Magnetic stripe cards, also called magstripe cards, are used today for loyalty, membership, access, payment and gift cards. Blank plastic mag stripe cards are fully customizable with the use of a desktop ID card printer or central issuance system.
Mag cards, made of PVC or PVC-PET plastic material, are the typical credit card size of 3.375" x 2.125," with a mag stripe on the back, either High Coercivity (HiCo) or Low Coercivity (LoCo).
HiCo cards are usually black in color and are encoded with a magnetic field of 4000 or 2750 Oersted (Oe). LoCo cards are usually brown in color and are encoded at a low-intensity magnetic field of 300 Oersted.
