More than once we have heard from customers wishing that the site provided a sample of what the AdultInfoCard will look like with the photo, and we wish we could too! The problem comes down to the intricacies of programming and the changes we routinely make before printing an AdultInfoCard. The biggest thing is that we almost always crop the picture and then do things like lighten the image, adjusting the color if it needs balancing, or sharpening up a fuzzy image. Also, we sometimes need to make other changes, such as changing “and” to &, or moving the spacing around for the Vital Information field to make the words look better. Sometimes we have to fix simple mistakes, such as when people put in the year the picture was taken, rather than the age of the person in the picture.

Bottom line, we do everything we can to make our badges look as good as possible, so a preview would not be an accurate reflection of the final product. Every single badge is done by hand, and if we see something that looks like it might be an error, such as the wrong gender or an age that just doesn’t look right, we contact the customer before finishing the cards.

we never ignore customer wishes or try to be difficult, and truly appreciate questions. Hope this helps!

What Documents Do We Need?

January 27th, 2015

One of the most common questions we hear is “what documents do you need to make our ID”, especially for adults. It’s important to remember the difference between a card that is proof of your identity, and a photo ID. Only government produced cards are proof of your identity, and that very short list includes driver’s licenses, passports, military IDs, and native american tribal photo IDs. Our cards do not replace one of those, but is perfectly acceptable for many things, including domestic flights for children. This means that no documentation is required. This also means that adults should check carefully before they order the AdultInfoCards — if it won’t work for what you need, we don’t want you to buy it! If you’ve lost your driver’s license, you can still fly. Just call your carrier, tell them what’s happened, and let them tell you what they’ll need as proof of your identity. Any more questions, just call 800-462-2328, or email sharon@travel-idcard.com.

There are so many shady online businesses now that many people are concerned.  We frequently receive calls that begin “Are you a real company?”  We’ve been in business since 2008 and have thousands of satisfied clients, so the answer is definitely “Yes.”  One easy way to check any business out, including us, is to go to the Better Business Bureau and read about us.   And if you’d like to post a review, the BBB is a great place to do so.

Most people have dozens of cute pictures of their friends in their phones and computers, ready to be shown at a moment’s notice. Unfortunately, when they are choosing photos for us to use on an AdultInfoCard, the pictures we receive have the faces in dark shadows. We do our best to brighten and sharpen the images, because we will never send out a badge with an unclear picture, but are often frustrated with a less than perfect picture. We crop your photo, so don’t need a tight close up, but facial clarity is the key. When choosing that perfect picture for your AdultInfoCard, please focus on a clear, well lit face for the best results.

What in the heck is a AdultInfoCard, and why would you want one? Most adults have either a driver’s license or an identification card issued by their state DMV office.  But there are several very good reasons why you might also want to carry an AdultInfoCard.  The back of each AdultInfoCard is available for information regarding medications, medical information, allergies, insurance information, and virtually any information that might be useful for someone to know if you weren’t able to speak to them.  That information, together with contact information on the front of the AdultInfoCard, means that in the event of an accident, medical professionals would know how to care for you and who to contact. That means that adults with health or cognitive issues, and their families, can have much great peace of mind.

Sometimes an adult is asked for multiple Photo ID’s, which can be a problem if they only have their license with them.  The AdultInfoCard can be the perfect solution. It is not a government issued proof of identity, but when just an additional photo ID is requested, it is generally accepted.

Your safety and the safety of your other family members is the most important consideration, but why should you choose the AdultInfoCard over competitors on the market?  First of all, because it’s a plastic card, rather than a laminated paper card.  The AdultInfoCard comes with a soft, cotton lanyard which can be worn around the neck for easy access and visibility.  The lanyards come in a wide variety of vibrant colors and have a break-away catch for safety.  The AdultInfoCard is more customizable than any other card available, with the entire back of the card available for whatever information might be important.  Things like health insurance information, allergies, medications, extra contacts, behavior or physical issues, etc., can all be printed on the card.

Any questions about the AdultInfoCard?  Just call 800-462-2328 or email sharon@travel-idcard.com with “question” in the subject line.  To check out all our products, go to the shopping card site, www.travel-idcard.com.
