In an age when everything is customized or personalized -- it seems natural that your credit cards have a certain flare as well.
A new trend involving Credit Covers is sweeping across the country and it was started right here in Madison.
Credit cards or bank cards are something most of us use at least once a day.
What better way to show your style than pull out -- a credit card with a Credit Cover.
They are skins or stickers that are applied right over your credit card adding a little flare.
CEO and Founder Anthony David Adams.
"I was really tired of these boring bank cards...the trend of customization."
Even Lance Bass was caught sporting his in Los Angeles last year.
They are designed by independent artists -- including Matthew Langile who designs for Marc Jacobs. Most of the designs, as you can see, are cutting edge art.
But this trend goes beyond vanity...
"Now marketers and people who are working on branding, even political campaigns make a purchase."
So you can show your pride or your love of hunting right on your credit card. And you will be supporting a Madison business. I have used mine and people always seem to comment on it when I use it.
They work in ATM's or in machines in a store or restaurant. To check out the selection or get information on how to personalize them for your business got to credit covers dot com.
