As the title suggests ID card printers are used to print ID cards for employees in all organizations and institutions. Why are ID cards needed? Data released by law enforcement agencies indicate that crimes of impersonation and fake identities are on the rise because of lack of proper ID issuing facilities at many business offices. ID cards prove the identity of every person present in the premises of the organization and in today’s world where security is the top most priority, ID cards and ID card printers play their important role in keeping a log of every individual entering and exiting an organization’s premises.
ID cards are essential, especially for both employees and visitors to the business organization. Employee ID cards can be identified by their name and designation. This helps in knowing who is who and if a new employee needs help regarding any matter, by glancing at the ID card he can easily find the relevant person who can answer his query or solve his problem. Visitors are also identified by this process and they can be guided towards their destination by the employees of the business organization.
Another important aspect of having ID card printers in any business organization is that the ID cards that are printed can also serve as maintaining the attendance of the employees, including their times of entering work and finishing work. This ensures transparency because then there will be no need to manually note down the attendance of each and every employee. In this way a process has been automated by simply using the ID card machine.
Depending on the size of the organization and its level of security there are two types of ID card printing machines, the plastic ID card printer and the ID badge printer. When deciding to buy an ID card printer for your office, do a lot of research. First and foremost ask yourself what you want your printer to print and how often it will print ID cards. Many ID card machine manufacturers include the option of custom printing on ID card printers, like the company’s logo, watermark, date of expiry, etc. Plastic ID card printers can print at 300 DPI for clarity and detail which is essential for any ID card. These printers also have the option to print on one side for just printing the person’s photo, name, designation, etc and double-sided printing for printing person’s identification information as well bar codes. ID badge printers, best suited for seminars, events, conferences where speedy issuance of ID cards is a must and which help participants in socializing as the ID cards help in identifying people who may have met someplace before or can even be ice-breakers and conversation starters.
Plastic ID card printers and ID badge printers both can be used at different levels of security and its importance cannot be underestimated in keeping a tab on every individual present in the organization or in conventions, official company events and ceremonies.
