Phone Cards Now a World Wide Phenomena

Share Article

From their humble beginnings as prepaid phone cards in Europe in the 70s, to the sophisticated demands of world wide users, plastic card printer Card Printing US has met the challenge of new and innovative card designs, sizes, configurations and security features.

In the mid 1970s, the first prepaid phone cards appeared on the market in Italy to combat payphone vandalism. In the throes of a coin shortage, cards were introduced with a magnetic strip on the back for use in special phones to combat the shortage. Despite this great idea, the first cards were too thin and jammed frequently.

It actually took almost eleven years for a significant phone card product to take hold in the United States. Fast forward to today and phone cards have become a worldwide phenomena and are light years more advanced than the cards first used back in the 70s.

Enormous usage globally results in an equally massive demand for phone card printing services. One company on the cutting edge of phone card manufacture and supply is Card Printing US (a division of Tele-Pak Inc.)

"With phone cards firmly entrenched in just about every area of the world, we work with customers around the globe for their phone card printing needs," David Geyra from Card Printing US comments.

"We have invested considerably to ensure we are the most technically advanced phone card printing company out there. In fact, with the staggering amount of cards printed, diverse regional requirements and economic considerations, card printing companies like ours have had to create new and innovative card designs, sizes, configurations and security features to remain competitive," Geyra explains.

The development team at Card Printing US has been hard at work ensuring that current and potential customers get the best phone card printing services to meet their specific and diverse needs.

Some of their innovative advances have included creating a new line of Multi-PIN / Multi-Voucher cards aimed at satisfying the numerous requirements of developing markets. For example, they have created credit card size cards that can be split up into five separate cards. Another newer product includes large format ten pin cards.

Demand for all different types of phone cards shows no signs of letting up. In fact, industry experts predict that sales for the calling card industry alone will reach ten billion dollars per year by the year 2010.

Companies like Card Printing US will be well positioned to continue offering innovative, new and technically superior phone card printing services to meet the diverse needs of the global marketplace.
