Copying ID Type Cards is Easy with Xerox

Have you ever needed to copy an id card on to a single sheet of paper?  I was in the doctor’s office the other day and they needed to copy my insurance card and my license.  I watched as the assistant placed the card on the glass and pressed copy.  Then she took the paper and put it back in the paper tray, flipped my card moved it down to a place they had marked by a post-it note and then pressed copy again.  So this worked but took a long time to do both cards.  I wanted to tell her there was an easier way, get a Xerox product with the ID card feature.   The ID card feature takes all the guess work out of where to place the card on the glass and there is no putting the paper back in the paper tray. 

The instructions are easy for ID card copying.  No reloading the paper, no changing the position of the card, the machine takes care of all of that for you.  The instructions below are the basic steps.  Please search on ID card at the support page for your machine for the exact steps for your copier or multifunction device model. 

To use the ID Card Copy feature:

  1. Press the [ID Card Copy] button on the Control Panel. “Place Front Side and Press Start” will be displayed on the Display Screen.
  2. Place the ID card on the Document (Scanner) Glass, with the first side to be copied facing down. The ID card should be centered in the left half of the glass, with the short edge of the card facing the front of the machine.
  3. Press the [Start] button to copy the first side of the ID card. After the scanning has completed, “Place Back Side and Press Start” will be displayed.
  4. Turn the ID card over and place it in the same location on the Document Glass again, with the second side to be copied facing down.
  5. Press the [Start] button. The second side of the ID card will be scanned, and the copy of both sides of the card will be printed.

Check it out for yourself and see if this could be a helpful feature in your workplace.

      Hi pramod,
      Thank you for reading the At Your Service blog. The ID card feature prints “stacked” up and down. I do not see a way to print the cards side by side. Please see this solution for information on setting up the feature. For further information please contact your local support centre.

      Hi Ayanda,
      Thank you for reading the At Your Service blog. I am not sure what you are asking. If you need a copier please contact your local Xerox authorized dealer or look through the website to order online, select the Products tab at the top of the home screen to see all the available products.

    In Xerox WorkCentre 5875, is there a way to SCAN same way as the Copy ID feature? Meaning can something be scanned to ONE page, if it has two sides? I need a scanned copy of certified receipt showing both sides on one page.

      Hi Natasha,
      Thank you for reading the At Your Service blog. The feature is only available for the copy function. Please consider giving your local support centre a call for a possible workaround for you job.

    I use this feature a lot, but I cannot seem to find a way to change its default settings. It uses legal size paper by default which is far too large, and I want to change it to letter.

      Hi Nik,
      Thank you for reading the blog. You do not mention which printer you are using but the steps are similar for the printers that have the ID Card copy feature. Please take a look at the steps the setting you are looking for are in step 7 , specify the paper supply. If the steps do not help please consider contacting your local support centre.
