What is a retransfer Printer?

Reverse transfer or retransfer printers are similar to their DTC counterparts in that they use heat to transfer ink to the card. The retransfer process has an extra step in which, the image is first transferred onto a think strip of film which is then bonded to the card.

  • Capable of printing on uneven surfaces, ie smart cards.
  • Prints over the edge of the card.
