Card printers, often also called plastic-card printers, are electronic desktop printers with single card feeders which print and personalize cards (standardized under ISO/IEC 7810).
Color and monochrome card printers provide exceptional quality.
The principle of printing is the same for practically all card printers: the plastic card is passed through a thermal print head at the same time as a color ribbon. The color from the ribbon is transferred onto the card through the heat given out from the print head. The standard performance for card printing is 300 dpi (300 dots per inch, equivalent to 11.8 dots per mm). There are different printing processes, which vary in their detail : Thermal transfer, Dye sublimation, Retransfer printing.
Options included with our color card printers are E-Media Software, dual side printing, printer ribbons, overlay laminates, clear overlays, scratch-offs, holograms and cards of much more.
Applications: Alongside the traditional uses in time attendance and access control (in particular with photo personalization), countless other applications have been found for plastic cards - customer and members’ cards, for sports ticketing and in local public transport systems, for the production of school and college identity cards as well as for the production of national ID cards.
