Paper is a good material too. Or it could be a combination of paper and
plastic (laminated card). Plastic cards also differ a lot, - there are
waterproof plastic cards, cards with a hologram, one-side vs. two-sides
print, etc.

If it is acceptable from a legal point of view, it would be good to have
a OSMF membership card with a photo and name. The same about a written
document on completion of a workshop or a training course.

There are certification systems in the field of programming, in foreign
language learning, in product photography, etc. Why not in OpenStreeMap
cartography and geographic information system?

In any case, - paper, plastic, or a combination of two - the task and
cost of mailing membership cards to owners remain.

Certainly such membership cards or certification system is not easy to
implement. Besides there was no research yet if there is a demand.
