A clever and fun way to celebrate your child’s birthday, bar mitzvah or other occasion is with custom ID cards. One of the more popular trends with kids now is spy or secret agent themed parties. A great accessory for these parties is the secret agent ID card. If you want to jazz up your kid’s party with customized cards, there are a number of options to consider to get the most for your money.
First off, what kind of content do you want on your cards? Sites like Etsy and Pinterest offer a number of options for creating spy-themed ID cards. Usually, these are downloadable PDFs that allow you to enter your child’s name, age and other data. However, there are some things you usually can’t do, such as insert digital images (pictures) into these simple templates. There are other things to consider, also, such as using your own printer, ink, and paper, and after printing out the card, you usually need to cut out the card, and purchase badge holders to place the cutout into. These are the most simple type of cards and an option if you don’t mind the effort and using your own supplies. However, remember that these cards offer very few customizable options: the only things you enter are name, date, etc., and if you want your child’s picture, you’ll have to print photos and paste them in. Also, you are limited to the templates offered.
Another option is cards that are completely customizable, printed on sturdy plastic by an ID card service company like Digicard Services. With custom ID cards, you provide DigicardServices.com with any images, backgrounds, colors, or fonts you want to use on the card, and we make and print the cards using our ID card printers. This means you can create custom cards for each guest, with their photo, name, and anything else you want on the card. The benefit here is all you need to provide is the photos and names, and Digicard Services will work with you to create whatever type of card you want. We print the finished cards here and ship to you, at a price extremely competitive with the PDF templates, and you don’t have to use your own printer, ink or paper. Simply put the finished card in a badge holder and lanyard and you’re done. Digicard Services’ Professional Staff can match any color you want, and use custom backgrounds and designs to make your cards completely personalized. ID card printers create high-definition images on a sturdy PVC cards that are the same size and thickness as a credit card.
So before choosing an option for your special event, make sure you understand your options. PDF templates allow you to edit a number of fields, such as name and age, and require your time and effort. Digicard Services’ custom ID card printing provides many options that templates don’t, such as embedded pictures and other digital art, and are printed by thick PVC cards by the ID card service company. Hope this helps and have a great party!
