ID Maker 3.0 – Easier. Faster. Better.

by Kayla 28. August 2012 10:11

IDville is excited to announce the release of ID Maker 3.0 – the latest version of our system designed to make printing secure, professional IDs simple! 
 
All-new ID Maker 3.0 is the most robust, yet easy-to-use product for designing, printing, and encoding your ID cards. It has a streamlined interface with added features such as database integration, smart card encoding, an enhanced camera tool, and many more new features! 
 
We expect 3.0 to be easier than ever to use, and there are several important reasons the upgrade is critical for current system users: 
  • Enhanced compatibility with other commonly-used systems - to ensure future alignment between software, operating systems, and hardware (i.e. new Windows editions, new computers).
  • Improved camera tool and support – we need to continuously improve our camera tools and support systems to ensure the highest quality photos and ease of use.
  • Remaining modern and competitive to provide the best badging software possible – we need to stay in front of what’s going on in the rest of the world of software and hardware. 
See all the new features of ID Maker 3.0!
     Watch the ID Maker 3.0 Demo Today!

The newly updated system has a redesigned user interface with intuitive menu options, among many other features. A few of the improved features in 3.0 include a dynamic text alignment tool, a new photo component tool that allows for live picture mode with more digital cameras, and 50% less screens to use! 3.0 is also at the forefront of modern technology with Smart Card encoding and new QR barcode technology.

Choosing the Right Photo Identification Card Printer

by david 22. August 2012 11:30
david
Choosing an ID card printer is never an easy process, especially when there are so many options available. Do you want a printer that prints one or two-sided ID cards? Do you intend to print 100 or 1,000+ ID cards a year? What does your budget allow you to spend? Are you looking for advanced security features? 

All of these questions are factors to consider when choosing which type of photo identification card printer to implement into your organization. And we’re here to help make the purchasing process easier for you! One of the benefits of our ID card printers is that the printer can be purchased separately or as a system package. Each ID Maker System includes: 
 
ID cards ready in minutes!
 
The goal of the ID Maker System is to make creating and printing photo IDs easy for you and your staff.
 
Don’t forget to clean your printer! Keep your ID Maker printer running at its peak performance by following recommended cleaning schedules. I recommend a cleaning cycle every 700-1,000 prints. This ensures high-quality, digital photo IDs. Each cleaning kit includes cleaning cards and a pen. 
 
Follow these simple instructions to clean your ID Maker Printer: 
  • Press MENU then select “Clean Rollers” and follow the prompts on the printer.  
  • Remove the card hopper from the back of the printer. 
  • Open the lid and remove the dye-film. Leave the lid open.
  • Open the protective packet and remove the cleaning card. 
  • When prompted, insert the narrow end of the card into the card feed slot. The cleaning process will run automatically, and then the card will be ejected. 
  • Remove the card and repeat when necessary. 
Are you a customer of IDville? If so, let us know how your products are working out for you! If you think one of our ID Maker systems may be right for you, give one of our identification experts a call today at 1.866.438.4553.

ID Card Printer Maintenance | ID Card Printers

Two may be better than one!

by Falon 7. August 2012 09:35
Falon
Single-sided or dual-sided? It’s one of the first questions you should ask yourself when purchasing a photo identification printer.  Depending on how you intend to use your ID cards will determine which type of printer you should purchase. 
 
The main different between the single and dual-sided printers is the amount of printing space per card. A one-sided card will have very limited space whereas a dual-sided card provides extra room for additional information. A dual-sided card has capabilities to add a barcode, magnetic stripe, or even a fingerprint for added security. On the back of the card you can also add valuable information that you don’t want displayed on the front such as, emergency contact information, mission statement, or an address where lost cards can be returned to. 
  Shop our ID Maker Printers.
  Not sure which ID Maker System or Printer is right for you?
               
Request more information today!  
 
If you plan to display your ID cards with a lanyard or badge reel, you may want to duplicate important information from the front of the ID card, to the back. Cards can easily get turned over and you want to make sure that the proper information is always displayed.
 
Not sure that you’ll need a dual-sided printer? We have another option! You can choose an ID card printer that is field-upgradable. These printers can be converted from a one-sided to a two-sided printer, like our ID Maker Printer, without a major expense to you.

2012 Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference a success for IDville!

by Kayla 29. June 2012 15:15
Kayla
I just returned from the 2012 Society for Human Resources Management Annual Conference and it was a huge success! It was a packed show with over 14,000 attendees and 650 exhibitors. "The exhibit hall was like the size of a small city with vendors from around the country giving away awesome gifts while pitching their products and services. It was impressive!” commented David, Identification Expert. This is the second year that IDville has particiapted in this conference and it's been a wonderful experience.
 
IDville participated as an exhibit sponsor June 24-26 in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center. We were able to speak with over 1,100 HR professionals about the importance of photo identification and security in the workplace. 
Like our Facebook Fan Page!
Falon, Dan, David, & Kayla enjoying SHRM 2012!
 
As a new addition to the IDville team, it was great to meet new people and see their excitement towards implementing and/or updating their current photo identification system. It seemed as though many of the HR professionals I chatted with were either frustrated with their outdated ID system or their current system was simply too complicated. By having our ID Maker Systems on hand we were able to perform live demos to show how easy it is to design and print IDs from your desktop.  To view sample ID cards, check out our ID card library. 
 
Part of the fun was seeing the eagerness of the attendees to sign up for our raffle prizes! We raffled of 2 sets of 2 tickets to the world famous Georgia Aquarium and a $200 Visa gift card. Congratulations to Sandy from Georgia and Laura from Michigan. They were our 2 lucky winners for the aquarium tickets. Also congratulations to Rod from Nebraska who won our $200 Visa gift card. Enjoy! Be sure to “like” our Facebook Fan Page and check out photos from the conference. 
 
I look forward to attending the Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference in 2013 in the wonderful city of Chicago and seeing some familiar faces!

Top 10 Reasons to Identify with ID Cards

by david 24. October 2011 11:20
david

Do you identify staff and visitors at your organization? Why not!? Here are my top ten reasons you should identify with an ID card system. 

1. Safety is everyone's priority - Not just building and grounds safety, but personal safety should be an important part of your building plan. Know who is roaming your halls and corridors and manage building or room access with a single card.

2. Time and attendance capability - Track hours for payroll with ease. You can transform an access card to a photo ID plus an access card by creating a plastic overlay that adheres to any proximity or HID card.

3. Make the best use of your time - Avoid labor-intensive paper laminate cards that don't last. Plastic ID cards have more functionality and security, and they print in less than a minute per card.

4. Make the best use of your dollars - An ID Maker System is all-inclusive without any hidden costs. Everything you need to get started today for creating and printing ID cards, right out of the box. Learn more about ID Maker Systems

 5. Appropriate for use in government and healthcare industries - Remain compliant with federal and state ID card and information mandates when you design and print your own ID cards.

6. Multiple functions on a single card - From a student perspective, incorporate a photo ID with cafeteria and library services. For the office, combine a time card with building access.

7. Reduce waste and costly reprints - Sturdy plastic ID cards last 20 times longer then a paper laminate card.

8. Reduce fraudulent reproduction - Make ID cards tamper-proof with unique security features such as holographic overlays, ghost photos, and printer memory card capabilities.

9. Create your own rewards/membership programs - Advertise your business with a rewards card, or print your own gift or key cards. The possibilities with an ID Maker System expand beyond identification.

10. Lifetime, technical support whenever you need it - You are never on your own! With every system purchase, you get free technical support for as long as you own the system. We're the experts, and we do it right!
