Gift Card and Loyalty Card Terminology
Cards can have a magnetic stripe, barcodes, names and/or numbers.
Magnetic Stripe: Lo-Co (Low Coercivity) Magnetic Strip or Hi-Co (High Coercivity) Magnetic Strip.
Magnetic Stripe Tracks: A magnetic stripe can have up to 3 tracks. Most gift cards encode on Track 1 or Track 2. A few encode on both tracks. The magnetic stripe track is determined by your gift or loyalty card software.
Barcodes: The most common ones are Code 39 (3 of 9), Code 128, Codabar and UPCA. Barcodes are printed in black. The type of barcode used is determined by your gift or loyalty card software.
