Just as you would upgrade to a meal deal, add services to your cell phone, or change your ticket to first-class, you can do the same for your ID card system. Either during or after your purchase, you may find you need additional equipment or software as your ID needs change.

ID Maker system upgrades range from printer to software, ID badge to ID badge accessories. Depending on what you need, we've got the upgrade to get you there.

Step Up Print Capabilities

From a systems standpoint, you may start small and work your way up to one with greater output and more security features. For instance, an ID Maker system is a basic package for single-sided ID card printing. You may decide down the road that you require more features on an ID card such as bar codes, or magnetic stripes for data storage. This system is field upgradable, which means at anytime you can purchase a one-time printer ribbon upgrade that turns your single-sided printer into a dual-sided printer.

You may be using a laminate system for ID badge creation. While this is a cost-effective system upfront you may find hidden cost in printer ink, or be bogged down by the labor-intensive laminating process. An ID Maker system helps you create durable, professional ID cards in half the time, without the paper waste.

Add Another Level of Security

Security may become a bigger issue down the road as your staff or student body grows, or as your business expands to other locations. By upgrading to an ID Maker Secure system you get more options to prevent forgery and create unique, secure ID cards. With this system you'll get enhanced Enterprise software with custom reporting tools, network capabilities, and even more ID card design templates, clip art and backgrounds. An ID Maker Secure system allows for holographic overlays and watermarks, and a programmable printer key so your company's logo prints on every card.

Don't Forget to Accessorize

ID badges are more practical if you have a convenient way to wear them. This usually requires a slot punch to make room for an ID accessory such as a strap clip or lanyard. For small production runs, your best bet may be a hand-held slot punch. But for bigger jobs you'll save your arm some undue pain by upgrading to a larger slot punch or a three-in-one slot punch. These deluxe models line up the card for accurate slot punching, and also give you the option of hole, slot or corner punches.

Lanyards keep your ID visible and accessible. There are ways to upgrade these ID accessories by adding your logo or company name, or by using USB lanyards. These are especially handy for college students who may use a shared computer in a lab or a dorm.

We live in a mobile society where business is done over the phone, over email or from a remote location. Your ID card system should be able to travel with you as necessary. A travel case protects your printer and stores components such as a camera or cables safely, no matter the mode of transportation.

Your ID badge system should grow with you. Whatever your needs are, we've got the upgrade solution. Give us a call at 1-866-438-4553 or chat live with an ID specialist.
