It may surprise you, but not everyone takes photo ID cards as seriously as we do! You’d be amazed at the “creativity” we see in ID card pictures. So while it may not be necessary for everyone, here are a few rules to avoid inappropriate pictures on your ID cards. These are especially important to make clear when you ask employees or members to submit/upload their own pictures.

  1. No sunglasses
  2. No profile pictures – front-facing only
  3. No comical faces or gestures
  4. No group pictures
  5. No distracting objects
  6. No hats or bandannas
  7. No low-resolution pictures
