What documents do we need?

October 17th, 2019

One of the most common questions we hear is “what documents do you need to make our ID”, especially for adults. It’s important to remember the difference between a card that is proof of your identity, and a photo ID. Only government produced cards are proof of your identity, and that very short list includes driver’s licenses, passports, military IDs, and native american tribal photo IDs. Our cards do not replace one of those, but is perfectly acceptable for many things, including domestic flights for children. This means that no documentation is required. This also means that adults should check carefully before they order the AdultInfoCards — if it won’t work for what you need, we don’t want you to buy it! If you’ve lost your driver’s license, you can still fly. Just call your carrier, tell them what’s happened, and let them tell you what they’ll need as proof of your identity. Any more questions, just call 916-803-1665, or email sharonsdarrow@gmail.com.

October 17th, 2019

Travel ID Cards is your very best source for Photo IDs!  Our trademark cards — KidsTravelCard, TeenTravelCard, AdultInfoCard, and PetTravelCard — are easy to order and to use, providing you with the greatest flexibility of information around. We also do custom cards for commercial use, including employee badges, membership cards, discount cards, almost anything you can think of. We know security is important for businesses, which is why we can offer barcodes, mylar-backed adhesive cards to use with your door swipe systems, and hologram overlay. If you need an ID card, with or without a photo, and don’t see it on our site, just call us at 916-803-1665 or email your question to sharonsdarrow@gmail.com. The most important product we provide is SERVICE, so please contact us and let us help solve your Photo ID issues.

More than once we have heard from customers wishing that the site provided a sample of what the KidsTravelCard, TeenTravelCard, AdultInfoCard, or PetTravelCard will look like with the photo, and we wish we could too! The problem comes down to the intricacies of programming and the changes we routinely make before printing a card. The biggest thing is that we almost always crop the picture and then do things like lighten the picture, adjusting the color if it needs balancing, or sharpening up a fuzzy image. Also, we sometimes need to make other changes, such as changing “and” to &, or moving the spacing around for the Vital Information field to make the words fit. Sometimes we have to fix simple mistakes, such as when people put in the year the picture was taken, rather than the age of the child.

Bottom line, we do everything we can to make the KidsTravelCard, TeenTravelCard, AdultInfoCard, or PetTravelCard look as good as possible, so a preview would not be an accurate reflection of the final product. Every single badge is done by hand, and if we see something that looks like it might be an error, such as the wrong gender or an age that just doesn’t look right, we contact the customer before finishing the cards.

We never ignore customer wishes or try to be difficult, and truly appreciate questions. Hope this helps!

Most people have dozens of cute pictures of their family members and pets in their phones, ready to be shown at a moment’s notice. Unfortunately, when they are choosing photos for us to use on their KidsTravelCards, TeenTravelCards, AdultInfoCards, or PetTravelCards, the pictures we receive have the dark shadows or too bright sunspots. We do our best to brighten and sharpen the pictures, because we will never send out a badge with an unclear image, but are often frustrated with a less than perfect photo to work with. We crop your picture, so don’t need a tight close up, but facial clarity is the key. When choosing that perfect picture for your ID badge, please focus on a clear, well lit face for the best results.

What in the heck are KidsTravelCards or TeenTravelCards, and why does your child need one?  If you’re planning a trip by plane, you’ll probably need a Photo ID for your child. KidsTravelCards and TeenTravelCards are accepted by the major airlines for domestic travel and has extra contact information just in case your child is separated from the parents.  This is particularly important if your child is flying as an unaccompanied minor!  If you’re planning any type of travel, either an extended vacation or theme park, or to a local fair or school event, KidsTravelCards and TeenTravelCards provide peace of mind because they have contact information to help reunite the family if the child becomes lost or separated.  If you are traveling out of the country, KidsTravelCards and TeenTravelCards are a great companion to the child’s Passport.  The Passport is carried by the parents, but the KidsTravelCard or TeenTravelCard is worn by the child to provide identification and contact information if needed.

Your child’s safety is the most important consideration, but why should you choose KidsTravelCards or TeenTravelCards over competitors on the market?  First of all, because it’s a plastic card, rather than a laminated paper card.  KidsTravelCards and TeenTravelCards are worn with a soft, cotton lanyard around the neck for easy access and visibility.  The lanyards come in a wide variety of vibrant colors and have a break-away catch for safety.  KidsTravelCards and TeenTravelCards have a large square on the back for trip specific information, which can be written in with a white-board pen and then can be removed with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol).  KidsTravelCards and TeenTravelCards are more customizable than any other card available, with a 250 character field on the back for whatever information might be important for your child’s safety.  Things like health insurance information, allergies, medications, extra contacts, behavior or physical issues, etc., can all be printed on the card.
