Signature capture and fingerprint capture are often grouped in with biometrics, or the use of human characteristics to authenticate data. Using this data can help prevent your organization’s cards from being stolen or illegally duplicated.

ID card software allows you to add images of cardholder signatures and fingerprints to your ID card designs. Using a signature or fingerprint capture device, you can scan the data and import it to the card as an image.

Please note that although you can print biometrics on ID cards, ID card software doesn’t have the ability to verify or match signatures or fingerprints.

But this doesn’t mean you cannot use the signature to increase security – for example, customers often have to sign the electronic signature pad when making a purchase with a debit or credit card. That signature will be manually matched up against the signature on the card. Even though the signatures aren’t verified by the software, the manual check by the cashier helps stores prevent fraudulent purchases on stolen cards.

Some businesses and organizations also require that you keep a signature and fingerprint in your database, so using an all-in-one system that can capture that data and print your ID cards makes your business more efficient and cost-effective.
