Office Identification | Signs

Two may be better than one!

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.

Meeting and Event ID Badge Creation Made Easy

by Falon 29. February 2012 11:21
Falon

Planning a meeting or event can be very stressful. There are lots of little details that you have to follow and lots people with questions about every detail you've thought about and some you haven't. Providing identification for all your attendees is vital to the success of your event (learn more about event IDs in this blog post), but it can be a lot of work, too.

Creating ID badges for an event has several steps:
- Print name badges
- Assemble badges in badge holders
- Organize badges
- Attach lanyards

All these little steps can become a big obstacle to your planning if it doesn’t go smoothly!
Shop New EZ Meeting Kit
We wanted to make it easier for our customers when they plan events, so we created the new EZ Meeting Kit. The kit simplifies your event planning by combining all the necessary ID badge items into one easy order.  My favorite item in this kit is the travel case which allows you to organize and sort all your badges ahead of time and transport them easily to your event location.


Sometimes, even the best made plans can fall apart, and the last few days (and hours!) before an event are extra crazy. If you need additional assistance with your event preparations, call the IDville team. Send us your attendee list and name badge design, and we’ll print, assemble, and organize the badges exactly how you need them. We’ll ship the completed badges directly to your event venue, too, so you don’t even have to worry about packing them.

EZ Meeting Kit for your next event to reduce prep time and stress so you can enjoy the event, too!

How do you simplify event planning? Tell us about it here!

Falon

When we introduced 95 new products earlier this month, we brought several new custom lanyard options to the IDville offering. I’m excited about these additions because it means we have more solutions to help our customers find the right identification option for their needs.

Custom lanyard are popular for meetings and events. For instance, my co-worker Cori, who writes on the Baudville Recognition at Work blog, is examining custom lanyard options for a family reunion this summer. Whether you’re planning a conference, workshop, or training event, custom lanyards are a great option. They provide all the functionality you need to display a name badge, and they also serve as a small souvenir of the event.

Our new custom lanyards provide several benefits for your event and identification needs:

 Smart Buy Full Color Custom Lanyards – Our Smart Buy lanyards provide the best value in custom lanyards. For as low as $0.79 each, our new Smart Buy Full Color lanyards offer complete customization. Add a logo, graphic, or image and have it printed on the lanyard in full color. With this new lanyard, you have endless design options.

 Big Event Custom Lanyards – If you’re planning a large event with hundreds or even thousands of attendees, the new Big Event lanyards are the solution for you. Choose from 16 colors, standard attachments, and breakaway options.  Plus, Big Event Lanyards ship in 10 days!

Shop Custom Lanyards

  Full Color Elastic Custom Lanyards – Completely customize your lanyard with a full color design on this stretchy and fun fabric. This lanyard only comes with a plastic O-ring attachment, so be sure to order badge holders with a clip.

 Sports Cord Custom Lanyards – For a more unique custom lanyard option, choose the new Sports Cord logo. Add your full color custom logo to the adjustable slide for a prominent brand display.

 Organic Cotton Custom Lanyards – These new lanyards are a comfortable and sustainable custom lanyard solution. Add a one color logo to make it your own. A perfect fit for environmentally-friendly events and organizations!

Time and Attendance

The dreaded Employee ID badge…

by Falon 14. July 2011 09:38
Falon

Many of us are required to wear our employee ID badge at all times while working. If you’re anything like me, or if your employees are anything like me, they fight tooth and nail to try to get away without wearing their badge – why?

Well, for me it’s an issue of “This badge reel doesn’t go with my outfit.” Or, “I’d rather wear a fashionable necklace than this boring, scratchy lanyard.” Our accessories are what set us apart from the rest of the world, especially in a uniform environment. It’s the way we show our personality at work – and a flat woven breakaway royal blue lanyard with a clip just isn’t cutting the mustard!

Shop IDville's Fashion Accessories!

So when I found these fashionable – not gaudy – beaded lanyards and embellished badge reels, I was so excited I had to add them to the IDville product line! The silver spring beaded lanyard is my favorite – it goes with anything and dresses it up with a classy touch of silver and glass beads. If I’m feeling colorful, I’ll grab my frosted fun beaded lanyard for the day. The snap strap makes it so easy to interchange my ID with my lanyard selection to fit my outfit for the day.

Check out all of our fashion accessories today! Whether you’re buying for yourself or for your team, you’ll be glad you did!

Earth Day is this Friday, April 22, and many schools and companies will be celebrating with education and service projects. Earth Day is a worldwide event and many organizations use this day to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.

Even your ID accessories can promote your commitment to the environment for this year’s Earth Day. We have products that are made from recycled materials, so you can feel good about your ID card accessories.

Shop Protective Badge HoldersOur Recycled Custom Lanyards are the most popular eco-friendly option in our store. Each lanyard is made from recycled soda bottles! Similar to our other custom lanyards, you can choose the color, attachment, and message for this lanyard. This option is perfect for Earth Day and every day!

You can display your ID card in a Biodegradable Badge Holder. These badge holders are made from a corn-based film, so they won’t fill up a landfill. The biodegradable badge holder is available in three different attachment options, too.

Create eco-friendly ID cards with our Recycled Name Badge Stock. You can create 300 badges with one box of this paper, which is made from 100% recycled paper stock. This paper option is compatible with all printers and perforates for easy badge assembly.

At IDville, we’re doing our part to conserve the environment by using paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for all of our catalogs. The FSC logo on IDville catalogs lets you know that the paper materials came from a forest that meets the FSC forest management standards. Paper materials for IDville are harvested from forests in Wisconsin, which has more FSC certified forestland than any other state and adds more new fiber than it harvests every year.

We’re doing our small part to protect and conserve the environment, and we hope you will, too! Happy Earth Day!
