Contact-less travel for the London Olympics

If you were worried about dealing with the "Tube" and those big red London buses during the Olympics, have no fear. London is gearing up for the Olympics by making it very easy for anyone to use the transit system with their credit card. Working with the banking Industry (can you say Visa sponsor of the Olympic games) London's transit system will engage a contact-less system usable by anyone with a credit card or other bank card.

Much the same as the contact-less systems and cards that we sell at ID Security Online, the subway and buses will have contact-less terminals only taking seconds to pass through. We think this is a great idea but we only wish they had asked us to bid on the job! We believe we could have beat their price!

Planning to buy an ID card printer?

If you are planning to buy an ID card printer for your company, you will be surprised at the vast array of choices available in the market today. If you are not an ID card printing expert, your head will spin with the number of brands and types that you have to browse through before you can find the perfect choice. But if you equip yourself with sufficient knowledge about buying an ID card printer before you go out to shop for one in the market, it would be easier for you to narrow down your options and make an informed decision. Here are some of the things that you need to think about.


Color or Monochrome

In terms of color, there are two kind of ID card printer. One can print full color while the other can only print in monochrome. The advantage of the former is that it produces vibrant images and attractive designs. However, monochrome is quicker and more cost effective. It only takes about 5 seconds per each card and since you’ll only be using a single panel print, the cost is much lower than full color printing. Your choice between the two primarily depends on the nature of your company, budget, and preference. For example, if your company is a web/graphic design or animation company, it makes sense to invest on a full color card printer since the ID should be a reflection of what a company does.


Single or Dual Side Printing

Another consideration you have to make is whether you are going to print on the front side or on both sides. As the name implies, the single type printer will print only on the front side of the card. If you are definite that the IDs to be printed for your company will only require print on the front side, this can be the ideal option for you. The dual sided printer, meanwhile, has the advantage of printing on both sides of the ID. Obviously, this one is more expensive than the single side printer. Aside from the more expensive upfront cost, the dual sided ribbon used for this kind of printer is also pricier.


Quantity of Cards

You should also ask yourself how many ID cards you plan to be printed each year. If you are a small business, you would only need a few cards a month. But for a larger company, you need to invest on specialized printers that feature high capacity printing of cards. Printer that can accommodate a bigger quantity is more expensive but the investment is worth it.


Printer Brand

When it comes to brand, there is a wide variety of names on card printer manufacturers that you will get to know about when you go out into the market. Some of the well-known brands include Fargo, Zebra, Evolis, DataCard, and Magicard


ID Software

Aside from the printer itself, you should also consider planning your purchase if you intend to buy ID card software. This way, you can be sure that you will be able to make the right buying decision. Entry level ID card software is inexpensive but limited in its capabilities, for instance some software limits the number of data fields per card design. Other software will only allow a limited amount of data records, be aware you may have to up-grade to the next level at additional cost soon after your purchase.

If you plan to “network” the software and place it on multiple computers you will have to purchase a higher level of the software plus additional “site licenses” for each additional user.

The bottom line is to do your homework but do not hesitate to reach out to an expert in the field, most manufacturers will recommend a “partner” in your area that should ask the appropriate questions I listed above and guide you to the correct choices.

Fargo ID Card Printers

Fargo ID Card Printers

A pioneer in the ID card industry, Fargo ID Card Printers work with smart cards, photo ID cards, magnetic stripe cards and proximity cards to establish new standards in dye-sub, inkjet and film-transfer ID card printing.

Card printer/encoders, ID systems and ID software and materials, such as ribbons and films and ID accessories, are some of the products Fargo delivers. ID cards have capabilities companies are looking for, such as financial transactions and network access control card-based applications, to help them improve efficiency and enhance security. Fargo Electronics sells its products through distributors and integrators.

Fargo ID Card Printers can increase security, set up professional identification and allow you to upgrade from a simple printer to one with more advanced, secure printing features. The products, which are known for their power and modular designs, run from the DTC400 to the advanced HDP5000.


For example, the DTC550 Card Printer/Encoder is equipped to encode up to three different smart card technologies in the same pass as card printing and lamination. It also permits centralized or distributed ID card issuance and features an alternative lamination module that makes an extra layer of security available.

The Fargo Persona C30e Card Printer/Encoders, which are well-suited for small to midsized companies, offer new improvements available as a free download. Problems such as loading ribbons and cleaning rollers are eliminated with the products easy to load integrated ribbon cartridge.

Fargo ID Card Printers customers include universities and colleges, local, state and federal governments, businesses and the health care industry. Columbus State University, Maryland Locksmith Association and Sun Country Airlines improved security and high responsiveness using Fargo printers.

Columbus State University selected Fargo ID Card Printers for their ease of use for multiple users and their ability to print debit cards. A few years ago Columbus State University initiated a debit card program for students to help the university reduce administrative costs and simplify business processes.

Columbus State University selected the Fargo DTC400, (which it found easy to use), and allows them to add card access to dorms, vending machines and copy machines on campus. The university improved security and productivity and improved student satisfaction with the new Fargo printer.

Fargo Electronics, which was acquired by HID Corporation in 2006, develops, manufactures and supplies secure technologies for identity card issuance systems. Founded in 1974, Fargo Electronics is headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

Badge Clips

Badge Clips

With today's security conscious society one of the most common security measures taken in the workplace is the ID Badge. One cannot usually enter their place of work without showing their company ID badge to security. Some badges are even required to open doors and get past security gates. The constant need to have a security badge on the worker at all times can be inconvenient, one little tool that can make this effort easier is the humble badge clip.

Having a badge clip can make carrying a security badge easy and convenient. There are many types of badge clips available to meet company security standards and still have easy access to the badge while maintaining a sense of style.

A common badge clip is just a simple clip. You can thread it through a hole punched in your badge and then clip it onto your shirt, jacket, backpack, lunch bag, or whatever else is convenient for you. Just make sure it meets your company's standards for displaying your badge.

Another common use of a badge clip is to attach your badge to a lanyard. There are neck lanyards and wrist lanyards, although the neck lanyard is the most popular. This way your badge is always visible and available whenever you need it. Lanyards come in many styles and colors from simple plain colors such as red and blue to printed tiger stripe or your company logo prints.

Some lanyards are adjustable and some have a breakaway safety mechanism. Some also feature adjustable sliders and safety buckles. Another great way to carry your badge with you is with a retractable badge reel. What makes these so unique is that you can have your badge safely attached to your belt or jacket, but you can pull it to trigger a key card for locked security doors, that require a scan of an ID badge for entry. Once your scan is complete you just let go and the badge safely retracts to its original carrying position.

No matter how you attach you badge the badge clip is the main tool for easy badge accessibility and there are many types of clips to choose from, including simple badge clips and straps to magnetic badge clips, to bulldog and alligator clips. The important thing is that your workplace is secure while still being convenient for workers to access.

Badge Lanyards

Badge Lanyards

While many people may a choose badge clip, there are situations in some jobs where badge clips may not work out as well as you may want. Or maybe you are like me, and simply prefer the feeling of badge lanyard as opposed to a badge clip. Whatever your reason for wanting one, these badge lanyards are some of the finest that you will be able to find.

Why choose a badge lanyard over having a simple clip? I have worn clips quite often, and while I do not dislike them, there are a few things that I find better about lanyards than clips. First off, potentially the biggest one, is that I have a habit of losing things. During the hectic work day, I would often lose my badge while doing something important. The problem with the clip is that, I never realized when I lost it! While I have never lost my badge while wearing it on my lanyard, it would be very easy to notice when you have lost it. Perhaps even more important than this (for those of you who do not lose as many things as I do!) is the fact that lanyards are much easier to deal with than a clip. Just slip it on and forget about it!

There are many kinds of cheap lanyards out there, but some may come off easily, even when you do not want them to, causing you to lose your badge. Having a badge lanyard like that does you no good whatsoever -- you might as well not have one in those cases! But this type of badge lanyard is definitely one of the better ones. I have never had a problem with this type of badge lanyard slipping off when I did not want it to. This helps to ensure that I can spend more time worrying about my work responsibilities, as opposed to worrying about where I lost my badge!

All in all, I would rank these lanyards are being some of the best that I have ever seen. Whether you have a habit of losing things like me, need a convenient way of holding onto your badge, or whatever your reason, these lanyards are definitely the way to go. They easily earn five stars in my personal ranking book. I am sure that they will in yours, too, if you give them a try.
