This summer seems to have flown by and it’s that time of year again – when parents and students are preparing to head back to school. And you know what that means! New ID badges for students and staff. 

New ID badges usually mean new lanyardsbadge clips or holders for students and staff to use for displaying their ID badges. At IDville we’re offering 10% off custom lanyards with FREE setup so your school doesn’t break the budget buying the necessities for students and staff. 

Having to print so many ID badges all at once may also mean that you’ll need to stock up on ID card printer supplies like printer ribbons, cleaning kits and extra PVC cards. At IDville we offer affordable printer supplies for your ID Maker® ID card printer to keep you printer running through the busy start of the school year. 

Even if you don’t own and ID Maker® printer, we have affordable supplies for all the major ID card printer brands. Just visit our Printer Supplies Locator or contact our friendly staff today at 1.866.438.4553 and we’ll make sure we get you just what you need. 

Making badge wear FUN!

While ID badge accessories are a great solution to getting your team or students to wear their ID badges each day, sometimes that’s still not enough. We’re going to give you some fun ideas to help encourage people to wear their ID badges each and every day!

Create a “Gotcha” game where on certain days management or teaching staff will hand out small prizes for those people “caught” wearing the ID badges. The main object is to not tell students or staff when these days or times will be so that they’ll always want to have their badge, just in case! 

Hold a simple raffle where each person wearing their ID badge on a certain day gets their name put into a drawing for a prize of your choosing. As a bonus, each eligible day when people are wearing their badge gets them an extra raffle ticket for the final drawing. Again, don’t let people know which days they’ll be given raffle tickets. 

Turn ID badges into a sort of “pass” for certain areas of the building or certain activities that will be happening. Make ID badges required for entry or participation so that it encourages everyone to wear their badge for the day. 

Simply acknowledging those students and staff with a kind word that are wearing their ID badges may go further than you think as well. Let those who are playing by the rules know that you appreciate their little added effort by telling them “good job” or “thank you”. 

Getting your students or your team members to wear their ID badges on a daily basis doesn’t have to be a daily struggle. Get creative and make wearing ID badges fun!

Another Successful SHRM Conference!

The dust has settled on another great year at the SHRM 2014 Annual Conference and Exposition and we can honestly say it was another great show! What an amazing event to be a part of and what an honor to be able to network with so many great professionals in the world of human resources! 

IDville participated as an exhibit sponsor for the fourth year in a row June 22 – 24 in Orlando, FL. We were able to talk with over 1,600 Human Resources professionals to see how identification is handled in their workplaces. 

SHRM was such a great opportunity to see current customers’ excitement about the success of their ID Maker® systems and to chat with others whose buildings are looking for a security upgrade through the use of ID badges. 

Some of the excitement of SHRM was, of course, watching people’s excitement to receive one of our badge accessory favorites – “bling” lanyards. Booth visitors also took part in games and raffles to win other great prizes, including a FREE ID Maker Value System

All-in-all SHRM 2014 was a great success. We’re so thankful to be able to get out of the office and meet some of our loyal customers and help others to create a secure environment for their team members. And of course, we’re already looking forward to SHRM 2015 in the sparkling city of Las Vegas!

Is Your Building Safe?

by david 12. May 2014 10:33

It’s Building Safety Month! There’s no better time to focus on the safety of your school, office building, warehouse or any other building you’re responsible for. When people think of building or workplace safety they typically think about preventing workplace injury on the job. But what about workplace violence committed by unwelcome guests gaining access to your building? There are 7 easy steps your company can take to keep your employees safe in the workplace and below are a few policy tips to keep your employees or students feeling secure. 

Restricting door access at your facility is one of the key ways to ensure your employees or students are safe. Issuing photo ID badges that double as access cards is a great solution. With photo ID badges you can make sure each person in the building has access to the appropriate areas and anyone without a company or school ID should be questioned.  

Enacting a policy for visitor management is another great way to keep your employees or students secure. All visitors who enter the building can be required to sign in and possibly even receive a visitor ID badge . This will show team members that not just anyone can come into the building whenever they want. Having guests sign in is also a great way for administration and/or management to remain cognizant of who’s in the building at all times.

What better time to really take stock of your building’s safety than during Building Safety Month? The identification experts at IDville will be more than happy to give you more information about the importance of identifying students, employees and visitors.

IDville introduces a new “Trade In – Trade Up” program to its ID card printer customers. Those who own an ID card printer will be able to send their old printer back to IDville’s facility and will then receive a substantial discount on their brand new ID Maker® Zenius or Primacy ID card printer system. 

Customers will be able to take advantage of up to $200 in discounts with this innovative upgrade program. It’s as easy as talking with one of the Identification Specialists at IDville who will give instructions about how to send the current printer to the facility. Two to four weeks later, the customer will receive their credit based on which replacement ID Maker® one box system is chosen. 

The chosen ID Maker® one box system will include everything needed to print the first 200 ID badges along with a webcam and photo backdrop. Those ID badges can then be used for almost any needs the school, business or healthcare facility may have. ID badges are most typically used for quick identification of students and staff, door access, library book checkout, membership cards along with many other convenient practices. 

With companies looking to save as much money as possible, the Trade In – Trade Up program is a perfect way for them to upgrade their current ID card printer system without breaking the bank.

How to get students, staff and employees to wear ID badges

by Kelli 21. April 2014 10:03
Kelli
If you’ve recently implemented a policy requiring your students, staff and employees to wear their ID badges every day, you’ve probably noticed that enforcing that policy is easier said than done! Many schools and businesses find that students and staff members tend to forget their ID badges at home or lose them or “their dog ate it”. Whatever the reason, continuous ID badge reprints can get costly…and it’s a hassle for your administrator taking hours to reprint those lost badges. 

ID badge accessories are a convenient and fun solution to help everyone protect their badges and keep them handy when they need to be swiped or presented often. With a wide range of accessory options, there’s got to be something for each member of your organization that will help them keep their ID badge accessible. At IDville we offer options like cool lanyardsbadge holdersclip attachments and badge reels

Using different colors of ID badge accessories is also a great opportunity to differentiate between grade levels, employee departments and building visitors. This will aid in quick visual recognition of who should be where inside your building. Many badge accessories are even customizable so that you can add your brand or team member names. There are so many options; there’s sure to be something for everyone!
