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:
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.
We can bring the the product specifications of integrated cards and integrated labels to life with samples and visuals. Our Design Team can even work as your brand guardian, adding value to your project through graphic design.
Many of our clients ask us to design and print core artwork onto the base stock, giving them a supply of professionally produced sheets that they can overprint with variable information on their own laser printers. Equally, if you are printing several personalised sheets at a time, we can explore the efficiencies that you’ll gain in time, printer consumables, fulfilment and mailing costs, by allowing us to securely handle the whole project for you! Our secure, GDPR compliant, production and print mailing capabilities are tried and trusted by leading organisations across the UK.
Integrated cards and peel out labels are some of the most technical and complicated business print to produce. However the results are so worthwhile as they can often make business processes far easier, saving time and reducing errors, whilst positioning you as a market-leading, highly efficient organisation. We’ll work behind the scenes to project manage all elements of your integrated card and label production, you can gladly take the credit!
