Dynamic Card Solutions, a leading provider of systems that allow banks and credit unions to issue credit and debit cards on-site, announced it is close to receiving a patent on its process.
The company has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Office of Patent and Trademark for its 'Real Time Card Printing Systems and Methods." The Notice of Allowance is the last step before the patent is issued, the company said.
The technology enables the instant issuance of any unembossed financial card - including debit, credit, ATM or prepaid cards, the compansy said. This technology includes the ability to print standard background designs, custom images, cardholder's name, expiry date, logos, PAN and CVV/CVV2 codes in real time on full, over-the-edge retransfer film, instead of directly on the card, using inhibitor panels for areas that the retransfer film will not adhere to - such as the signature box and magnetic stripe.
"We are extremely pleased about the patent claims being allowed and subsequently issued for our unembossed technology printing method," said Ron Zanotti, senior vice president of DCS. "DCS pioneered the instant issuance of unembossed financial cards using retransfer printers with inhibitor ribbon panels, and this patent validates our role in the industry as a leader as well as our ongoing commitment to offer innovative card issuing technology to our customers."
