Peel out cards
At Systematic, we like items that do more than one thing! Printed sheets with peel out cards, sometimes called integrated cards, do just that. This item of business stationery is a means of correspondence with the added value of a printed card that is securely attached to the carrier sheet, until it’s removed by the recipient. Popular uses include membership cards, loyalty cards, helpline cards and discount vouchers.
Integrated cards come in a range of styles and can include features like numbering and barcodes:
- Peel out cards are printed to the face only
- Pop-out cards allows the cards to be printed on both sides
- With the aptly name butterfly cards, both sides of the card can be seen on the sheet at once, which allows you to personalise both sides of the card, yet when the integrated card is detached the sides sticks together, creating a card that has added thickness
- Dualam cards incorporate space for a signature or photo, as well as a protective laminate that can be sealed onto the card once the recipient has added these personal details
- BioCards are a new addition to the range of integrated cards, a plastic free, compostable option where both the matt coating and adhesive are created with an environmentally friendly aqueous base.
Peel out labels
Like their integrated card based counterpart, integrated labels are a flexible printed item that help our clients do business. They are particularly popular in the online retail and distribution sectors, as the delivery note and address labels can be simultaneously printed before an item is despatched, which reduces the risk of picking or packing errors!
Integrated labels are very versatile; glues can make the labels peelable or permanent, printing can range from single to full colour and labels come in a range of shapes, sizes and materials. There are recycled paper options as well as FSC® accredited paper, (Forest Stewardship Council®), which ensures that the raw material of wood fibre is sourced from sustainable forests.
At the most technical end of the scale, the product can include integrated magnets, or security features that lend themselves to parking permits and visitor passes.
