The design is all yours! You design front, Nōwn provides the requirements for the back of the card. You may make modifications to the back but the minimum legal requirements must still be present. You may choose your own printer and designer, provided that they can meet all of the card requirements. If you wish to be connected with a printer, we can connect you with our preferred partner. If you wish to be connected, please contact your sales representative!

Regardless of which printer you choose, Nōwn must first approve the back of the card before any printing is done. Once the card is approved Nōwn will send the gift card numbers directly to the printer. Only the gift card numbers that Nōwn provides may be used on the gift cards, no other numbers may be used. The printer must destroy the card numbers immediately upon gift card printing and no one else will receive these gift card numbers. The merchant may not see the gift card numbers ahead of time due to security protocol.
