ID Card Design - What Are Your Options?

While a company policy requiring team members to wear ID badges daily is a necessity for safety, great customer service, and several other reasons, deciding on how to design your company’s ID badges can be a bit daunting. IDville’s sample ID card library has many different design options for your ID card. Below is a guide to some different options you may use for the design of your company’s ID cards.

  • Single-Sided vs. Double-Sided – depending on your ID card needs, IDville offers printer systems which feature both single- and double-sided printing on your ID cards.
  • Card Orientation – Although card orientation seems like a small detail, it will affect the overall design and layout of your ID badges. You’ll need to think about how your team’s ID badges will be used. Card orientation will also have a large impact on how the badges are displayed by team members.
  • Data Encoding – You may utilize barcodes, magnetic stripes, RFID tags and smart chips in your ID cards which will include information about the user.
  • Team Member Photo and Name – Including a team member’s photo and name on an ID card is great for visual identification. Management and other team members will recognize that this person is cleared to be on company property. Not to mention the morale booster of everyone being able to address each other on a first-name basis!
  • Team Member Signature, Company Title and ID # – Including each team member’s signature on his/her ID card will add to the security of the badge and will make it even more difficult to duplicate. You can also choose to include each team member’s title and ID # – this is especially helpful for organizations that have limited building access based on departments or job classifications.
  • Company Logo – Including the company logo on an ID badge is a great way to enhance brand recognition. Customers will see the logo when they’re at your establishment and will likely remember it when they see it outside of the company. 
  • Custom Holographic Overlay or Ghost Photo – For increased ID card security, add a holographic overlay or a ghost photo to your ID badges, this will make unauthorized replication of ID cards nearly impossible.
  • Building Image – Several organizations add a full color graphic of their building to their ID cards. This makes for a nice visual and sets the tone of your organization. Having a great beauty shot of your company makes for a professional display; add your logo and people will really remember you!

Depending on your industry and security needs, the possibilities for ID card design are (almost) endless. IDville has everything you’ll need to get started…in one box! Our ID card systems are packaged with all of the components you need to be up-and-running and printing IDs within 15 minutes! With our systems, you’ll receive our ID Maker Software (which will make designing the perfect ID card for your company a breeze), photo-taking tools and, of course, enough blank card stock and printer ribbons to get you through your first run!

That being said, IDville has great options to offer value AND high quality ID card printing.

We have some exciting news to share- IDville plans to go on the road again and travel to 23 tradeshows across the United States this year! We plan to focus on the education, government, and healthcare industries. If you plan to attend any conferences in these industries this year, you may just happen to see us at the next show! 

At each tradeshow, ID card system and visitor management system demos will be performed on-site to demonstrate the ease-of-use of these products. The demonstration walks attendees through the card creation process, including photo taking, card design, and printing.

Attendees who visit our IDville booth will receive a free gift and the chance to win a Visa gift card. At last week’s International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association show in Las Vegas, we raffled off 2 Cirque Du Soleil tickets. Congrats to Michael from the New England Fitness District- we hope you enjoyed the show! 

         Congratulations Michael!
Congratulations to Michael- our Cirque Du Soleil ticket raffle winner!

If you can’t make it to an upcoming tradeshow- don’t worry. I’d be happy to schedule a demo to show you how easy it can be to create employee ID badges or track visitors. Email me today or call one of our System Specialists at 1.866.438.4553.

Excuse me, I lost my ID card!

by david 23. October 2012 09:56
david
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. 
 
Education
  • Print replacement ID cards whenever a student, staff, or faculty members needs one.
  • Eliminate the time students and staff go without an ID card.
