Get tram, bus and train passengers in Greater Manchester moving with a uniquely designed, printed and finished NXP Mifare DESFire RFID smart card. The card had to work, all the more it had to eclipse the TfL Oyster card.
This plastic card project was jam-packed with creative card-smithery, requiring a whole new level of plastic card printing and finishing. Coupled with RFID card technology we pushed smart ticketing to a whole new level.
What we did
Prototyping. Ink and finish development. Testing and Certification. We handled it all.
Ink and finish R&D
Our new matt+ card finish really set off the vibrant Pantone ink colours and served as a perfect base for the spot gloss effect.
Smart card certification tests
Once scrutinised by ITSO to ensure they were fit for purpose, Manchester’s unique smart card was cleared for travel.
