Best Practices: Guidelines Storage Plastic Cards Management

At Plastic Card ID , we understand the importance of preserving the integrity of your plastic cards. Our comprehensive guidelines are designed to provide you with all the necessary information to ensure the proper storage of your plastic cards. By following our best practices, you can protect your cards from damage and wear, thereby maintaining their quality and functionality. We're committed to ensuring that each card reflects your brand's commitment to excellence every time it's used.

Effective storage of plastic cards starts with understanding the materials they're made from and their sensitivities. Plastic cards are highly durable, but improper storage can lead to premature wear and tear. At PCID , we prioritize the longevity of your cards and equip you with the knowledge to care for them properly.

Creating the right environment for your cards is crucial. They must be kept away from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight, as this can cause warping and fading. It's best to store cards at room temperature in a dry place.

Moreover, consider the location within your facility where the cards are stored. You'll want to ensure that they are not only secure, but also easily accessible for those who need them.

Handling your plastic cards with care is just as important as where you store them. Always hold cards by their edges to reduce the risk of scratching or leaving fingerprints on the magnetic strip or chip. When dispensing cards to users, offer them in a card holder or envelope to minimize direct contact.

Our team at PCID can also provide you with guidelines on how to clean your cards without causing damage, should they require it.

Magnetic interference can render the magnetic stripes on your cards useless. Ensure that your storage location is free from strong magnetic fields. Keep cards away from electronic devices and appliances that can generate a magnetic field.

This can include anything from phone chargers to computer monitors, so be mindful of where you place your card storage.

Selecting the right accessories for your card storage is vital. Utilize cardholders, card files, or special drawers that prevent cards from rubbing against each other, which can cause scratches and chip damage. Protective sleeves and covers can offer an additional layer of security against physical damage and dirt accumulation.

Feel free to contact us at 800.835.7919 if you need assistance selecting the right storage accessories.

At PCID , we emphasize the importance of maintaining the functionality of your cards over time. This not only extends their lifespan but ensures that they remain an effective tool for your business.

Regular maintenance goes a long way in extending the life of your cards. This includes periodically checking their condition, cleaning them when necessary, and cycling out cards that are showing signs of wear.

We recommend setting up a schedule to inspect your cards, allowing for any damaged or compromised cards to be replaced promptly.

Implementing guidelines on how to use and handle the cards can prevent unnecessary damage. Educate your staff and cardholders on the best practices, such as not bending the cards and avoiding contact with liquids.

By doing so, you not only preserve the cards but also the data they carry.

Technology evolves, and so do security features on cards. Stay informed about the latest card technologies and consider periodic updates or upgrades to your card systems to ensure optim], we are readily available to assist with card updates or provide recommendations for newer options.

We also offer a selection of card printers and refill supplies, consistently stocking the latest in card technology.

Overtime, some cards may become obsolete, either due to technological advancements or company rebranding. Developing a system for phasing out old cards responsibly is part of our comprehensive guideline.

Cards that are no longer in use should be securely destroyed to protect any sensitive information they may contain. Simple recycling advice can be provided upon inquiry.

Protecting the data on your plastic cards is paramount. PCID guidelines are crafted to ensure that, along with physical durability, your cards" security and confidentiality are never compromised.

Storing your cards in a secure location not only protects them from physical damage but also from unauthorized access. Use locks, security systems, or restricted access areas to store your cards to prevent data theft or misuse.
