Q: How long does it take to manufacture my order?
The manufacturing process for a standard plastic postcard takes approximately 7 business days from the time you approve your proofs. For orders over 25,000 the turn time may take longer. Plastic postcards with extra features such as scratch-offs or mag stripes also require additional days in production and can take up to 14 business days.
Q: Can I use the term "Gift Card" even though this is really a coupon?
DynamiCard distributes ‘promotional plastic gift cards‘. This is different from gift cards which you purchase. Meaning no cash was ever paid for it. Per California Department of Consumer Affairs, “There are many exceptions to the gift card laws. They don’t cover bank cards which can have lots of fees attached. Also, they don’t apply to promotional gifts or those given away for charitable purposes or for perishable foods.”
