Entry-level ID card software programs are typically capable of much more than the term “entry-level” implies. Built with the user in mind, these systems enable one to create professional ID badges and cards in an intuitive manner. Designing a card doesn’t need to be a complicated task. Utilize the software’s built-in design templates or build custom designs from scratch. Either way, plugging text, photos, logos and other graphics into the design is a snap. Add security features such as barcodes and magnetic strip encoding with a few clicks of the mouse. Within minutes you’ll be ready to print high quality photo ID cards.


Managing data is a key element in the process of producing ID badges. ID card software programs are capable of storing photos and large amounts of personal information in a database, enhancing the speed of the card issuing process while effectively organizing the gathered information. Additionally, it’s common for ID software programs to be able to communicate with, and cull information from, existing databases and outside applications.


Another way that ID card software programs strive to simplify the task of creating photo IDs is in the actual image capturing process. With most programs, the software can actually communicate with the digital camera so that when a head shot is taken, the image is instantly saved with the proper dimensions and resolution, and imported directly onto the card design.


There’s no reason to be intimidated when faced with the challenge of creating photo ID badges. The software is designed to enable you to achieve your desired goals regardless of your level of experience in designing and issuing cards.
