I believe that the impression that the layout of smart cards such as membership cards is set in stone can lead to visual fatigue for cardholders even if the layout is refined. Over time, they will ignore its existence. If there is a market, there is a demand. Therefore, thanks to the efforts of scientists, a card that can change the layout of smart cards at will was born. --Visible Card.

The visual card originated in Europe, the United States and Japan, and has been widely used rapidly. Catering, entertainment, retail, transportation, health care and other fields have been successfully applied to a considerable number of fields and industries. In recent years, the application of visual products in other countries and regions has shown a rapid growth trend, especially in Hong Kong, accounting for 10% of the total number of visual cards issued worldwide (100 million) in 2004.

Visual cards are still a new product in China. In recent years, China has started to introduce visual duplication card products, and they have been successfully applied in entertainment, food and beverage, retail and other fields. However, the share and utilization rate of the new concept of visual card products in China is still quite low compared to the relatively mature smart card products in terms of technology and market, thus visual card products in China have a broad market prospect.

3.2 Visual card application market

Visual cards have been widely used in Europe, America, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other developed countries and regions, such as commercial retail, transportation, healthcare, culture and entertainment. As digital consumption and smart card consumption have become the mainstream consumption mode in business society, enterprises will make full use of various more creative consumption modes and better service features to compete for consumer groups, and personalized visual products have a broad market prospect in China. And more and more fields and industries will start to use visual card products, such as entertainment, medical beauty liquid, automobile, catering, retail, public transportation and other industries.
