We have found Universal Smart Cards to be totally dependable, very professional, willing to assist and help in every way required - David Lockey, University College Dublin


We can offer reduced lead times, usually 2-3 weeks on printed cards and next day on stocked white cards, including all magnetic stripe and contactless cards such as NXP MIFARE® Classic, MIFARE Plus®,  MIFARE® DESFire® and iClass and proximity cards (125KHz).


EducationHaving worked with educational establishments over the last decade, we appreciate that enrollment can be a very labor intensive, stressful time. Therefore, we offer a bureau service where you can outsource student & staff ID card production. Cards can be ordered and ready for student registration, alleviating any on-the–day issues which many establishments face when they print cards in-house. This also allows internal resources to be utilized to their full potential, without the added worry and stress of producing enrollment cards. Find out more about our bureau service.
