Information & Services

Custom Card Information

To customize your card login to Personal Branch online banking and click on Customize Your Debit/Credit Card in the Related Tasks and Links box.

 

Eligibility:

Members of Utah Community Credit Union in good standing with an existing Visa debit or Visa credit card are eligible. Access to UCCU's Personal Branch online banking service is required.

Customized Image’s are Unique to Card numbers:

Only one custom image per card number allowed. For example, multiple debit cards issued on the same account are always issued with unique card numbers so each individual debit card can be designed with a unique image.  However, credit cards issued on the same account, are always issued with the same card number so when any one cardholder customizes their card, all cards with that number will share the customized image.

Image Approval:

All custom images will be reviewed for compliance with image guidelines. Each image also must meet Visa® Issuing Guidelines* outlined below.

Rejected Images:

Utah Community Credit Union reserves the right to reject any image it believes violates the image guidelines. If an image is rejected, notification will be given within five business days. A new image can be submitted anytime following the rejection notice.

Fees:

Each Custom Card issued is $5.95 unless otherwise stated.  Please note that upon expiration, a new card will be sent (reissued) with the same image as your most recent card and your account will be charged $5.95.

Card Reissue/Renewal:

Upon expiration a new card will be sent with the same image as your most recent card.

Lost/Stolen Card:

If your card is lost or stolen, please call UCCU immediately to replace your card. Your newly issued card will have the same image as your previous card.
