Creating Your Own Personalized Medical ID Bracelet Online

If you are on a budget, but you need to wear some sort of notification that you have a peanut allergy or other type of food allergy, you can easily make your own identification cards or a badge online. It will not cost you anything to do this, either. You have two options for receiving your ID cards after you design them: you can either print them from your printer, or you can order them from a company that offers free templates for making your IDs.

Follow The Easy Steps

One website that offers free templates for this purpose is Med IDs. You will probably want to print them on your home computer since you'll only need a few. Since you are taking the time to design your badge, you can either save the template or print several badges at the same time. Using card stock paper that is thicker than regular printer paper but not as thick as cardboard is an ideal choice. When you print your badges in color, they are bright and noticeable to someone who may try to help you if you have an allergic reaction.

Using a website like the one mentioned above not only allows you to have professional-looking identification cards or badges, but it also provides clear information for anyone who may be around if you accidentally eat a food that causes an allergic reaction. When you have an epinephrine auto-injector in your bookbag, purse, or pocket, and you list this on your badge or ID card, the rescuer will be able to find the best way to help you quickly. Emergency workers often look for identification when someone is having an allergic reaction.

Information To Include

Paramedics and others who help people in distress usually want to know how to treat your allergic reaction first and foremost. You will also want to put your doctor's name and phone number and the phone number of a family member who should be contacted. If you need to put any other instructions on it, templates often allow you to do that. You may want to write "Peanut Allergy" in bold print or other information that refers to your medical condition. If you decide to print out your badges at home on your printer, you can then cover them with heavy plastic covering and attach them to a chain that can be worn around your neck. Doing this ensures your safety and is a cost-effective way to get the identification cards or badges that you need in case you eat or come in contact with a food that causes your problems.
