Subway Metal Card

Intech Direct was proud to partner with Subway Restaurants to produce their black card. This card, which is given to Subway’s spokespeople and other VIPs, was created using Intech’s advanced Metal card manufacturing process.

With only a minor additional cost, your card can separate itself from the clutter and drive sales. Don't just take our word on it.
