People can be hard on their ID Cards and Badges, causing them to wear out quickly. We recommend using an overlaminate layer to prolong the life of your plastic ID card and protect it from fraud and forgery. Zebra, Evolis, Magicard, Fargo and Datacard each offer overlaminate ribbons that effectively shield your ID Cards from abrasion, wear-and-tear and tampering by adding a protective coating that cannot be removed without damaging the card. Laminate coatings generally range from .06 mil to 1 mil thick, and can be clear or contain fraud-proof holographic images. Adding a laminate to your ID Card or Badge will save you money in the long run by protecting your PVC card stock, ID printer ribbons and card printing equipment. Learn all about adding additional security to your ID badges in our helpful series on Overlaminates with Custom Holograms. Contact us at 877-868-0012 if you need help finding the best overlaminate for your ID card issuance program.
