    Red face A really cheeky question

    Now my biggest gripe at school is the lack of staff ID. I know there are the ID card printers out there but its not part of our schools priority at the moment.

    Now i know some of you out there have these printers....would any of you be willing to print ours for us (obviously at a price), some basic ones until we get ourselves sorted.

    If not does anyone know of an external company that do this?

    Thanks

    (you dont know unless you ask!)

    Getting the time to print ours is difficult at the moment, but I would say speak to the people at Payne Security. Payne Security, leaders in Brand Protection, Document Authentication and Personal ID

    That's who we bought our stuff from, and they do a printing service too.

    Most places that do the id photography (if you don't do it inhouse) can usually do it or can recommend people that can.

    Another vote for Payne, used them in the past, Nick Hillier(I think) and Julie Smaje looked after us to the tune of a few quid a card.

    Speak to me later when i am online should be able to help you out there

    I am just in the process of doing all our staff ID cards, the photo's are actually been taken on wednesday. when i do these over the next 2 weeks i should be able to do some for you we have just brought all of the printing materials and i have alot of plastic cards that i used for testing the design to print you some off. obviously you wont need the paxton access cards that we have so these plastic cards will be perfect for what you need.

    I can create the design for you and the you can just give me a list of names and photo's (if you need photo's) and i can print them off for you.

    James.

    Very Very True!

    we had that problem, but as the ID's are going to be on the Paxton door access cards and the staff also need these in a morning and when they leave to sign in and out they have no choice but to wear it

    You'd think that wouldn't you? We have a paxton access system in our school, and about half the staff stick em in their wallets, pockets, bags etc... The wallets are great, as they bend the cards and break the internals of the card.

    You'll also have to put up with the wonderful world of 'staff washing their cards', 'staff losing their cards' and my favourite 'staff giving their all areas access, with access to rooms containing money and pupil data, to kids so they can go get something for them'...

    Just a hint: don't just get lanyards, get the plastic pockets and some of the different clips for the pockets and badge holders, not everyone likes to have stuff around their neck.

    Also with the lanyards, make sure you get the ones with the plastic bits that came apart when pulled on or caught on something for health and safety reasons.

    A example of the alternative holder/clips i'm talking about is ThinkGeek :: Badge Holders (i don't know what most places call them and i knew thinkgeek had them) which can clip onto belts,shirts,pockets, everywhere inbetween.

    Two very good points. The clips are good for those style-conscious staff (yes, there are some nowadays, unlike when I was at school!) who want to put them discretely on their belts / clip them on their trouser pockets. We have hell's delight getting staff to wear them... and I can't say I'm too keen, myself.

    Health and Safety? Too right. I'm a Tech teacher in the workshops most of the day. Enough said. I asked if I could have mine on my bag as I keep it with me all day. The school seems OK with that.
