Case Studies

Colleges / Universities

Many universities are asking for a "one-card" solution. Gone are the days of multiple cards needed by a student. We can help you design a multi-function card that can be utilized for dorm access, library privileges, cafeteria, registrar management and event access.

The Setting:
A high profile college needed to prevent students from duplicating their parking hangtags. They wanted a product that parking security could easily identify as valid or forged.

The Solution:

With the help of Bristol ID, the campus now uses a foil security feature on its parking hangtags that make the valid tags instantly identifiable.


Plastic cards play a pivotal role in all forms of government, including the Federal branch.

Bristol ID's feature-rich security options are sure to help your customer's site stay secure.

The Setting:
A software programming dealer was working with a Federal Agency to secure all computers at the agency's location. The challenge was that each computer had multiple users throughout the day and the agency wanted to make sure that only specific users had access to specific files.

The Solution:

With the use of Bristol ID's variable data imaging capability, the dealer was able to provide highly durable cards that worked in perfect harmony with the proprietary software. The agency was able to deliver these cards to hundreds of thousands of users and track every single one.

Health Care:

All employees need to be properly identified in a hospital setting. We also offer parking management tools such as hangtags and car window decals.

The Setting:
A dealer who specializes in the healthcare industry realized patient safety was a top priority for the hospitals he works with. His customers were looking for a way to have patients be instantly aware of who was treating and working with them.

The Solution:

Bristol ID, using their Teslin product, was able to create color-coded badge title identifiers for each staff member. These oversized badges were used in conjunction with existing photo IDs so patients could easily know if they were being approached by a Doctor, RN, LPN or someone else.


Paper gift certificates are rapidly being replaced by plastic gift cards. Plastic gift cards look much more professional, give the establishment more credibility and are a great way of showcasing a business in full color. Bristol ID also manufactures custom or stock gift card presenters.

The Setting:
A large restaurant chain wanted to reward customer loyalty and, at the same time, gather specific customer preference detail for a more targeted marketing program. It was also important to the restaurant that the card design and style chosen would stand out to the consumer.

The Solution:

Working with a Bristol ID dealer, the restaurant was able to develop a custom shaped key tag with a special barcode that would track purchases for the reward program as well as consumer activity for future marketing campaigns.

Sports & Leisure:
Ski Resorts

Season ski passes are one of our specialties. For over 20 years, we have been manufacturing ski passes with a variety of technology, material and security options. RFID antennas, magnetic stripes and bar codes can all be integrated.

The Setting:
A popular ski resort wanted to enhance its ski pass security and update its hotel room key cards.

The Solution:

Working with a local Bristol ID dealer, the resort was able to incorporate Bristol's customizable embedded holographic foil into the card design, meeting the challenge of added security. They also carried this design over to their hotel room keys, providing consistent branding throughout the resort.


We can create custom RFID parking tags in any shape and size with essential security features such as embedded holographic foil, automatic numbering, and expiration dates.

The Setting:
A top university needed UHF technology in their parking hangtags to enhance on-campus security.

The Solution:

Working with Bristol ID dealer, the college was able to develop a cutting-edge but cost-effective parking tag solution in an extremely short lead time.

Travel & Entertianment:

Why not consider a hotel key card with advertising or discounts for your spa or restaurant?

The Setting:
A metropolitan hotel that specialized in wedding and large events was looking for a way to enhance the customer experience.

The Solution:

Working with a local Bristol ID partner, they were able to offer personalized hotel room keys for their special events. Conference schedules, thank-yous from the bride and groom as well as promotions from local merchants were all able to be printed right on the room key. An added benefit was that this approach helped defer the card cost for the hotel as they were able to include this in the event package pricing.
