Design Your Photo ID 

If you don't yet have a design for your photo's ID cards, there's no need to worry!  ID Creator is a free, online ID card design tool with thousands of designs that you can quickly modify to fit your needs. You can even insert scannable barcodes onto your cards. This will ensure a quality and effective ID Card solution for your photo safety. 

Printing your Photo ID Card

Print the photo id  cards onto a synthetic paper such as Artisyn paper or Teslin Sheet.  These special sheets are made out of a micro porous plastic that absorbs ink into its millions of pocket holes. It traps the ink in place, so that when it is laminated it can bind with a butterfly pouch and make a photo ID card that resembles flawlessly the look and feel of a standard  PVC card (just like the cards in your wallet). These sheets are available either as a full sheet, or microperforated with 8 ID card-sized punchouts on each sheet.. This enables your photo to have a quality and professional photo ID card which everyone loves.

Laminating your photo  ID Card

Laminate the printed photo ID punchout inside of a butterfly laminating pouch. A butterfly pouch is a single piece of premium-plastic that has been scored long-ways down the middle so it can fold together or lay open and flat. Traditional laminated cards required a border of laminating film in order to secure the paper to the laminate.  However, using these special butterfly pouches creates a borderless photo ID card that is firm, waterproof, and durable. This ensures that your photo will not damage or ruin your much awaited ID card.

Securing your photo  ID Card

Secure your photo ID cards with added protection by using ID hologram overlays. Hologram overlays are transparent stickers that can be manually applied on top of your laminated ID cards. They peel off a paper backing and go on in seconds. They are just slightly smaller than the size of an photo ID card, allowing you to have a slight margin of error when applying. 

Encoding your photo  ID Card

Encode the cards to work with your existing hardware such as time-clocks and building-access machines which could come in handy for places like the boy and girls clubs.  Butterfly laminating pouches are available with magnetic stripes already embedded into them.  These pouches once used in accordance with our id card laminator creates cards that instantly are encodable with magnetic stripe encoder machines such as the EasyIDea™ Magnetic Stripe.
