Each starter pack contains 20 cards with four unique designs packaged in a cardholder that can be used to display your gift cards on your counter. 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 delivery within 2–7 working days or paid expedited delivery within 1–4 working 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.
