Bob, I'm not sure how wise or experienced I am (!), but with the
organizations from which I've gotten membership cards, they're designed to
be a way to let a member save his/her membership number to get discounts on
purchases, be discount passes to events or facilities like museums, or
something similar. I really think you can make something yourself that
would be a lot more impressive than a wallet card. Even make your own
wallet card :-)
