ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (11/18/08)--There is strong demand for unembossed, “flat” card instant issuance among financial institutions, said Dynamic Card Solutions (DCS). DCS already has received orders for roughly 1,300 new card printers. About 98% of all global transactions are processed electronically, which eliminates the need for embossed characters, DCS said. DCS’ card printer, the FCP 20/20, is coupled with DCS’ CardWizard software, which allows credit unions to customize debit, credit and prepaid cards.
