About the size and format of the design, there are vertical ID card templates and horizontal ID card templates. Choose the one that you like best. For company ID cards, I saw that people prefer using a vertical ID card design, which looks more elegant and modern.

What Should Be Included On An ID Card?
There are several important components of an effective ID badge:
- Company’s name and/or logo. You may choose to include a holographic overlay of your logo to prevent the creation of fraudulent ID cards.
- Employee Picture. The photo should be easily visible to speed along the verification process.
- Employee Name. The name of the employee is mandatory.
- Employee Signature. For extra security, include the employee’s signature on the card.
- Barcodes. Ideally, an ID card should have encoded information about the user (Barcodes, QR codes, Magnetic strips, RFID tags or Smart chips).
Here are some ID Card design elements that you must consider:
- Card orientation (vertical or horizontal). Decide whether the card should be single or dual-sided.
- Design. The design of the ID card should match with the other design elements used by your company.
- Fonts. Choose the font combinations according to ID card design. Usually a combination of two fonts is used for a company ID card design.
- Colors. Use the colors wisely. Do not choose too many colors. Use ID card background images.
🌿 How to Design ID Cards Online [Tutorial #1]
Let’s see exactly how to design ID cards online with MockoFun. Let’s make a simple identity card design. If you don’t want to start from scratch, use this identity card template and customize it with your details.
Step1: Create a New Document with ID Card Size
To make the ID card design, first you have to create a New document.
Choose a size from the standard ID card sizes: CR-50 (1.75″x3.5″), CR-79 (2.051″x3.303″), CR-80 (2.125″x3.375″), CR-100 (2.63″x3.88″). Or, you can choose any custom size. The ID card format can be either a landscape format (width greater than height) or portrait format (width smaller than height).
Set the size of your canvas in pixels, centimeters or inches.
For this employee ID card I use a landscape format for the ID card format.
Step 2: Make the ID Card Template
Go to Elements > Shapes > Geometric and use a rectangle shape for the background. Resize it to cover the canvas. Set the color to purple or any color you want.
If you want, you can use a Linear gradient or a Pattern texture instead of a solid color.
Add a new rectangle shape and set the color white. We’ll use this as a background for the ID card information (ID card details) like employee name, company, email, phone, etc.
So, for now we have this blank ID card. By the way, if you need an empty ID card, you can make a blank identity card really easy with MockoFun.
If you want to make ID card background images, add geometric shapes from our Elements > Shapes > Geometric gallery like circles, lines, triangles, etc.
Use different Opacity levels and add Shadow to create geometric backgrounds.
Step 3: Add the ID Card Text Details
Go to the Text menu on the left and add the ID card information.
The MockoFun online text editor has over 800 free fonts that you can use in your designs. Use simple fonts to write the information. Usually, for making a company ID card design we use simple text with no text effects.
For this name tag design using simple clean fonts is the perfect choice. Let’s use classic fonts like Open Sans font and Merriweather font. Here is a list of fonts combination that you can use.
- Futura Bold & Souvenir
- Rockwell Bold & Bembo
- Helvetica Neue & Garamond
- Super Grotesk & Minion Pro
- Montserrat & Courier New
- Playfair Display & Source Sans Pro
- Amatic SC & Josefin Sans
- Century Gothic & PT Serif
If you need cool text effects for other design projects, check our awesome text styles collection. Also, check out this list of free font symbols if you want to copy paste text symbols into your text.
(Optional) Add the ID Card Signature
For security reasons, you can add the employee signature on the company ID card. You can use a scanned signature or a digital signature. In MockoFun, you have lots of signature fonts to choose from.
Step 4: Add the ID Card Photo
The ID card picture is also very important. So, go to the Upload button from the left menu to upload your photo in MockoFun. Then, click on the photo to add it on the screen.
For the ID card photo, you can use a square profile picture or a circle profile picture using a square mask or a circle mask.
Go to Elements > Shapes > Geometric and add a circle shape or a square shape. Click on the photo and then click on the Add Mask button from the top menu to make a circle image.
The ID card photo is either a circle photo or a square photo. But, if you want to get creative, with MockoFun you can crop pictures into shapes using other shapes like heart, triangle, polygon, etc.
Step 5: Add Graphic Elements
MockoFun has lots of graphic elements like vector graphics, illustrations, clipart, png images, icons, shapes and other elements to use in your name tag design.
All these graphic elements are found in the Elements category from the left menu.
Step 6: Save the ID Card Template
The Save button from the left menu allows you to save the template in My Templates Gallery.
Step 7: Download the ID Card Design
Click on the Download button if you want to download the image. You have three file format types available: JPG, PNG and PDF. For print, the best file format is PDF.
Step 8: Share the ID Card Design
If you want to share the template with other people, use the Sharing options. Turn on the sharing and then Copy link.
How it works? After you copy the link, you can place the link on your website, social media, etc. When someone clicks on the link will get a copy of the original template.
If you delete the template or turn off the sharing option, the link will no longer work.

To create a graphic background for the ID card we’ll use geometric shapes. But first, go to Background on the left menu and set the color #00c9ff or any other color that you like.
Then, go to Elements > Shapes and search for a square shape. Add the square on the middle of the card template and resize it. Change the color to white.
Step 3: Add Triangle Shapes
Go to Elements > Shapes > Geometric and add a triangle shape. Distort the triangle vector shape and rotate it. Duplicate the triangle shape and create a triangle background.
Use different colors for the shapes like #00b6fa and #00f3fa. You can also add Gradients to the vector shapes.

So write the name of the employee; use the Raleway font or any other font that you like. Duplicate the text layer and add the job title. Use the Raleway 300 which is much thinner. If you want, you can also insert text symbols.
Step 5: Add the Profile Photo
Go to Elements > Shapes > Geometric and add a circle shape. Set the color of the circle to white. Then, click on the Shadow button to add a soft shadow effect.
Click on the Duplicate button to make a copy. Make this circle black and set the Shadow to 0%.
Step 6: Make a Circle Image
Go to Uploads and load your profile picture and click to add on the document. To make circle images use the Add Mask button from the MockoFun’s circle image generator
So, click on the photo layer, click on the Add Mask button and then choose the black circle as mask. After that you can move and position the profile photo.
