Complete ID Systems

Complete or bundled ID card systems, normally comprise all the components necessary to make a basic, out of the box ID card system, albeit usually a fairly simple one that is available for ordering under one part number for the buyer's convenience.

The abovementioned components are the printer itself, a YMCKO colour ribbon, a box or pack of plain white card blanks and basic ID card design and production software. In some cases, a webcam or digital camera is included but usually the buyer is required to purchase this separately because the camera market changes its models and specifications so frequently.

Modern HD webcams are perfectly adequate for static or tethered image capture, where individuals come into an office to have their photo and other personal details entered into the system and then have their card issued while they wait. Digital cameras are better suited for taking photos offline for downloading to a file for batch printing where the cards are then issued in bulk a few days later.

Portable screen backdrops are available in various colours and designs to give uniformity when photos are being captured.
