Thames Technology launches exciting new range of metal payment cards

Share this post

Thames Technology is delighted to launch its new ELEMETAL range of high-quality metal payment cards, offering the ultimate in style and sophistication for premium banking customers.

With support from its sister company AmaTech, well-known for developing the world’s first metal card with a dual interface, Thames Technology can now offer the most diverse portfolio of metal payment cards in the market.

Recognising the different target markets and budgets of payment card providers, the new ELEMETAL range covers the widest spectrum of quality stretching from the imposing solid gold card, crafted exclusively by the Royal Mint, through to the Fusion card, featuring a stainless-steel core sandwiched by ultra-thin PVC, targeted at the mass affluent market.

In between sit a series of highly desirable Veneer, Dual, Hybrid and Full metal cards, which offer a reassuringly weighty feel and quality paired with a versatile range of finishes including engraving, brushed or polished sheen, exposed metal edging and the ability to support unique and full colour branding.

With popularity of metal cards surging in the past few years, both traditional banks and Fintechs increasingly choose the prestige and exclusivity that this material offers to reflect their brands and enable them to attract high net worth clients and influencers.

Thames Technology is ideally placed to support any payment provider through their metal journey to providing secure payment options with enhanced user experience. It starts with its creative services team, to support not only the card design but also the full unboxing experience to generate maximum impact. This is backed by unsurpassed production lead-times to ensure customers are not kept waiting, and can be rounded off with a complete fulfilment service from our experienced in-house teams to despatch new or replacement cards, relieving the burden on payment card providers.

Che Colford, General Manager at Thames Technology, comments:

“We are extremely proud to bring this versatile range of premium metal card products to the market and look forward to helping our clients create superior quality cards to expand their high-end customer base.”

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
