Single Sided Photo ID System

All single sided photo ID card printers are designed with the capability of printing on one side of the ID card. You can also use such printers to print on both sides by merely flipping your card over once a print has been already done on the other side. Single sided ID card printers are typically smaller in size and can be easily moved from one location to the next. At ID Security Online, our Single Sided Photo ID System includes an ID card printer, ID software, a Digital Camera, and all supplies necessary to get you started printing ID cards.  Below are some examples of the many products we sell that complete your single sided photo ID system.



Pre-Printed Cards

Are you looking to send a holiday greeting to a friend or a loved one? Is your wedding anniversary around the corner? Do you know anyone who is not well and could use some cheering up? Or are you looking to wish someone a happy birthday? Pre-printed cards provide a quick way to share holiday greetings or birthday wishes, but sometimes the message the card comes with isn't enough. When this is the case, you can deliver your own greeting with the aid of a PC printer and a graphic or word processor program. Printing on the inside of greeting cards requires the same printing process as that used on any heavy card stock. Once you've designed your greeting, simply set the printing parameters and print away, customizing your pre-printed greeting cards to your liking.


Establish a Gift Card Program with ID Security Online

Gift cards are increasingly popular, especially around holiday season. From fashion boutiques, supermarkets, Home Depo., Macy’s to hair salons, gift and loyalty cards are offered in many businesses. Most retailers and chain stores have been using and heavily promoting them for the past few years. In fact, the largest selling single item for over 80% of the top 100 retailers in the United States is their gift card. Gift cards are seen to be mutually beneficial to both customers and retailers. The notion of products being offered at a certain discount when using a gift card gives shoppers the incentive to provide their business to the store owner. That is if the customers are satisfied with their purchases. It is practically a win-win situation. Now is the time for you, the small to medium sized retailer and independently owned restaurateur to grasp the opportunity and start your own program. It will look and work exactly like the big guys program, except yours will be designed with a price that you can surely afford.

Printheads vs. Ink Cartridges


What Are The Differences between Printheads and Ink Cartridges?

Printheads

A printhead is usually a moveable part of a printer that contains the printing element. The print head is the element of the printer that applies the image or text to your ID cards. Print heads may need to be replaced when print quality issues cannot be resolved by cleaning the print head. It has a nozzle in which inkjet ink is sprayed onto the paper to be printed on. Typically machines operate with a single printhead, but two can be found in some heavy-duty business models that require better production quality and speed.  On average, a printhead has the ability to deliver up to 3,500 pages per month and a maximum total of 200,000 characters over the lifespan of the machine. There are many types of printers that use different printing technology, but no matter what machine you have, printheads are an absolute necessity.


Badge Accessories

Badge accessories may seem like minor details, but they are actually an excellent way to present your company ID, membership or event credentials, and they will set your company apart from the crowd. It’s only a matter of how you wear you badge. Normally, badges come attached with a variety of badge and attachment accessories. People tend to pay more attention to the details of the badges rather than on the badges themselves. At ID Security Online, we carry a wide range inventory of badge accessories in stock from badge holders, badge clips, badge reels to lanyards. Our line of accessories not only displays your ID but they also serve as a protection to your badges as well.

Cleaning Kits for ID Card Printers

Cleaning kits are a critical component of any ID card program. Regular printer cleanings are crucial for maintaining and extending the life of your ID card printer.  ID card printers are vulnerable for collecting dust from the ID cards. As the ID card goes through the printer they leave dust and debris that can potentially damage your printhead thus resulting ID cards with lower quality images then it would normally print. With routine cleanings and replacement of cleaning rollers, you can expect optimal image quality and a longer life for your card printer. ID card printers should be cleaned and covered when not in use. You should clean your printer every time you change your printer ribbon.  Every card printer requires certain cleaning products to be used as preventive or corrective maintenance. At ID Security Online, we provide cleaning kits designed for specific ID card printers. 


Photo ID Camera

Photo ID cameras are generally used for printing out passport style pictures suitable for your ID card. Many organizations, companies, facilities, educational institutions, medical facilities, and government offices use these cameras as an integral component to the photo ID system.  A photo id requires the visual representation of the card holder on the card. There are a number of options to obtain the necessary picture to place on the current PVC card standard of today.


Photo ID System and Supplies

A photo ID system is an integral component of creating an effective ID program.  In our modern high tech world, photo ID cards are found far and wide with many different uses. Driver's licenses or passports are no longer the main focus for photo ID. With the sophistication and convenience of a photo ID system, companies are able to easily integrate photo ID into their organizations and enjoy the benefits they have to offer. 

ID Badges

ID badges, similar to ID cards, are used for identification purposes.
