Your “Top 5 Questions Regarding Photo ID Systems” Answered

by david 15. May 2012 12:03

Whether you’re a government agency or healthcare provider; educational institution or manufacturing facility; your business has a compelling reason to use photo identification. Determining if your company has a need for a photo identification system is easy. The time consuming part is deciding what kind of photo ID system to implement. Let me answer some of the most common questions I get asked as a System Expert. 

 
 Shop Safety Badge Reels

1. What system will work best for my needs?
That depends. How many IDs do you plan to print in a year? Do you want single or dual-sided printed cards? Do you need a high level of security? Most importantly, what will your budget allow? No matter what features you need; we have the right photo ID system for you. 

2. What does my Photo ID System include?
Everything you need to start creating and printing IDs right out of the box! Each of our photo ID systems includes our ID Maker Pro software, a card printer, a Cam, a white backdrop, (1) full-color YMCKO printer ribbon and 100-500 PVC ID cards. 

3. What are the differences between PVC ID cards and laminate ID cards?  
PVC vs. laminate ID cards: PVC ID cards must be printed using a photo ID printer with special printing technologies. Laminate IDs  can be printed from any inkjet or laser printer on our 40lb. photo-quality paper stock and then laminated using a laminator and laminates. PVC ID cards result in better image quality in turn giving your organization a sharper representation.
  

4. What do I need to ensure my IDs are visible? IDs may be worn around the neck, inside of a badge holder, or attached to a badge reel. Lanyards are worn around the neck and keep your ID visible on your chest. We offer many different colors and styles depending on your budget. Click here to see our all of our lanyards. 

To keep your ID protected from the elements, keep it inside of a badge holder. Badge holders come in many different styles, from clear, to colored, to sealable, to hard plastic. Click here to view our badge holder selection.  

Badge Reels are great for IDs being used with a time & attendance or door access system. Most retractable badge reels extend up to 36 inches, making your ID easily accessible and visible at the same time. You can even customize your badge reels with your company name and logo and even each individual team member's name. Click here to see all of our badge reel options. 

5. I’m having issues? Can you help me?
Of course we can! Give us a call at 1-866-438-4553 or email us at support@IDville.com. Did you know we provide free lifetime support? You can also visit our tech support page to find electronic copies of your printer or software manual and trouble-shooting guides.  

Does this answer all of your questions? I doubt it. That’s why our System Experts are here to help walk you through the process of purchasing a photo ID system. The ID Maker 2.0 software  gives you the tools you need to create bold, secure, and professional IDs right from your desktop. It’s that easy. Request your FREE systems information packet today, and you’ll be that much closer to having a photo ID system implemented in your company!

Healthcare themed badge accessories encourage staff safety during National Hospital Week and year round

by david 10. May 2012 07:00

Did you know that May 6-12 is National Hospital Week? For millions of people, this is a perfect opportunity to visit community hospitals and learn about new medical breakthroughs that will improve the health and quality of everyday life. 

National Hospital Week is a time to celebrate the history, technology, and dedicated professionals who serve our communities every single day.  With an abundance of visitors in and out of healthcare facilities, not only during this week but all year long, it’s never been more important to ensure that you can distinguish who is a visitor and who is a staff member.   

To quickly and easily identify healthcare visitors and staff, I recommend using ID Maker™ photo identification systems  to provide a simple solution to create and print ID cards in just minutes. In addition to creating photo ID cards for staff, you can also design reusable visitor badges. By simply attaching a pre-printed ID card to a lanyard or badge accessory, you can distinguish visitors from staff in seconds.

We also have photo ID accessories to encourage staff to wear their photo ID cards. Your staff can express their personality and style with fashion lanyards and badge reels all year long! Display medical position identity cards with staff ID cards, and visitors and patients will be able to easily identify staff roles and positions.

Did you know that you can also display visitor ID cards with antimicrobial lanyards?  The anti-bacterial coating on the lanyard prevents the growth of mold, fungus, or odor-causing substances, so the lanyards can be reused for a long period of time.

It’s important to think about the safety of patients and visitors every day of the year, not just during National Hospital Week. Contact our experienced identification experts for help selecting the right ID Maker™ photo identification system and badge accessories for your facility via email or by calling 1.866.438.4553.
