Card Concepts Inc
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We manufacture debit card systems for Laundromats so customers have alternative ways to start machines rather then quarters. Our flagship product 'LaundryCard' removes the quarter devices completely from the washers and dryers and replaces them with card readers. The customer purchase and add value to their LaundryCards via an in store kiosk. We sell these systems to Laundromat owners all over the US.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We have a new product that we are announcing that we need a brochure for. The new product is called FasCard and it allows store owners to add a card reader to as many washers and dryers as they wish that will allow them to accept a credit or debit card.
The new brochure is to introduce this new product and highlight a new wireless card reader we have developed.
One of the biggest advantages to this new product is that it does not require the store owner to completely convert the machines to debit card and still allows them to accept quarters. This system will not only provide sales information for the credit card transactions on each machine but will also provide the coin sales on each machine.
Fascard systems are accessible via online log in and all sales and configuration information are available.
See the attached features document for more information we want to display on this brochure. I've also attached our current brochure for our other product as a point of reference. The new brochure does not have to look like this but I think it provides some back story on where we have been. This new product is a departure from what we have been doing and demonstrates where we are heading in the future.
Our customers (Owners of Laundromats) vary in age and background. Generally people invest in a Laundromat because it requires little time, has no inventory, very few employees. This allows them to do other things but still have a fairly 'recession proof' income.
Customers are always looking for ways to market and separate their location from their competitors, adding FasCard (credit card acceptance) is once of those differences that may help them market their store.
They are attracted to products that are easy to set up and use, they want quality products that will last many years without problems.
