The size of a standard CR80 PVC card is 3.370″ wide, 2.125″ long (85.60mm x 53.98mm) and .030” thick (0.762mm).
Standard ID cards are often referred to as being “credit card size”. Understandable, as they are the same dimensions as standard credit cards and most drivers’ licenses, which you might carry in your purse or wallet. They’re so popular, and use is so widespread, because these small cards can easily fit into small places, yet are able to withstand fairly rough conditions.
The card’s size makes it an ideal choice for student ID cards, employee badges, police badges, credit cards and driver’s licenses. The cards are often worn with a badge clip or lanyard if they need to be displayed. Badge reels and other attachments add function when displayed cards are also used for access control, and other frequent-use activities.
