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.

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.

Healthcare themed badge accessories encourage staff safety during National Hospital Week and year round

by david 10. May 2012 07:00

Did you know that May 6-12 is National Hospital Week? For millions of people, this is a perfect opportunity to visit community hospitals and learn about new medical breakthroughs that will improve the health and quality of everyday life. 

National Hospital Week is a time to celebrate the history, technology, and dedicated professionals who serve our communities every single day.  With an abundance of visitors in and out of healthcare facilities, not only during this week but all year long, it’s never been more important to ensure that you can distinguish who is a visitor and who is a staff member.   

To quickly and easily identify healthcare visitors and staff, I recommend using ID Maker™ photo identification systems  to provide a simple solution to create and print ID cards in just minutes. In addition to creating photo ID cards for staff, you can also design reusable visitor badges. By simply attaching a pre-printed ID card to a lanyard or badge accessory, you can distinguish visitors from staff in seconds.

We also have photo ID accessories to encourage staff to wear their photo ID cards. Your staff can express their personality and style with fashion lanyards and badge reels all year long! Display medical position identity cards with staff ID cards, and visitors and patients will be able to easily identify staff roles and positions.

Did you know that you can also display visitor ID cards with antimicrobial lanyards?  The anti-bacterial coating on the lanyard prevents the growth of mold, fungus, or odor-causing substances, so the lanyards can be reused for a long period of time.

It’s important to think about the safety of patients and visitors every day of the year, not just during National Hospital Week. Contact our experienced identification experts for help selecting the right ID Maker™ photo identification system and badge accessories for your facility via email or by calling 1.866.438.4553.

Green ID Badge Accessories are for March Madness and St. Patrick’s Day

by dan 13. March 2012 08:00
dan

We’ve been seeing a lot of green in Michigan lately. The snow has melted and the weather has warmed up, so grass is starting to turn green. We’re excited for the upcoming NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament starting this week. I’ll be cheering on the Michigan State University team, so you know I’ll be wearing green! Plus, St. Patrick’s Day is Saturday. With so much green going on, we had to talk about green ID badge accessories.

If you want to put on a green lanyard or badge holder to prevent yourself from getting pinched this St. Patrick’s Day, we have you covered. You have lots of green lanyard options to choose from, and you can even design your own with our full color custom lanyard options.

Shop ID Badge Accessories 
Our translucent badge reel comes in a bright green color. When you pair it with a green colored frame badge holder, you have a great St. Patrick’s Day accessory!

If you’re not as excited about the color green as I am, you can also find ID badge accessories are green and good for the environment. When you design custom lanyards, choose the recycled vivid color lanyard  option. All the lanyards are made from recycled pop bottles!

You can select a “green” badge holder, too. Our biodegradable badge holders  are made from a corn-based biodegradable film and will easily attach to your recycled lanyard. Complete your ID badge with the 100% recycled badge stock.

This spring, go green with your ID badge accessories to support the environment or your favorite team!

Silicone ID Grippers are the Most Durable ID Accessories Available

by david 22. February 2012 07:00
david

When I talk to customers, I hear a lot of frustrations about ID accessories from other companies that don’t hold up to the test of time. Purchasing ID accessories for your entire team can be an expensive and time consuming process. After all, you want to make sure everyone has the equipment they need to display their ID cards. When your ID accessories don’t last, employees are left without properly displayed identification.

That’s why I’m excited about our new ID Grippers ID accessories, patent –pending. The new line of accessories is made out of silicone, so they’re durable and long lasting. Plus, the new line includes lanyards, bade holders, and all-in-one lanyards and badge holders, so you can satisfy all your identification display needs with a uniform look.

I’m recommending ID Grippers to my customers because of their many unique benefits:

Shop New ID Grippers
Washable.  It may surprise you that ID accessories are a common carrier of germs. Prevent the spread of germs and maintain a healthier workplace by washing your ID Grippers accessories.

Durable. The silicone material is designed to be long-lasting. It won’t tear or break, so you know your ID accessory investment will last.

All-in-One Options. Save money, time, and hassle for your employees with an all-in-one display option. Available in the ID Grippers line, you can equip your staff with a one-piece solution that displays their ID badge in a lanyard and keeps it properly displayed with the badge holder attachment.

Non-Metal Construction. If you work in healthcare, manufacturing, or security, metal can be the bane of your existence. It conflicts with machinery and requires you to remove your badge every time you walk through a metal detector. Because ID Grippers are made completely of silicone, you can wear them with confidence through metal detectors and near sensitive machinery.

ID Grippers are becomign a fast ID accessory favorite with our customers. Learn more about them today by calling to talk to me or one of our knowledgeable service representatives! Contact IDville at 1.866.438.4553.

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!
