You need a photo ID system!

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.

How to take care of your blank 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.

New Eco-Friendly ribbons on select Zebra printers

The new eco-friendly ribbons are biodegradable and all plastic components (ribbon cartridges, ribbon roll holders) are recyclable. The new ribbon cartridge has also been designed to use less plastic, which translates into less waste and a lower environmental impact.

These eco-friendly ribbons are easy to handle thanks to convenient tabs to hold the cartridge. The open design uses less plastic and exposes the ribbon rolls, making it simpler to identify the ribbon type and repair the ribbon if it breaks.

Save more with a half panel color ribbon!

You 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, right?

Well 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.

Take care of your ID card printer!

Your card printer is an investment that needs to be protected. If you want to extend the life of your ID card printer, ensure optimal performances and premium print quality, you need to follow a few recommendations.

  • Clean your printer regularly! All printer manufacturers offer specific cleaning kits for every model. To ensure a thorough clean without damaging your printer, always comply with the instructions listed in your printer manual.
    To find the right cleaning kit for your printer model, use IDSecurityOnline’s printer supplies selector.

How to encode data in your ID cards

To increase security and create multifunctional badges, you can encode information onto your ID cards. Card printers come with a variety of encoding options to answer the needs of every application.

Here is an overview of the different options available today:

  • Barcodes
    Easy-to-use and inexpensive, barcodes are easy to set up as the printer doesn’t need a specific encoder. All you need to do is add a barcode to your cards through your design software. Barcodes don’t store data: a barcode reader is used to scan the code.

Maximize the use of your ID card system!

Photo ID Cards Help Maintain Security at Construction Sites

Safety and security at construction sites has never been more important than today. Large and small construction sites have numerous subcontractors on the job site that do not know each other. Expensive equipment and critical supplies are brought in and out of the site on a daily basis. Keeping track of the comings and goings of both people and things are complex and require detail like never before. Job foremen are required to produce more, maintain safety and security and provide more reporting than ever.


Clips, Pins and Magnets for ID Badges

Ensuring photo ID visibility is a part of an important ID program, especially to high security facilities that require identification of any visitor. ID card accessories help display a credential in a variety of ways, with additional features for safety and added convenience. Badge clips, pins, and magnetic plates attach ID cards directly to the badge-holder's clothing.
