Company Cards Offer Braille Services

Plastic ID cards can incorporate extra benefits such as Braille for the blind and partially sighted – Company Cards takes a look at how they can help.

Since investing in the technology to offer a Braille option with our plastic cards several years ago, here at Company Cards we have seen more and more organisations now incorporating Braille on to our plastic cards, particularly plastic id cards.

Braille is a writing system used by the blind and the visually impaired which was created by Louis Braille in 1824. It can be found in books and, more commonly in the modern world, on signs, menus, elevator buttons; indeed anywhere that public information is shared. It has proven to be an invaluable tool of learning and communication for the blind and a key factor in equal opportunities.

Braille characters are small rectangular blocks called cells that contain tiny palpable bumps called raised dots. The number and arrangement of these dots distinguish one character from another.

Company Cards began to offer Braille services several years ago after a surge of companies requested this as a feature on plastic cards. We found that a number of organisations which require representatives to visit people within their homes were seeking to incorporate Braille on their plastic id cards; in this way, when making home visits, they could confirm their identify to reassure those that they are visiting of their authenticity.

Other Braille incorporating plastic cards that Company Cards have produced include plastic information cards and plastic business cards. If you have a requirement for Braille or plastic id cards, please contact our sales team on 01744 815475 to discuss further.
