What Is a Sports Identification Card?

A sports identification card (ID) is a document that may be used to prove a person's identity who is involved in any sports-related activity, event, tournament, institution, or organization.

How to Create a Sports ID Card?

A sports ID card is an important document that gives people access to establishments like sports facilities, arenas, gyms, among others. These IDs can also be useful in sporting events to help identify athletes, coaches, organizers, officiating judges, etc. Sports ID cards are just like any regular ID, so making one shouldn't be as hard. The pro tips below will guide you on how to make a professional and creative sports ID card format and layout.

1. Choose a Card Size and Layout Orientation

The first step in making an ID is to determine the size and layout orientation. The different ID card dimensions are as follows; 85.60 × 53.98 mm for most banking cards and ID cards, 105 × 74 mm for visa ID cards, 125 × 88 mm for US government ID cards, and 25 × 15 mm for SIM cards. In this case, it's ideal to use the first size because its applicable for common ID cards. After choosing the size and dimension, it's also important to decide if it will be in landscape or portrait ID format.

2. Pick out a Color Scheme and Design

The common ID cards are plain and simple, but you can always elevate your design by using creative elements. Carefully pick out the best color scheme that connects to the nature and purpose of the ID. Is the ID for professional use or is it for a one-day sporting event? Choose the most fitting fonts, designs, borders, and background for the overall layout.

3. Take High-Quality Profile Images

An ID comes with the bearer's profile image for better identification. The sports ID should feature a high-quality image that will really show the facial features of the bearer. The profile images can be taken by a professional photographer or you can take them yourself through the use of a good camera. Let your subjects wear the appropriate attire for the ID profile imaging.

4. Input all the Data and Relevant Information

The sports ID card should have a person's full name, address, and position. In a sporting event, for example, all the players, athletes, coaches, staff should have a designated ID for accountability and security purposes. An emergency contact person and number must also be indicated, useful during unforeseen circumstances.

5. Print the ID Card then Distribute

Review everything after you placed all the necessary information and components into the creative ID. Proofread all the data and see to it that the company or organization name is placed. You can proceed to print after reviewing carefully, send you finalized designs to the nearest print shops and allow them to print the final product.
