PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This week Dynamics introduced a whole new experience for fans of diverse artists by enabling them to earn exclusive collections of their work. The collections feature photorealism, mixed media, golf, fantasy, gothic and allegorical acrylic art. Each artist has created new works exclusively for Dynamics ePlate® cardholders, and has taken what a credit card looks like to a whole new level – with each artist’s ePlate® card capturing their artistic signature. The cards are uniquely designed by each artist with their artwork on the front of the card – and in an industry first – they have also designed the magnetic stripe in their style, a stark contrast to the dark stripe we have all grown accustomed to on the back of credit cards. Collectors of these artists and other upcoming artists can now earn artwork with their everyday purchases.
“We are empowering a new generation of artists who could have never entered the world of credit cards with their designs,” said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics Inc. “Dynamics new artist experience solves the artist’s dilemma, so that artists can continue to expand their creative horizons while giving consumers a new way to obtain their work.”
Consumers can choose from two different themed designs per artist, from Doug Bloodworth, Dan Monteavaro, Jasmine Becket-Griffith and Conni Togel, each with exclusive designed magnetic stripes.
“One of the biggest challenges an artist faces is getting his work in front of the public. These days, artists pay large amounts to get their works on gallery’s walls. The great thing about being part of ePlate® is that most everyone uses credit cards. This enables me to get my works out to millions of people who otherwise would never see it or become exposed to it,” said Doug Bloodworth, a leading photorealism artist.
“My goal is for people to get as much out of the art as I do, and to hopefully introduce people to collecting artwork without it seeming to be an inapproachable or intimidating passion,” said Dan Monteavaro.
The Dynamics ePlate® Visa® card offers users over 50 rewards that they can choose from, before every swipe, by pushing one of two buttons on the front of the card. Users assign rewards to the two buttons on the card using their phone, tablet or PC, and then push the button for the reward they want. Then the card lights up to indicate which reward was selected and activates the industry’s only rewritable magnetic stripe.
When selected, the Doug Bloodworth Experience™ rewards allow consumers to earn an exclusive signed print valued at $950 for every $2,600 the consumer spends anywhere they use their Dynamics ePlate® Visa card, a 36.5% reward compared to typical 1% reward cards. For the Dan Monteavaro Experience™, for every $5,000 the consumer spends (a 7% reward), they earn a signed and numbered art print, available only to ePlate® cardholders. Terms and conditions apply.
The Dynamics ePlate® Visa® card and Doug Bloodworth, Dan Monteavaro, Jasmine Becket-Griffith and Conni Togel ePlate® Visa® cards are issued by UMB Bank and operate on the Visa® network. Credit approval required. Customers may apply for the Dynamics artists’ cards by visiting:
