  1. 1

    Choose an online membership ID card designer to create a template. You can find links to several free versions in the Resource section.

  2. 2

    Include the member's name, your organisation's name and any other desired information on the template form.

  3. 3

    Make the member's name the largest text since you should be able to read the name from up to 3 feet away.

  4. 4

    Avoid adding too many graphics that can distract from the important information contained on the ID card.

  5. 5

    Load your printer with card stock paper and print your newly designed membership ID card.

  6. 6

    Cut out the paper card with a pair of scissors.

  7. 7

    Laminate the card so you end up with a professional and durable membership ID card. Purchase individual sheets of self-adhesive cold laminate. Place your ID card between two pieces of laminate and press to seal. Cut around the perimeter of the card with a pair of scissors.
