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!

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!

Voter ID cards are an essential part of the upcoming election

by david 18. September 2012 09:05
david
One pressing issue surrounding the upcoming presidential election is that of voter identification. Several states have recently implemented controversial voter ID laws that raise questions and concerns for many citizens. What is considered proper identification? What about those currently registered to vote who do not have the proper ID cards? And, most importantly, what about those people that will be excluded from the pending election due to improper identification – the elderly, impoverished, and students?
 
More than 30 states have enacted a voter identification law, aimed at preventing voter fraud. Those that oppose the laws are low-income voters and minorities who might not have access to a state-issued ID card. Proponents of the law argue that proper identification is a critical way to avoid voter fraud.  
ID cards ready in minutes!
    Learn more about photo ID systems!

The voter ID issue is becoming central as local and state governments prepare for the election in November. What’s your take on the controversy? 
 
At IDville, we specialize in photo identification systems and accessories. To learn more about ID card systems, click here.  
 
If you have questions regarding incorporating a photo identification system to create voter ID cards, contact one of our identification system specialists at 1.866.438.4553 or email me today!

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

It’s Time to Order Supplies!

by david 31. July 2012 09:45
david
You’ve bought a photo identification system and now you need to purchase printer supplies. Where do you begin? Right here with IDville’s Printer Supplies Locator! Whether you own an ID Maker printer, Zebra printer or an Evolis printer, we have all the supplies you need; from printer ribbons, ID cards, to cleaning kits to keep your printer in tip top shape!  
 
 
 
Shop our ID Maker Systems.
        Use IDville's Printer Supplies Locator today! 
 
Printer Ribbons: Just like there are many printers to choose from, there are also many printer ribbon options. There are options to help prevent from wear and tear, print in color on one side and black on the other, and options for printing single-sided or dual-sided cards.  
 
ID Cards: There are endless possibilities when printing on ID cards. You can choose from PVC cards with varied thickness, colors, and encoding options, paper ID cards that are perfect for creating laminate IDs, meeting name tags, or special event name badges, and even HID cards that are encoded with proximity badge functionality to integrate with your door access or time and attendance system.   
 
Badge Slot Punches: Badge slot punches add ID wear by providing a slot for a lanyard, badge reel, or clip attachments to secure your badge. You can also choose from a 3-in-1 badge slot punch that has slot, hole, and corner punch options. Badge slot punches work with laminated or plastic ID badges.
 
Cleaning Kits: It’s highly recommended that you clean your ID card printer with a cleaning kit every 700-1,000 ID cards. Because each printer works differently, it’s important that you use the specified manufacturer kit. Each cleaning kit includes a cleaning card that looks like a PVC card but it’s soaked in a cleaning solution. The card is inserted into the ID card printer and cleans all of the rollers. This is a must! 
 
Your ID card printer is a valuable piece of equipment so why wouldn’t you take care of it the way you do your computer? If you have any questions locating the correct supplies for your printer, send me an email at david@idville.com. I’d be glad to help! Maybe your question will be featured in an upcoming newsletter to better assist our customers.

Signs it’s time to upgrade your outdated ID system!

by david 10. July 2012 09:15
david
Are you constantly struggling to create photo IDs quickly? Do you find that it’s taking you more time than it’s worth to print cards? Or are you currently using an outside source and it's taking weeks just to get your IDs mailed to you? If so, then it’s time you update your photo identification system or look into implementing one in your organization!  
 
I recently did some traveling for a couple of IDville tradeshows, and I was astonished at the amount of professionals I talked with that commented, “We currently do print our own ID cards, but our system is so outdated that they look cheap and generic.” The purpose of your ID card is for security and identification. It’s critical that each ID is professional looking and customizable to suit all your needs. Not every company needs access control or added security features such as bar code scanning, but your ID system should have all those capabilities.  
Shop our ID Maker Systems.

IDville, photo identification and security experts, make designing and printing photo ID cards easy. 
 
Set up is simple: Getting your ID Maker system set up is as simple as installing the software and plugging in the equipment. That’s it! We even have brief videos to show you how simple it really is.  
 
Invest less time and money: Unlike most technology these days, an ID card system does save you time and hassle. There are still a lot of companies that print paper badges, cut each one out and laminate them separately. That takes a lot of time compared to the ID Maker System that prints 1 card in less than 30 seconds! 
 
Lifetime support: Have a question during set up? IDville includes lifetime technical support in the purchase of your ID system. If you ever need assistance, we are only a phone call away!
 
Implementing or updating your current photo identification system can be overwhelming. So don’t hesitate to call one of our Identification Specialists at 866.438.4553 with any questions you may encounter through the implementation process. Happy ID printing!

Your “Top 5 Questions Regarding Photo ID Systems” Answered

by david 15. May 2012 12:03
david
Whether you’re a government agency or healthcare provider; educational institution or manufacturing facility; your business has a compelling reason to use photo identification. Determining if your company has a need for a photo identification system is easy. The time consuming part is deciding what kind of photo ID system to implement. Let me answer some of the most common questions I get asked as a System Expert. 

 
 Shop Safety Badge Reels

1. What system will work best for my needs?
That depends. How many IDs do you plan to print in a year? Do you want single or dual-sided printed cards? Do you need a high level of security? Most importantly, what will your budget allow? No matter what features you need; we have the right photo ID system for you. 

2. What does my Photo ID System include?
Everything you need to start creating and printing IDs right out of the box! Each of our photo ID systems includes our ID Maker Pro software, a card printer, a Cam, a white backdrop, (1) full-color YMCKO printer ribbon and 100-500 PVC ID cards. 

3. What are the differences between PVC ID cards and laminate ID cards?  
PVC vs. laminate ID cards: PVC ID cards must be printed using a photo ID printer with special printing technologies. Laminate IDs  can be printed from any inkjet or laser printer on our 40lb. photo-quality paper stock and then laminated using a laminator and laminates. PVC ID cards result in better image quality in turn giving your organization a sharper representation.
  

4. What do I need to ensure my IDs are visible? IDs may be worn around the neck, inside of a badge holder, or attached to a badge reel. Lanyards are worn around the neck and keep your ID visible on your chest. We offer many different colors and styles depending on your budget. Click here to see our all of our lanyards. 

To keep your ID protected from the elements, keep it inside of a badge holder. Badge holders come in many different styles, from clear, to colored, to sealable, to hard plastic. Click here to view our badge holder selection.  

Badge Reels are great for IDs being used with a time & attendance or door access system. Most retractable badge reels extend up to 36 inches, making your ID easily accessible and visible at the same time. You can even customize your badge reels with your company name and logo and even each individual team member's name. Click here to see all of our badge reel options. 

5. I’m having issues? Can you help me?
Of course we can! Give us a call at 1-866-438-4553 or email us at support@IDville.com. Did you know we provide free lifetime support? You can also visit our tech support page to find electronic copies of your printer or software manual and trouble-shooting guides.  

Does this answer all of your questions? I doubt it. That’s why our System Experts are here to help walk you through the process of purchasing a photo ID system. The ID Maker 2.0 software  gives you the tools you need to create bold, secure, and professional IDs right from your desktop. It’s that easy. Request your FREE systems information packet today, and you’ll be that much closer to having a photo ID system implemented in your company!
