About the Expressions on Naira MasterCard
That freedom to capture your individuality, design images or use pictures of your child’s first steps, your wedding day or that moment you cherish on your debit Naira MasterCard Card is what First Bank of Nigeria Ltd. is offering customers through “Expressions On Cards”.

With ‘Expressions’, the Bank’s customers assume control of the look and design of their Naira MasterCard by exercising the freedom to print images of their loved ones and favorite moments of their lives on their cards.

The process for requesting for the product/designing the card is initiated on the Bank’s website where the customer is at liberty to select a picture (from an existing bank-managed gallery or from a personal collection), which would serve as the artwork on the front of his/her card. Following submission of the selected design, the personalized card would be delivered in 72 hours for Lagos locations and 5 business days for upcountry locations.

      They are not copying anybody. Many banks outside the country do it. The idea isn’t owned by Barclays. Can’t Nigerians do something without being accused of copying.

      Isn’t it copying? just because lots of people have copied doesn’t make it any less so. When they start coming up with ideas that no one else has done, we’ll stop saying they copied.
      Well done to them for introducing it to Nigeria though.
