Custom Badges

Card Services can create specialized badges that can be used to identify a department's staff members, conference attendees, participants in fieldwork and/or members of a special event. We can design the card, take the photo and deliver all the features you need.

Basic Badges are perfect for conferences, event staff and general ID use. Add a magnetic stripe on the back and/or a RFID (Radio Frequency ID) chip on the inside, and suddenly you’ve got a Smart Badge, with enhanced functionality:

  • Access Control
  • Contactless Keys
  • Payment Card
  • Employee Time Management
  • Security Clearance

There is a one-time $75 charge for artwork set-up and a per-badge starting at just $5. We can also help you rent or purchase magstripe readers that can be customized to suit your needs.
