General Credit Forms in St Louis had it and the patterns and my friend
Al Weber had cards made when he worked there. The problem with making
more was the feasibility of setting their lines up to run the card, and
at the time the paper was no problem (into the 90's).
I'll check with him and see if he knows of any problem getting the paper.
GCF makes the NCR snap forms for credit cards, and owns the patents to
that technology. So making the cards were not a problem for them as
their line was nearly set up exactly for that already.
