ABnote Introduces flexifoil, High Speed Variable Foil Card Personalization

ABnote’s flexifoil™ offers card issuers high-speed, flexible solution to customize and enhance card designs with eye-catching foil graphics.

FORT LEE, N.J. ― October 24, 2015 ― American Banknote Corporation (“ABnote”), a pioneer in secure payment and identification solutions, today announced the introduction of its new flexifoil™ range of unique design features .  This exclusive new solution applies vibrant, reflective foil design accents to both static and variable information, such as the card holder’s name and account number, on payment and gift cards. ABnote is the first North American card issuance provider to include flexifoilTM in their personalization process.

In addition to its value as a card personalization option, flexifoilTM also offers a more cost effective alternative to traditional foil-stamping by removing the time and cost of origination. During the ABnote card personalization process, the card issuer simply selects one of the many eye-catching foil accents available. From there, ABnote’s flexifoilTM solution quickly applies the selected font and foil to each card, adding a burst of color and reflectivity to both the card design and the card user’s individual number and name on the card. Because no tooling is required, prototypes and changes to the design are easy, quick and affordable.

“flexifoil™ is the latest example of ABnote’s commitment to, and endless pursuit of, cost effective card design innovation,” said Keith Goldstein, CEO of ABnote North America.  “We are continually identifying the best up-and-coming solutions, such as flexifoil™, and incorporating them into our already-proven solutions for manufacturing, personalizing and distributing secure payment and gift cards.”
