Stephen Prince is the Vice-Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires and a businessman who founded National Business Products, now known as Card Marketing Services, in 1993. In the early years of his company, Mr. Prince focused attention on finding innovative print solutions for the credit, debit, and prepaid segment of the payments industry. As the gift card phenomenon began to evolve in the late ‘90’s, he switched the company focus from one that provided heavy paper print offerings to one whose primary product line was printed plastic cards and support materials for that market segment. Today, as gift and loyalty card programs have proliferated and grown, Mr. Prince is invited to deliver his “gift card gospel” to sales staffs, merchant clients as well as potential platform partners all over the U.S. Of late, he has become more and more involved in startups, primarily in the payments industry, where and when his technology experience enhances an opportunity. Mentoring young entrepreneurs is something he not only enjoys but is something he feels is his responsibility.
