- Valet services
- Special events
Why choose plastic parking permits over paper?
- Longevity – Plastic parking permits outlast paper — especially for repeated use — and that means less waste.
- Usability – Plastic parking passes are easier to take on and off your rearview mirror, making them more user friendly. They also hold up better than paper when shoved in a glove box.
- Appearance – The clean look of plastic and custom artwork enhances appearance, and your brand.
- Fraud protection – While paper parking permits can sometimes be easily copied, plastic parking permits are more difficult to replicate.
If you’re considering plastic parking permit printing, there are a few things to keep in mind.
- Temperature – If you live in a warm-weather environment, choose ABS as your card material to increase longevity.
- Die Cut – Choose a die cut shape that allows readability by parking enforcement. Standard and custom die cuts are available.
- Fraud Protection – For added fraud protection, barcodes, serial numbers, holograms, and RFID technology can be added to permits.
