Available in Standard and Professional editions, the user-friendly design features of eMedia CS2 have been developed and refined over many years to work with eMedia Card Designer templates and to be compatible with all plastic card printers, laser and inkjet printers, ultra portable printers and Adobe PDF.

The flexible functionality allows you to customise both sides of your card with text, images, barcodes, QR-Codes and different shapes.

e-Media CS2 has a design mode and operating mode to allow multiple users to work on data, design and editing at the same time.
