Case Study: Casino Players Club Cards

Casinos are well known for having membership cards and Casinos in California are no different. Many casinos, including those in Southern California and Las Vegas, use AdvantIDge for all of their card printing needs for a complete membership ID solution. It’s quite common to see casinos using a complete card system consisting of two card printers and colorful magnetic stripe cards to produce hundreds, if not thousands, of membership cards to place into their guests hands. One Southern California in particular first started with three Zebra p330i printers from IDSupershop to kick off their card printing. After years of excellent printing, they traded in their printers to us for credit towards the upgraded Zebra ZXP 3 printer to produce even more beautiful players cards by the thousands. If you’ve been to a casino lately, you may have noticed that casinos pass out eye-catching membership cards to their players which are often shiny, jewel colored, or sparkly. These are magnetic stripe cards in silver, gold, platinum (and more!) colored cards to represent each tier of their membership program. Printing only in black ribbon contrasts boldly against these brightly colored cards, which is the recommended ribbon color for printing on colored cards. IDSupershop offers a wide variety of all of the ID card printer systems, or other visitor management devices, to fill any of … Continue reading

Two Factor Authentication Innovation with 2FA

IDSupershop would like to tell you about an exciting new method for access protection being offered by our partners over at 2FA. Their new integration software, called 2FA ONE SSO is a great new option for taking advantage of all of the security that a two factor authentication system can add to your system while keeping implementation as integration simple and painless.

Making Great Looking Cards; Artwork Specs

The first thing that you should be considering the layout and contents of an identification card is the level of security that your card needs to contain. It might be visual elements, like photos or bar codes, or it might be digital information, like the data in a magnetic stripe or a RFID chip. Making sure these elements are correct and in place is paramount. After that, though, you might also want your card to look good. The static visual elements on your card, things like your company logo, or perhaps some kind of a background image, are a great opportunity for your organization to present itself in a professional and visually appealing way. Simply because the purpose of a card might be security concerns, there is no reason that it can’t also look good to anyone wearing them, or perhaps more importantly, to anyone not associated with your organization who might be visiting, or seeing who you are and who you represent, for the first time. Though it is possible to use virtually any layout program to design a card, most users are going to find that using a card issuance program is going to make their ID badge … Continue reading

IDSupershop is happy to announce that their partner, Evolis, has completed development of a new driver for their current line of printers. A printer driver is a software interface used by an operating system to control a specific printer. The Evolis printers are managed by a software suite (driver and software) called Evolis Premium Suite or Badgy Premium Suite for the Microsoft Windows Operating System. To meet the needs of improvements, Evolis has a policy of continuous development on its software suite. This has been particularly true since Microsoft’s release of the Windows 10 version of the operating system, and the badge printer industry’s need to meet demand. As part of its continuous improvement policy, Evolis has developed new software suite for the following printers: Zenius Primacy Elypso Badgy 100 & Badgy 200 Zenius, Primacy and Elypso Printers have a common driver (Evolis Premium Suite).

In addition to the setup files, Evolis publishes a history file which includes all details about the latest version. Evolis recommends you to update … Continue reading

Best ID Software for Use on Mac

Previously we here at AdvantIDge shared with you our observations on what ID printer works best when you want to integrate your system on a Mac. The printer itself isn’t going to be the complete solution for most folks, though. Unless you happen to be printing a single image on a card, and it happens to be already set up to be the right print size for your cards, chances are you are going to need to take a look at card design software to go hand in hand with that new ID badge printer. There are a lot of card layout software titles out on the market these days, but the majority of them were developed with the Windows platform in mind. Even fewer have been tried and approved by the printer manufacturers themselves, with knowledge and support available to ensure that your investment pays off for you. Here at AvantIDge we’ve taken the time to work with both the software developers as well as the printer manufacturers to ensure that our lineup of products meets the level of compatibility and functionality you should expect from something as potentially complex as an identification issuance system. Though we have had … Continue reading
