 This is a truly professional badge holder for your RFID security badge. It is milled from 6061 aluminum, electrostatically powder coated in any color, and can have any logo and/or text machined into the top section with colored laser cut acrylic inserts bonded in place. Your RFID security badge is locked behind a clear acrylite cover, which is held in place by four small fasteners.

Three examples of some custom Cases that have either been requested or were created to display available options... GOOGLE, TESLA, CSXPD.

They are professional, light weight, strong, tough, and just plain beautiful. They are an immense improvement over the cheap plastic envelopes that are all too common, and they can be designed specifically for you at the custom level.

The images (text and/or logos) are milled out of the aluminum case. The resulting voids can then have laser cut acrylic inserts bonded into place.

There is also a quick release version that allows you to quickly remove your card if needed. 

The acrylic inserts protrude from the surface of the aluminum case on both sides giving it an interesting 3-D effect.

 SINGLE BADGE QUICK RELEASE HOLDER. For Government employees, or anybody that needs it, there is a special quick release Holder that allows the easy removal of the card for inspection by security personal at checkpoints.

The BOEING Holder has a special feature.. A laser etched image on the backside of the cover. This Holder is a quick release version. The laser etched logo shows up nicely when the card is removed, but does not block visibility of the card when in place.

 THE PROCESS OF REQUESTING A CUSTOM HOLDER AND WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE : At the custom level pledge, you are able to request any external shape for the main aluminum case, any type of logo and/or text milled into the top section, any color of acrylic insert, and you can even request special features such as the compass added to the California Archaeological Society holder seen in the main video. I will email you once you have pledged and we can start the process. You will simply tell me what you would like. I will create some 2 dimensional drawings and email them to you for approval or alteration.

If you do not desire a custom Holder, these are the four stock shapes to choose from. They are offered in either single badge quick release or non-quick release versions. You may choose.

Some of you may have seen the posting I had for these Badge Holders only a few months ago. The initial design was pleasant but simple. During that projects funding period I greatly improved on the design. I incorporated all the new features into that projects rewards, but now I want to relist the Holders with all the new features, some of which I've only added days ago.

This is an fantastic replacement for those simple plastic envelopes that have always accompanied RFID security badges. I am pleased to produce something this cool for you.

Many thanks
