Selecting the Right ID Badge Accessory: Protective Badge Holders

Do you often replace broken or worn ID cards for your employees or students? If you are constantly making replacement ID cards, you should consider outfitting your organization with badge holders.

Badge holders extend the life of your ID card by protecting it in a plastic or vinyl case. Most badge holders also have a slot punch, so you can still display your ID card with a strap clip, lanyard, or badge reel. There are a variety of badge holders available for all types of organizations or environments.

 Protect ID cards from fading in direct sunlight:
Maintain great looking ID cards with an Anti-Print Transfer Badge Holder. This badge holder won’t stick to your ID card and prevents the ink from fading. It will keep your ID card looking great!

 Maintain a clean and healthy work environment:
Prevent your ID card from transmitting germs with a Sealable Badge Holder. The seal isolates the ID card from any germs or bacteria and is easy to wipe clean. Ideal for healthcare facilities and childcare centers, a Sealable Badge Holder will promote a healthy environment.

 Keep your ID badges visible and out of the way:
Get ID cards out of the way with an Armband Badge Holder. This badge holder is worn around the upper arm, and a colorful elastic band makes it clearly visible. Perfect for employees who do physical labor or manufacturing work, the Armband Badge Holder is a safe way to display ID cards.

 Designate levels of access, grades, or additional security information:
Use Colored Bar Badge Holders. These colorful badge holders make different security designations visible from a distance. Our Colored Bar Badge Holders are perfect for schools and will clearly identify students from various grades or buildings.

 Secure your RFID technology:
Protect your information with an RFID Secure Badge Holder. RFID chips encode personal information into your ID card. However this information can easily be stolen. Safeguard your employees’ and company’s information with this secure badge holder.

Earth Day is this Friday, April 22, and many schools and companies will be celebrating with education and service projects. Earth Day is a worldwide event and many organizations use this day to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.

Even your ID accessories can promote your commitment to the environment for this year’s Earth Day. We have products that are made from recycled materials, so you can feel good about your ID card accessories.

Shop Protective Badge HoldersOur Recycled Custom Lanyards are the most popular eco-friendly option in our store. Each lanyard is made from recycled soda bottles! Similar to our other custom lanyards, you can choose the color, attachment, and message for this lanyard. This option is perfect for Earth Day and every day!

You can display your ID card in a Biodegradable Badge Holder. These badge holders are made from a corn-based film, so they won’t fill up a landfill. The biodegradable badge holder is available in three different attachment options, too.

Create eco-friendly ID cards with our Recycled Name Badge Stock. You can create 300 badges with one box of this paper, which is made from 100% recycled paper stock. This paper option is compatible with all printers and perforates for easy badge assembly.

At IDville, we’re doing our part to conserve the environment by using paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for all of our catalogs. The FSC logo on IDville catalogs lets you know that the paper materials came from a forest that meets the FSC forest management standards. Paper materials for IDville are harvested from forests in Wisconsin, which has more FSC certified forestland than any other state and adds more new fiber than it harvests every year.

We’re doing our small part to protect and conserve the environment, and we hope you will, too! Happy Earth Day!

The Case for Secure Environments in Business, Education, Healthcare and Government

by david 6. April 2011 12:12

Just as your DNA identifies you from a biological standpoint, your photo identification is a multi-functional document that identifies you by sight. A photo ID is required for building access, banking functions, driving a car and even picking up a package.

In many industries it's important to identify staff, patients, visitors and students. Not only are you identifying who is authorized to be on the premises each day, you are also identifying visitors who may, or may not, have a legitimate reason to be on the grounds at all.

There are many reasons to identify, however let's take a look at two critical reasons why your business or school should invest in an ID card system: security and efficiency.

Limited Access Creates a More Secure Environment

Shop New ID Maker PrintersNational Institute for Occupational Safety and Health research establishes an access card as a prevention strategy for workplace violence. A proximity, or what is sometimes referred to as a smart card, is commonly used to limit access to rooms, buildings and grounds. Other applications include payment or public transit fare cards.

 From a security standpoint, the staff or student would need to pass the card over a reader in order to access a gate or door. Proximity cards can easily be turned into a photo ID card by printing a digital image on an adhesive plastic card that attaches to the existing access card. This also saves cost during an authorized personnel change since the proximity card does not have to be re-programmed, only the adhesive ID badge needs to be removed.

This blog entry is taken from our "ID Card Systems - Why Identify" white paper. Read the rest of the article in our Knowledge Center.
