Don’t overspend on ID cards, use our card bank

Photo ID cards cost less than you think – especially when you can ‘bank’ any you don’t need for later use

Photo ID cards aren’t just for large companies with the budgets to match.

The Card Network caters for small companies, charities or organisations that want to badge a small number of staff for security or safety purposes. With more ID card suppliers in the UK switching to offering card printers only, we’re proud to still offer ID cards in quantities as small as 10.

High quality, durable photo ID cards don’t have to break the bank

Many of our customers are small organisations or charities that need small numbers of ID cards for collectors or fundraisers. The nature of their work means they might need one or two new ID cards every month or so, for a new collector or a new event. This leaves them facing two unattractive options: either invest in an expensive ID card printer, or pay for a new print run every time a new card was needed.

We didn’t think this was very fair, so we introduced Card Bank.

Our ID Cards come in packs of 10, 25, 50, 100 & 250.

If you don’t use all of the cards in a pack with your initial order, you can ‘bank’ the remainder with us for future use at no extra cost.

It’s a great way of meeting future card requirements without any hassle or spending further budget.

How does it work?

Simply choose one of our card packs and whatever quantity you don’t use will be held in a virtual ‘bank’. So if you only need 16 cards right now, order the 25 pack and we’ll hang onto the other 9 cards until you need them.

You can then place orders throughout the year, even for single cards, until your balance is used up. There is no extra charge for this service, and you can order as many times as you like. You’ll only pay a small fee for packing and delivery.

What are the benefits of ordering this way?

  • Save time and hassle

Having a bank of cards ready to be ‘drawn down’ whenever you need them makes the process of ordering cards simple and quick – you don’t have to go through the ordering and billing process again.

  • More cost effective

If you order a larger block of cards than you need straight away, you’ll benefit from a lower unit price and you won’t have to pay for any small quantities in the future.

  • Less paperwork

There’s only one purchase order and one invoice to deal with, rather than the hassle of raising paperwork for every individual order.

  • No minimum quantity

You can order your cards in as small quantities as you like, even single cards. The only thing you’ll pay for is a small delivery charge.

  • Fast turnaround

As there are no purchase orders or invoices to be raised, or designs to be created, we can print your cards and despatch them straight away.

Proud to still provide printed ID cards

As more ID card suppliers in the UK switch to offering card printers only, The Card Network continues to offer printed ID cards in quantities as small as 10.

Supporting small enterprises and charities

Printed plastic ID card
Our high quality ID cards start in packs of 10

Many of the people who buy our ID card packs are charities, who need small numbers of ID cards for their collectors or fundraisers. Our packs of 25 or 50 cards are also popular with smaller companies and primary schools that want to badge their staff.

Neither has the money to invest in costly card printers. Whereas larger organisations with a regular need for ID cards may benefit from a plastic card printer, the return on investment simply isn’t there for the smaller player. We don’t believe you should be penalised for your size, which is why we continue to offer small runs of ID cards.

Use only what you need and ‘bank’ the rest for later

All our ID card packs also come with our ‘card bank’. This means we only print the number of cards you need now, then save the rest until you need them. So if you only need 17 ID cards at the moment, buy the 25 card pack and you can call on the remaining 8 ID cards throughout the year. You can ‘call off’ the remaining cards as many times as you like – the only charge will be a new posting fee.

10 ID cards, clips & card holders start from just £93.09. We can also add signature panels or magnetic stripe for extra security from as little as £1 extra. Our prices also include design & artworking – simply send us your details and we’ll do the rest.

The Card Network is committed to supporting small enterprise. We supply our high quality, low cost ID cards to schools, colleges, healthcare organisations, charities and companies all over the country.
