You can’t customize any Capital One credit card at the moment. In the past, you could personalize it with your own photo or an image from their online gallery. The customization was free. All you needed was an active Capital One card account in good standing. The steps were pretty simple:
Under Account Settings, select “Change Card Image.”
Upload your own picture or select an image from the Image Card gallery.
Click the Get Started button.
Edit your image (sizing, cropping, etc.)
Submit the image.
Capital One used to review all images sent to make sure they met their acceptance guidelines. You could see a copy of the guidelines online when logging in to your account. Capital One approved or denied any image at their discretion. Images containing copyrighted material, any visible trademarks or logos, or celebrities (without their consent) would not be accepted. Capital One could also deny an image for poor quality. Once Capital One approved the image, they mailed the customized card to you at no cost.
Unfortunately, Capital One credit cards cannot be customized at the moment. Their designs used to include a large gallery of stock images, metal cards or any personal image you’d like to customize your card with. Capital One let you pick from their pre-made photos and designs (e.g. American Flags, flowers, sports images, animals and more). Or, you could just upload your own photo and have it printed on your card. You weren't able to choose the design for a brand new card, but you could get a replacement card with the new design at any time for free.… read full answer

As far as the approval timeline goes, you could be instantly approved for a Capital One credit card if you apply online. On the other hand, Capital One may need longer to verify your information and decide whether you’re creditworthy enough for the card. If you don’t get a decision right away, you can usually expect to hear back within 7-10 business days. That means you should get your Capital One credit card 14-24 [business] days after submitting an application, assuming you’re approved.
Here’s how long it takes for a Capital One credit card to arrive:
New cards take up to 14 calendar days to arrive, following account approval. You can’t pay to speed this up.
Replacement cards take 4-6 business days to arrive. You can cut that timeframe in half by paying $16.
It can take 7-10 business days to get approved for a Capital One credit card, if you’re not approved instantly when you apply.
You can expect to have your Capital One credit card in hand anywhere from 2 weeks to a month after you apply.
You can use your Capital One credit card before it arrives if you download the Capital One app. The app shows you all your card details.
