GIFT CARDS By Chronos Marketing

Anyone looking to get their Plastic Gift cards in time for X-Mas season. Any orders placed the week of Nov 16 - Nov 20th and approve the design for print, will be getting them by approx Dec 7th - Dec 11th.

With the holiday rush, our printing press is running overtime to get these jobs out to our customers.

Keep that in mind for those that want to get the cards before the holidays in December.

Don't leave it to the last minute as we cannot rush order your job and bypass everyone else that is waiting in line. If we rush deliver it to you, expect to pay premium for that....just not worth it. SO PLAN AHEAD.

Quantities Available:

100, 200, 300, 500, 1k, 2k, 3k, 5k, 10k, 15k, 25k, 50k, 100k

Volume discounts.
We print Full Color Front and Back (full color on back no extra charge, it's included standard from Chronos Marketing)

We offer options such as:
Standard Plastic Cards as well as...
Clear/Frosted Cards
Custom Die Cut Shapes
Flat Number Printing
Raised Numbers/Lettering (like Credit Card)
Barcoding
Signature Strips
Magnetic Strips
Gold/Silver Cards
Metal Cards
Smart Chip Cards
and more...

We can pretty much do anything you want.....If you've seen it, we can do it. (for a fee of course)

Please email all inquiries to info@ChronosMarketing.com

We ask that you please do not PM us with inquiries. You need to email us directly at the email address listed above. All PM's will just get a response of "please email us." So save yourself the time of typing it twice.

Re: GIFT CARDS By Chronos Marketing

Ordered mine last week, looking forward to getting them. It was my first experience working with Chronos and won't be my last. From concept to final design in less than 24 hours, with lots of back & forth to test ideas and fine tune. I even got some of my customers involved too, getting their input on choices, etc. I think my gift card sales will do well this year. Thanks, Dean!

Re: GIFT CARDS By Chronos Marketing

let me ask a question. i asked my merchant company who processes my visa and MC transactions about git cards and he told me they offer a JUMP START program where I get 4000 transactions a year and i get 500 gift cards which I choose from 30 designs and there is NO upfront fee BUT i need to pay $40 per month? so $480 per year to offer gift cards versus a paper gift certificate....seems to me the monthly cost outweighs having the gift cards...anyone know of a better program or service...I dont believe I will do THAT much business of gift cards to offset the $40 monthly fee...? any thoughts?

Re: GIFT CARDS By Chronos Marketing

looks like numbers paper certificates is my best bet...although a the plastic gift card does look great but seems across the board the monthly fee does not offset the revenue per month....any one else do a large volume in gift cards>?

Re: GIFT CARDS By Chronos Marketing

Just get some preprinted numbered gift cards in different denominations. Sell them as your would your paper gift certificates. They are really cheap in comparison to specalized printed cards.

Re: GIFT CARDS By Chronos Marketing

Jacked. Every customer i deal with in regards to Plastic Gift cards, they track them either manually or with their tanning software (if it permits).

This way, your gift cards can be re-used, FOREVER.

Paper gift certificates, although a bit cheaper in price, not only don't look as nice as plastic cards, but they get tossed and you have to reorder. So in the long run (basically after your 2nd re-order of the paper certificates) you're saving money! And they look 100 times better and more professional.

If your merchant services permit, we do offer gift cards with magnetic stripe for encoding, as well as the smart card chips that you see on the new credit cards. IF YOUR MERCHANT SERVICES ALLOW OTHER CARDS OTHER THAN THEIR OWN TO BE USED.

Plastic Cards can be tracked the same way as paper ones you use.

The finished product that we produce is similar to those you've seen at HomeDepot, Best Buy, Starbucks...etc... They are top quality!

email me if you want get some pricing info on Gift Cards.

Dean.

Re: GIFT CARDS By Chronos Marketing

Also, Some merchants permit outside cards purchased from anywhere or you can buy from them. They just charge a per swipe fee like a credit card. If that is the case, then you can get them from me.

Most merchants have lots of choices of designs, but they are flowers and coffee mugs...not designed specifically for your needs. I can also do co-op if you work with Devoted Creations, or ETS lotions etc...you can get reimbursed by them for a portion of your marketing. I custom design your cards to look like whatever you want, from scratch.


We also offer the thinner plastic type cards. So anyone that has a high end salon and wants high end plastic Business Cards....it's definitely the way to go. Yes, it's more expensive than regular business cards...so it's not for everyone. But some people have $500k invested in their buildouts or have very high end salons and keep that look going throughout, down to even the business cards.

Re: GIFT CARDS By Chronos Marketing

Din surprise if you are still offering the same services in market. because your post was very old but now should need to re share again with community. now people are searching more than 30% time on social media websites other than Google because here you guys or like us can respond quick so that's why it helps both customers and buyers.
