Gift

Gift cards – increasingly becoming the gift of choice – are big business. Retailers value their flexibility and security. For that they turn to Thames Technology to deliver.

Our Gift Card Expertise

Helping you with the latest technology

Technology is our strength. Let us recommend the best set-up for your gift card programme.

Choose Your Material

From traditional to eco-friendly, we’ll help you choose the material that fits your brand and values.

Impactful Finishes

Our printing can make your cards stand out. That’s the power of embossing, foil overlays, metallic finishes and innovative print technology

Engaging Shapes

We can increase the reach of your marketing campaign with cards in all kinds of shapes and sizes.

Open and Closed Loop

What’s best - open or closed loop cards? We are equally adept at both and can advise you on the best choice for you.

Industry Recognised

Our reputation as an efficient, flexible and secure partner for gift card issuers is borne from being committed to best practice. Nearly 20 years’ of Mastercard and Visa certification ensures you get the highest level of security.

We are active members of the UK Gift Card & Voucher Association and know the industry inside out.

Innovative Design

In an increasingly competitive market, your brand needs to stand out more than ever. This is where our designers come into their own. Using their experience they’ll work with you to develop the best creative work to connect with your customers and properly reflect your brand.

From traditional and eco-friendly materials, to a range of finishes and shapes, right through to tailor-made packaging and distribution, you can customise to your heart’s content. And naturally, we’ll be there to guide you through every step of the way.

Secure Packaging & Fulfilment

It takes years of experience and a high level of expertise to package and distribute cards securely. Fortunately, at Thames Technology we’ve got both. Whether it is for delivery to retail outlets, direct to your customers, or stored securely, we are dedicated to safely fulfilling your order.

Services like our tamper-evident sealed packs are regarded as being more than efficient. We use our state of the art automated systems supported by our highly-specialised hand fulfilment team. Whatever your desired approach, we take great pride in our security.

Flexible & Responsive

Agility and responsiveness go hand-in-hand. At Thames Technology, we achieve it through sourcing the very best hardware and software. This investment in technology – placing innovation at the heart of our operations – enables an efficient production and management process for our customers.

It’s something we’ve always strived to offer, from being involved in the UK’s very first gift card programme. And today, we can support any security, personalisation or mounting requirements. With greater capacity, shorter lead times and a permanently flexible approach to business.

Here's what people say about us...

“We have worked with Thames Technology for over 13 years on our loyalty and gift card programmes. Over that period they managed the full rebrand and ongoing supply of our highly successful Beauty Club loyalty scheme and produced open loop MasterCard prepaid travel packs for us. Their ability to offer conceptual production sampling for our Christmas Gift Card made it so much easier for us to make the right decision on the final selection. Thames has consistently met our needs and helped us succeed with all these projects.” Sam Clements, Senior Print Project Manager, Debenhams.
“Tesco Clubcard is one of the most uniquely helpful things we do and it’s our way of saying thank you to our customers for shopping with us. We’ve listened to customers and we’re delighted to have made Clubcard even simpler and easier to use by working in partnership with Thames to introduce a brand new contactless card.” Simon Pepperdine, Tesco Clubcard Project Manager
