Considering Contactless Cards

If you’re considering migrating to contactless cards for your employees or students, you might have heard about the versatility that a contactless card gives both the users and the issuers.

What Size ID Card Should I Choose?

Most people nowadays have a collection of plastic cards in their wallets, of which the majority are the standard “bank card” size—3.370 inches wide by 2.125 inches high. Many customers ask “why, then, if the industry has a standard sized card, are there different sizes and when should I choose them?” This post gives you a little guidance on the different sizes and their uses.

What’s the Difference Between PET and PVC Cards?

You may have wondered what’s the difference between PVC and PET cards used for identification purposes. Here are a few quick guidelines for selecting the appropriate card for your needs and budget.
PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride, an inexpensive plastic material that standard ID cards are made of. It is the generally accepted ID card material for most printing needs. Specifically, if you have a dye sublimation ID card printer, you’ll get the best quality and professional-looking results by using PVC cards for your identification needs.

What is Dye Sublimation Printing?

A dye sublimation printer actually heats a solid directly into a gaseous state, bypassing the liquid state. Both the dye and the PVC card are heated, and the gaseous dye penetrates the plastic. When the card cools, the dye has been chemically bonded with the plastic card.

To achieve photo-quality pictures on an ID card, the secret is in the size and density of each color dot. The ribbon in a dye sublimation printer consists of cyan dye, yellow dye, and magenta dye, and each color diffuses into the card depending on the amount of heat applied by the printhead.

3 Reasons to Use Expiring Visitor Badges

If you have visitors to your facility or are restricting attendance to your event over a period of time, self-expiring visitor badges are an ideal solution to know at a glance who is a valid visitor and who isn’t.

Uses for and Types of Lanyards

Nearly everyone has seen lanyards worn by students, factory employees, retail clerks, and office workers. The lanyards usually hold ID badges that are necessary for school or workplace security. They are versatile enough to be used for other purposes.
