There are several benefits of designing your own parking permits other than being cost effective. Custom-designed permits are one-of-a-kind and stand out from the generic designs, thereby making identification convenient. Since these carry unique features such as colors, text, logo, holograms, etc., custom-made permits are more difficult to be counterfeited. That being said, their efficiency may be compromised if certain things are not kept in mind while designing.
The most important of these things is to remember the purpose the permits are meant to serve and not go overboard with too many colors, cute fonts, and decorative elements. The colors on the permits should offer contrast and carry reasonably sized letters in a simple, well-recognized font for better readability. Too much text can lead to confusion and divert focus from the information that matters.
ForgeGuard™ Security Paper Inserts are sheets that we offer for Printable Parking Permits. These sheets are made of 7 mil thick Security White™ paper and use Luminary Technology™ that prevents photocopiers from exactly duplicating the print. When copying is attempted, a void message surfaces on black and white prints while color prints reveal validation upon being rubbed on with a coin.
Parking permits printed on ForgeGuard™ Security Paper Inserts are virtually counterfeit-proof. We explain more about it in this video.
Printable Parking Permits are extremely easy to work with. You can begin by ordering a Parking Permit Hang Tag sheet from the available options. Then, you may either write on these hang tags with a pen or a marker or explore our wide selection of easy-to-customize parking permit templates. Once designed, the permits can be printed using an Inkjet or Laser printer and are ready for use once removed from the sheet.
Please watch this video where we take you through the process of printing your own parking permits.
Our Printable Parking Permits are made with plastic. They are sturdy, tear-resistant, and waterproof. The options that we offer allow you to add your text, logo, choose colors, upload clipart, and add a number sequence. When done, you may simply print your do-it-yourself parking permits using your home/office printer.
The pack size for do-it-yourself parking permit hang tag sheets varies depending on the tag type. While our blank printable hang tag sheets come in packs of 50, the blank and pre-printed clean-cut printable tags sheets are offered as 25 sheets per pack. Each ForgeGuard™sheet pack contains 10 sheets. Irrespective of the sheet type, each printable parking hang tag sheet holds six tags.
Self-laminating DIY parking permits are our 15 mil thick blank parking permits that feature a 3 mil clear polyester flap designed to seal and protect your written information. You may simply lift this flap to note down the information with a pen or marker, peel-off the liner, and press to seal the flap over the hanger. You may even seal in a label, photo, insert, or any other documentation to improve the integrity of your parking permit system. We offer colored self-laminating DIY parking permits as well.
Available in 10 color options, our colored do-it-yourself parking permits feature a vivid border and are blank to give you the choice to either write down the permit details or print a decal of your liking. The colored border makes the permit stand out and be easy to identify. Additionally, these can be used to execute a color-coding system to identify validity, zones, users, parking privileges, etc.
Adding a logo is a great way to personalize the permit. Care should be taken to use a good quality logo file and size the logo such that it is neither too small to be irrelevant nor too large to overpower all other elements. The permit size should also be carefully considered keeping in mind the expected viewing distance, application, and the amount of information to be displayed.
