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.

Schools, apartment complexes, hospitals and many other establishments have a visitor badge list, which requires individuals to sign in at a check-in location and receive a mandatory visitor badge. The visitor badge then needs to be worn at all times to signify to staff and other clients that an individual is authorized to be there. A visitor badge system does not just help create a feeling of additional security. When you find visitor badge options that appeal to you and your clients, you can also improve customer service, client relations and organize your business exponentially.

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.
