West Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
ID Card Group, a leading online retailer of ID card printers, ID systems, supplies, and accessories is going green with an Earth Day sale throughout April. Customers can save an additional 10% on eco- and earth-friendly ID supplies and accessories.
ID Card Group carries many eco- and environmentally-friendly ID printers, printing supplies, and badging accessories – all hand selected to help organizations meet green initiatives and reduce their impact on the environment.
Many organizations start with an earth-friendly Energy Star® printer, selecting from the popular Fargo HID direct-to-card (DTC) printer family, the Evolis Zenius, and the Datacard SD260 and SD360 printers.
All DTC printers deliver Fargo's traditional high-performance solutions with an energy efficient twist that supports organizations’ green initiatives while reducing energy costs. The Fargo DTC 1000 printer is a perfect entry level printer for the small organization, such as K-12 schools, membership clubs, libraries, shops, and more.
The eco-friendly Evolis Zenius printer also features standby and sleep modes, ErP (European Directive) compliance, and noise reduction technology for amazingly quiet operation. The Zenius delivers high-end card printing even in small batches.
Datacard’s SD260 and SD360, the first printers out to be easy on the environment, earned the Energy Star qualification by consuming far less electricity than their predecessors. They provide amazing image quality and a small footprint. Datacard also offers the EcoPure® printer ribbon with a biodegradable supply core that is easy on the environment, yet still delivers the same life cycle, performance, and reliability as standard Datacard ribbons.
“Reducing the environmental footprint is a worthy goal for all organizations and is certainly top of mind as Earth Day nears,” said Mark Soeth, ID Card Group president. “To help our customers go green, we wanted to provide additional savings on our earth-friendly supplies and accessories in April. Every little bit helps.”
Sale items include the popular bio-PVC cards - a biodegradable quality PVC plastic card that works just like a standard plastic ID card and can be printed on any card printer. Customers can choose from the Fargo biodegradable PVC plastic cards - or the popular made-in-the-USA generic bio-PVC plastic card. Made with BIOPVC™ to allow for faster bio-degradation - these cards decompose in 5 to 7 years. Typical PVC ID cards can take 20-25 years to decompose in landfill conditions.
Customers will also find recycled and bamboo lanyards on sale. Recycled lanyards are made of 100% recycled plastic, dyed with water-based inks, and available in 3/8” and 5/8" flat braid. The 100% bamboo lanyard - made from one of the Earth's most sustainable resources - is strong, dyed with water-based inks, and naturally antibacterial. Bamboo is a cellulose fiber that is easily broken down in the soil.
Popular badge holders in eco- and earth-friendly styles are also on sale. Made from earth-friendly materials that don't contain environmental pollutants or contaminants, these holders are available in top-load, horizontal and vertical styles. Eco-friendly badge holders are just as durable as standard badge holders and are comparable in price.
