Studio  background designs


Our studio background ID card templates are a hybrid of the studio and H&H doing the design work together. We have several pre-made templates that take care of the image and text styling and placement. You can design your own backgrounds to compliment each template. This hybrid workflow is beneficial because it eliminates the setup time needed for custom ID cards but still allows you to personalize the style and color scheme of the cards and even add things like mascots or other graphics schools may request.


Whether you prefer full creative control, or need to provide the school a more dynamic design, you can have your own ID card design. We have design guides to match the ID card type you select Or let our Design Center custom design this product for you!

Temporary ID Cards

Sometimes schools need ID cards fast for lunchroom or other admin purposes. In this case, the school may push for on-site ID card printing. An alternative is to use our hhschools software temporary ID card feature. Under the Project Setup and Reports menu go to the “Print Subject & Package Bar Codes” dropdown list. You’ll see a report “Temporary Student ID Cards – Avery Stock 5371” that will allow you to print temporary ID cards.

Print Subject & Package Bar Codes


hhschools formats the report for the Avery 5371 business card stock. Use this perforated stock to break the cards apart by hand. Or check “Stack sort” and bring your stack of sheets to a local printer to have them stack cut for a minimal fee.

Replacement ID Card Printing

Ordering replacement IDs in hhschools

  • In hhschools, tag the images that require replacement ID cards. Filter to those tagged images, then proceed with your service item order for ID cards.
  • PRO TIP: Check the “Reorder” box on the order to take advantage of a lower $7 minimum order charge (Reorders from a project of $200 or more that are submitted within 275 days (9 months) will be lowered from a $10 minimum-order charge to a $7 minimum-order charge.)
  • INSIDER HINT: Mark replacement ID card orders as a rush for faster service. Since ID cards are not expensive, you will likely be within the $7 minimum-order-charge for these small replacement orders.

Studio printing of replacement ID cards

Some studios ask H&H to produce the initial big run of ID cards. After that, they print any replacement ID cards at the studio. Use the hhschools software general purpose export to assist with this. Leverage hhschools as your school database. Look up students, tag them and export them out into your favorite ID card printer software.
