ID Badge Options

Security Seal

For secure ID badge projects, integrate a holograph-like seal to enhance authenticity. For high security, consider using ultra-violet inks, micro print and guilloche security patterns.

Slot Punch

Eliminate plastic badge holders with this common ID badge feature. Ideal when used with strap clips, reels and lanyards.

Lamination and  DURAbadge ™ 
Protect your ID badge from image fading, surface wear, and stress cracks by specifying a 1 Mil over-laminate. Highly recommended for tech-based ID badges.  Combine composite PVC cards with lamination to produce our DURAbadge, a badge guaranteed to last for at least two years.

Maintain your organization’s image by utilizing your custom logos and graphics.

Cardholder Data

Personalize your ID badge with merged data to meet your display needs; fonts, font size, colors, and location.

Composite PVC Cards

Upgrade your ID badge media to composite plastic for increased durability—a required feature for PVC lamination.


Incorporating a cardholder photograph on your ID badge adds high security and authenticity.

Color Coding
One can quickly identify who belongs in a defined environment or group with a glance using a color coding process.  Do not use fabric photo backdrops as color variations contrast during photo capture and when printed.

Card Statement

Never issue an ID badge with an unprinted back! This is your message billboard to your issued population.


Print consecutive numbers for quick reference of bar codes and encoded values.

Foil Stamping

Make your membership, loyalty, and payment cards pop with this shiny ID card option for custom-printed cards.

Embossing & Tipping

For identification projects that require a manual card swipe device for data transfer to paper.


Landscape or horizontally designed ID badges work best for swiped tech badges and when personalized using large fonts. Portrait, or vertically designed ID badges work best for tech badges that are inserted in readers.

Sort, Bundle, and Ship
Once your  We Print for You badges are printed, they go through a quality control process, sorted in customer-defined order, packaged, and shipped per specified location.
