There is always a level of uncertainty when choosing a product online. You can’t physically see or feel the product and you have to trust the information that is in front of you and the pictures that are presenting the product in the hopes that you will receive exactly what is promised.
Buying plastic ID cards online can be like that too. You have to trust the store you are using that they will get you the right product that you need based on what is being promised. With that in mind, you should choose a store that provides quality products, is honest and trustworthy and values its customers with great service. You need ID Shop, a leader in providing printing and ID supplies.
Today, we will look at how you can be sure you are choosing the right plastic ID cards online.
Choosing the right ID cards for your business starts by identifying the purpose for the ID cards for your business. IDs are used for many reasons, including identifying employees from other building personnel, visitors or temporary workers. They also can be programmed to grant access to certain rooms or areas within a building, or building access after typical business hours if necessary. They can serve as authorization to use certain equipment located in the building, such as an employee gym, mail room or printing room. Finally, IDs can be scanned as time punches to show when an employee reports to work and to track daily attendance.
Knowing the reasons people use ID cards, it’s time to determine the kind you need. It all depends on what you want the ID cards to do. If identification is all that matters, then a basic card usually does the trip. There are other cards that can be more specific and do more things.
Standard ID cards are commonly PVC cards, used for photo identification and usually no larger than the size of a credit card. PVC cards can be used with any card printer and are economical if you are printing a large amount of ID cards for people that simply need identification and not other security measures.
Standard proximity cards are about the same size as PVC cards, but feature an electronic chip inserted between two thin plastic cards that creates a sandwich effect and uses the electronic chip and antenna as a way to communicate. This is how building and room access can be allowed, as well as the use of certain equipment, all simply by scanning the card. These are the cards you need if you want to utilize IDs for security purposes so only authorized people gain entry to certain areas of the building.
There are also other cards like composite PVC or proximity cards that are much more durable and can withstand more wear and tear than standard cards. Magnetic stripe cards are designed to be swiped with specific information being embedded and programmed into the magnetic stripe. These are good for access and are similar to a card that transfer money for payment like a credit or debit card.
