Not a scam. But, you are correct; anyone can do this themselves; without a company of any kind. If you have the knowledge and experience to do this yourself; please feel free to not participate. However, IF you need this service please feel free to contact me to discuss your needs at any time.
Not a scam is what all the scammers say
In that case it doesn't matter. Thought the back had the private key.
That is correct, this is just the public key.
We do offer the card with a private key however we require the key be passphrase encrypted. Even then, we still want to make sure customers understand the risk involved in doing this. Here's the link for more info.
Hey man, just want you to know that this is exactly what I needed for christmas gifts! Wish you'd posted this two weeks ago (idk what your turnaround is?) also could you do other coins? Maybe vertcoin? If so I'll place some orders today!q
Sure we can engrave whatever you send! The best place to get more info is at our website. You can upload your public key and any background photo you want!
You still had to send the key in to get it printed. It has been written somewhere and transferred over the internet.
I'm printing them
Yes, you are printing keys that your customers send you. By "you" in my previous comment I wasn't referring to you, but to your customers really.
So the key is already in the wild, no sense in covering it afterwards.
Yeah technically this is true, there's no need to cover a passphrase encrypted key. But it's just an extra layer of security to prevent tampering.
