Create your own beautiful and professional homeschool ID cards to receive teacher discounts at businesses where available.

Teacher and Student IDs

This is our first year homeschooling. I’ll admit, I am way out of my comfort zone. We’ve started, but it has been a struggle.

I was reading a homeschooling thread on Facebook and people were mentioning teacher discounts.



So what did I do? I made identification cards for both my daughter and me. I may go back and make the boys Pre-Kindergarten ID Cards so they don’t feel left out. One reader mentioned that she made id cards for all her children for field trips.

This could open up so many different possibilities for learning!

Discounts at museums, stores, anywhere you can get the educators discount.

We haven’t officially registered with the state, so I made our own cards. My friend told me that when she registered her school, there was a link where she could print out the same kind of card.

This is what ours look like:

I’m not sure what I expected. I thought it would be super hard to make, with lots of steps. But it was really easy.

  7. Type Your Name
  8. In the Text portion, for the first row I put Head Teacher and for the student I put the grade. Both then say the name of the school and School Year.
  9. Member Since would be when you started homeschool and the Expiration date I put as the end of the school year/beginning go the next.
  10. Add your birthdate and click the box for the “official looking barcode”

I save the file on my computer. I will print out the cards and laminate them soon.


I am so excited to be able to use our homeschool cards.

These are cool. Thanks for sharing. Why is a teacher birthdate on the card necessary?

Check to see if you can leave it off! It's a template they use.

Is it legal to create a teacher ID of you homeschool and do you have to print it out or can you save it to your mobile device?


Tuesday 6th of August 2019

Homeschools in the states where we have lived are legal schools, making those who lead the school teachers. In certain cases, businesses require teachers to show some form of id. They may also require the official letter stating that the homeschool is an actual school where the teacher is employed. It's up to the business what they allow and don't allow.

How were you able to get it to print the size of an id?

For me, it saved the size I needed. If it saves larger, then you can adjust the print size on your printer.
