With so many exciting developments in the ID card industry, your student ID cards can be so much more than grainy photos on plastic. It's become increasingly affordable for schools on the tightest of budgets to create cards that can function as library cards, meal credit cards and much more. Some educators have begun using their student ID badges to create merit-based rewards systems based on points, which award or retract certain privileges based on attendance, timeliness and grades.


For university students, student ID cards make great all-purpose campus cash cards. Many universities already implement magnetic stripe cards for rec center, art studio and other access systems so that students enrolled in certain classes can access art studios, computer labs and more with a single swipe. This way, it is possible to track who is in a certain facility at any given time in case of theft, or simply to track use of a certain resource. Student ID cards can also function as library cards and equipment rental cards.


Things to consider when choosing a student ID card system


How many students are currently enrolled in your school? If you expect to print hundreds of new cards every year, you'll need a card printer that has an automatic card feeder.


Will you be using your cards for facility access, as financial credit cards, or both? If you plan on using your cards as library cards and meal cards for K-12 students, a barcode may suffice. However, magnetic stripes will give you the freedom to create rewards systems to reward good behavior, add information from class schedules to allergies to parental custody information-- and Magicard offers a variety of affordable card printers equipped with magnetic stripe encoding.
