Debit cards are something that we may use every day and having a boring card can be a real drag. So some banks and debit card providers are now offering ways to make debit cards cool, customised objects that stand out in your wallet.
One of the most common personalising features for a debit card is the card’s colour. Every debit card provider will be different when it comes to choices, so to find out what options you have with your provider be sure to speak to someone there or look on their website.
Images, Photos And More
Some debit card providers now give customers the option of choosing a their own image for the background of the card.
This option allows you to see your family, friends, favourite landscape or memory every time you get out your card and make it stand out from all the rest. It will generally be an advertised feature in banks and on debit card information booklets, so keep an eye out for different options.
ANZ also has a range of images to choose from for Access debit cardholders. Their image library contains 15 different categories to choose from including popular, texture, travel, sport, Australia and animals.
Simply head over to on their Design My Card website, select the ANZ Access card option, choose and design and fill out your banking details.
Existing and new cardholders can also take advantage of ANZ personalisation options by selecting one of their own images and uploading it to the website.
Images are subject to approval and will not be accepted if they are trademarked or have logos on them, but otherwise you are free to upload what ever you want. You can optimise any photo for Design My Card by using the following steps:
- Check the dimensions of the image
- Use a basic image editing program to make the dimensions 480 x 480 pixels
- Make sure the image is saved with one of these file extensions: jpeg, jpg, bmp, gif or tiff (most of the time it will be jpg or gif anyway)
There is also a basic preview and editor option on the website to help you see what the card will look like.
Customising debit cards is a great way to make it stand out in your wallet and create a more individual experience. With these options, you can like what you see every time.
