How to design your ID badge?

ID CardsIf you are just getting started with a badge program at your organization OR updating your program, here are a few thoughts to keep in mind as you design our ID badge to ensure it provides the right security, information and image for your organization.

Today’s card design software comes in many editions with varying levels of complexity but all IDs share some basic elements.

  • Orientation: VERTICAL is very common, especially if hanging on a lanyard but HORIZONTAL is great especially with long names/titles of those badged. You may also consider using VERTICAL for staff and HORIZONTAL for contractors or visitors. This provides a visual security cue for your organization.
  • Do you need to allow for a punch at the top to hang from a badge reel or lanyard? Will the card be placed inside a badge holder, thus not requiring a slot or hole punch? This will be important for your layout.
  • Do you need information on both the front and the back? Should both the front and back be the same (to account for IDs flipping around) or do you prefer to have static data on the back such as phone numbers and security information?

Once you have those basic questions answered, you can get to the design elements:

  • Do you want your logo with standard corporate/organization colors and fonts?
  • For specific badges, will you include a photo? If so, make sure you have photos of similar size and with similar lighting to make your cards look consistent.
  • Will you include employee name (first and/ last) or just initials? Are titles and departments needed? What about expiration dates or dates of hire? Also consider noting if employees are allowed be about your building unescorted? Color bars can help provide that information to others.

Whatever your ID, ASAP Identification Security can help. We not only sell card design software, but we can help you design or adjust your design, as well.

Just call (317-488-1030) or email (info@asapident.com) and we will be more than happy to help.

CardPresso – Easy to use, easy to upgrade

cardpressoCardPresso ID software is a versatile and easy-to-use and easy to upgrade solution.

Easy to use: The cardPresso software can be installed on multiple PCs and you simply move the USB pen (1 pen per license) between those PCs to run the application. This allows multiple users to have access to the software, thus allowing workload to shift from one PC user to another. The PCs without the pen can run the software in DEMO mode but will need the pen to run fully.

Easy to upgrade: Entry level XXS is affordable (@ $75) and full of great features for a basic software. As the needs of your organization change, so do the offerings. There are 5 editions of cardPresso available and upgrades are managed easily and seamlessly through your software license key.

The cardPresso suite of software solutions ranges from simple to robust and can certainly meet the requirements of your organization.

Call (317-488-1030) or email ASAP Identification (info@asapident.com) to learn more about the cardPresso solution.

QR Codes: the high-tech, low-cost Smart ID Card solution

Screen shot 2014-03-06 at 1.24.46 PM copyConfirming someone’s identity before giving them access to facilities or work sites is crucial for your security. In the past, most organizations used passive photo ID cards to prove identity. Now a days, Smart ID Cards are being used within organizations to improve security and reduce the risk of fraud. These new systems can be expensive and cumbersome to maintain.

Enter the Quick Response Code. This QR code is a 2 dimensional black and white barcode that provides a high-tech but low-cost method of meeting security requirements. They are quite popular due to the fast readability and data storage capacity as compared to standard UPC barcodes. They are not only used for store displays and websites but are also printed on business cards and IDs.

These little codes store promotions, Internet links as well as personal contact information and numbers to be used for everything from promotional and branding efforts to more traditional ID security on photo IDs. Both Jolly ID Flow and Evolis eMedia have the ability to support QR codes. Use these codes for time and attendance, contact information and marketing material.

Jolly Tech Troubleshooting

If you are experiencing a problem with your installation of Jolly software, review the following solutions to see if they may resolve your issue.

License Key / Registration
If you are prompted to enter your license key every time you start Jolly software, your logon user account most likely does not have sufficient privileges. Try the following: Log in as Administrator, run the Jolly software again, then enter the license key. You should no longer be prompted for the key, regardless of what user you log in as.

Transferring software to new PC
In order to move your license from 1 PC to another, back up your templates and data. Then uninstall ID Flow from Jolly/Help/Activation and follow the prompts.

DO NOT UNINSTALL via Windows/Uninstall Program. You need to use ID Flow in order to get the required Hardware ID & Deactivation Code.

Once uninstalled, you can reinstall by right clicking on the file and running as administrator.
