ID Badges...A Great Marketing Tool!

by Kelli 26. November 2013 09:49
ID badges in the workplace are often primarily seen as informational, a security tool to improve employee and visitor safety. Many companies often overlook the effective company branding that a great ID badge offers.
Company branding is a quick and effective way of letting both prospective and current customers know what your company is all about, adding personal value to your company. Branding is essential to showing what your company does and the benefits customers will receive that set you apart from the competition.
To effectively utilize your team ID badges as a marketing opportunity, design attractive, full-color badges – prominently display your company name, logo and brand colors so they are easily noticed by customers. Having an appealing, memorable ID badge is a great way to promote your brand to both current and potential customers.
Employees displaying badges with the company name and logo will ensure it is continuously seen by customers. The more customers notice your ID badges, the more effective your branding efforts will be, allowing customers to more easily recall your company in the future, and ideally, they’ll continue to do business with you.
You can also give your team options to choose how to wear their badge so they are comfortable and the badges don’t distract them from their daily tasks. IDville has several badge-wear options ranging from clip attachments to customizable lanyards to retractable badge reels along with many other possibilities to choose from. Many of IDville’s accessories are customizable so you can add your logo or company name, again increasing customer awareness of your brand.
To add a personal touch to your ID badges and maximize the branding opportunity they provide, add your own special message – a mission statement, company motto or inspirational message that conveys brand beliefs, showing customers a little extra tidbit about your company. Creating and presenting a brand identity that consumers can identify with will ultimately build their trust and loyalty to your company.
IDville offers both single- and dual-sided ID card printer systems for everything you decide to include on your company badges. Whether the main goal for an ID badge policy is to easily identify team members or keep everyone safe, why not create an eye-catching branding piece at the same time?

by david 26. February 2013 09:29
Did you know that 1 in 20 Americans are at risk for identity theft? That means that today's world demands more security. Identity authentication is a regular part of our daily lives to protect ourselves and our proprietary information. 

One way to enhance security is to implement a photo ID requirement. What you may not know is that there are a variety of features available to prevent the duplication of your ID card. 

Let’s look at some of the ways to guard against ID forgery:

Barcodes- A feature for time and attendance use or any tracking system you choose to integrate with your ID card. 
Ghost Photos- Make an ID one-of-a-kind with a mirror screen image of your picture.

What makes a good employee ID card?

by david 4. December 2012 11:45
This month’s newsletter was focused on what elements make a good employee ID card. Depending on how your company utilizes employee ID cards may determine how you create and print your employee’s IDs. You’ll want to consider whether you plan to use ID cards for security purposes, for door access, or simply for identification. 

Creating the right ID card is imperative to achieving your photo identification goals. By considering the following 5 elements, you can create ID cards that meet your goals. 

1. Design
What information is critical to display on your ID? With dual-sided cards you have the option to add additional important information to the back of the card, such as emergency contact information or a company mission statement.  If it’s not as critical to have extra space, then single-sided ID cards are recommended. 

2. Versatility 
Where will your ID cards be used? Before determining the orientation of your cards, consider how they will be used i.e. access control, time and attendance, or solely for identification purposes. 

Ensure the safety of your students!
3. Orientation
Do you want your employee IDs to be vertical or horizontal? Once you’ve decided the purpose of your ID cards, you can then determine the orientation of your card as this will impact how you wear and display your ID card. 

4. Organization Logo
Visual security elements, such as a logo, are highly recommended if you have security goals in place around employee ID cards. Be sure that the card design is consistent with your marketing and branding (font, logo, and colors) to ensure you’re projecting a professional and consistent image. 

5. Employee Picture
It’s standard for ID cards to include a picture on the front of the card for identification purposes. The photo makes it unique to the individual employee and is easily visible.
