Accessories for ID cards: A profitable business

Accessories and consumables for ID cards, such as card covers, punch pliers, individually printed lanyards, carry straps and price tags are used in many fields. They are used in health care, in access control and time recording, in banking and in event and parking lot management. 

For example, card clips in the form of metal clips or plastics clip are excellently suitable for attaching visitors’ badges; as ID or card holders, they are to be attached rotatably and so as to be easily visible to vests, jackets, blouses and shirts.

Magnetic price tag bar stands ensure optimum stability in sales shelves and counters, and they can be attached to bowls and dishes as well. Individually printed lanyards serve as a carrier medium for ID visitor badges e.g. at events, where they exude an individual flair. They are available with various ribbon colours, material structures and safety closures. Control ribbons are usually made of high-quality 3-layer vinyl with a pressure closure and convince with impressive appearance. They ensure fast and easy optical identification of visitor groups, are waterproof, and can be printed individually with metallic effects as well.

This little florilegium of examples shows how versatilely and imaginatively these accessories can be used in hundreds of applications. Here BlueStar cooperates with very innovative manufacturers, which provide attractive offers to our resellers and integrators for additional profit. This enables our partners to expand their product portfolio and increase the chances of cross-selling. Accessories thus offer more intense market access and better identification with the market for ID cards.

At the same time, however, they also offer a door to new market niches with the possibility of satisfying further needs of the end customer, in addition to the core competences. Accessories for ID cards and consumables, as well as a broader range of products, will strengthen our partners’ customer loyalty and increase their customer retention, and give them an even stronger base in the market.
