A blank space is provided on the back of each card to allow you to write relevant information including your business name and the card value.

You can choose between three designs; floral, brushstroke or kaleidoscope. These Starter Pack gift cards come with free standard shipping within 2-7 business days or paid expedited shipping within 1-4 business days.

Note: You cannot customise the gift card Starter Pack with your business name, logo or other personalisation. For customisation, choose Quick or Custom Cards below.

Note: If you are using a third-party eCommerce integration partner and you’re selling physical Square gift cards, please check with the integration partner before ordering to ensure they are redeemable. Although Square is the payment processor, the partner may not always support external gift card redemption from Square.
