Plastic Card Printing - Contactless Cards

Contactless Cards Allstate began producing Plastic contact less smart chip technology 2 years ago. Since then, we continue to lead the industry and card market by delivering the latest in contact less cards. As a card manufacturer, we want to offer high-quality cards at a competitive price.

The Technology

Contact less cards use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to transmit card information to the reader. In most instances, there is no need to sign a receipt, input a personal identification number (PIN) or hand the card to the cashier. This expedites the transaction for both the consumer and business. Contact less cards are also equipped with a magnetic strip so they can still be used in traditional swipe machines.

Industries using contact less smart card technology include government and corporate ID cards, transit fare payment cards, passports and visas, and financial payment cards. Leading financial and transit institutions have adopted contact less payment technology to offer customers increased convenience and speed when making purchases. Cards no longer have to leave the consumers hands; they are simply waived in front of a device to complete the transaction. Consumers don't have to bother with change, cash or swiping their card.

Contactless is Secure

The contact less card has a higher level of security and protection than that available with traditional cards. Contact less payment cards utilize technology that brings more security to the card holder by making it almost impossible to skim the card information. The cards use microprocessor chips that decipher the information and use the CPU of the chip to check and authenticate the messages - all of which are encrypted. Each transaction is unique and digitally signed, which prevents duplication and data theft. Cards that require the highest level of security use contact less technology based on the international standard ISO/IEC 14443.4
