Hotel Key Cards: Magnetic Stripe & RFID
Custom Hotel Key Cards are a highly visible vehicle to deliver important messages that you want guests and event attendees to remember. These interactive products are often viewed 5 – 10 times per day – we try to help you get the most out of those impressions! Don’t miss a great chance to be seen and remembered!
Some examples of uses for the hotel key cards include:
- Hotel Branding: Add a photo of the hotel, describe your special amenities, or just be sure it has your phone number to take their next reservation! The hotel key card is often the one reminder your guests will take with them so they remember their experience at your hotel.
- Conferences/Trades Shows: hotel key cards are a great way to show booth location, product information, or trade show messages. We offer an economical means to customize any event held at your property.
- Meetings: Hotel key cards are a great way to provide meeting highlights, meeting agendas, or key meeting messages that need to be re-enforced.
- Training: Use the key card to summarize the key elements of the training session.
- Other: This space can be used for product launches, as well a stylish way for bridal parties to include their guests in this special event.

RFID Key Cards
We provide high quality RFID Key Cards which is a newer technology in the hospitality industry. RFID Key Cards make it easier for the guest, as they are contact-less – just wave in front of the lock to open the door. The RFID Key Cards are more expensive than traditional magnetic stripe key cards, but the user convenience and longer life / less maintenance is why many hotels are going this route. We work with all major RFID systems, with the exception of Ving, which makes it hard for outside vendors to work with their locks. We also supply RFID wristbands and Fobs which allow the guest to carry their “key” with them anywhere they go in style!
We offer a variety of colors for your key cards. These can be used as employee cards, special guests, or use a bright color for your everyday key cards!
We help provide casinos with special cards for their special guests.
Other Key Cards: ID Cards
We have also helped out customers with ID cards for employees, as well as “all access” keys.

Turn an Old Hotel Room-Key Into an iPhone Stand
by Rick Broida (from http://blogs.bnet.com/businesstips/?p=5125)
iPhones, iPod Touches, and various smartphones are great for watching movies and TV shows on planes and trains, but some kind of stand is absolutely essential. (Take it from someone who’s spent two hours holding his iPhone at an upright angle.)
If you still have your hotel room-key floating around in your pocket, you can pull a Macgyver move and turn it into a solid, stable iPhone stand.
Instructables has the instructions, but there’s nothing terribly tricky about this: Just fold the card into the shape shown in the photo. (This should also work with any similar piece of plastic, such as a used Starbucks card or gift card.) You may have to fiddle a bit with the folds to get just the right viewing angle, and not all cards will stay in their folded positions.
But in a pinch, this is a perfect way to prop up your phone. And it’s a lot sturdier than the business-card stand. Plus, you get the satisfaction of using that room key for something practical instead of just tossing it into a landfill.
