An ID card to identify your students

School badges are named and personalized. They can therefore include various features to identify the student:

  • First name, surname
  • Photo
  • Date of birth
  • Grade of studies
  • Special diet, etc. 

In order to differentiate between grades, different color codes can be applied.

Encoding technologies can also be added to the card:

  • Barcodes to facilitate school cafeteria management
  • Contactless RFID chip to ensure site security and control access to your sites
