Specifications and Intended Use

Custom printed bulk cards are often customized by the end user. For example, a ski resort would order bulk cards with their liability release printed on the backside; this streamlines th finishing process to personalized the card issued by the ski resort as a season pass.

We do not produce novelty cards nor do we make fake ID cards of any kind.

ID cards are offered in 3 material types:

  • 100% PVC - for applications where cards will be in use for 1 year or less.
  • 60/40 Composite PET - This hybrid construction (40% polyester and 60% PVC) produces a more durable card, which is typically required when card life is intended for more than 1 year such as universities, corporate badges, etc. Composite cards are also recommended for high durability applications such as military, ski resorts, etc. The standard 60/40 card has a polyester outer surface front and back.
  • 60/40 Composite PVC - Composite cards with a PVC finish are recommended for FARGO printers.

Security Hologram Options

NovaVision offers affordable security holograms to combat attempts to counterfeit your ID cards.

Holographic Overlay

After printing, a transparent holographic overlay is applied over the printing. For low volume applications, we can provide stock adn custom overlays which are manually applied. For high volume applications (over 50,000 ID cards) the lamination can be machine-applied with a desktop ID card printer (typical machines made by FARGO, MagicCard, Zebra, etc). The overlay protects the printing from wear and from tampering.

Embedded Holograms

These blank ID cards feature the holograms embedded into the actual card. After printing, the card can be machine- laminated using a standard ID card printer (typical machines made by FARGO, MagicCard, Zebra, etc).

Silver “Secure” Label:

The Silver “Secure” Hologram is our most affordable way to secure your ID Cards. This hologram is stock product (offered to many customers) but it offers appropriate counterfeit protection for low security applications.

Our Silver “Secure” Hologram is also tamper evident. If an attempt is made to remove the label from the product or document, or to reposition it, the image self-destructs. This is an additional security feature

Custom Imprinted Hologram:

NovaVision offers a variety of affordable stock holograms, which can be custom imprinted with your company name, logo, consecutive serial number and other features.

All imprinted labels must be customized with a unique imprint. For added security we maintain a hologram imprint registry to assure that your unique imprint is only available to your company.

Warning to Counterfeiters

If you are not authorized to purchase the product, your contact information may be provided to law enforcement authorities without further notice. NovaVision cooperates with all local, state, federal and international law enforcement agencies to catch and prosecute fraudulent purchases and counterfeiting.

Counterfeiting is illegal and is defined as any attempt to copy an original with the intent to defraud. It is illegal to purchase a fake identification product, an unauthorized custom hologram, an unauthorized duplicate security label, or counterfeit packaging which uses a copyrighted brand name or logo. Further, in the USA, legislation is pending to expand the criminal law so that federal prosecutors will have an easier time prosecuting counterfeiters that manufacture bogus product labels and packaging.
