are increasingly popular, especially around holiday season. From fashion
boutiques, supermarkets, Home Depot, 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.
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.
Difference between a single-sided ID card printer and a dual-sided ID card printer?
A double sided printer will print on
both sides of the ID card whereas a
single sided printer will only print on one side of the ID card. A single sided printer is necessary
for creating ID cards with limited cardholder information. It has a full color
and monochrome printing capability. It offers magnetic stripe and smart card
encoding options. You can choose direct-to-card or a stunning reverse transfer print
technology. Printing ID cards from a single sided printer can be time
consuming. Most card printer manufactures discourage the use of a single sided
printer primarily that this printer tends to damage the sensitive print heads in
the print cards.

A bundle is an aggregation of products or services brought
together in one comprehensive package. Many businesses utilize bundles, also
known as product or service bundling, for a variety of reasons.
Reasons for Bundles - the Consumer End
One of the main reasons businesses decide to create
bundles is that consumers often search for the simplest and most direct way to
make a purchase. A bundle that has packaged together several products makes for
an easier purchasing decision on the consumer end. Another reason is related to
indications that consumer demands are relatively different and difficult to
pinpoint. For example, market research studies show that consumers will value
separate products at varying amounts. For instance, one customer will assign a
high value to “Product A” and a low value to “Product B,” while another
customer assigns a low value to “Product A” and a high value to “Product B.” In
this scenario both consumers want to buy both products, but each believes that
one of them is overpriced or not worth the money. By combining both products
(or more) into a package for a fixed price, both consumers are more likely to
purchase the package.
A third reason for bundling is that consumers benefit from
the range of products that are included within a particular bundle. Several
industries require products that either complement each other or without which
functionality is difficult or limited. For example, most industrial or
professional grade card printers require some sort of software ID program in
order to perform specific types of print jobs. A consumer can either decide to
purchase each product separately or he can opt for a bundle that includes both.
Reasons for Bundles - the Business End
From the business end, manufacturers or vendors may choose
to create a bundle with another manufacturer or vendor of a product or service
belonging to a related industry.
