Tim Hortons Tim Carding 101





Tim Card Collecting 101
Gift Card Collecting, similar to Sport Card, Stamp or Coin Collecting Started with Phone cards and has progessed into Gift Card Collecting and is for sheer enjoyment and entertainment purposes to collect and catalog the Tim Cards and Collectible Companion Merchandise Released by Tim Hortons

Tim Cards
What are they?
Tim Cards are Tim Hortons name for their company branding gift cards






Definition of Terms
Collectibles: an item valued and sought by collectors. 

Limited Edition: limited to a specific number of copies of the gift card Released 

Special Edition: an edition of a Gift Card that differs from the usual format, especially in concentrating on one particularly important Promotion 

Exclusive Edition:  Limited to Area Concerned

Commemorative: The gift card commemorates a specific event 

Seasonal: A gift card that is released at specific times of the calendar year ie. Spring Summer Fall winter Christmas 

Annual: Carefully selected subjects pertinent to company programs and directives Ie. Timbits hockey, timbits soccer, Childrens foundation 

Annual Editions: Updated on a regular ongoing basis during and through a continuous amount of time 

Sports Team Cards Sponsorship Cards: To show partnership and sponsorship support for a specific team with a co-branding leading to a specific fan/customer base while co-branding and advertising 

Hanger or “Break Away” Cards: Card hangers conveniently hang on display near a cash or check out area and are used widely in Grocery and Drug stores simplifying merchandising and providing added promotional sales for the supplier Just like a regular stand-alone in-store cards, the card portion of the hanger is scored to easily detach or snap the card from and can include a bar code or magnetic stripe Hanger cards come in different forms including Plastic Snap hangers, paper backed hangers, snap key chain cards and schedules 

Fast Cards Starting 2016 Tim Hortons officially changed the name of Hanger Cards to Fast Cards in direct planning to their Omni Channel Marketing for online tim cards

Error Cards: Typeset Flaws, inadvertently made by manufacturer during the production run process often limited cards released as it is corrected when found 

Tim Card Variations: A gift Card variation is a different or distinct form or version of something. of the same kind. In Tim Hortons Tim Cards this can be found in gift card colours, Series numbers and Pin Boxes utilised within the same VL/FD code of the same card 

Pin Box Variants -Pin Box Variants Like Series Numbers are a way to identify different types of pin boxes utilising runs of the same card within a specific VL/FD Number and Series run

True Sets Often the same Pin box can be found for each card type (Canadian English, Canadian French, USA) to create True Collectors Sets 

Colour Variations made during the production run during the manufacturer’s production run process where set colour guidelines are used within a specific of what is considered the norm 

Series Numbers: The first four digits of the Tim Card Code 

Series Runs: Any cards numbered beyond the first four digits of the Series numbers on the Tim cards utilised to locate a specific card ie. Pin Box, Type, errors or colour variants within card runs 

Identifying Series and Series Runs on Specific Cards is a standard practise in the gift card collecting hobby By Using this practice Tim cards and can be utilised in several ways 
1) Filling in questionable gaps in the VL/FD list 
2) Verifying and ensuring we have not missed a card released during the year 
3) Expanding an existing collection by series variants 
4) Identifying Specific Cards in a specific Series Run Release 

Filling in Questionable Gaps in the VL/FD List Generally in the early years from 2007 to 2015 Tim Hortons would release a Canadian English, a Canadian French and USA version of the same card 
Each card would have a specific VL/FD number attached to it to identify these particular specifications specifically 
Often there were holes in the VL/FD list that left collectors wondering -have we missed a card? 

Verifying and Ensuring we have not missed a card released during the year To verify with no uncertainty we have missed a card released to be collected and to fill in gaps on the VL/FD list we also follow the tim card numbers by the first four digits and call them Series Numbers 
So each time the first four digits on the tim card number on the top of the card increases a digit it is deemed a new series variant of the same card with the same VL/FD number for tracking purposes - in essence filling in the gaps to verify that indeed we did not miss a card released! 

Expanding an Existing Collection by Series Variants Collectors often collect the different Series Numbers on the Same Cards Released in their Collections as Place marks to follow the VL/FD list and in doing so they expand their collections past the original VL/FD number of one specific type of card creating sub-collections with the variant Series Numbers 
This has been utilised very highly in the White Cup - Brown Cup Categories of different Annual Store "Flag" or "Core" Cards re-released over and over every year   So in essence by collecting the same cards by series numbers with the same VL/FD numbers you can collect all the Series Numbered cards in this category increasing the amount of cards in your collection while filling in questionable gaps of actual cards released by VL/FD Number 

Identifying Specific Cards in a Specific Series Run Release Identifying Specific Cards in a Specific Series Run Release is a very efficient and effective way to locate and find with uncertainty a specific type or variation of card by identifying the First 6 Digits of the Tim Card Series Run Number 
By tracking a card by the first 6 digits of the tim card number you can locate specific variant pin boxes, error cards or even specific runs of cards to locate a specific colour of tim cards released

Gift Card Companion Items
Collecting Gift Cards is much like collecting anything. When you specialise in one company’s gift cards You'll find many easy to find common gift cards or items that everyone seems to have and then there are those really rare obscure hard to find cards and items that everyone is after and searching for that actually add interest or have some form of significance or add value to overall collections when combined These unusual hard-to-find gift cards and accompanying items like matching Envelope Covers, Cup Sleeves  and Cups that all match for a specific release create sub sets or mini collections within an existing overall collection

Companion Collectibles are Recognised as an Individual Set
If there is an item that matches or co-ordinates with a gift card and can be combined into a set this creates a sub collectible category within your existing .collection.  So If you just collect gift cards it should be noted if a matching or accompanying envelope, cup sleeve or cup matches the gift card.  Attaining the matching gift card cover or other matching items "may" add value or significance to your overall collection as they are recognised as an individual set to collectors   Taken out of an existing Collection they stand alone and are recognised as an existing set or mini collection upon themselves

Other Notable Companion and Co-Related Collectibles Recognised and Sought After by Tim Card and Tims Collectors!
Often as a supplemental to a collection small Companion Tims items or Co-related non Tims items will be added if they are relevant to a collector and the collection as a whole Often overlapping and combining into different collectible categories
Very Often Companion Items help explain or define WHY WHEN or WHERE and For WHAT Purpose a SPECIFIC Gift Card was Released and allows you to get the basic/necessary information to provide the complete story for its purpose
