Every cardholder has unique tastes, and at CUCU Covers, we understand that. Whether you're looking to customize your debit card or give your credit card a personal touch, knowing the size of your card's chip is essential. Let's dive into how you can easily determine this.

The Importance of Chip Size When Customizing Your Card

Before you opt for that anime card skin or hilarious meme, card stickers, it's vital to determine your card's chip size. This ensures that your stick-on covers fit perfectly, allowing you to swipe, tap, or insert without any hassles.

Identifying Large Chip vs. Small Chip

There are primarily two sizes of chips found on most cards: large and small. Here's how you can differentiate between them:

Large Chip

The large chip, as its name suggests, occupies a more significant portion of the card's front. It's easily recognizable due to its size when comparing the two. It is more square/evenly shaped. When there are numbers on the front of the card it is usually right up against the top of the numbers. See some examples below:

Small Chip

On the other hand, the small chip is more compact and rectangle shaped, with it looking slightly wider than it is tall. When there are numbers are on the front of the card there is a slight gap between the two. Many popular cards such as Cash App Card, Chime Card, and other major banks use it. Many banks use both Large Chip and Small Chip so its important to pay attention to this guide to know the right one. See some examples below of Small Chip:
