Why Carry a Photo ID Card? Practical Uses in Daily Life

In today's digital age, where identification is often required for various activities, from accessing age-restricted venues to signing for parcels, the value of having a basic form of ID cannot be overstated. However, not everyone has or wants to carry their passport or driving licence for everyday ID needs. This is where The Card Project UK steps in, offering a practical and convenient solution with our biodegradable, credit card-sized ID cards. Let's explore the significance of these cards, their features, pricing, and the benefits they bring to everyday life.

Understanding the Basics of Our Photo ID Cards

Our ID cards are designed to be straightforward and functional. Measuring 86mm by 54mm, they fit easily into any wallet or purse, just like any other credit card. Each card features a photo, name, and date of birth of the holder, providing a basic level of identification for non-official purposes..

In line with our commitment to the environment, these ID cards are made from biodegradable plastic. This choice ensures that while they are sturdy and durable during their use, they will not permanently contribute to plastic waste, aligning with the growing global emphasis on sustainability.

Accessibility and Affordability of our Photo ID Cards

Priced from £6.99 plus postage, we strive to make our ID cards accessible to a broad audience. Recognising the importance of quick and efficient service, we aim to dispatch all orders within 24 hours of being placed.  If you're in a rush to get your card, we offer various postal options at the checkout to get it to you quickly.

The Non-official Nature of Our Photo ID Cards

It's important to clarify that our ID cards are not official government-issued identification. Instead, they serve as a basic form of ID for situations that require proof of identity or age but do not necessitate an official document. This distinction makes them ideal for everyday use, where the risk of losing valuable documents like passports or driving licences is a concern.  However, please do remember that as they are not official, it is down to the venue as to whether they will accept them or not.

The Benefits of Carrying a Basic Form of Photo ID

The advantages of having a basic, easily replaceable form of Photo ID are numerous. Here are a few scenarios where our ID cards can prove invaluable:

Everyday Convenience

Whether it's collecting a parcel from the post office or verifying your age at a bar, having a simple form of ID on hand saves time and hassle. Our cards eliminate the need to carry official documents for these everyday tasks, providing peace of mind and convenience.

Safety and Security

Carrying less valuable forms of identification reduces the risk and potential loss associated with losing important documents like passports or driving licences. In the unfortunate event of losing your ID card, it can be easily and affordably replaced, minimising the risk of identity theft.

Ideal for Young Adults

For teenagers and young adults, especially those who do not yet have a driving licence or passport, our ID cards serve as a great alternative for proving age and identity in various situations, from buying age-restricted products to entry into age-restricted events.


When travelling, especially abroad, it's advisable to minimise the times you need to carry your passport. For day trips or nights out, our ID card can serve as a form of identification, allowing you to keep your passport safely stored.

A Step Towards Environmental Responsibility

By choosing an ID card made from biodegradable plastic, users take a small but meaningful step towards reducing their environmental impact. It's a way of contributing to sustainability efforts without compromising on convenience or necessity.

Choosing the Right Photo ID Card for You

The Card Project UK's Photo ID cards present a simple, affordable, and eco-friendly solution to the everyday need for identification. While they do not replace official documents for legal or governmental purposes, they fill a crucial gap for non-official situations where basic ID is required. Their quick production and dispatch time, combined with their durable and environmentally friendly material, make them an ideal choice for anyone seeking a convenient form of identification.

Whether you're a young adult stepping into the world of responsibilities, a seasoned traveller looking for a practical ID solution, or simply someone who values convenience and security in daily transactions, our ID cards offer a solution tailored to your needs. In an era where identification is a key part of many interactions, having a basic, easily accessible form of ID can significantly streamline your daily routine.
