Overseas this is becoming a more widespread habit to customize your credit card or debit card with images as desired. Issuers of credit cards are more than happy to give customers the opportunity to make more lively an otherwise anonymous plastic rectangle with drawings or pictures. It can be the bank who offers various standard images or to take charge of customizing the total. After sending the desired image in digital format by the customer there is also the possibility to buy skin adhesive applied as a cover strictly only on the front side and above the number of the credit card. The back should not be touched because the reader will not be able to read the magnetic stripe.
The habit we have of artistically decorating credit cards is still not widespread as it begins to make its way customizing the credit card with the photo of the owner which in fact has a more practical than aesthetic purpose. It is in order to increase the level of security allowing those who accept payment to ensure the identity of the owner in addition to checking the signature. Obviously, it is desirable that the habit will spread and become the norm so the novelty can reach a genuinely meaningful level of security. There are many European credit cards that offer this option.
How to choose the photos for the credit card? More or less like you would for an identity card, for a passport or driver’s license. Although in this case you can afford to smile more than in the cases cited. With digital cameras, smartphones, tablet, or webcam you can easily perform various self portraits and then try to cut them out according to a square shape and shrink them until you get the desired result.
