Our Story

Established in 1995, Swype has grown from a local success story into an international business supplying thousands of customers each year.

Originally trading as Company Cards Limited, the business was founded on a belief that quality and customer care go hand in hand. Fast-forward to today, we’re now a respected leader within the access, security, payment and identification industries. 

Rapid production upon approval, full customisation plus first-class fulfilment – that’s the Swype way.

Why Work With Swype?

Client Delight – “the customer is always right”. It’s a quote that everyone is familiar with. We take that philosophy one step further – always offer people more. We’ve continued to develop our product ranges based on feedback, with clients returning year after year.

Customisation – bespoke design and custom cutting mean that we can offer a limitless variety of card styles to choose from. If you can think of it, our print and design teams can probably make it!

Communication – we’re a people-based business and our dedicated account handlers on hand to make your order smooth and seamless. As we like to go one step further, we also offer marketing and fulfilment services, including direct mail, design, and bureau services.

Global Expertise With A Local Touch 

We have over 100 years of combined experience in the print and production industry, with clients in the UK, Europe and even further afield. From our production plant in the North West of England, we’re incredibly proud to employ local people who have grown with the business, with a few long service awards already handed out!

As a business, we have invested considerably in both our state-of-the-art, in-house manufacturing equipment and the ongoing training and development of the team. We have full flexibility and control to deliver your order on time, every time AND we can quickly advise you on the best options. And with rigorous quality checks at every stage of production, the final products you receive are always of premium quality – guaranteed.
