Manufacturing Badge Cards

Identification cards, such as credit cards, containing both printed and punched information can be batch prepared. Such is realized by using standard punched card processing equipment with complete accuracy by forming the card in the following series of steps:

(a) Punching a standard 80 column card with the full column of punches and the leading and trailing edge cutouts shown,

(b) Reproducing from a master deck into the badge deck identification data in a non-badge field of the card,

(c) Printing in the badge area from the master deck, using a bill feed and comparing upon the identification number field,

(d) Laminating the cards in the badge area between sheets of plastic material which bond through the punched columns and the cutouts,

(e) Reproducing the badge deck from the master deck, punching through the plastic, with comparing on the identification field, and

(f) Trimming the laminated badge card to size, the badge now containing the full-checked punched and printed data.
