Recently, we have had customers request printed custom ID cards that contain QR codes. This is becoming a popular way for various tracking. The codes are commonly placed in store windows, on restaurant menus and on websites to encourage customers to download specials and organizational information. They can also be used for time and attendance, access control and more. Most smart phones have application software that will allow the QR code to be read, analyzed and information transmitted that can speed up many business processes.
The ID card software we recommend for QR code printing is the Jolly ID Flow software. This badge design software has been recently upgraded and currently provides a platform for creating and printing QR codes that will print to the custom card.

Needing id badges for your group or organization? Badges in the current market are made on a smooth finish PVC card. The cards are printed on specialized printers that usually print direct to card. The cards are 30 mil and are the same size as a standard credit card or driver’s license. The process to have id badges made is fairly simple. By answering a few questions about what is needed, an id card service company can design and make your cards hassle free.
One of the easiest questions to answer is what the purpose(s) of the badge is. Some badges are made for identification purposes. An example of this card may be a loyalty card that a retail organization would supply to returning customers. Other badges may authorize someone to enter a restricted area such as authorization for backstage at a concert. Some cards are multi purpose cards and provide an id as well as service more complex requirements such as door access or to debit an account. Larger corporations and higher educational facilities often incorporate a number of functions into their id card.
Once the service company is aware of the card purpose, the id card company will need to begin collecting information and needed items to begin the badge design process. The badge design will need to incorporate items required on the badge. Some of these may be the organizational logo, what types of text or bar codes are needed, if a picture is needed and other specific requirements.
When the id card design is finished and approved, specific card holder information and photos are imported into the badge design for individual card production.
