Brand Refresh

In 2020, it will be our 10th year anniversary of supplying the Australian market with quality plastic cards. Therefore, we felt it makes perfect sense for us to welcome this important date with a brand update!

Company Logo

In this update, we refreshed our company logo and also did a complete makeover of our company website. Firstly, the logo incorporated our key business which is Smart Card and the CMYK chip represented Printing. Next is our website, which should now be much more responsive and provides easier access to all the information.

Going forward, we will be equipping our website and social media pages with more contents. These include some educational videos showing the different kinds of products we offered.

We, the entire team at The Smart Card Company thank you for the continued support for the last 9 years and we look forward to more exciting projects with each of you!


2019 Smart Card Updates

2019 has kicked off very nicely for us at The Smart Card Company!

We had been busy working our way through the orders from the Festive season and will soon have our delivery time frame back to normal. From Motels and Hotels ordering their card supplies for the season to the tens of thousands of Gift Cards and Membership Cards we have printed for various retail businesses, pubs, bars, and clubs around Australia and New Zealand!

The team would like to thank you every single one of our clients for the support all these years and look forward to working with all of you in 2019 to come up with more creative ideas!

If you have an idea in mind about your business, please get in touch and we will put your idea into a reality in no time!

Choosing the right hotel lock system

This post is for Hotel Managers to consider before choosing a lock supplier for your property.

There are a number of brands targeting the hotel market, namely Assa Abloy (Vingcard Elsafe, Kaba, Saflok, and Onity. Each of them has their own system and features that might suit your property’s particular needs.

It is often that managers only focus on the costs of the installation, i.e. costs per lock; without looking into the long term picture which will include the costs of Smart Cards that are compatible with the lock.

For example, a lock supplier may include encryption on their system which will restrict your ability to source cards elsewhere. This can prove very costly in the future, as some of the encrypted cards cost over 50% more than the ordinary ones.

So, it is smart to review the entire costs before settling with a particular supplier. 

Feel free to send us an email if you need some advice. We will also try and assist whenever we can to lower your property’s spending on Hotel Room Keys.
