C3 Entertainment, Inc. announced that CARD.com is coming to market with a Monica Warhol prepaid Visa debit card. C3 represents the renowned artist for licensing and merchandising.
Ani Khachoian, C3’s Executive Vice President of Licensing & Consumer Products said ‘When we did the license deal with CARD.com last year, we included The Three Stooges® brand, which C3 owns, Monica Warhol and the Grizzly Adams® brand that we also represent for licensing and merchandising.
Continuing she said ‘The new Monica Warhol debit cards will come to market in August with several designs available featuring Monica’s unique art. CARD.com is already at market with The Three Stooges® cards and we are working on getting the Grizzly Adams® brand cards to market.’
Ben Katz, CEO and Co-founder of CARD.com says, ‘This gives fans of Monica and her art an entirely new way to show their own artistic expression every time they use their card. Our aim is to bring consumers an easy-to-use and affordable banking experience that reflects people’s passions.’
The Monica Warhol prepaid card can be used everywhere Visa is accepted, is fully FDIC insured and offers fully-featured online banking services like bill pay, cash transfers and transaction history — just like traditional branch banking.
The growing trend in prepaid cards is increasingly embraced by leading financial institutions like Chase and American Express, and even retailers like WalMart, 7-Eleven and Walgreens.
According to the New York Times article from May 23, 2012, ‘In 2009, borrowers had roughly $29 billion worth of prepaid cards, according to the Mercator Advisory Group, which provides research for the payments industry. By 2013, the volume of money on prepaid cards is expected to swell to $90 billion.’
As with all the leading prepaid cards, the Monica Warhol brand prepaid card has a $5.95 per month fee, but no overdraft or late fees, 100% FDIC insurance and fraud liability and even a fully-featured online-banking experience.
