How many IDs will you print per year

ID Makers

ID card printers make it easy to design and print plastic cards for a variety of uses around your office - employee ID cards, visitor passes, security passes, time and attendance cards, access control, and more!

ID Makers?

Did you know an ID maker can become one of your most valuable office supplies? Sure you have computers, pens, printers, papers, and a working fax machine - why would you need an ID maker? Aside for creating professional employee badges, ID card printers can increase efficiency and improve security.

Ways to Use Plastic ID Cards

Take full advantage of all the features in your ID maker with these twelve common ways to use ID cards, in addition to just creating photo ID badges:

  • Business cards
  • Membership cards
  • Promotional cards
  • Key tag cards
  • Loyalty cards
  • Gift cards
  • Greeting cards
  • Event badges
  • Visitor & volunteer badges
  • Cashless payment cards
  • Time & attendance cards
  • Access control

How ID Makers Improve Security

The most obvious way they make your office more secure is by printing custom, unique employee badges and requiring them to be displayed at all times while working (using ID accessories). This makes it easy to spot employees, so you'll know when someone isn't authorized to be there.

Your badges can also be designed and printed with several security features so you can verify the cards are real - consider things like holographic laminates or overlays, secure details in your cards that are harder to copy, clear laminates that make it harder to tamper with cards, and more.
