Top 5 Factors to Think about Before Purchasing an ID Card Printer

You don’t have to feel overwhelmed shopping for an ID card printer. Instead, focus on these five key factors to help narrow your search. 1) Single or Dual Sided Printer

Most card printers are available in either single or dual sided models.

Single sided are less expensive, but they require you to flip the cards if you want to print on both sides. Dual sided card printers will save you a considerable amount of time on large batches. 2) Dye Sublimation or Reverse Transfer

Dye sublimation printers are the most common and least expensive type of printer.

They infuse color onto cards with a ribbon with panels, but they have a tendency to leave a white border on each card. Reverse transfer printers (also called re-transfer) utilize a ribbon and transfer film for a higher quality print that offers full-bleed with no border. 3) Volume Requirements

Companies that print larger batches will want printers with larger hopper sizes faster print speeds and that have high yield ribbons available.

If you own a smaller business and won’t be printing larger batches, you can save money by opting for a basic printer that doesn’t have features for high-volume printing. 4. Lamination and visual security Laminating ID cards significantly adds to the cost of them while also increasing their durability, but this is essential for cards which will be regularly swiped through a reader.

You can also use lamination to add holograms for added security.

However, there are also less expensive ways for visual security measures, such as watermarks, holographic cardstock, and hologram stickers. 5. Connection type

All ID card printers can be directly connected to a PC with a USB cable.

If you need to connect to a Mac, be sure to select a printer with Mac compatibility. For connecting to a network to print using multiple computers, select a printer with Ethernet. What are PVC ID Card Printers?

A PVC card printer is another name for an ID card printer.

PVC (also known as polyvinyl chloride) is a name for plastic. Even though it usually makes people think of construction and plumbing, it’s a durable plastic that has a wide range of uses, including printing ID cards. A PVC card printer, therefore, can refer to any type of photo ID maker. How do PVC Card Printers Work?

PVC plastic card printers can use any number of methods to transfer a design on to an ID card. The most common techniques to print on PVC cards are dye sublimation and reverse transfer. Dye Sublimation

Dye sublimation is the most popular way to print IDs on cards, and it uses a ribbon that has panels of all three primary colors along its length.

While the card is printing, a print head with heated elements goes over the ribbon. It evaporates the ink on the ribbon where appropriate, transferring it to the PVC card. Dye sublimation is a term that is commonly used to refer to color printing. For black-and-white printing, the term is known as resin thermal transfer.
