DESCRIPTIONS:

Credit card designs are often boring and bland. You end up having the exact same card as thousands of other cardholders. Luckily, there are some issuing banks that now allow you to individualize your card by putting custom images or pictures right on it. For example, both Standard Chartered and HSBC Philippines now issue credit cards that are uniquely yours. Perhaps you want a picture of your children, your latest trip, your pets, or even yourself on the card. It’s entirely up to you!

Take note, though – you can’t just put ANY image on the card. You need to stick to wholesome images that do not infringe on legal rights of other people or entities. The following images are not allowed:

1. Registered trade names, logos, labels, trademarks, or brands, UNLESS you have secured a written permission from the proprietary owner.

2. Sexual pictures / pictures with sexual content or violent behavior, nudity, liquor, guns, and gambling.

3. Sensitive personal data like your personal identification number (PIN), your address, or phone number.

4.  Images of other people who are related to you, UNLESS you have secured a written permission from that person stating clearly that he/she is allowing you to print his / her image on your credit card.

5. Images referencing public events (e.g. Olympic Games), UNLESS you have secured a written permission from the event organizer.

6.  Political images, especially those considered by many to be offensive, such as the Nazi swastika, the “KKK” image of Ku Klux Klan, etc.

Some of the common images that other credit card holders put on their cards include their wedding pictures, pictures of their family, sceneries (like your favourite beach), vacation pictures that make them happy, and even copyright free images downloaded from the web. Use your common sense; if you think that an image or symbol is copyrighted or offensive, don’t use it. The bank will just disapprove your picture, anyway, and you will just waste time.
