While navigating through process of designing and purchasing ID cards for your organizations, it’s easy to allow the majority of your attention to land on the front side of the card. Though the front is most visible and likely most crucial, it’s important to consider the information that you would like to have on the backside of your card. Here are some tips for ways you can format the back of your card.
Lost ID Card Information – If you don’t have any necessary information that you need on the back of your card, lost card information is a great idea. If your employee loses their card, it will provide information about who to contact, in addition to what steps to take in order to get the card back into the right hands.
Simplification – Keeping your ID card design clean and clutter free is important. So, if you have a lot of information that you need to implement into your design, utilizing the back of your card is a great way to clean things up. Keep the essential information on the front and put the rest on the back!
Legal Disclaimers are a perfect example of this. Of course, this type of content is way too wordy for the front of an ID card so placing it on the back is the way to go.
Duplication – Some organizations do not have a need for a lot of information on their cards and have opted to print the front template on both sides. This is great for those who do not use badge sleeves. Sometimes the card can get flipped over and this method will allow your card information to be visible at all times.
