    - Delivers User-Friendly Online Tool for Full Card Customization With a Personal Photograph

    Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), a world leader in digital security, today introduces an innovative end-to-end solution for secure Internet design of personalized EMV payment cards. Gemalto's CardLikeMe(TM) provides users with an intuitive interface to upload a picture of their choice on the bank website to create a unique personal card. As part of the offering, Gemalto provides banks with the software solution required for processing the photograph on their website and ensures complete card personalization and fulfillment. CardLikeMe has already gone live with several European financial institutions. It will be demonstrated at Cartes this week.

    Gemalto's CardLikeMe makes it extremely simple for bank customers to  design a unique payment card with a personal illustration. Once the picture  is loaded on the bank website, users can visualize the card appearance in  real time and adjust the photograph as they wish. The image is approved by  the bank before the order is placed. Users may also choose a picture from a  wide range of attractive background visuals offered on the bank's online  gallery.

The offering encompasses management of the entire solution, from software integration into the bank website through to card delivery to the end-user.
