BT Tourism Tender Cards

In 1993, three years before British Telecom (BT) introduced the new chip based telephone card, BT contacted various telephone card manufacturers to tender for the contract to supply and produce The New BT Phonecard (pictured right). Nine companies responded and produced samples for the tender adjudication process. This webpage features the sample cards produced by GPT without full face printing (Example G cards). In addition GPT also submitted a full set of six cards with full face printing please see Example F cards.

In addition to the Example F GPT cards, GPT also submitted a full set of six cards of non full-face printing.

The reverse of the wrapper was printed with a dove grey background with "£10" printed in a darker grey; barcode 5 016351700020; and instructions for use in black print. This wrapper was identical to that used on the £10 full face printed cards. Quantities of each card in the set varied between 20 and 50 of each.
