Print ID cards in seconds!

Creating a professional ID card is easier than it sounds, and it doesn’t take someone in your IT department to put the printer system together! IDville specializes in ID card printers that anyone in your organization can feel confident using. In addition to increasing security and helping project a professional image, ID card printers are extremely easy to use! 

Invest less time and money: An ID card printer saves you time and hassle unlike other pieces of technology. Before converting to an ID card printer, many organizations print paper badges, cut them out, and laminate each one individually. This is a time consuming process compared to the quick print job an ID card printer can do. 

Easy features: In addition to creating professional-looking IDs, the ID Maker software that comes with IDville systems enables you to streamline other processes at your organization. You can use the program to create a directory, for program data, and to quickly print reprint cards.

There are no complicated set-up instructions. We have plenty of resources available for you at our Knowledge Center to help you become the expert at printing IDs. 

Lifetime support: Even though it’s simple to use your ID card printers, it’s common to have questions, too. At IDville, lifetime technical support is included in the purchase of your ID card printer. If you ever need assistance with your printer, help is only a phone call away!

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.

Implementing a visitor management system doesn’t have to be complicated. With visitor log-in books, lanyards, badges, and visitor management systems, it’s easier than ever to make sure that you know who’s visiting your office or building. Tracking visitors not only keeps your building safe from theft and violence, it promotes a feeling of security and well-being throughout your entire organization. 
 

Visitor Login Books: With self-expiring badges, visitor login books are an effective way to track visitors while keeping their visit information confidential. 

Visitor Cards: Choose from reusable and durable plastic PVC visitor cards or one-time use adhesive visitor name badges. 

Visitor Lanyards: Visually identify visitors with bold, bright visitor lanyards. Simply attach a visitor ID card for added security. 

Visitor Management Systems (school edition): Our Visitor Express: School Edition allows you to choose from over 50 badge templates, track and report on visitors, and print visitor badges in 20 seconds or less. 

Do you know who's visiting your office?!
Visitor management made easy! 
 
Whether you encounter fewer than 10 visitors a day or more than 50, a visitor management system should be a vital piece of your daily operations to ensure that you know who is visiting your facility in order to ensure the safety of your employees. 

To inquire about our visitor log in products or if you have any questions, call one of our customer service representatives today at 866.438.4553 or email me today!

Custom lanyards let you be choosy!

by Kayla 30. October 2012 09:05
Kayla
Does your company currently use lanyards to display ID badges? If not, the variety available should make you reconsider!

Custom lanyards are a great way to tell your organization’s story – share themes, branding, and company logo consistently! They’re also a great way to ensure employees don’t damage, misplace, or lose their ID cards, which can be costly to replace. 

Custom lanyards aren’t just for employee ID badges, though! Specialized lanyards are a great addition to a company outing or event. Many associations and trade groups use them for conferences and shows. Include them in employee gifts or give them out to build buzz around special promotions throughout the year. A custom lanyard is a versatile part of a new employee welcome package.

Personalized lanyards need not be expensive, either! Check out our line of quality custom lanyards for as low as .35 each! What an inexpensive way to encourage company branding and promotion among employees!
Be choosy about your lanyard!

Excuse me, I lost my ID card!

by david 23. October 2012 09:56

If you don’t currently print ID cards onsite at your office, hearing “I’ve lost my ID card” from your employees is probably a nightmare. When employees lose an ID card that means you have to not only wait days or potentially weeks to receive the ID, it also means that you have to reach to your outside vendor and send out information for the new ID. This can be a cumbersome process but can easily be avoided with an onsite ID card system. 
 
The ID Maker suite is an ID card system packaged with all of the components you need to be up and running and printing IDs within 15 minutes.  With new and improved software and capabilities, it’s easier than ever to design professional IDs from your own desktop. You no longer need to wait days or weeks to receive your employee IDs! 
Ensure the safety of your students!
 
Find out which system is right for your organization by requesting our free system selection guide. It contains detailed information about each system and the software it comes with.

Healthcare
  • Print ID cards in 23 seconds to identify visitors, vendors, and maintenance crews on-the-spot.

Fall is in the air and children across the country have recently returned to school. Elementary schools in particular are where children spend a large portion of their day for several months of the year – and yet, are you familiar with the safety measures your institution takes when it comes to your child? Do you know the systems that your school has in place to protect against child predators and abduction?
 
Visitor Express: School Edition is a system that offers peace of mind for parents, children, and school administrators. The system uses the following features to ensure security for children within the school building:
 
• Instantaneous sex offender check and mapping                
• Customizable unwanted visitor lists 
• Approved pick-up list                                                 
• Mass-alert in event of an emergency
• Emergency response reporting
• Time-expiring visitor ID badge technology
    
Ensure the safety of your students!
Visitor Express enables secure visitor check-in in less than 30 seconds. Simply scan your visitor’s state-issued ID, check it against the database, print their badge and go! The barcode scanner makes check-out a breeze and quick reports show who is in the building, who they’re visiting, and their location! 
 
When it comes to children, you can never be too careful. Learn about Visitor Express: School Edition and gain peace of mind when it comes to the security of students.
