Artwork and Database Set Up

For complete ease and peace of mind, we recommend using our artwork and database set up service.  For a small charge of £30 we will create your artwork to your specification, including merging in any data required such as names and photos.  You will receive an artwork proof for you to sign off before we go ahead with the print so you can be 100% sure that you are happy with the design.

The fee allows for up to 3 changes and additional changes are charged at just £5.

If required, we can also hold your design on file for any future orders meaning you won't need to pay the artwork fee next time.

We will also assist you with setting up your database and will import it into your design before printing.

To add our artwork service to your order please select the option on the right.

Providing Your Own Artwork

Please note that if you are providing your own artwork:

  • We will print your artwork as supplied so please ensure you've read our artwork guidelines, and pay particular attention to required bleed areas.  
  • Please also read our article on 'How to get the best quality print for your ID Cards'.
  • If you are supplying data for us to print on the cards then by placing the order you are confirming that you are authorised to share this data with us, on behalf of the data subject, for the purposes of printing the card.
  • Since all computer monitors and devices display colour differently, we cannot guarantee print colours will match colours viewed on screen or when printed. For these reasons, we do not accept returns based on colour.

We recommend adding the 'Photo Artwork Proof' to your order.  We will print your design, as you have supplied it, onto a card and send you a photo so that you can check you're happy with the positioning, print quality and colours, before we fufil your full order.  

Important Information

At ID Card Centre we take identity theft and fraud extremely seriously.  Therefore please note that we will not print any form of fake ID, this includes but is not limited to driving licenses, proof of age cards, student IDs, backstage passes or membership cards.  If we have any suspicions regarding the nature of your order, please do not be offended if we contact you for proof of authenticity.  We also reserve the right to cancel and refund your order, subject to an administration fee.

About Printed Cards

Our high-quality cards are printed on premium white PVC Fotodek cards to ensure a superior print finish and longer lasting cards.  All of our cards have a lifespan of at least 3 years but typically last longer than this.  If you require a much longer lasting card let us know so we can recommend suitable print and lamination options.

Your ID cards can feature any design and data that you wish.  You may choose to design the cards yourself (in which case please read our guidelines) or alternatively, our bureau team can design them for you and will work closely with you to achieve the perfect layout. 

If you're looking for something a little different, we have a range of coloured card options however these are not always suitable for printing photos and certain logos on to so if you're hoping for a vibrant, full-colour card we can talk you through various options and solutions.  Please contact us to discuss.

If you need your ID cards to be smart cards we can provide contactless, chip and magnetic stripe cards that are compatible with most systems, in particular, MIFARE®, Paxton, HID, Cotag, Indala, Keri, ACT, PAC, TDSi and Guardall.  Again, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

We can incorporate security features into your ID card design including guilloche, UV, micro text, holofoil or hologram, embossing and tipping as well as signature panels (with additional anti-forgery techniques built into that if required). Finally, if you need braille embossed into your cards we can offer this as well!

Finally, we can do as much or as little of the printing as you want.  We can print and encode everything for you, including MIFARE® chip serial number (CSN) capture and sector encoding/encryption and can supply this information back to you for integration into your own systems.  Alternatively, you may wish for us to just print part of the card for you so that you can personalise it in-house as and when needed. 

As our name would suggest, at ID Card Centre we are experts in ID Cards so rest assured that we will quote you for the best products to suit your requirements and budget, now and in the future.
