Gift Card Details
ECRS partners with two of the best gift card vendors in the country to provide you with high-quality gift cards at competitive prices. The PIN-protected gift card option is highly recommended as sequential barcoded gift cards can be easily guessed, allowing customers to steal funds from legitimate card holders by simply guessing the next gift card’s barcode sequence. Please consider this when deciding on gift card type for your business.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long does it take to receive my card order?
Production of your order will start as soon as the proof is signed and returned, and you have approved the quote. For sequential gift cards (least secure option), it takes approximately 7-10 business days for delivery. For PIN-protected barcoded gift cards, it takes approximately 2-4 weeks for delivery.
Q: What does PIN-protected mean?
Gift cards that are PIN-protected have a scratch off panel on the back that can only be scratched off after purchase, meaning the gift card holder is the only person who knows the PIN after scratching it off the card. This adds an extra layer of security so that gift card numbers cannot be easily guessed.
Q: What does sequential barcode mean?
An example of a sequential barcode is 9100002. With sequential barcodes, the next gift card barcode number would be 9100003, after that would be 9100004. This makes it easy for others to guess a gift card number and potentially use funds from another legitimate gift card holder.
Q: Can I order a Rush service for my order?
Yes, for an additional fee, your order can be rushed. The card production and shipment time will be reduced to 5 business days or less.

Q: What is the digital printing quality like?
Digital printing is a high-quality, 4-color printing method available for short or long runs at a cost that is less expensive than offset printing. It will allow for a full bleed of the artwork to the edges of the card. Digital printing also allows for color and graphics on the back of the card at an additional cost.
