Embossed or not

Hi guys, who has recently had a new card?

I’m wondering if the new cards that are sent are still embossed details or are they nice non-embossed cards?

I believe the coral cards are still embossed. Plus and premium cards are not.

Can confirm. My joint card was replaced recently. Was embossed

For being at the cutting edge of all things banking, it’s the only card I have that is still embossed. :confused:

I don’t think a card being embossed really defines whether it is cutting edge or not.

Plenty of old cards were in-embossed for various reasons.

All of my bank cards and credit cards are embossed. I wish they weren’t, I could fit another couple of cards in my card wallet is they were all flat :cry:

Also depends if people define unembossed as cutting edge.

The unembossed Halifax EasyCash Visa Electron card I held until 2018 was clearly not at the cutting edge of banking.

Ha I feel all the original joint account cards are doing a round of renewals. I was pestered about mine a month or so ago and lo and behold my partner had to do hers a couple of weeks later! Think we signed up basically the first day they were allowed.
The new card was obviously embossed as said.

FYI - the technical term for “not embossed” is “thermal printed”

Also, thermal printed gives us a much wider character set (as you don’t need a physical model for each character). As a result, you can have accents and special characters on your name, which isn’t possible with embossed cards.

Another hidden perk of Monzo Plus we should advertise :eyes:

Fun fact, a few months ago we had someone who legally changed their name to a famous celebrity’s child’s name (I will not attempt to pronounce it) and wanted to have it printed on a card.

Not enclosing the celebrity’s name, but you can probably guess

Did you manage to do it in the end?

What about emoji?!

Yes. We printed it. Including the weird Latin Æ

Unfortunately our card manufacturers don’t support that. What a shame - it would have been revolutionary

Maybe the next time you put out for tender :thinking:

Do you support emoji in email addresses by chance?
