We have a number of options available for ID and technology cards. We can supply plain or pre-printed, self-adhesive and coloured ID cards. All our cards are suitable for customised printing on site via our ID card printer.

We are your in-house printing solution; providing printers, ribbons, cleaning kits and shredders. Safetynet Solutions is on the cutting edge of GDPR compliancy and can help keep your digital IDs safe. We offer card and ribbon shredders as well as lockable printers to help protect your data.

If identification is not required, and your cards are only being used for access purposes, (e.g. multi-tenanted building access cards) then we can supply a variety of key fobs. Our extremely robust and versatile key fobs have many benefits including a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.

Pre-Printed ID cards with our bureau service

Whatever style of card you require, whether for large or small volume, our plastic card printer range can produce it – from plain plastic PVC cards, to ‘smart’ encoded cards.

We can accommodate a huge variety of applications using a wide range of technologies. We can design and print anything from small bespoke volumes or large generic card orders for personalisation later.

To help you make the right choice for your requirements, we have created the below guide to show the different advantages of each card printing service.

Complex designs and/or Pantone matched colours can all be achieved with a high quality, pre-printed card. Individual or personal details such as name, photo, job title, contact details, membership number are added later. We offer the choice of supplying generic cards ready to be customised on-site with a card printer, or we can provide the cards fully personalised and ready to use by taking advantage of our bureau service.


Tech ID Cards As well as plain cards, we also have the ability to encode cards to be used as access cards. We are fully capable of providing industry standard methods of encoding such as Paxton, HID, PAC, Mifare and TDSI – speak to us about your encoding requirements!

There are many counterfeit countermeasure technologies that can be used for PVC cards. You may have seen some of these on a credit card or drivers license, such as holograph overlays, holographic metallised foil sections that change appearance depending on the angle they are viewed from and also fine guilloche patterns that make duplication difficult. There are also other technologies also that you may not know about that are not visible to the naked eye, such as infrared and UV printed components, that only show up (or disappear) when viewed under certain lighting, and thermochromic ink that appears different colours when exposed to different temperatures.

If you need secure ID or access cards, we can supply one or more of the above technologies on a single card as well as many others. Call our team on 01270 508 550 to discuss all the options and find a solution for your organisation.
