Custom credit card options in Australia

There are currently no credit cards that offer personalisation in Australia right now, but you can still customise them with personalised stickers and sleeves.

In the past, ANZ and Bendigo Bank were two of the banks that offered custom design features for eligible credit cards.

While these options are no longer available, you can still personalise your credit card with stickers and covers. In fact, there are many online stores that offer a mix of designs and customisations you can add to any credit card.

Other ways to get a custom credit card design

Credit card covers and stickers are the easiest way to create a custom credit card design. In most cases, you can just place the sticker on the front of your credit card and keep paying with it as usual.

Plenty of designs leave space for the embedded microchip and the card numbers that are usually printed on the front of the card, and you'll be able to peel the cover off if you decide you don't want it any more.

So, here's a look at some of the companies and websites that offer these credit card covers, stickers and sleeves.

CUCU covers

CUCU makes removable covers for credit cards, debit cards, gift cards and even transport passes. It offers thousands of designs in categories including animals, anime, gaming and motivation – plus official partnerships with brands including Hello Kitty and the NBA.

You can also design your own and have a choice between a full cover or a half cover for the front of your card. CUCU is based in Toronto, Canada, and prices are typically under AUD$10 for a full cover (although this may vary with exchange rate changes).

Etsy

Online marketplace Etsy has credit card covers, decals and stickers from sellers in Australia, as well as overseas – including CUCU covers. You can set filters for price, location, delivery speeds and more. Plenty of sellers also offer personalisation such as choosing colours, words, fonts or different prints.

Prices typically range from $1 to $10 or more depending on the seller and the type of sticker or cover you choose. Remember to check shipping costs as well.

eBay

There is a range of eBay sellers that offer covers, decals and stickers you can use to customise your credit card. As eBay has a huge mix of sellers, your search results could also include credit card holders and wallets.

You can use filters or try different search terms to help narrow down the results. You can also contact a seller to ask a question or find out if they have more ways to customise your credit card design.

When you're looking at ways to design your own credit card, just remember that you should always be able to see (or easily access) the following features on your card for security and identity reasons:

  • The embedded microchip and the magnetic stripe
  • The name on the card
  • The card number and expiry date
  • The CVC/CVV
  • Your signature

Most companies that offer custom credit card stickers or other options use the universal measurements for cards. You can also trim designs to make sure all the key details are visible.

Another option is to go digital by adding your credit card details to Google Pay, Samsung Pay or another digital wallet. It's not exactly a visual type of customisation, but it does mean you won't have to even think about the physical design of your credit card (if that's what you want).
