Fisticuffs in your shared car park?


Visible from a distance, durable and flexible

Deter illegal parkers with hanging car park passes

Parking is often quoted as one of the most stressful parts of a working day.

Finding someone parked in your allocated spot or being unable to find a space when there should be enough to go round gets stress levels rising – before you’ve even reached your desk.

Shared car parks are often the worst

If you share a car park with lots of other companies in the building or business park, it can be hard to monitor who’s using it. Even if you have a car park barrier in place, that’s no guarantee that each person is parking in the right space when they’re inside it.

Hanging car park passes visibly deter ‘illegal’ parkers

One easy and cost-effective way to get round the problem is to have branded hanging car park passes printed with your own company information. Made in durable, flexible plastic, they hang from the rear view mirror and are highly visible – much more so than standard passes that sit on the dashboard.

As well as making it easy for security to spot them, branded hanging car park passes will deter any opportunistic parker from a distance – far better than just a sign could.

As the weather gets worse, so will the problem

People who were happy to stand at the train station or bus stop in the summer are less inclined to do it in the winter. If you make car park hanging passes company policy, they won’t be able to ‘chance their arm’ in their car when the weather’s bad.

Make hanging car park passes part of your visitor policy too

One of the issues in a shared car park is visitor parking. Make handing out a car park pass part of your signing-in procedure at reception, and it will soon become clear if other staff are trying to pass themselves off as a visitor.

Our custom designed plastic hanging car park passes start from just £190.68 for 100, and come in two sizes: 245x90mm or 148x85mm.

If there’s one thing that’s going to prompt a scuffle over a latte and croissant, it’s not getting the car parking space you’re entitled to.


When it’s cold and wet, where are your people parking?

When it’s wintry weather out there, we’d all rather jump into a warm car than brave the elements. Which is all very well when there’s enough parking to go around, but some organisations find their car parks being abused in bad weather by people who don’t have the right to park there.

Control who uses your car park with branded permits

Do you know who is parking in your car park at the moment? Staff from neighbouring businesses or the general public may be taking advantage of your spaces, or some of your own people could be nipping in when they’re not meant to. As well as creating a problem for those staff who do have a rightful parking space, this can also mean that visitors are unable to find a spot.

If you’re not in the market for an expensive vehicle entry solution, getting some car park passes printed could be an affordable alternative: for just £64.50 we can provide you with 100 custom branded plastic car park passes and holders.

The car park passes are made from specially designed tough polyester for durability and are wipe clean, so you can write on visitor details when they arrive. They are made to withstand UV and high & low temperatures. So for a small outlay, you could have branded car park passes that will help make parking issues a thing of the past at your workplace or school.

Deter illegal parkers

The car park passes will act as a deterrent for ‘illegal’ parkers, which may be enough. Or go one step further and have reception staff or admin staff go out to check cars for valid car park permits. A note on each vehicle that doesn’t have a car park pass is usually enough to dissuade the driver from parking there again. Or if it’s members of staff who are abusing the car park, you could ‘name and shame’ via registration numbers.

We know that parking is one of the major frustrations of the daily commute. Give your staff a stress-free arrival into work with their own car park pass.

Parking problems? Car park passes could help

There’s nothing more annoying than turning up at work or school and finding that someone has taken your car parking space. Having some simple car park passes printed could make that frustration a thing of the past.

We can print 100 plastic car park passes to your own design for just £99.00 (and we’ll include 50 self adhesive holders too).

The cards are made from specially designed tough polyester to withstand UV and high & low temperatures. They’re also wipe clean.

Problems with parking is well known to be one of the major frustrations of the daily commute. Car park passes are an inexpensive and really effective way of easing that frustration.

Safeguard your school with school visitor passes

It’s the new school term, have you got everything you need for the year ahead? The start of September often has schools and colleges looking at security on their premises with fresh eyes, which includes looking at school visitor passes.

If you’re an educational establishment, having adequate security measures in place to safeguard pupils and staff is paramount. Are you meeting your health & safety responsibilities and fulfilling your duty of care by having an up-to-date signing in system for visitors, parents and contractors?


School visitor passes
Keep track of all visitors to your premises

School visitor passes and signing-in systems are a quick and easy way of identifying visitors and recording their details – and are very inexpensive. You can buy off-the-shelf packages (often known as passes ‘in system’) which include 200 pre-numbered passes, writing board, wallet tower, pen set and visitor wallets and clips from £64.40.

The visitor passes system records the names and details of all visitors to your school or college and provides a paper pass or badge for them to wear whilst on the premises. The details form a timed and dated fire register, ensuring you meet your health & safety regulations and fulfil your duty of care. A discrete sheet keeps each visitor’s details confidential.

Customise passes to your own requirements

As well as standard visitor and contractor ‘in system’ passes, you can also design school visitor passes to include your school’s colours and logo, or incorporate specific health and safety regulations or safety and fire evacuation details. You might want to list prohibited items for example, or use different colours to highlight different access rights – useful for when contractors are on-site, and you only want them to access specific areas.

ID cards & swipe cards: how secure is your workplace, really?

Card products to increase security
Is your business and staff adequately protected?

How confident are you that your building, staff and equipment are adequately protected? And what about your visitors – are you following health and safety regulations?

When talk turns to protecting your business, the focus naturally falls on insurance first. Having the right policies in place covering contents, buildings, employees and professional indemnity is crucial should the worst happen.

But when is the last time you properly looked at your business from a security perspective? Do you have photographic ID cards and swipe cards as protection for example?

How secure is your building?
The larger the building and numbers of staff, the more opportunities there are for unwanted visitors to enter your premises. Having an entry system is a good place to start and doesn’t have to be prohibitively expensive. There are many access control options out there on the market, and you can choose from swipe cards, key fobs, encoded ring tags, wrist tags, tokens and even time and attendance systems.

Keep track of visitors and contractors
Keeping track of every visitor to your building is also paramount from a health and safety perspective. We stock packs of Visitor Passes and Contractor Passes which contain everything you need to set up and record the visitor’s information whilst creating a current fire register and future reference sheet.
