Top 5 ID Maker Software Tips

1. Extra security features.
ID Maker software is packed with great security features to make your IDs more secure.  Add a signature, ghost photo, fingerprint, or even mask your barcode.  To add one of these elements, simply click on Modify > Add an Element right from the Card Creation screen.

2. Design help with templates
Want to get more uses out of your PVC card system besides making employee or student IDs?  Use one of our predesigned templates and over 300+ background and clip art designs in our ID Maker software to make lunch cards, gift cards, member rewards, or pocket-sized informational cards.

3. Lock an element
Did you know you can ‘lock’ the design of your ID layout in ID Maker software? Locking an element will hold its position so it cannot be moved to another position on the card.  To lock an element, click the appropriate element on the card so that a red box appears around it. Then click on the padlock button (under the Formatting tab in the Card Creation window) to 'Lock it'.  To the right of the card layout, a lock icon is visible.  The icon will appear red when an element is selected and locked.

4. Import images
Can’t find the right image in ID Maker’s clip art library? It’s easy to import your own image. Simply go to the “Card Creation” screen and click on the graphic button under “Design Tools.” Then choose “Import Logo” and select your graphic. Ta da!

5. Create a directory
Want to make a directory with your information in ID Maker?  ID Maker 2.0 Pro and Enterprise editions have been integrated with the Crystal Reports XI engine to produce over 40 standard report templates. To access these reports, click on File > Reports.  You can sort by any field!
