Membership Card Maker

Whether you represent a gym, a movie rental service, a country club or a retail store, having the freedom to make your own ID cards in-house means that you can offer your members instant access to everything your business has to offer. Instead of issuing temporary ID cards that can be easily forged or dealing with membership cards getting lost in the mail, a card printer is an investment that will save you time and money in the long term. For small retail businesses, manual-feed membership card maker like the Magicard Pronto will suffice, while larger organizations, like fitness centers or grocery chains, may benefit from an automatic-feed ID card maker like the Evolis Zenuis or the Fargo DTC1000.


How a Membership Card Maker Can Save Time and Money

ID card software like Alpha Track can be used to track attendance, give members statistics on how often they use your facilities and provide helpful data to your customers that details what products or services are most popular with members. At a facility that contains expensive equipment and supplies-- like gyms, photography labs or art studios-- this may also be beneficial for security reasons, since you'll always know who is present at any given time. Video rental store employees may track the movies a customer has rented, how often they rent and what genres dominate an individual's movie-watching repertoire. Membership cards can even function as financial credit cards. A tanning salon may sell packages that offer a discount when a a member pays for a certain number of visits at once.Whatever products or services you provide, a membership card maker can help you create a convenient, financially lucrative program that will keep members coming back, time after time.


Things to Consider When Choosing a Membership Card Maker

  • Do you work in a business that is completely based on member subscriptions, or are you creating an entirely new customer or member loyalty program?
    If you need to print--or re-print-- large numbers of membership cards at once, you should purchase a membership card maker with an automatic card feeder. If, however, you plan to create an entirely new membership program in which you'll likely be handing out one or two cards at a time, a hand-fed system will suffice.
  • Do you expect significant growth in membership numbers within the next five to ten years?
    If you anticipate significant growth, get a membership card maker that can grow along with your business; many card printers, like the Fargo DTC550, are modular and allow you to add encoding units, lamination and Ethernet networking later on.
  • How important are facility security concerns? Or, do you have expensive equipment to protect?
    If you worry about security, you might want to make photo ID cards that contain anti-forgery measures.
  • How often do you sign up new members?
    If you sign up new members one or two at a time, a hand-feeder will suffice. But if you need to print large numbers of cards at once, you'll need an automatic card feeder and a faster print speed.
