Help with customising your order

Our staff do not have access to customise your card

This is so that no mistakes or typos can be made accidentally by us (spell-checkers have a habit of changing words) and it ensures that you receive your order printed exactly as you intended.

Unfortunately this means that our staff cannot input your details if you send it by email/attachment or in a message etc. Though, our staff can crop your uploaded photos if it's required it to fit the card.

Below is some general help on customising some of the fields that may appear on some of our cards;

PLEASE NOTE: Not all cards have the same fields, you may find that some of the items below are not applicable.

Sub-Categories


Sub-Categories are A1, A2, A3. If you have just passed your basic online theory test with the CAA this will entitle you to A1 and A3 sub-categories (but not A2). If this is the case enter 'A1/A3' which is the default sub-categories after completing the initial CAA online training/registration.

If you have studied with a flight-school and completed a further test(s) then this will entitle the pilot to sub-category A2. Enter 'A2' or 'A1-3'

There isn't much space on the card to customise this, so please avoid more than 4 characters.

RAE


RAE is a Recognised Assessment Entity. It is authorised by the CAA to deliver A2 Certificate of Competence drone courses (so you can operate in the A2 subcategory of the open category) and also in the specific category if you complete a GVC drone course.

You will find the RAE number on your certificate, usually under their logo.

Please note; we will not print their RAE logo on your card.


Why do I have to send a copy of my registration certificate?


The QR code on each of the cards allows the person scanning it to download a copy of your original CAA/EASA documentation, the actual proof of your registration to any official that may require it. Our cards alone may not be accepted as proof as it is not issued by the CAA or EASA.

Can I have a card if I have not registered with the CAA or EASA?


No. We only issue cards to registered users and reserve the right to cancel orders if it apparent if the card recipient is not registered.
We do not print the cards as toys, special effects, props or for laughs (as some of the requests we have had).

Why is there a delay for a response when I order from eBay or Amazon?


Amazon takes a while to process your order before notifying sellers, sometimes up to 24 hours (mostly 2 to 3 hours), eBay is fairly instant at notifying sellers that there is a new order, however; as this is the only part of the process that is not automated, we have to manually take the information from the sellers accounts (both Amazon/eBay) and type it into our printing system. This can take a little while to do and usually happens during the day.
Please bear with us. We would love to automate this and make it instant (just like ordering from our website)!

How often do you print the cards?


Every day during the week. The main print run is between 1pm and 2pm, if you have customised your card/order prior to midday, it should be printed and dispatched the same day.
