Arcadia Synthetic Paper
Arcadia synthetic paper is paper that is perfect for creating ID badges.
If you have ever been to a gym or visited a small business, then you will likely have been given an ID card made from synthetic paper to use. These ID cards are roughly the size of a debit or credit card, except they have a thick transparent plastic wrapping around them. They don’t bend easily but also aren’t quite as thick as card.
These ID cards are popular because they provide an affordable and easy way to create professional looking badges. These badges can then be used to control access to the company’s premises and at the same time to make it appear more professional and organized – it creates a good impression on visitors and makes it easier for them to manage their security and to streamline the experience for guests.
With Arcadia synthetic paper, it is very easy for you to create these cards yourself. Read on to see how…
What is Arcadia Synthetic Paper?
Arcadia synthetic paper is essentially a type of paper that is very resilient and which can stand up to water damage and wear and tear without looking battered and dog eared. The ink will never run and as such the card will stay legible for a long time. What’s more, this also means that your logo isn’t going to become deteriorated thus ensuring that the cards reflect well on your business and make a good impression rather than a bad one.
There are more benefits to using this paper too. For starters, Arcadia synthetic paper makes it easy for you to create your ID cards thanks to ‘punchouts’ that are the exact size and shape you need for ID cards and which can easily be removed from the sheet. What’s more, the paper is very white and crisp and results in a high definition image that looks professional.
Using Arcadia Synthetic Paper
So how do you use this paper to create your IDs?
First you need a design, which you can get with specific software or which you can create yourself with more general design software. From here, you will then add the individual details of everyone you will hand cards out to.
Next, you need to print the paper. You can do this using a laser or inkjet printer but you have to make sure the paper you ordered was designed for that printer.
Then you want to laminate the paper in order to give it a more high quality feel. You can do this using butterfly pouches which are designed to be used with laminators. These will seal the cards entirely.
There are other extras you can use too. Punch holes in the cards first for instance if you want to carry them on a lanyard and consider using holographic overlays if you want to increase security further. You can also use magnetic strips, UV images and more.
