We have a number of clients who want to allow authorized individuals to order their own cards, via the web, without having to take up administrative staff time. We offer an easy-to-use service to allow exactly this capability to, for example, online schools/universities/professional degree programs who wish to issue student ID cards to their remote students, or training programs who wish to allow their graduates to order online their credential/qualification cards.
We give our client a simple link to put on their website, allowing authorized individuals to click to order a card. They are then taken to our website, and we can also receive any non-modifiable data (such as student ID number, or training program, etc.). The individual sees the client’s banner, and is invited to enter any further information required. He/she then uploads and crops his preferred photo for the card, and sees an image of the card, as it will be printed, displayed on the screen. If the card is OK, he/she then enters the mailing address where the card is to be sent.
The card is printed and mailed within 24-hours. The individual, and the client, both receive email confirmations with an image of the card to be printed.
One option includes the printing of a personalized letter to accompany the card. Another option allows each individual to pay for the card they’re ordering at the time of order, by PayPal, at a pre-arranged fee set by the client.
This service removes many of the headaches associated with producing student and member cards: data integrity, photo upload, administrative overhead, mailing logistics, etc.
