Here is the final instalment of this trilogy of blogs on ID Card security and encoding options.
Today we’ll take a look at some card security features that you may wish to consider for your ID cards.
Why would you add additional security features to the physical card itself?
The best answer to this question is to stop forgery. Take out your driving license and have a look over the texture and background of the card. You will see numerous types of added security which are incredibly tricky to replicate effectively. Tilt your card in the light and you can see sev..

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 gu..
The ID Card Centre Office ExpansionDue to the rapid expansion of our team and the increasing levels of business we found ourselves with an urgent need for more space, so rather than uproot and move, we embarked on a loft conversion! We now have a whole floor dedicated to our card production bureau, a much bigger stock room as well as additional space in the main office.This has enabled us to expand our bureau offering and add new equipment to our portfolio including the Evolis Avansia, as well as hold more stock to ensure we not only continue to fulfil our orders for next working day delivery ..

What is a card printing bureau?
The ID Card Centre bureau is a service that we offer to manage the printing and encoding of ID cards, access control cards, technology cards and name badges on behalf of companies, organisations and individuals. There are many reasons for needing to use a bureau service such as not owning the correct printing and encoding equipment or not having the time or man power to handle the job in house.
There is no job too big or small for the bureau to cope with – we regularly handle print jobs of single cards up to thousands of cards.
rewritevb (tr)1. to write (written material) again, esp changing the words or formRewrite, re-write or re write? However you spell it, it still does exactly what it says – it allows you to rewrite a previously printed ID card or name badge.How does rewrite work?The revolutionary rewrite technology doesn’t require any fancy inks or ribbons, but simply uses heat to change the colour of the surface of the card, thus printing any text and images (in monochrome only) – including photographs - on to the surface of the card. Reapplication of heat will then remove the ‘printing’ leaving the card blank..
ID Card printing so easy you can do it anywhere!
Ben is out on the road at demos and installations a lot this week and found he’d run out of business cards. Not to worry, equipped with an IDP Smart 50S printer and a power inverter – he was able to print some more business cards, between meetings, in his car!
