For ID programs demanding the highest level of card security, lamination and the inclusion of holographic overlays offer not only heightened visual security, but also durability and protection from tampering.
Laminated ID cards are ideal for active environments and ID programs where cards are frequently accessed for scanning. A laminated ID can last for upwards of seven years. That's some serious durability. Lamination also adds a layer of protection from tampering and counterfeiting. If someone tries to peel back the layers to manipulate the info on the card, for instance, it will be destroyed in the process.
