ID access cards, produced with text and photo personalization, and matte lamination.
ID cards could be official papers such as driving license, student cards, health insurance cards or subscription cards for public transport, libraries and other state or private institutions. The ID cards often act as access cards – when in contact with a reading device (via RFID chips or magnetic stripes), the card verifies its owner and his clearance. At J Point Cards we usually personalize these type of PVC cards with a photo, name, barcode or other essential variable data and, considered as official documents, they could be also produced with special security and resistant features and special effects – hologram stickers, UV ink visible only under UV light, RFID chips, magnetic stripes and lamination.
The standard card size is 86x54 mm. Cards can be horizontal or vertical, depending on the individual project. When preparing print files, it is necessary to give 2 mm bleeds on all sides. The magnetic tape has a width of 12.7 mm and is usually placed 4 mm from the top or bottom edge of the card.
The files should be:
1) Format * EPS; * TIF; * CDR; PDF; * PS; scale 1: 1; min 300 dpi
2) All fonts should be in curves (vector)
3) All colors must be CMYK
Embossing: For embossing you need to predict that it starts 9 mm from the edge of the card. Remember that on the back of the embossed letters the plastic is deformed (debossed), so if you have an important text it will not be read clearly.
