At one time, those who used credit and debit cards were generally using one of three types: ATM cards, company cards for business expenses, and retail store cards. Over the years, however, the role of the card has evolved to take over mainstream spending, making the once-ubiquitous paper check all but extinct in the retail world.

With so many now using their cards on a daily basis, it’s hardly surprising that users want to customize their cards. Who wants to look at a boring, basic design all day? Discover cardholders can choose from more than 40 credit card designs to personalize their plastic. Covering the gamut from simple to sporty, Discover card designs offer something for just about everyone.

1. Official Card of the NHL

Take your hockey fandom to the next level by getting an NHL-inspired design on your Discover it® card — which just so happens to be the official credit card of the National Hockey League. Choose from all 30 NHL teams — from the Avalanche to the Wild, and everyone in between. Each design features the team logo on a stylized background.

2. Go Retro with a Mix Tape

Depending on your age, you may not even recognize this next design: an audio cassette. Once upon a time, they were used to create compilations of our favorite radio songs, called mix tapes. Not only is this design delightfully (or sadly?) retro, the tape appears to be ready to play — no rewinding required!

3. Show Off Your Pride

Featuring all the colors of the rainbow, this card design is made up of stylized metallic dots that fade into white. Whether you want to show off your pride or simply love the vibrant colors, this rainbow-inspired design is sure to brighten up a cloudy day.

4. Every Day’s a Beach Holiday

While few of us can spend our days luxuriating on a sandy beach, we can keep the dream alive with this tropical card design. Picture yourself in paradise every time you look at the bright blue skies, sparkling blue waters, and happy little palm trees.

5. Have Fun with Textured Solids

If some of the busier designs aren’t your style but you still want a personal touch, Discover also has a series of solid-colored offerings, made visually interesting with a brushed-nickel textured finish. The designs come in a dynamic range of colors inspired by nature, including charcoal, copper, gold, garnet, quartz, ocean, spruce, raspberry, and plum.

Current Top-Rated Discover Credit Card Offers

Beyond the wide range of fun and funky designs, Discover it® credit cards come with a lot of perks — such as top-rated customer service and no annual fee.

Changing Your Design & Getting a Replacement Card

Few of us likely miss using paper checks every day, but some may yearn for the customizable aesthetics of their old checkbook.

Here, you can choose to order an additional card or replace your current one, then the design selections are presented.
