Print Longer Lasting, Secure IDs

If you're looking for a comprehensive ID badge solution, look no further than a PVC card system. Despite what you may have heard plastic card systems are not just for large card volumes, and won't break your budget. It doesn't matter if you're printing 50 or 5,000 cards; an ID Maker photo ID system fits the bill.

Consider this when looking at a photo ID system:

  • A complete photo ID system in one box: camera, printer, software, card stock and a backdrop. Don't need a camera? We'll build a package to meet your needs, not waste your time with unnecessary equipment or features.

Laminate ID Cards Save on Cost

If you're printing a small volume of ID cards for short-term use, and you have a very limited budget, you'll want to consider a laminate card system. Everything you need is in the box to get started: camera, software, universal laminator, camera, laminating pouches and card stock.

Some things to consider when looking at a laminate card system:
  • Works best for low production runs
  • Laminated cards don't last as long as plastic cards
  • Additional printer ink costs to print your badges
  • Less investment up front
  • No additional security features to protect against forgery
  • Not as professional as a plastic PVC card
  • Laminating process is more time-consuming then plastic card printing
