I still remember the first time I looked at my teacher wearing an ID card, I felt so fascinated about them! The different outlook and unique pattern presented a professional look. That was some ten-year-old back story, it remained interesting for that was the first time we were seeing to the ID cards. The time when it came into existence, it proved it’s worth in every sense. The security statistics proved successful development. As the ID card system became successful the manufacturing companies accepted the boon. With time the pattern of cards, color, format, use got updated. Every ID card varied in thickness, material, and sizes.
Let us go through nine types of ID card printing:
Composite ID cards
These cards are also the simple kind of articles in which you do not need to install any embedded system, chip or control access. The material is a composition of two elements: PET and PVC. Where both substances are in an exact composition of forty and sixty percent. Some suppliers though sometimes supply the material in the composition of both substances in one is to one ratio.
There are few ID cards where you have your names and other specifications filled manually and the complete details can be filled later providing the flexibility of time and efforts. These kinds of ID cards are usually used in the companies with deal with new employs and trainees almost on a daily basis.
Proximity ID cards
These kinds of cards have the information which can only be read and cannot be edited, once is taken out. If the updates and corrections are to be made, he has to get the new ID card printed out. The cards can be read through any possible card reader available.
School ID card
These cards are the cheaper form of PVC cards. The ID cards have the frames and case embedded inside. The ID card’s information has to be updated every year for the new students and thus have a seasonal requirement every year.
Visitor access card
This kind of card is formed just for the visitor who appears occasionally. The printing is in a standard format on a plain paper with a tag of ‘Visitor’.
These cards are the type which is a great initiative taken by Go Green MNCs. The cards can be decomposed with a surety of safe environment.
Over Laminated Cards
When the PVC material card is laminated, they become bearable to tears by the thickness of lamination plastic. The lamination has a glossy and matte layer.
100% PVC card
The 100% PVC card is made up of PVC material as the name suggests. The card is the simplest kind, where no embedded system is installed nor any access control is given. These are of a standard size 84*56 mm as one type and the other type 56*84 mm. The choice remains with you if you want to get the Icard in the portrait mode or landscape one.
