Important Information to Know when Ordering Prox Cards

When ordering your AlphaPass prox clamshell cards, you will need three key pieces of information:

  • Your card format—this is most commonly HID Compatible 26 bit (H10301)
  • Your facility code—this will be on the box your current cards came in, and is a number between 0 and 255
  • Your sequence start number—every prox card has a unique sequence number (numbers are between 0 and 65,435) and numbers cannot be repeated, your new card order should start on the next number in the sequence. This will also be on your box.

Keep in mind when ordering AlphaPass clamshell prox cards:

  • Minimum order quantity: 25 cards
  • Lead time for orders of 1,000 cards or less: 1-3 business days
  • Lead time for orders over 1,000 cards: 3-4 business days

Please note that any customization you do to the cards may impact the order processing time.

AlphaPass prox cards are not eligible for returns —please contact AlphaCard sales with any questions.

Unsure About Your Card Format or Facility Code?

The easiest way to find your card format and facility code is to look at the box your last order came in – the card information will be printed on a label on the box. It may also be included in your order invoice. If you have access to your access control system, you may also be able to look it there.

If you're unsure about your card information and cannot access it, AlphaCard can help – just send us your prox card. If we can read it and duplicate the card, we're happy to produce the cards for you at the best prices available. Contact our sales team for more information.

Printing on Your Prox Cards

Customize your prox cards for use as employee IDs, staff ID cards, security passes, and more. Custom printing will make your cards easier to identify authentic cards and eliminates the need to carry additional ID badges.

By default the cards will have a small brand logo and reference number printed in the lower left-hand corner.

Ordering Pre-Printed Cards

If you do not want to print your cards in-house, order them professionally printed by the manufacturer. This is a great option if you do not have an ID card printer, or need to order a large number of cards and cannot handle batch printing in-house.

You will need to provide the card artwork. Need a design? Our card experts offer a custom card design service.

Printing In-House

You cannot print on clamshell cards using an ID card printer. To customize your clamshell cards, print your design on a thin CR79 10mil adhesive card and apply the printed card to the surface of your clamshell card.

Slot Punch Options

Displaying your ID cards with accessories including lanyards or badge reels improves building security and keeps them easily at hand for frequent use during the day. To use the cards with a lanyard or reel, you will need to slot punch the cards.

Ordering Cards Pre-Punched

These clamshell cards are only pre-punched with a vertical slot punch.

Slot Punching the Cards In-House

Because of their thick materials, it is not recommended that you slot punch clamshell cards in-house.

Compatible Card Readers

To use your AlphaPass proximity cards, you'll need a compatible card reader. Compatible readers for this card:

  • HID proximity readers
  • XceedID proximity readers
  • Schlage proximity readers
  • aptiQ multi-technology readers

Prox Card Warranty

The AlphaPass Clamshell card comes with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.

Easy Fast and Afforable
I ordered AlphaPass Prox Clamshells to add to our card access system. We had just recently upgraded and decided going forward to get new cards rather than reusing old ones. I purchased these cards and they worked right out of the box. Setting the programming was fast and easy so AlphaPass could get them set up and we saw no issues transitioning to the new cards.

Better than HID
Alpha Pass Clamshell cards are great access cards and a great value! I consider these cards to be better than HID prox cards. I ordered 50 of these cards and 100 of the HID cards and I have had no failures with the Alpha Pass cards. 15% of the HID cards have failed so far. I will continue to order the Alpha Pass cards.

Review of Alphapass Prox clamshell cards
We recently purchased these cards replacing the HID cards we were previously using and these cards worked great and we got the cards right away. Very good product and we will be ordering more of these.

Great service, great product
I had previously used HID prox cards, and needed to find an alternative to try to save money. I found the AlphaPass cards, and after working with the friendly staff at AlphaCard, our numbers were able to line right up with what they should have been. They work, and I have had ZERO issues with these cards. I will no longer be ordering HID cards, and will always go for the AlphaPass cards instead.
