Club Membership Cards
« on: February 18, 2013, 04:17:11 AM »
Does anyone know of a source that would print a club membership card?  It doesn't have to be plastic, but something on the line of the AHA membership card that would have the members name and a date on it.  We're hoping to arrange discounts at several LHBS's and beer distributors where members could show their card to get the discount.

I'm sure there are online solutions, but I don't know any.  For a DIY solution, we print membership cards on the pre-perforated business card stock available at most office supply stores. You can get a template and design everything in word.  You can also get lamination sheets pre-cut for business cards to really make it look like you know what you're doing.

It would be nice to look like I know what I'm doing, for once.  I'm pretty good with Word and Photoshop, so designing a card wouldn't that tough.  I didn't know about the pre-cut laminate sheets for business cards, though.  That info might come in handy.

We're pretty lucky in the sense that we have a member who runs a print store and so has the whole plastic credit card setup. In fact, he uses those as his tags that he attaches to his kegs.

One thing we do, just for CYA purposes, is the back of the card is also printed with a disclaimer about consumption and being an idiot. I have no clue if it has any standing legally, but it's there as a good reminder to folks - don't be a dummy, dummy.

We just do business cards through a local printer and have a laminating machine at the meetings for those who want to laminate them. It's a very budget friendly approach.

And it comes in handy at all the local Brewpubs too

After we designed our card I had PDF file made, 10 cards on an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet.  Using Adobe Acrobat Pro I inserted the club member’s names and printed them on a nice grade cover stock.  I cut them on one of those office paper trimmers, than I laminated them front and back.   They turned out great and very professional looking.  When new members join it’s very convenient to make more.
