The ECS Card Explained
What does the ECS card display? Take a look at our breakdown of what the card shows. The ECS card printing system has recently been updated, which means cards printed now and in the future have a slightly different look to those cards issued before the change in system.
ECS cards issued from the new system display a full colour ECS logo on the front and a barcode on the back. The back of all new cards are white, regardless of the colour on the front of the card. The new cards are also laminated for better durability.
