Mobile SIM branding

Our mobile voice and data SIMs provide a very flexible solution which can easily be used in a corporate network or by a wholesale provider to create their own mobile service. Our data SIM cards allow L2TP back-haul to your own network. Our voice SIM allow connection to SIP voice servers, and texting back-end systems.

Whether you are buying one SIM for your own mobile use, or hundreds of SIMs to start a mobile service, we can offer a number of branding options.

Custom artwork

Voice SIMVoice SIM back
When ordering a SIM you have the option to select from a gallery of artwork, or upload your own.

We recommend you make an image 1024 x 648 pixels when uploading your own artwork at 300dpi. The print area is approximately 1012 x 637 pixels. You should not leave gaps for the SIM cut-out or contacts, but bear these in mind as part of your design. The card also has some text and barcode information that is pre-printed. Whilst you can upload a jpg image, we recommend a lossless format such as png or bmp.

Whilst the SIM will still have the A&A logo, the artwork can be your choice - making it ideal as a gift, or just for fun.

Previously uploaded artwork

If you have chosen to upload artwork and order a SIM, then next time you order you can pick upload artwork, and the select your old artwork link. This will ask for your account and password and then offer a choice of artwork including your previously uploaded and used images.

Removing A&A logo

Staff can remove the A&A logo before printing. If you are in contact with staff you can request this - but you do need to ensure this is done before the print. We suggest you place your order whilst on the phone or irc to a member of the sales team that can then pick up your SIM order and ensure the logo is removed.

This is obviously not the best process if you need to order SIMs with no logo, but can be used for a one-off. If you need lots of SIMs without the A&A logo then we can set up branding - see below.

Custom front and back artwork

We can arrange branding for customers wanting to order SIM cards regularly. This is ideal for corporate SIM cards to staff, where additional information can be included on the back of the SIM, and the front can bear company logo / branding.

We will provide a link to place orders for SIMs which offers a range of SIM artwork, and you still have the option to upload new SIM front artwork and select previously uploaded artwork.

For the rear of the SIM you will need to provide artwork. The rear is normally printed black only, and we usually print the nano-SIM outline and SIM type regardless, but you can request that we omit this and just print your chosen rear artwork.

Custom brand overlay

An alternative which is ideal for branding your own mobile service is that we set up brand overlay - just like the A&A logo which is overlaid on any chosen image. This then allows you to order with any of the standard SIM front artwork or upload artwork as you wish but with your brand overlaid on to the image automatically. You can also provide suitable artwork for the back of the SIMs, which can be different for each type of SIM (typically instructions for use).

Preset operator name and connection details

When ordering voice SIMs you have the option to pick an operator name that is coded in to the SIM. This is shown on the screen of many phones. iPhones do not show this on the main screen, but do show it in a menu. If we have set up a SIM brand for you, we can pre-set the operator name on the order form to avoid accidentally ordering with the wrong operator name in the SIM.

We can also pre-set the hostname for SIP for voice SIMs and for L2TP data on data SIMs as well, saving have to configure each SIM individually.
