Thanks, Apple.

As you're probably well aware, our service makes heavy use of QR code technology. But, while QR codes have been around for quite some time, native support for the 2D bar codes has been lacking in most mobile devices. We don't mind answering calls from people saying "I took a picture of the QR code but nothing happened." But, it [...]

Request a FREE Sample CVS ID Card

Somehow, in our excitement over redesigning our website, we eliminated the page allowing you to request a free sample ID card. This was a gross oversight—The plastic ID badges are the heart of the Credential Verification Service. And, giving you the chance to see how durable, professional, and pretty they are is very important to us. (Did we mention they're [...]

EBay hopes 70-year-old tech will solve its problems.

... which is OK by us. We love fresh uses of old technology. Barcodes were originally developed in 1948. I’ll do the math for you—that’s 68 years ago! Yet, barcodes are still extremely useful. We work with companies of all sizes to find the best ways to use barcodes on their ID cards. So, naturally, we’re always interested to [...]
