[Koha] limit display length of last name? (holdslip)

Our library branch places hold items (to be picked up) in a public area
for patrons to grab and check out for themselves. For privacy reasons,
we'd like to limit the info displayed on the hold slips/receipts. Is
there a way to limit the length (e.g. first 2 letters) of the "surname"
displayed on these receipts AND is there a way to limit the display of
units of the "cardnumber" (e.g. the LAST 4 numbers). I'm hoping it's a
matter of simple HTML code for displaying pieces (or limited lengths) of
database info that I've never needed to know about until now.
Many thanks to whomever can provide a solution and/or other alternatives
for "privatizing" the hold slips. We're currently typing this code
(first 2 of last name and last 4 of card number) into a template that we
print via Publisher. It'd be great if we could write/code it into Koha
to do for us.

I believe this is what we'd like to change (where it says surname and
