EMV® Contact & Contactless Solutions

We’ll help you to re-issue payment cards that meet EMV chip card technology standards.  Our EMV chip cards provide fraud protection against counterfeit, lost or stolen cards at the point-of-sale (POS).  EMV enabled contact and contactless payment cards increase protection for you and your customers through card authentication.

First Data helps broaden your card portfolio with a variety of payment cards including magnetic stripe, contactless, and EMV chip card technology.  Our digital print production allows you to customize your card design — engage your customers and help build brand loyalty. 


We also provide you with secure card processing tools.  Better compete in the changing payments marketplace with our advanced chip and contactless payment devices, or magnetic card readers. 

Laser Personalization

With First Data’s laser technology, we can help you target your elite portfolio customers, build brand loyalty and promote top-of-wallet use with laser personalization that’s unique – an option for both the front and the back of the card.


Our laser personalization enables standard text to be added as well as special security features.  If properly applied, laser personalization protects against alteration and reproduction – a good security solution.
