Best ways to display your ID badges
Once you’ve put the time and effort into producing ID badges for your organization the next step is to find a way to proudly and securely display them. DiscountID.com offers a number of solutions for securely displaying ID cards while keeping them easily accessible for security personnel to verify card authenticity or for swiping and scanning. ID accessories enhance the benefits that ID cards bring to any business or organization.
ID badge lanyards are a popular choice for many ID card programs, providing a high-visibility method for displaying ID cards. Lanyards can attach directly to cards or to badge holders. DiscountID.com’s selection of lanyards comes in a variety of materials and colors. Custom lanyards are also available.

Badge reels are an ideal choice for cards that will be swiped or scanned often such as badges with magnetic stripe encoding and smart chips. ID badge reels have retractable cords that make it easy to access ID cards whenever needed. Like lanyards, badge reels come in an assortment of shapes, colors, attachments, and materials.

For more enhanced badge protection, ID badge holders provide a secure way to display ID badges while protecting them from everyday wear and tear. Badge holders often come with slot and chain holes for attaching to lanyards or badge reels. DiscountID.com’s selection of badge holders includes clear and colored holders, rigid badge holders, ID arm bands, specialty badge holders and more.

Eco-Friendly Badge Accessories and Supplies
With April comes Earth Day, and if you’re looking for some ways to make your ID card program green conscious we’re featuring some of our most popular environmentally friendly ID badge accessories and supplies. These accessories and supplies are made from sustainable resources and recycled materials that help reduce waste while still delivering top notch results.
Standard Earth-Friendly Bamboo Lanyards – These breakaway lanyards are made from 100% bamboo, a strong, anti-microbial material. Comfortable to wear, bamboo is one of the Earth’s most sustainable resources.
Adhesive-Back Cards – Adhesive-back cards save resources by allowing card program operators to reuse expensive technology cards. These thin, sticky-back cards can be printed with cardholder information and then attached to technology badges like HID cards. When an individual leaves the organization, the adhesive-back card can be removed and the technology card can be reused for another cardholder.
Recycled PVC Cards – These cards are made of recycled plastic and come in Standard CR80 size. The earth-friendly recycled cards will provide the same durability and print quality as regular PVC cards, while helping your ID program achieve green status.
