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.

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
