Do you have select businesses already committed?

How many offers will be included on the Value Card?

Our cards offer a minimum of 8 offers and a maximum of 24. Our recommendation is 12 offers, simply because the more offers printed on the card, the smaller the images and can be hard to read for some of your customers.
