San Diego, CA – ImageWare Systems, Inc. (AMEX:IW) announced that it’s German subsidiary, Digital Imaging International GmbH launched EPICard™, the newest addition to the company’s suite of ID software solutions. EPICard was designed with ease of use and simplicity in mind, resulting in a boxed, ID badging product that enables users to easily design and print ID cards. The EPICard solution comes complete with a camera, tripod, card printer and card printing materials.
