Printer Hire

To hire or to buy? It’s a question we get asked a lot. Is it better to purchase a card printer and run your own equipment, outsource all of the printing or hire the equipment as and when you need it? Or indeed a combination of all three!

It really depends on many factors such as how many cards you print, how often, what you need to print on them and of course budgets!

We’ve collated the following guide to help you make that decision!

Printer Cleaning -Videos

One of the most common reasons for us receiving technical support calls is actually due to the customer having a dirty printer! Printer cleaning is so quick and easy it really shouldn’t be overlooked. Best case you’re looking at an imperfect print on your cards – worst case you’re looking at a broken printer, invalidated warranty and expensive repair bill.

For more information on printer cleaning read here or watch our video on cleaning the Evolis Primacy.

ID Card Centre have another new team member – but this one won’t be doing much for a while!

Ben and Nic are delighted to introduce you to their son Flyn Eamonn Thompson O’Brien, born on Friday 4th March weighing a very healthy 8lb 11oz! The family are all doing great and Flyn’s already been in the office for a few meetings as well as attending his first match at Northampton Saints!


Event Buyers Live

At the end of February we were delighted to once again be part of the Event Buyers Live event hosted by Stand Out magazine. Held at the stunning location of Heythrop Park, the event brought together some of the industries top organisers for 2 days of meetings, education and entertainment.

Event Buyers Live

We were delighted to provide the badges and lanyards for the event, we thought we would try something a little different and using our silver/white cards we captured the theme of the event with a double sided card with a slot punch as well as a kangaroo pouch. For the design we used a special font for a 30s look and more sophisticated feel while the day badge encompassed the colourful nature of the event and included colour coded bands to identify the full delegates, day delegates as well as exhibitors and organisers. The kangaroo pouch contained a map and full itinerary for the event and also contained the badge which was pre-clipped for easy removal and to switch to “night wear mode”!

The event was a real success with back to back meetings for the full time and some really interesting opportunities to work on moving forward. Thank you to Neil and the team for all their work in getting it together #EBL2016
