You weighed the pros and cons of a lot of different ID printer options available and you picked a model that really fits your needs. Your ID printer can make double sided cards, it can laminate, it can print quickly and, heck, it can even make a chicken pot pie (okay, I made that last one up, an ID printer can’t do that). Now you are ready to design your ID card, at least you think so.

You sit down at your desk with your leftover chicken pot pie, take a big bite and get ready to work (WRONG! Didn’t you read the blog entry from August 15?! You never work with an ID printer while you eat. The grease and the grime will destroy your ID printer. Okay, let’s start over). You sit down at your clean and clear desk and get ready to work. There is just one problem – how are you going to design your ID card?

You can create an ID card using a Windows based program, such as Photoshop or Word. However, if you use an actual ID card program you can streamline the process and save yourself a lot of time in the long run. The most popular ID card software brands are Jolly, Asure ID and CardStudio. Each is very effective, but they have a different look and feel. We would strongly encourage you to download a demo version to get a feel for each. You might prefer one brand over another.

Please give us a call at (317) 488-1030 and we can help you find the right fit for you. We will even share our chicken pot pie recipe, although we make no guarantees that it is any good.
