ID Badges for School Photographers

Today school photographers offer services that extend beyond snapping students’ annual yearbook photos. Many school photographers are also in charge of issuing photo ID cards for students, faculty, and staff. Using the same photo taken for the yearbook, photographers can print ID cards on site using one of AlphaCard’s Photographer ID Systems. In addition, many school photographers are assigned their own ID badges by the schools in which they work or contractor for — these may be either employee badges or visitor management cards.

How do School Photographers use ID Card Systems?

Student IDsA lot of school photographers are responsible for supplying student ID cards for including elementary, middle school, and high school students. Student ID cards serve a variety of purposes outside of photo identification, and can provide access to such amenities as borrowing books at the school library, attending school events, receiving discounts at local stores and movie theaters, and much more.

Staff IDsStudents aren’t the only ones who need ID cards to get through the school year — it’s just as important, if not more important, for faculty, including employed school photographers to wear ID badges on them while in the building or on the premises. Staff IDs should be displayed via a lanyard or badge clip to make certain that students, parents, and visitors can see who is authorized to be in the building. It’s a safety measure that should not be overlooked.

Visitor BadgesVisitor badges are an imperative part of a school’s ID card program, as it ensures that intruders and unauthorized individuals can easily be identified if they’re lacking a visitor badge. Today, there are several kinds of visitor badges that exist, including expiring badges that actually change color once the visitor badge is no longer valid. All volunteers, parents, and any other guests attending the school should be armed with a visitor badge.

Access ControlMany schools issue access control cards to faculty members and contractors to make certain only authorized individuals have the ability to enter the building. These cards are usually issued to school administrators, teachers, the photographer, and security personnel. An access control card is a reliable way to prevent unauthorized persons such as intruders from gaining access to restricted areas and compromising security and safety.

Time and AttendanceFor time management of hourly or temporary employees such as school photographers, we recommend time and attendance ID cards. These cards keep track of when the person clocks in and clocks out for accurate weekly hour reports. Time and attendance cards often use magnetic stripes or barcodes that are scanned by a reader and usually work with an existing tracking software program.

Business CardsLet’s face it — many of today’s business cards are flimsy and easily tear, especially when crammed inside a wallet. For almost all workers and employers, it’s necessary to have a high-quality business card to hand out at networking events, friends, and family members. PVC business cards are sturdy, meant to last, and are the perfect solution for a long-lasting business card.
