Pass size

what size should your accreditation pass be?

Interesting we often suggest that our clients spec a pass size that is slightly wider than a standard shirt/jacket pocket size. That way passes are always visible and save the security steward having to stop and ask someone to take it out of their pocket so they can check it. But of course remember that if you are using paper-insert laminated passes of a non standard size then you may have to order bespoke (i.e. not off the shelf) pouches.

Often for those working in technical areas the standard sized pass for that event may be too large and gets in the way — when we did F1 accreditation we did Cr80 (credit card size) passes for those staff working in the Paddock and Pits (on that score, we always suggest a lanyard safety breakaway clip).
