Can anybody recommend a membership card printing system which will enable printing of standard credit card sized plastic membership cards which will draw data from CiviCRM and add a photo to the card using a camera, in real time. The photo may optionally be then stored in CiviCRM if we so choose.

The other option to print Membercard is using an extension developed by Webaccess Global which generates card in pdf format.



I have a client that uses CardExchange Producer to print their membership cards using real-time CiviCRM data.

Note that compatible systems will most likely want to connect to your database via a MySQL connection - and since CiviCRM is most often hosted on a web server outside the office, that presents a technical challenge. You should be prepared to do some sort of VPN or tunneling between your web server and CiviCRM for real-time connections. My client uses Windows, so I configured Plink to connect to the server with an SSH tunnel.

  • Thanks Jon. I'll let our DBA figure out the connection issues :) Commented Jul 30, 2018 at 14:20
