4 Questions to Ask When Looking for the Perfect ID Badge Holder While most of us focus on getting the perfect ID cards made fretting over the precision and quality more often than not we take the card holders for granted. Though the card holder is one of the most important accessories that holds the ID card and keeps it secure most of the people have a vague or no idea of what they need to look for in a card holder. Most of us perceive the holder to be a plastic envelope that carries the card. That may be accurate but the ID card holder has got more to it than that. You can have a card holder in variety of options such as rigid flexible clear coloured plastic or premium vinyl. The options are overwhelming and make it difficult to choose the best one. However it can be made easier by narrowing down the options first. Here ’s a look at some questions that will help in narrowing down the list of options. While they might not help in landing on the one perfect badge but answering them will certainly help you decide. 1. What type of card you are carrying While the card holder performs the same function of carrying the card your requirement will differ based on the use of the card.

On the other hand if you own a smart card you would need a rigid card holder as they prevent the inserted credentials from bending which is imperative for technology driven cards. Bending can ruin the internal chip. 2. Are you worried about identity theft Data theft from the smart cards known as skimming is a serious matter as in some cases the credentials are duplicated even from a feet away. One of the ways to prevent this is by using a shielded card holder that uses a thin piece of metal for preventing the inserted card from being read. Since the card have extra protective layers and contains a lot of information about you and your company it is also essential to have special lanyards for them. 3. How many cards do you carry For most people the card holder with room for one card is enough but some companies issue multiple cards such as an ID card and a card for payment in cafeteria. For carrying multiple cards you can go for 3-card B-holder which is a plastic vertical holder that holds up to 3 cards at once protecting them from bending cracking and any other damage. You can also use a credential wallet which comes with multiple pockets to slip in your ID cards and other credentials. 4.
