A magnetic stripe card is a specific type of plastic card that has a special material attached to it. This material, a magnetic stripe or magstripe, allows the card to save specific data.
The science behind a magnetic stripe is remarkable. With a strip of magnetic material, the card becomes capable of storing data. This is accomplished by changing the magnetism of the particles on the band. When you swipe the card past a reading head, the data can be retrieved and read. The data that the magnetic stripe card contains can also be changed when necessary.
Magnetic stripe cards are very useful, especially for businesses. Banks use these cards all the time, and this has made a lot of our lives easier and much more convenient. You can also incorporate magnetic stripe cards in your business, by creating magnetic stripe debit cards, gift cards or loyalty cards, for your customers.
