printing plastic ID badges for employee

Plastic employee ID badges

Laminated, personalized, and secured with a special print or hologram. They may also have holes, space for a signature, an unusual shape and size, and if necessary, they can also be equipped with radio proximity modules. We print plastic employee ID badges. They enable the identification of an employee on the premises of the company or institution where the time and access control system have been installed.

Employee badges are most often found in manufacturing companies, schools, offices, hospitals, power plants. The employee badge allows, among other things:

  • registration of employee’s working time,
  • convenient and secure access to the restricted areas,
  • ability to temporarily block or remove the card from the system.,
  • ability to encode information multiple times or assign a new employee to an existing card,
  • personalized appearance of the employee card (photo, name and surname, card number),

Employee badges – essential elements

In order for an employee ID badge to carry information and work with an access and time control system, it must be equipped with at least one of the following:

  • LoCo or HiCo magnetic strip – this is one of the cheapest available methods of saving information on the card.
  • RFID proximity module – Unique, Mifare or other. The proximity module is a chip with an antenna placed inside a laminated card. This module enables the exchange of information stored on it with the system’s readers, so it must be selected appropriately to your system.
  • barcode or QR code. A barcode is the easiest way to save information on an ID badge. The information is encoded in the form of black lines of various thicknesses, which are then read using a barcode scanner/reader.

Personalization of badges

In addition to the built-in proximity module, magnetic stripe or barcode/QR code, personal data needed for visual identification are also printed on employee ID badges. Therefore, the following can be printed on the ID: name and surname, position, number and photo.

Plastic badges printing options

Proximity modules and CMYK printing ensure that badges are functional and professional-looking. However, badges usually need to have distinctive elements applied to them:

  • holes, necessary to hang the badges on a lanyard or straps
  • signature bar – an additional method for personalising identifiers.
  • Security features such as holograms or UV / IR printing.
