Direct to card printers

Direct to card is by far the most common printing technique used today for plastic ID card printing in low volumes. This print process works by the printhead coming in to direct contact with the surface of the blank card. The printhead applies heat directly to the ribbon panels to print vibrant colours and crisp detailed text to the card.


Easy to use

Retransfer printers

Retransfer printers offer the highest possible print quality for any desktop card printer.   These machines use a two step process known as reverse transfer printing to create cards. This process offers a much higher print quality than their direct to card counterparts.  These machines can also print over the edge of the card giving a much better finish.
