People working in a company or business are usually working in different fields at the same time. These sectors can be different even though they are in the same building. Employees working in one sector are generally not allowed to move to another sector. There can be various reasons for this, the most important of which is the privacy of the work of these employees and the security of the information or infrastructure of the company or business. That is why every employee has an identity that is associated with his work. For this purpose, each employee is provided with an ID card which he/she has with him/her at all times. Without this card, they cannot move from one department to another.
Another reason for having this card for every employee is to prevent unauthorized people from going to the company building and workplace. Whenever an employee wants to enter the workplace, the security guard at the door first checks his / her employee card. Each card usually has a bar code on it that stores all the information of this employee. The security guard scans the employee’s card at the door, which verifies the information contained in the company’s central database of employees. This way, after completing the verification process of each employee with this employee card, he is allowed to go to his workplace.
The card is usually printed on a PVC sheet or hard paper and laminated with a plastic cover attached to a cloth strap that each employee wears around his neck at all times (during work). There are usually three sizes of this card. CR80, CR79, and CR100.
The CR79 is the smallest size, about the size of a normal credit card. Dimensions of this size are 83.89 x 66.80 in millimeters. This card is usually suitable for printing horizontally.

The CR100 is the largest of the three sizes, and ID cards designed in this size are usually suitable for vertical printing. It is 98.55 x 66.80 in millimeters.
