Plastic ID cards are used for many different purposes - everything from providing a means of confirming employee identity to ensuring access control mechanisms to enhance the security for your buildings.

We can assist in the layout of your chosen design or will design a basic layout for your approval. All design work and proofs are provided via email.

Style and Format

Size - Most designs are printed onto standard-sized cards of 86mm X 54mm (credit card size) however other sizes are available for specialised uses.

Colour - ID cards come in a variety of base colours onto which your own artwork, photographs, barcodes and security overlays can be printed.

Handling - A self-adhesive padded pin can be utilised for easy attachment to clothing - especially useful for corporate events as well as everyday office use.


For added security and to ensure a professional finish for your plastic cards, we use the newest security features.

Guilloche & Fine Line - Based around the concept of using highly defined print lines to create complex designs that are extremely difficult to originate and print.

Micro Print - Viewable under magnification, Micro Print can be incorporated into the card and cannot be duplicated by dye sublimation, inkjet or laser printers.

UV Print - UV ink technology allows the printing of images which are only visible when viewed under ultra-violet light. A good covert technology used in passports and banknotes for many years.

Secure Overlay Laminates - A protective overlay with a built-in pattern.
