5 Tips to Bring Your IDs to the Next Level


Looking to redesign your ID cards and bring them to the next level? Here are the five tips you're going to need to know: Design, features, data, automation and cleaning. Let's break them down and give some samples.

 1.       Design – Less is More

When designing your ID, we quote Leonardo De Vinci - “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Consider which components need to be displayed and which do not. The employee’s name and photo will likely need to be clearly displayed, while security and data features such as barcodes or QR codes, can be placed on the back of the ID. This allows the card to remain just as functional, while leaving the front design clean and professional.

2.       Try a New Feature – Proximity Cards

Proximity cards are a fun and secure way to customize access to your facility. Each card’s permissions can also be changed remotely so access can be turned off if the card is lost.

3.       Take Advantage of Your Data

With ID Maker 3.0 you can create custom reports based on card activity. By looking at card activity you can learn how employees navigate the facility and see the overall flow of your office space. This has been used by several of our customers for building renovations, so they know how to best increase the employee and customer experience.

4.       Automate Card Printing

Whether you’re printing one or 100 cards, automating the card creation process with your internal database is fast and simple. Upload the database and apply it to a new or pre-designed template. The template will populate with the selected user data and all you have to do is click print.

5.       Clean your Printer

Cleaning your printer isn’t a new or exciting tip, but it does work! The idea is simple: Clean your printer as often as the manual recommends, and you will get those clean and colorful prints you want.
