Protect K_ _ S. "ID" is key

by Kelli 25. February 2015 15:38

It’s a busy time for our education tradeshows at IDville. Jason just got back from the National Association of Secondary School Principals tradeshow, and in the coming month, we have four more education tradeshows to attend!

Education World® notes that ID badges are a great way to enhance school security in their recent article, Badge, Please? Schools Turn to IDs to Enhance Security. ID badges are an effective and simple way to make sure everyone on campus belongs there. With everyone wearing ID badges, it is easy to identify who is official from a safe distance. They’re a great tool for campus access and control. With recent school violence, it’s better to play it safe!

Some school officials are apprehensive about the idea of staff ID badges. They don’t want their school to become a cold, institutionalized place. To make badges warm and friendly, try putting your school emblem on them and create your own design! Fancy them up with a fun lanyard or badge reel to add some personality!

Requiring badges for teachers and students is a great way to ensure security for the kids, and what could be more important? To learn more about simple solutions for your identification needs, contact one of our system specialists at 1.866.438.4553, shop online at, or find us at any of these tradeshows.

Having a hard time getting your students, staff, or employees to properly display their ID badges? Lanyards keep ID cards visible at all times! It’s not too late to get your school or organization equipped with the right photo ID accessories. 
Here are some recommendations for school and company lanyards options:
Stock Lanyards for Students/Employees. Identification is crucial to the safety and security of your students and staff members, but making sure they display their ID card can be a challenge. Stock lanyards are an affordable option you can choose to give each person a way to display their ID card. You can always add a breakaway function for added safety. 
Theme Lanyards for Visitors. Whether you work in a school, on a college campus, or in an office building, there’s bound to be visitors coming in and out of your facility. Protect your students and staff by requiring all visitors to wear a themed lanyard when they are in the building. This will help everyone easily identify visitors. 
Fashion Lanyards for Office Staff. Who doesn’t enjoy being choosey? Allow your office staff to choose their favorite style and colors from our assorted beaded lanyards to fashionably display their ID card. 
USB Lanyards for Teachers/IT.  Welcome new teachers or IT personnel with a USB lanyard they can use to both display their ID card and carry around important data. The USB lanyard has 1 GB of storage and easily detaches from the lanyard.

Education, healthcare, and manufacturing especially have varying photo ID card requirements to keep their staff, patients, and students safe.

Hospitals, doctor offices, nursing homes, and other healthcare organizations all have a responsibility to protect their staff and patients from both external and internal threats, including germs!

Security should always be a top priority at schools, so equipping staff, students, and teachers with the proper identification is important. To ensure your school members are properly displaying their ID cards, give them the right accessories to wear.
