    New printers are faster, which means that you will increase productivity and therefore profitability.
    The latest printers are more durable to significantly reduce downtime and issue highly secure badges.

    Pre-Printed Cards

    Are you looking to send a holiday greeting to a friend or a loved one? Is your wedding anniversary around the corner? Do you know anyone who is not well and could use some cheering up? Or are you looking to wish someone a happy birthday? Pre-printed cards provide a quick way to share holiday greetings or birthday wishes, but sometimes the message the card comes with isn't enough. When this is the case, you can deliver your own greeting with the aid of a PC printer and a graphic or word processor program. Printing on the inside of greeting cards requires the same printing process as that used on any heavy card stock. Once you've designed your greeting, simply set the printing parameters and print away, customizing your pre-printed greeting cards to your liking.

    The Usefulness of Customer Loyalty Cards

    For most business, having a customer come in once simply isn’t enough. Any business savvy person will tell you that the key to running a successful company is in the amount of customers you have alone, but in the willingness of those customers to come back to you time after time and not go to your competitors for the same, or similar, products. But how do you acquire an efficient network of loyal customers? Unless they are given some sort of incentive, most costumers won’t give a second thought before going to a different company if it’s more convenient for them. Customer loyalty cards are a great way to give your company the extra edge that will drive clients away from the doors of your competition in favor of doing business with you. Best of all, you can design and print these cards right from your office. Here are just some key benefits to take into consideration when deciding if taking the initiative to print customer loyalty cards will help your business:
    • First time buyers will be more inclined to return to you after their initial purchase- Giving your clients a discount or establishing a rewards system makes it more financially logical for your customers to return to you.

    • Get customers to remember you- Many customers tend to forget contact information for a business they seldom work with or have visited just once. A customer loyalty card with your businesses’ contact information can double as a more durable business card.

    • Returning customers will be encouraged to spend more than they normally would- If your company offers a rewards system through the use of loyalty cards, customers will be inclined to spend more with the goal of attaining those rewards.

    • Improve your inventory- customer loyalty cards can give you a better sense of what products your customers are buying. This provides you with useful data when it comes to deciding which product you need to stock up on more and which to cut back on.
    If you already own an ID badge printer, you don’t even have to purchase any additional supplies. ID badge printers, like the HDP5000 from Fargo, can be used to printer your very own customer loyalty badges right from your office! If you believe your business would benefit from customer loyalty cards, or simply want to find out more about how to begin implementing a customer loyalty card program for your business, give us a call at 800-897-7024.
