Lamination Without the Extra Cost

Posted October 17, 2012

Are you looking to secure your ID card but don’t have the budget for a printer with lamination capabilities? Well, BarcodesInc and Zebra have the solution for you!

Zebra’s “Genuine Secure” hologram overlaminate patch is hand-applied with its peel-n-stick feature, so a lamination ID card printer isn’t needed. Just simply, peel and apply up to 500 patches per roll. The overlaminate patch features a “Secure” text hologram that serves as an anti-counterfeiting measure and makes the ID card difficult to replicate. The hologram overlaminate patch can be used with all manufacturers’ cards, including Fargo, Datacard, and Evolis.
