Can Cardaxis create my ID card design?

Yes, we create completely custom ID card designs based on your business logo and colour scheme.

Your design can be matched to the look of your website and business stationery for complete consistency across your brand, too.
When you choose our design service, you'll be guaranteed a properly aligned and well co-ordinated design that result in perfectly printed ID cards every time, saving you the worry and cost of your own designs not printing correctly. You always receive samples of your design for approval before it is used for printing.

Is there a minimum order?

We print ID cards with no minimum order quantity. Some of our badge holders and lanyards can be purchased with no minimum order, too. Save money when you buy more at a time with our quantity-based discounts. The price per card, badge holder and lanyard becomes lower as the number you order goes up.

Can you save my design for next time?

Yes, your designs are saved so we can use them to personalise and print more ID cards for you in future. When you need more ID cards, simply send us the names, job titles and photos of each person who needs a card and we'll personalise and print them using your saved artwork.

Can I see samples of my ID card design?

Yes, you'll receive PDF proofs of the ID card design we create for you. You can request changes to your design until you're completely happy with the way it looks. When you're happy with the PDF proof, we can send you a printed sample for final approval. We also offer free sample packs which contain sample cards printed with non-customised designs. Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like us to send you a sample pack today.

What size and material are the ID cards?

Our standard ID cards are made from high quality PVC (100% recycled), and are the same size and thickness as a bank card.

Size: 85.6 x 54.98 mm
Thickness: 0.76 mm
Radius: 3.18 mm

The cards are bright white with a clean, glossy finish. Each is printed in full colour as standard across the entire surface of the card (full-bleed / over-the-edge).

Are the ID cards personalised for each person?

Yes, all ID cards are personalised with individual names, job titles, photos and more.

For example: If you have 15 staff who need ID cards, simply order 15 ID cards online then send us their names, job titles and labelled photographs.
We'll then use this data to personalise and print their cards using a design we create for you, or your own design that you send to us.
