The delivery of data can be done in several ways, but CardImpulz prefers an excel spreadsheet (e.g. .xls or .cvs) which clearly indicates what is what in each column. Please be reminded that Excel automatically removes the 0 at the beginning of a number. To prevent this from happening, format your cells as text.
Photo ID Card artwork
How do you get the best result when you choose to print the photo ID card your self?
To print on a blank card the photo should be converted to your computer with the card design software in a series of recognizable bits. These days there are many digital cameras on the market that can make a constant series of photos. Photographers can do this until you have an acceptable result on the screen. The quality of the picture largely depends on the lighting used when taking the picture. Natural light is usually the best, but also geodesic halogen lighting gives an excellent result. CardImpulz advices you not to use fluorescent lamps such as fluorescent tubes which contain no full spectrum and will therefore not give a correct representation of the face. Obviously the resolution is also important; CardImpulz advices you to set the resolution of your camera at 640 x 480 pixels.
