Ordering custom printed gift cards

You can order custom printed gift cards from our partner here.

Gift Card Lots

If you do not want to order gift cards from our gift card partner you can order Gift Card Lots directly from REV23. These lots are batches of valid gift card numbers which you can use to print your own gift cards or gift certificates.

Bar code specifications

REV23 gift card bar codes should be printed in Code 128 format.

Magstripe specifications

If you’re not using our partner, it is not recommended you use magnetic stripes and stick with bar codes. If you’re having magnetic stripes printed from a printer, they should understand what this means. You should be able to simply show them this section and provide your gift card numbers that you acquired from REV23 and they should be able to figure it out.

REV23 gift card magnetic stripes require two tracks. Replace the following fields with your preferred data.

Track 1: Must start with %B and end with ?
Track 2: Must start with ; and end with ?

%B[GIFTCARDNUMBER]^[ISSUERNAME]^9912023$[AMOUNT]$?
;[GIFTCARDNUMBER]=9912023[AMOUNT]?

Do not include the [ ] brackets. They are used to show data field placeholders only.

  • GIFTCARDNUMBER: The gift card number. Numeric only.
  • ISSUERNAME: The name of the card issuer -or- card holder. Alpha-numeric only, formatted as LASTNAME/FIRSTNAME MIDDLE, or just LASTNAME.
