FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS DIGI-CARDS ARE AGAIN THE INDUSTRY FAVORITES
Digi-cards download cards were the first option for multimedia custom download cards almost 10 years ago. During this time, many have tried to enter the market with several options now being available, however only a few have survived. As seen during the SXSW conference, without a doubt, the best option and product is still Digi-cards. When he was asked about this at a presentation, Jerry Harp (International Sales Manager), said, “It is simple, we offer the best product and value for the investment and the ROI for our clients is the best in the industry”. “We are not the cheapest and we do not want to be; we market to professionals and independent artists that care about their image. For example, would you like to sell or promote your product on a paper or laminated card? What does that say about your content or product? Our cards have many advantages over others that are similar in price, but none of the others offer cards with an appearance as sturdy and sleek as credit cards coupled with fully customized sites for PCs and Mobile devices, up to 2.5GB of content space, a Content Delivery Network, free professional design, and all in a simple package with free shipping worldwide. Who else offers that?” he concluded. Many movie producers and independent musicians that attend SXSW were distributing their product through Digi-cards and the ones that didn´t got embarrassed.

CD SALES DROP – DIGITAL DOWNLOADS STEADY, WHAT ABOUT DOWNLOAD CARDS?
MIAMI, FL. OCTOBER.20.15
INTERESTING NEWS REPORT ON MAINSTREAM MEDIA (EXCERPT)
According to figures in the United States, the first half of 2015 has seen a drop of 31% in CD sales compared to last year. We are all aware that the CD is now a thing of the past and most likely will slowly disappear in the next couple of years, even with the resurgence of vinyl music sales. Much all physical music distribution is over, or is it? We contacted the largest producer and manufacturer of music download cards to ask about any figures they could provide as no agency seems to follow, and RIAA, Soundscan and other tracking organizations count them as digital downloads, but should they?
Digi-cards download cards seems to be one of the largest if not the largest producers and even though they sell plenty of product in the US, it seems the company base is somewhere in Europe. After many calls, emails and runarounds we finally contacted Gerardo Alton-Ortega, a Mexico-born entrepreneur who is CEO of Vital Digital Global Corporation, the parent company of Digi-cards.
We asked the question: What about music download cards? His answer was straight-forward: they have replaced the CD and DVD sales and are probably the last form of physical multimedia distribution. He said that even though his company from the very beginning was focused on the music market, it has grown into marketing, advertising, merchandising and a long list of industries and applications where music now stands at only 14% of their total yearly business. However, he mentioned that his music download cards sales have been increasing tenfold in the last 2 to 3 years. When asked why aren´t they reported as physical sales, he answered: “because they are counted as digital downloads. The industry was not prepared for a product that combines both methods of distribution, physical and virtual so instead of adjusting, they decided to go the easy route and count them as digital downloads, something they were already set up to handle”, he concluded.
Digital download cards seem to have fallen through the cracks of reporting and it might be a music black hole that might have been an important measure of physical music sales. We have seen a huge increase of artists selling download cards, from very high quality product like Digi-cards made of plastic that resemble a credit card to laminated paper and homemade cards that for a price try to lure the end user to download music, videos and other multimedia files.
Looking at these figures and the comments of a leading manufacturer of this product, we can safely say that physical sales of music albums will be around for many years to come no matter what you call them, physical album sales or digital downloads.

"Many of our customers have contracts with us and need our product, however the instability of the country's economy has made its currency lose value against the Dollar at a faster rate than all Latin America" he also added "Many people depend on our product and I rather cut profits than allow them to miss the opportunity that many of our products give them in marketing, e-file physical distribution and other industries" he concluded.
