You can choose from a limited number of Discover Card designs when you first open an account. They include beach scene, cassette tape, daisy and skyline backgrounds, as well as solid colors. But you will have to request a replacement card if you want to pick from the full list of Discover credit card designs. They aren’t available for your original Discover card. The good news is that getting a new Discover card design is free and shouldn’t take more than a week.
Here’s how Discover Card designs work:
Designs vary by card: The NHL® Discover it Card lets you add the logo of any of the National Hockey League’s 31 teams. Discover it Cash Back and Discover it® Miles start you with a limited selection of solid colors. And Discover it® chrome, Discover it® chrome for Students, and Discover it® for Students add a few more options to the initial mix (e.g. skyline, cassette, island, daisy or solid color).
Replacement cards come with more options: You can choose from more than 100 Discover Card designs for a replacement card.
You can change your card design: To change your card design, log into your account and select “Choose a Card Design.” Your new card will arrive in 4-6 business days.
You can’t submit your own photo: Some credit card companies will allow you to fully personalize a card by uploading a photo as your card background. Discover does not. You are limited to the designs offered on the Discover website.
Your old card will still work: You’ll get a new card when you change your card design. But your account number will be the same. This means your old card will continue to work until its expiration date. You can deactivate it by calling 1-800-347-2683.
Personalizing your credit card can be fun. But a card’s rewards, interest and fees are all more important than looks. Focus on those when searching for the best card for you. If you settle on Discover, you can rest assured there are plenty of Discover card designs to pick from.
The best Discover card design, in my opinion, is the cassette tape design. They also have a rainbow gradient design and a beach with palm trees. And if you like hockey, they have all the NHL team logos to pick from – if you get the NHL card. A friend of mine has the Avalanche one.
You get some pretty bland ones when you first get approved. If you care for that sort of thing, you can just go to their website, and request a replacement card, which will give you the chance to pick some flashy ones.
You can customize a Discover it Card from your online account. If you're applying for the Discover it Card, you can customize the card through the online application.

The new card will arrive in 4-6 business days and your credit card number will not change.… read full answer
Discover has over 140 different design and color options for their cards. You can request a replacement card color or design at any time, no need to wait until your card is lost or expired. If you’re not a current Discover cardholder, your options for card design will be limited for a new card. The full range of 140+ design and color options are only available for replacement cards.

Discover’s “unsecured” credit cards do not require a security deposit. Nearly all Discover cards are unsecured, so there are options to choose from whether you’re interested in cash back, travel rewards, low APRs, low fees or building credit. Just make sure to check your latest credit score as well as the cards’ approval requirements before you apply. Some unsecured Discover cards are easier to get than others.… read full answer
