Cartamundi has been producing cards for over 250 years and never stopped innovating. We have a plethora of special techniques to enrich our partners’ cards. We offer various special printing techniques on different substrates, but have also developed a range of interactive iCards. These are cards that interact in different ways with smartphones, tablets and other digital devices.  We are part of the PING ecosystem with some European partners to bring RFID/NFC cards to the market. These are regular cards, look and feel like regular cards, but they have a microchip and an antenna embedded in the card. This allows the cards to communicate with an NFC reader available in tablets or smartphones and any other hardware devices. By 2016 there will be 1.8 Billions of NFC handsets worldwide. As you can imagine, this opens a lot of opportunities to integrate digital into card and board games.
