WHAT TYPES OF ID CARDS DO YOU OFFER?
We offer 4 different types of ID cards: PVC cards, proximity cards, iCLASS® cards and pre-printed cards.
- PVC cards: commonly referred to as plastic cards, PVC cards come in a variety of sizes, thicknesses and colors. The most standard size is called CR80 - which is the size of your credit card (3.375" x 2.125") – but we also carry CR79 cards (3.303" x 2.051") that are a bit smaller and feature an adhesive back. Thicknesses vary from 10 to 30mil. As a reference, your credit card is a 30mil card. PVC cards can also include additional features such as magnetic stripes for multifunctional badges.

- Proximity cards: “Prox” cards have an embedded antenna that stores the cardholder data. This data can be read when the proximity card is passed within range of a reader. Mainly used for access control applications, proximity cards are also chosen in environments where crowd control is a factor. Prox cards can be programmed online or call us to talk to an ID expert.
- iCLASS® cards: iCLASS® cards combine contactless smart technology with a contact chip and/or a magnetic stripe. iCLASS® cards provide 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technology and allow users to add a barcode, magnetic stripe, photo ID, graphics, or anti-counterfeiting features. HID’s iCLASS® cards can be used for diverse applications such as access control, biometrics, cashless vending, public transportation, airline ticketing and customer loyalty programs.
- Pre-printed cards: this option is ideal for membership cards, loyalty cards, or other ID cards where only a name, ID number or barcode might be added onsite. Let us print professional cards and if needed, personalize them on the spot in seconds. You will get stunning results that will definitely impress your customers.
