Own design card


#1

Would be cool for a bit of extra money to be able to put own design on the card, a picture or so…


#2

Can be very interesting :wink:
and at least we can have something unique and more personal


#3

At least provide this option (free) for virtual cards.


#4

Would be good if we would have cards with the following details:
Address
Full name
Birth date
And a picture (passport style)

Those ID bank cards exists and can be used as ID.

Why it would be useful?

Imagine you lose your passport while traveling to a remote island, e.g. in Philippines. To go back to the capital to reach your embassy you need to board a flight. This ID-card would save our ass :slight_smile:
I’ve heard many times at check in “photo ID accepted: driver license, passport, National ID, credit cards ID)

Very 90s. Some German cards had an ID-like photo back then. :wink:


#6

We used to have this in Denmark a couple of years ago. But the banks have already stopped doing it because of Copyrighted materials being used on the designs. Wouldn’t get my hopes up.


#7

well you can always check if it is against copyrights if you charge some 100kr for the card. It would be also a good advertising for revolut, because people would ask, how did we get this cool card :slight_smile:

You can’t really do that. People will say it is fine, but Revolut will be liable to a huge fine if they print something that is copyrighted. Just see what happend in CS:GO with the Howl weapon skin.

Many German banks offer photo cards. Customers can upload a photo that’s then printed on the background. When ordering such a card, you have to agree to the terms that you are the copyright owner of the photos. Many things like faces, logos, and just plain color, are not allowed. The bank needs to verify the photo, of course. These individual cards usually cost about 10 EUR extra. Could it be done? Sure. Should it be done? I would say no. But if someone wants such a card, I don’t really care.

From a company‘s perspective, I wouldn’t want that. The card is the main touchpoint for a payment product right now. I would want to control the brand image here. This would be more important for me than entertaining a customer‘s urge for individuality.

Some Danish banks does however still offer this.


#11

Only pre-defined designs.
