Our high quality
library cards

Libraries throughout the UK use Plastic Card Services® for the very best quality barcoded library cards.

Library Cards

As experts in barcode symbology, we produce library cards which read reliably throughout the life cycle of the card.

Peace of Mind

Our internal quality control measures ensure all library cards we produce arrive at their destination ready for use:

  • Every library card is camera checked for print quality and barcode readability
  • Each batch QC checked using calibrated barcode verification systems which qualify the readability grading
  • Automatic anti-duplication systems ensure duplicate library cards cannot be created

Barcoded cards can be provided with either standard eye-readable characters or special characters for partially-sighted people.

Green solutions

To meet environmental policy directives, we are urging libraries to choose the more eco alternative to the standard library card, which is made with eco degradeable materials and uses waterless print processes in its production.
