Franklin, Ky.-based Franklin Bank & Trust has rolled out the CardWizard software and FCP 20/20 printers by DCS (Englewood, Colo.) to instantly issue unembossed Visa debit cards at the branch.

With the technology, Franklin Bank hopes to provide added convenience to new customers who wish to open a checking account, or existing customers who have lost their card and need another issued.

Customers can choose to decorate their new cards with a variety of images. Once a background is selected, DCS' CardWizard software transfers all personalization data to the FCP 20/20 where the "flat" card is securely and immediately printed in high-definition color onto both sides of blank card stock.

Also included is an advanced thermal printing of the three-digit CVV2 code on the back of the card, replacing the older rear indent method. According to DCS, the FCP 20/20's printing process provides a protective film overlay for greater permanence and durability, protecting the CVV2 code and all other printed data including background images, logos, PAN, cardholder name and expiration date.
