest 420 microns thick plastic cards.

    Premium Quality
    premium quality As our membership cards are printed right here in the UK you can be assured that they are the highest quality rather than some cheap imports from China where quality control and working conditions are very low.

    Made in UK
    made in UK We always have and we always will make our membership cards right here in the UK to ensure high quality and fast deliver to you.

    Double Sided
    double sided We can print our membership cards in full colour on either one side or both sides for the same price.

    Sometimes customers have the signature strip, or membership number on the back along with any terms of membership to leave the front of the card uncluttered, so their logo and branding is the main focus.

    Membership Cards with Scratch off panels
    scratch off panels More widely used on gift cards but equally can be used on membership cards.

    They can be used to instances where the cars needs to be invalidated but the club wishes the member to retain the card.

    Gloss or matt finish
    choose a gloss or matt finish The chosen finish of a membership cards helps to add individuality and can make the difference between a vibrant modern glossy plastic card or a contemporary luxury matt feel.

    Either option is available for you and best of all there is no price difference, the hard thing is deciding which you prefer as both are gorgeous.

    QR codes
    qr codes An alternative to a barcode but it can, if required, hold a lot more data but please note they can equally hold just a membership number.

    They can be scanned with a dedicated scanner or a smart phone. The flexibility of scanning options makes QR codes useful for membership clubs, especially if events are held away from a main premises or an event is held outside. They are definitely worth considering as an alternately to the traditional barcode.

    Membership Cards with Hole or slot punching
    hole and slot punching Holes or slots are handy when the membership cards are to be used for an event as the membership card can easily be attached to clothing, a lanyard or other item the member is comfortable with.

    A lot of sports clubs opt for a hole or slot so that the player can easily locate there card.

    Membership Card Examples
    membership card examples We have lost count of the number of membership cards that we have printed over the years. We have printed cards for a huge range of clubs, groups, organisations and activities. Most of our work is repeat work for the same clubs and organisations year in year out, usually with a slight change to the design each year. The change to the design is sometimes a simple as a colour change to the background. For some of our customers they have a photograph printed faintly in the background that is changed each year along with the date on the card.
