Colored ID cardstock is a fun way to add style to your ID card program, and comes in a variety of hues. Colored cards can be used to clearly indicate clearance levels for secure facilities, different levels of privileges in libraries and media rooms in schools, and more.

These cards are available in standard CR80 size. Standard colors include red, blues, greens, and oranges, and there are also florescent and metallic colored ID cards. Select colors are available with magnetic stripes.

Note that colored cards are best used for monochrome printing—colored designs do not show up well on colored cards. If you want a multi-colored design, consider using white cards and printing a colored background as part of your design.
