How Do I Add a Barcode to My ID Badges?
Barcodes are used for a variety of applications such as time & attendance and meal programs. They are the most commonly used card technology in the U.S. workplace due to the minimal cost and ease of adding a barcode to an existing card or combining it with other card technologies, such as a magnetic stripe or proximity card.
No special equipment is needed to print a barcode. Any ID card printer can do it. You simply need some type of software to generate the barcode and of course the barcode reader itself. Most ID card software programs support a variety of standard barcode types such as interleaved 2 of 5 and code 39. The type of barcode you choose depends on the application and amount of data needed. HID’s Asure ID Express will allow for sequential numbering or automatic population based on the entry of another field, which dramatically increases the speed of your card production process.
If you are not sure if the program you are currently using will allow you to add a barcode or if you are looking into a new ID badge system, contact an ID Professional at ID Wholesaler for assistance by calling (800) 321-4405.Tags: Barcode | Category: Helpful Tips & Support | Subscribe to comments | Leave a comment | Trackback URL | Connect on Google+
