How many ID cards do you need to print?

Whether you are a small, medium or large business, deciding how many ID cards you need for your staff can be a tricky decision to make.

Do you need a printed ID card for every staff member? Do some employees work offsite where identification is mandatory? Is your MD so well known that everybody knows his face anyway!

Here at ID Cards & Accessories we have you covered! Once you know how many ID cards you want, you can choose the ID card printer that suits your requirements. Not sure which printer you need? Don’t worry, our in-house printing team are on hand to help.

If you are a small to medium sized business and need about 100-1000 printed ID cards, browse through our medium volume ID card printers for single sided printed ID cards, or both back and front sided printed ID cards.

If you are a business with a need for more than 1000 printed ID cards, you will probably want to look through our range of higher volume ID card printers for single sided printed ID cards and also printers that print on both sides. These printers print about 1000-3000 plastic ID cards comfortably.

Choosing the right holders for your ID cards

Once you have your ID cards printed and looking exactly the way you want them, you will want to keep them protected, secure and visibly on show.

Think about what your ID cards are going to be used for. Where are your cards going to be used? Who are the cards for? You will soon have a summary or an understanding of what card holder is right for you.

If your ID cards need to be visible at all times e.g. bar or security staff, you may want to consider our arm band card holders
