Create, manage & print ID cards using BioStore’s card management suite

BioStore works with all well-known card types, but contactless are the most popular with all the electronics embedded inside a plastic card. They are robust, water proof and because there are no electrical connections and no contact with the card readers, there is nothing to wear out!

All card management and production is carried out in BioStore’s IDManager and Card Designer. You can use Card Designer to design new card layouts or select from our library of templates for a good starting point to work from.
