ID cards can do for your business.
- Corporate. Secure ID badges allow you
to identify your employees and visitors, and control access to your premises
for a safer workplace. Design and issue photo IDs with your logo, text and
pictures. For a higher level of security, add a barcode or encode data on a
magnetic stripe or smart card. Your ID
cards become multifunctional badges and may serve for time and attendance and
access control to company property.
- Education. ID cards have been widely
adopted in all educational structures: not only do they help keep students and
staff safe but they also make daily tasks much easier to manage. For example, a
photo ID badge can help you visually identify students, staff and visitors, but
it can also be used to control access to your school, manage equipment
checkouts and lunch programs, and even pay for campus purchases.

Choosing the right card printer can be
confusing and buying one comes with a series of questions: which software
should I use? Which ribbon do I need to buy? Can I use any camera to capture
photos? Which cards do I need?
This is why the easiest way to print
your ID cards is to get an ID card system! At ID Security Online, we have
already gone through all those questions and we have designed comprehensive
photo ID systems to meet every requirement. Each system comes with a card
printer, ID card software, web camera, color ribbon, and PVC cards.
Taking care of your blank white cards is critical to get
the best quality at every print. Dust and debris on your cards can easily damage your ID
card printer and result in poorly printed cards.
To make sure that you get the best out of your blank PVC
cards, follow these steps:
- Store your packs
of cards in a clean, dust-free environment. Keep your cards in a temperature controlled area to
avoid extreme heat or cold.
- Unpack your cards
only when you are ready to use them. Do not use a sharp object to open the shrink wrapping to avoid scratches
on your cards.

just bought a brand new ID card system to print employee badges. The design of
your cards is pretty standard: it includes your company name, logo, full name
of the employee, title and photo. To do so, you need a full color YMCKO ribbon,
maybe not! Most ID card printer manufacturers offer a half panel color ribbon.
This ribbon is called half panel because the Yellow, Magenta and Cyan panels
are half the size of the regular panels that you find in a
YMCKO ribbon. The K (Black) and O (Overlay) panels stay full size.
