First of all i don’t really like banks. Phew that wasn’t too difficult. Anyway, Barclays have decided to bring back personalised cards, and this time instead of £6, it’s free…for now. Now i don’t want to be talking about Barclays, but what i do want to talk about is this personalising your card business. Of course it is a marketing strategy to get more people on Barclays accounts and so on and so forth, but what i do like about this is that for those that do already have cards from this bank or even wish to, you can put a cool picture on your card and rid of that corporate design.
That’s why i thought i would do a blog post on this. The best thing about it is that you can put pictures of your own art or even pictures of yourself, if you like that sort of thing. I decided to make my own image, thus below.
It took eight versions to decide which one i was going to keep and after my selection above, i was able to complete my card and make it look like me, in some way, or form… yeah you get what i mean. It is likely that other banks will also begin doing this as it has become quite a successful strategy. There are still rules like, no copyrighted material, no celebrities, no promotional material and of course the favourite no inappropriate material… like aluminium. Here’s my final outcome for all that want my card details.
You actually thought i would give you my details. You’re better off just asking me. And why did i use this mysterious symbol you ask? Well, its mysterious so find out. Thanks for reading and safe banking.
