3 Ways Our JetPak™ ID Cards Go Above & Beyond PVC Cards

Posted by Dan Ryan on Nov 1, 2017 1:00:00 PM

PVC has long been the standard material for ID cards across a number of industries. And while PVC makes a fine ID card, it's become more of a fall-back option: "We've ordered PVC cards for years...might as well stick with it."

But why stick with the same ol' solution when there's a better solution out there?

That solution is JetPak ID cards, our alternative to PVC cards that beats the old standard in just about every possible way.

To the untrained eye, a JetPak card might look and feel the exact same as a PVC ID card. After all, a card is a card, right? You just print some stuff on it, maybe laminate it, then go on your way.

Wrong! The JetPak card offers a number of features that leave the standard PVC card in the dust, making it the card of choice for dozens of federal government agencies, police departments, county sheriffs, corporate entities and more.

How Can You Make Your ID Cards Last Longer?

Posted by Dan Ryan on Oct 5, 2017 11:00:00 AM

It's a fact of life when it comes to objects or material possessions: sooner or later, things are going to get worn out.

From cars to computers, sneakers to speakers, all things break down after a while, especially with regular use.

Identification cards are no exception to this rule.

Think about how much wear-and-tear the average employee ID badge or student ID card is going to endure on a regular basis: ID cards are taken in and out of pockets, tapped against card readers, swiped through machines and more.

All of this activity leads to a pretty logical conclusion: you're going to have to replace your identification cards at some point.

Much like your other possessions, however, the goal is to make your ID card last as long as possible. Cars last longer with regular oil changes, computers last longer with regular virus scans and file clean-up. 

Fortunately, there are a few different ways you can help your ID cards and badges last longer — and they don't require having a good mechanic on standby.

You don't have to resign yourself to frequent replacement cards

3 Reasons to Choose Custom-Shaped ID Cards

Posted by Dan Ryan on Jun 2, 2017 2:00:00 PM

Let's be honest: there aren't a lot of secrets about ID cards.

While there are a number of concepts in the identification industry that are a bit mysterious to the average person, the concept of credentials isn't one of them.

Most people are pretty familiar with the basics: they know what an ID card does, what the different kinds of ID cards are (student ID cards, employee badges, etc.) and what functions cards are able to perform.

In most cases, knowing the basics is enough. It'll help you have a decent idea of what you need, and you'll be able to fill in the rest as you go.

However, in the case of ID cards, we've found that there's something fairly basic that many people don't know: you can get custom-shaped ID cards!

Yes, employee badges, student credentials and more can be ordered in shapes other than the rounded-edge rectangles most people picture when they think about ID cards. 

In fact, ID cards can be round, triangular or even shaped like a giant tooth — whatever your imagination can think up!

Rectangles are out — shapes are in!
