How to Start a Successful ID Program
If you are seriously considering implementing an employee identification program, do you even know where to start?! There are likely numerous questions floating around in your head and little guidance. Good thing you found this post because we’re about to spell it out so well your mama could do it. Here is a good to-do list:
1. Compile quotes and do your research – basically you’re going to need an ID Card Printer System. Which is made up of a printer, camera, card design software and consumables like ribbon (ink) and blank cards. You can buy any of these items at numerous online retailers but the real difference is the support the retailer will give you after you purchase.
2. Read the fine print – Printers don’t fix themselves and nobody has time to figure that out. Make sure your vendor isn’t going to charge you extra for help and training. That adds up and no one likes surprise charges.
3. Buying a printer system may seem expensive but it’ll last a long time. The math comes out to about $0.69 per card. That’s much easier to swallow.
4. Again, don’t buy a printer system without a dedicated tech team backing it up. You’ll regret it.
5. Designing you ID card is fun but software is often not very user friendly. If you can, get a free trial of the software before you buy it. You can try our ID Maker Software if you want, we hear it's awesome.
