Barcodes are one of the most convenient and affordable methods for printing encoded information onto ID badges. Though there are some limitations with how much information can be contained, it’s a really effective way to covertly print account numbers, or personal ID numbers without displaying them directly on the badge. Since they are printed onto the card, they can also be used in conjunction with other technologies such as proximity and magnetic strip ID badges.
What are the Benefits of Barcodes on ID Badges?
Much like other card technologies, the barcodes really streamline identification processes. When used with the appropriate barcode reader, you’re able to eliminate human error, speed up check ins and authentication and significantly increase accuracy.
Printing Different Barcode Varieties
Another great thing about barcodes is that any ID badge printer will be able to print a barcode. The only thing you would need is a software or service that could generate a barcode for you. In our ID Card Wizard on our website, you would just upload the barcode as an image onto the ID badge template it would get printed just like any other image on your badge. It’s very simple and effective. There are different types of barcodes ranging from UPC, QR codes and more! All of which are just as easily uploaded and printed on your ID badges. Of course each barcode has a slightly different use and the type that you choose simply depends on the needed application and data storage needs. Regardless of your application, barcodes are a fantastic way to increase your ID security, affordably.
