What’s on Your ID Badge?

When creating your identification badges, you have to know both what to include and what not to include on the identification card itself. Not all information is necessary. Excess details can clutter ID cards, and distract from the important data. Only required materials should be present on identification cards and badges. At Automated Card Systems Inc, our skilled professionals have mastered this card making process and are ready to help your institution create secure, flawless ID’s that you can trust in.

-Disclaimer and Distributing Institution’s Information

Though ID cards and badges are for the cardholder’s identification and access-granting purposes, the card instilling institution should also have a presence on the card. The company, organization or another entity type should include its logo, name, disclaimer, contact and property information, and seal.

-Cardholder’s ID and Related Information

As far as the cardholder’s information goes, general and detailed information is needed. General info such as the cardholder’s name, photo and title (such as student, staff, etc…) should be included. Additional details of necessity include security access level, ID number, cardholder responsibilities, and any other information that the card-issuing institution considers to be essential.

-The Needed Miscellaneous Data

Other than incorporating the information of cardholders and their institutions, there is miscellaneous data that should also be included on ID cards and badges. Barcodes, seals, issue and expiration dates, information on how to return and replace lost or damaged ID cards, and other required information dealing with the card itself.
