Add removable customization to your technology cards
Tech cards, like smart cards and proximity cards, are a great way to add some functionality to an ID badge program.
However, with that increased functionality come increased replacement costs: tech cards often cost a couple of bucks, while a standard PVC card costs under 50 cents.
So how do you offer custom tech cards without the hit in the wallet?
Stickyback cards are adhesive-backed PVC cards that are about half the thickness of standard PVC cards. These unique solutions are customized using a standard PVC ID card printer and are meant to be applied to a more expensive tech credential.
Stickyback cards help save your organization money: if you issue smart cards to your employees and one leaves the company, you don't have to toss his or her card in the trash. Simply remove the stickyback and apply a new one for your new employee!
The idea behind a stickyback card is that the custom portion, like a user's photo, name, title and the company's logo, are applied to this cheaper, removable part of the ID card. The stickyback is then applied to a blank tech credential, allowing the tech credential to be reused down the line by a different employee.
Instead of tossing cards when there's employee turnover, you can reuse them!
- Although they're very thin, stickyback cards are still made of PVC and are meant to be customized in a PVC ID card printer.
- This stickyback card measures 2.13" x 3.38", also known as CR80 or credit card size.
- Because it's a CR80-sized card, this stickyback is meant to be paired with a CR80-sized tech card.
- This stickyback is 14-mils thick, nearly half the thickness of a standard PVC card.
Creating custom tech ID cards is easy with stickybacks!
- Print your ID on a stickyback using a PVC printer.
- Remove the paper liner from the back of the stickyback.
- Adhere the stickyback to your tech credential.
