What is a holographic ID card?
Holographic ID cards are plastic identity cards that contain a hologram to make the card more difficult to copy by fraudsters.
Holographic ID cards utilise holographic overlays to increase their visual authenticity. To the eye, holograms appear to change in the light and depending on the angle at which they are viewed.
ID cards with a holograph are secure because the holographic element is difficult if not impossible to remove, alter or duplicate.
How can I add a hologram to my ID card?
It's not so easy to add a hologram to your ID card after it has been printed. Indeed it is much more secure to have a hologram included as part of the ID card printing process.
Our holographic employee identity cards provide a high level of security. Every ID card has several layers containing images which are overlapped. This gives an illusion of colour and depth.
They are very secure and great for larger companies wishing to provide employees with ID cards which cannot be copied easily.
Who prints holographic ID cards in the UK?
Ahead Solutions UK (that's us!) deliver holographic ID cards to almost every UK location on a daily basis.
We're truly delighted to have recently worked with London's top music house for brands and their creative departments. Ahead Solutions UK were chosen to produce reflective printed garments for Wave Music London.
The company's logo has been applied in large format reflective material printed to the reverse of the garments and small logo to the front breast for one of Wave Music's up and coming events.
The result is stunning and we're sure will help the guys and girls look great and get noticed.
When can a personalised tshirt REALLY make your company stand out for the crowd? When it's printed in reflective material of course.
Reflective printing of company logos is rm... just one of the things we do best at Ahead Solutions UK so we weren't phased when approached by the directors of a new London FinTech start-up with a hand drawn company logo.
The logo was captured by camera from a whiteboard and recreated in reflective materials to garment by Ahead Solutions. it looks stunning as it catches the light and is sure to be a talking point at their up and coming launch event.
The reverse of the tshirt has the company's launch-day motif again printed in a tech font in reflective material.
The order has been turned around in just 4 days.
The guys and girls are going to look like a well branded cohesive team. We wish them all the very best at this exciting time for them.
Recently we conducted some research as part of an analysis of the local market. We made lots of telephone calls and sent scores of emails to help us bring you some sound advice before ordering company employee ID cards.
So in the interests of keeping this short here's the best advice I can share to keep in mind when ordering employee corporate Identity cards: -
If you wear a medical identity wristband read this!
NFC is the latest technology to really hit the streets with more applications than you can shake a stick at.
NFC embedded medical identity wristbands are one of the most helpful applications of the technology that everyone is raving about.
Why? Because an NFC embedded Medical ID Wristband allows you to carry UNLIMITED emergency contact and medical related information; amounts of life-saving information that you simply just would not be able to fit in writing on a standard wristband Identity card.
The benefit of this is that you are able to be certain that professionals such as paramedics, emergency services, police and medics have access to 'the full' picture; every last important medical detail of you.
Example: Jane has cystic fibrosis and lives an active life as possible. Jane is out and about as much as possible so feels comfortable in wearing her medical identity bracelet.
Jane takes over 60 tablets and medications a day and uses various pieces of medical equipment. Jane wears a medical identity bracelet but struggles to write all but the most important medications and contacts on the small identity card that goes inside the bracelet.
Switching to an NFC embedded medical bracelet allows Jane to include every single medication along with the frequency and dosage of each. She can also tell paramedics about any number of emergency contacts and list their mobile phone numbers, land lines and email addresses and even where they live and work. She can tell professionals about her medical equipment - the nebuliser that she depends upon for life saving delivery of Pulmazone. Jane wants to include 24/7 contact details for her specialist medical team at the clinic she attends. In other words Jane can give professionals UNLIMITED medical information...
... And all they need to do to access Jane's vital identity and life saving information is scan her wristband with an everyday Smartphone.
So how does an NFC Medical Identity Wristband Work?
