Create effective ID cards with a custom hologram

If your business or organisation requires employees to identify themselves, then an ID card is the quickest and easiest way for them to do this. In today’s world security is of the utmost importance, both for the business itself and its employees. A high security custom hologram can help to reduce the risk of counterfeiting, as it is difficult to forge and easy to validate on sight.

Photographic ID cards are a cost-effective way to authenticate employees, but before you decide exactly how to design your ID cards you need to answer three questions:

  • What are the unique requirements of your business?
  • What is the level of security needed?
  • What security technologies are currently being used and how can an ID card complement them?

As experts in security print, we can help you to answer these questions. If you think you already know the answers, then next you will need to think about the design phase for your ID cards.

The first step is to think about the needs of your business or organisation. Do you run a large business with many employees and visitors passing in and out of the door everyday? If the answer is yes, you may want to consider having separate ID cards for each kind of person who frequents your business, so security staff can quickly validate and know who is coming in and out.

Next you need to decide whether different cards will need different levels of authentication, for example, will some people need higher security clearance and how can the ID cards help to establish this? There are many ways we can assist you in figuring this tricky question out, from printing a custom hologram to bar codes featuring encoded information. Bar codes can be printed onto any ID card, but in order for them to be read you will need a bar code reader.

A custom hologram is perhaps one of the most desirable features of an ID card. The hologram can be applied to a card’s surface or even embedded underneath for ultimate security. These holograms are extremely hard to replicate and immediately tamper evident, which is why they are such a popular choice.
