Blue Star DIRECT's card printing solution, Touch, is built for high-speed and quality!

Blue Star DIRECT’s Touch solution is your one-stop-shop when it comes to the making and distribution of loyalty, membership, access control, employee ID and financial cards.

Whether you have simplex, duplex or even bespoke card specifications, our technology is built for high speed monochrome or full-colour printing and near edge-to-edge printing of text, photos, logos, alphanumeric text or barcodes.

Our technology have magnetic strip encoding capabilities which are verified throughout the manufacturing process, in addition to two thermal printing stations that allows us to maintain proven performance together with consistent reliability of card printing on a grand scale.

We also have the professional extended machinery to accommodate bespoke card specifications. For example ‘tear-off’ secondary card tags for family members (or your key ring!).

Along with dedicated staff, Blue Star DIRECT also have intelligent plastic wrap and insertion technologies that will ensure your cards are correctly coded and matched with any accompanying material such as letters, inserts, catalogues or vouchers. This process is typically driven by the reading of a unique barcode to match with the physical card, ensuring high precision. Mechanically, we are able to match, attach, verify and insert cards by the thousands.

As Australia’s most diverse communications supplier we can also arrange base stock manufacturing via our sister groups within the IVE Group, making the entire process from start to finish, seamless, including having Australia Post outstation units onsite for flexible and prompt lodgements.

Major Australian Energy Company - Fulfilment Manager

During a high profile crisis response project involving a global brand, the logistical challenges of communicating with customers became apparent during a fast-paced, uncertain environment and legally sensitive corporate crisis. We engaged Blue Star DIRECT to assist in a rapid response campaign that involved printing, collating and sending high-quality communications and fragile packages to customers. Their professionalism in managing this difficult project was second-to-none.

Crisis Management organisation - Project Manager

We have worked with Blue Star DIRECT for many years across a wide range of mailings; from stylised campaign DMs to BAU communications. What really makes them stand out is the level of service they provide and their advanced knowledge of data. The people genuinely care about their clients and the quality of work, and they’re always responsive and highly professional. Our data is complex; requiring sophisticated programming and Blue Star DIRECT have been consistent in providing clear and accurate DM communications for our donors/customers.

Charity organisation

I have always found Blue Star DIRECT staff helpful and very efficient. Having several thousand files on site with Blue Star DIRECT means that in emergency situations it necessitates a request for file to be scanned urgently. They respond quickly and regularly exceed my expectations. Similarly whenever we query any scanned documents they are very responsive to investigate and provide us answers and or solutions. I can recommend their services and would be more than happy to talk to any prospective clients.
