Since 1997, Kyle has been successfully integrating card solutions into all kinds of projects, large and small. In his free time, he likes to....actually, scrap that. He has no free time.

What is Cards-as-a-Service?

CaaS (or, Cards as a Service) is the new way to issue ID Cards to your Employees or Students without the hassle of complex, locally-installed software & hardware systems.

CaaS is a subscription-based pay-as-you-go and pay-for-what-you-need solution to issue ID cards, and replaces current out-dated methodologies.

You Create. We Print.

How is CaaS different?

At present, issuing ID Cards requires the purchase of Photo ID Software which is installed on a PC sitting on your desk.  The software allows you to design cards, link to a database, and capture photos before printing the data & design onto a plastic card.

CaaS frees you from installing software on your PC, and allows you access to your Card Designs and data from the cloud.  Simply go to the URL link, enter your username/password combination, and begin creating ID cards for your organization.  Your data is on secure servers in Canada, backed up, and protected.


How do I get the ID Cards?

There are two options for producing ID Cards.  

You can design and submit your card designs through the online system and we will print the cards for you, hassle free.  Submit your ID card jobs online, and you receive the cards in the courier a few days later.

Alternatively, you can print to your local card printer on your PC or network.  This gives you the convenience of cloud-based solutions with on-site card production.


How much will I save?

CaaS users are able to lower costs in a number of ways, mostly through the reduction of “soft costs” which are often substantial.  

Users can subscribe and begin the card creation process immediately without waiting for the delivery of software on a CD, or scheduling time with their internal IT department to grant administrator permissions to complete an installation.

Users do not have to maintain or update their software when the PC is upgraded.  There are no dependencies on the PC or the Operating System.  Moving from Windows™ 7 to 10 is seamless as there is no installation necessary.


How much does CaaS cost?

Choose from a variety of packages that best fits your budget.

CaaS Per Card, we print, no minimums: $ 22.88 per card (includes mailing cost)
CaaS Subscription, you print on your Card Printer: $ 36.00 per month

Call us today, and we can customize your quotation based on your anticipated card printing volumes.
