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. 

Anyone interested in taking advantage of IDville’s “Trade In – Trade Up” program can call 1.866.438.4553 before July 31, 2014 to get started. The Identification Specialists at IDville make the trade-in and upgrade process easy and stress-free.

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

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!

Minimize ID Badge Reprints!

Are you constantly replacing lost or damaged ID badges for your employees or students and staff? Not only will protective ID badge holders save you time, they’ll also save money spent on frequent ID badge reprints. 

From healthcare to manufacturing to education, ID badge holders are a great way to extend the life of your ID badge and protect the data on your badge. Wearing your ID badge inside a badge holder will protect that badge from spills and cracking or peeling. Choosing the right holder and attachment style for your employees or students and staff will also minimize the chance that they’ll lose their ID badge.   

Badge holders are a useful way for your team to display their ID without having to punch a hole in their ID badge. Giving your employees or students and staff a convenient and valuable way to wear their ID badges will increase the likelihood that they will keep their ID badge accessible – which is always a bonus! ID badge holders will also help to easily differentiate between departments or grade levels by using different badge holder colors or styles.  

Badge holders can be found in vinyl, silicone, plastic and many other durable materials. From holders that strap around your arm to those that zip shut for added security, there’s sure to be something for your ID badge needs, no matter what industry you’re in! Even if your company policies require that an ID badge is swiped for door access or to log on to a computer, we have badge holders that accommodate that need as well. 

IDville features several different ID badge holder options with several colors, styles, attachments and for both vertical and horizontal badges. No matter what your badge holder needs are, you’ll find what you need at IDville!

According to recent statistics from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, otherwise known as OSHA, 2 million working Americans become the victims of workplace violence each year. Because of this, workplace security has emerged as a key concern for both businesses and employees in recent years. 

More and more companies across the country, no matter their size, have been shifting more focus and attention to what they can do to reduce the possibility that employees will become victims of workplace violence. One of the most crucial steps businesses can take to ensure their employees are kept safe is to secure the building both inside and out. 

Prevention is a much better alternative to waiting to react until after a violent incident occurs in your building. Restricting door access for building entry and admittance into various areas and rooms is a great way to protect both your team members and your company assets. 

Not only will requiring the use of photo ID badges restrict building access for your employees, it also provides a simple form of visual identification so fellow employees can be easily identified. Requiring all visitors to sign in with a team member as a visitor immediately upon entry into the building is another great way for employees to know who belongs in the building. 

IDville is a great resource for any and all of your company’s identification needs. With solutions for your photo ID badgesvisitor management and simple and stylish ways to display ID badges, you’re sure to find something perfect for you!

Safeguarding your team from any possible threats of violence is a huge responsibility. And we assure you, the minimal cost of your photo ID system or visitor management tool is well worth the peace of mind.
