How to Display a Photo ID Card

by david 19. July 2010 14:03

Once you implement a photo ID card system, you need to consider your ID card design and how ID cards will be displayed. ID cards are an important part of a facility security strategy, but they must be displayed properly to have their full impact.

First, determine whether your ID card will be displayed horizontally or vertically. This will depend on your ID card design and what features you include. For more information on an excellent employee ID card, visit our Knowledge Center.

Once you have decided the ID card’s orientation, you can review your ID card display options.

Protect your ID cards with a Badge HolderI always recommend customers use badge holders to protect and preserve their ID cards. After all, an ID card is an investment in your organization’s security, and you want to protect that investment. A badge holder protects an ID card from the elements and natural wear and tear. It will reduce the number of replacement cards you need to print throughout the year.

Now that your cards are protected by a badge holder, you can shop ID card attachments. Lanyards, ID strap clips and retractable badge reels are the most popular.

- Lanyards are the ID card accessory of choice for schools. Lanyards are easily customized for different buildings, grades and classrooms, and they keep ID cards in sight.

- ID Strap clips keep ID cards close to the body and are ideal for manufacturing settings where safety is a concern. Right now, you can save 10% on your order when you purchase ID strap clips. Just like IDville on Facebook to get the special offer.

- Retractable Badge Reels are great for organizations that use proximity cards and require employees to use their card to enter the building. Some badge reels extend up to 3 feet, so the ID card is easily accessible for scanning.
