Welcome to the Bristol ID Family


Bristol ID Technologies was founded in 1975 as Bristol Graphics Inc and was a family owned business located in the town of Bristol, New York. In 1998 the business was acquired by a group of investors and re-named Bristol ID Technologies. In 2004 the company moved into a state of the art custom built facility located in Lima (pronounced /liːmə/), New York, just south of Rochester.

In 2008 Bristol ID acquired Cards by Dart and relocated the business from Dallas, Texas to Lima.

Today Bristol ID continues to grow and prosper under the leadership of a strong management team, the support of the Investors and, of course, our very happy customers. Click here to see what they have to say.
