The best custom credit card designs are the Capital One and Wells Fargo custom photo cards and Discover’s cassette tape design. But for people whose design preferences change regularly, the best custom credit card design might be one of the temporary credit card “skins” from a service such as CUCU or Tenstickers.
These companies offer custom stickers that decorate your credit card without hiding your chip or card numbers, though they will hide the card issuer’s logo in many cases. They’re easy to apply yourself, so no need to send in your card. Plus, many credit card skin design services advertise that their products are removable and leave no residue, so you can change to a new look as often as you want. Prices for credit card skins vary - CUCU skins start at $5 and Tenstickers skins start at $2.50.
Some companies out there will even turn your plastic credit card into a metal one – EMV chip cards included. You will have to mail in your card, however, so it’s only worth considering with a frozen card or one you haven’t activated yet. One example of such a service is metal-creditcard.com. The company won’t be able to duplicate your card issuer’s branding symbols due to copyright, but they can etch almost anything else onto your metal card. They’ve been in business for 5 years and have an A+ rating according to Better Business Bureau. Most reviews elsewhere online show positive or neutral opinions about the company.
But if you’re looking for a permanent custom design on your credit card, you should try to go through your card issuer. Capital One and Wells Fargo allow customers to upload their own images for custom credit cards. Discover, on the other hand, has a number of design options to choose from, but won’t let you upload your own. These designs are part of the card itself, so once you have your custom-designed credit card, you won’t have to worry about it peeling off. You can also request a replacement card with a different design when you want to change it.
If you’re not sure whether your card issuer allows custom credit card designs, call the issuer’s customer service line.
