Front of the card
Back of the card
The Photo ID Card bears:
- The card holder’s name.
- Employer’s name – However this is shown as ‘Individual’ for individuals.
- The disclosure check level, issue number and issue date.
- Our APCS contact details on the reverse so that the validity of the card can be independently verified
- The Card is supplied with a plastic holder and a lanyard.
All cards come with guilloche (fine line design). The complex design is extremely difficult to originate and print. It has an APCS reflective foil for added security against copying. The photos are processed and printed and become an integral part of the card. They are encapsulated under a top laminate which also has a unique design, making for a highly secure, durable and tamper proof Photo ID Card.
Verification service as standard
If a customer needs to verify that your staff have been DBS checked, they simply call us on the number provided on the back of the card and we will cross reference the details held on our database against those on the card to confirm that they are DBS checked
Cost and photograph
The cost is £12.50 plus VAT. The ID card can be requested during any point of the application process. A passport style photograph will need to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting the applicant’s name and date of birth.
